The unwritten rules of mecha combat teams seem to require that there’s always at least one mysterious loner in the group, but the enigmas and conundrums surrounding Ange Kuroki are so extreme that even the new pilot’s gender is a riddle!

As the pieces of the puzzle come together and the layers of the riddle slowly peel back, it becomes apparent that everything Izuru, Asagi, Kei, Tamaki and Suruga have encountered are interconnected to a greater extent than they ever imagined. Deadly reversals and shocking revelations await!

Unboxing: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – Collection 1 and Collection 2 (Blu-ray) [UK]

fullmetal_alchemist_brotherhood_collection1_unboxing

Usually i’d only do one unboxing video per Blu-ray release, however seeing as i recently picked up both instalments of the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Collection i’ve decided to unboxing them together, that way you can see ‘exactly’ what you’ll get and how they interact with each other.

The tale of Manga Entertainment UK releasing the Collection Sets for Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is a long and amusing one, as originally the series was released as five 13 episode instalments, afterwhich the UK Distributor opted to release a ‘complete’ collection (like they did on DVD), but Aniplex were against it – and so two half season sets, much like the ones released in America several years ago, was released.

Region: A (Confirmed NOT Playable in the UK)
Boxart states Region A Only

Price: $49.78 / £30.86 (Excluding postage)

Episodes: 13 – 24 (2 Disc Set)

Plot: The care and feeding of a pet girl is something only those with the most dogged determination should attempt, but Sorata Kanda never really had a choice in the matter. Tasked with keeping the acclaimed but highly dysfunctional and unfocused artist Mashiro Shiina from forgetting to eat, brush her hair, or wear clothes, it’s been a long, slow battle to get to the point where he’s reached a general understanding of her extreme quirks. Which doesn’t mean that Mashiro doesn’t still walk out of the dorm half-naked. It’s just that Sorata now understands that it’s going to happen.

Unfortunately, the whys, wherefores, and how-tos of comprehending the opposite sex aren’t going so well on other fronts. Misaki’s attempts to escalate her campaign to win Jin’s affections take a disastrous turn, and Nanami’s going to have to learn to come to terms with her feelings for Sorata while adjusting to the third wheel that is Mashiro. And then there’s still Sorata’s “problem” of picking up cats that he’s not supposed to keep.

Unfortunately, Noa’s not the only driven female in SV2’s lineup, and when fate puts Kanuka Clancy in charge of Noa, not only do fireworks ensue, but Captain Goto decides to throw a little alcohol on the fire! But that’s far from the most dangerous situation facing the thin steel line, and between escorting visiting royalty and pop singers at one extreme, and facing off with mysterious phantom robots on the other, there’s no rest for the weary, overworked squad.

And when someone starts sending threatening messages to Goto and potentially deadly “accidents” start occurring, it’s up to the whole force to band together and find the culprit before someone on the Ingram team has their plug pulled permanently! The bad guys will learn the hard way that you never mess with girls who pilot robots bigger than your getaway car as SV2 stomps out crime in PatLabor TV: Collection 2!
