11-eyes-dvd-screenshot-2

It only takes one eye to watch anime but in the event of this particular series 11 Eyes (11Eyes) may be needed; especially with the amount of events transpiring at once. In any event what can one expect to receive from this latest subtitled-only-release by MVM Entertainment? Well let’s find out in our review of 11 Eyes – The Complete Collection.

Synopsis:

Raised in an orphanage after witnessing his sister’s suicide, Satsuki Kakeru’s life has already been dark and cruel enough. When he and his friend Yuka are thrown into a alternate dimension called the Red Night, it takes a gruesome turn from bad to horrific. Now, trapped flickering between our world and the Red, Kakeru quickly discovers that he and Yuka are not alone, and that, together with the other so-called “fragments,” they must defeat the malevolent entities known as the Black Knights.

Facing monsters from beyond imagination and at the center of a deadly hunt, Kakeru’s only chance of saving their lives now hinges on finding the power buried within himself and unraveling the mystery of his own origins and family… if he can survive long enough to do it! The horrors of the Red Night are just the beginning of the nightmare as shocking truths are exhumed! Read more of this post

MVM to Release Berserk, Chobits and Ergo Proxy on Blu-ray

berserk-anime-screen-lq

In a rather unexpected and surprising announcement UK anime distributor MVM Entertainment have today confirmed via social media that they will be releasing Berserk (the original 1997 anime series), Chobits and Ergo Proxy on Blu-ray later this year; all of which are currently available to pre-order from MVM’s online store anime-on-line.

Chobits was previously announced as a Blu-ray release earlier in the year at MCM Comic Con May 2016; but news of MVM releasing Berserk and Ergo Proxy do come as a bit of a surprise. Interestingly enough Madman Entertainment had only recently announced that Berserk would be getting a Blu-ray release; which leads me to suspect that MVM are working with Madman Entertainment to release a Region B Blu-ray release of the series. It’s currently unclear what Blu-ray master Ergo Proxy will use but it’s assumed that Chobits will use the same discs masters created by FUNimation in America; which coincidentially were Region B compatible.

The-Familiar-of-Zero-F-DVD-Screenshot (6)

It’s been a long-time-coming; but the final series of The Familiar of Zero will soon be upon us – so does love overcome all dangers? Well according to this series yes! but what did i think of this DVD release of the The Familiar of Zero F by MVM Entertainment? Well find out below!

Synopsis:

Their relationship has been building ever since she first accidentally kidnapped him from Earth, but even with all they’ve been though together, are Saito and Louise ready to take their relationship to the next level? The answer, sadly, will have to wait, as once again events in Halkeginia are running out of control and Saito and Louise find themselves, along with several other Void Mages, pressed into service to save the world.

And while any mission involving Void Magic is sure to suck at some point, the suck-age is certain to be compounded by the fact that one of the mages they’ll be working with is the amply endowed elf Tiffania. Who may have designs on getting familiar with Saito herself. Betrayals, reversals and the inevitable side trip to the hot springs lie ahead as the evil plots get plottier, the dysfunctional relationships get even more dysfunctional, and lots of stuff goes BOOM for only vaguely justifiable reasons!

MVM Entertainment continues to push-out the anime releases this month and in our latest DVD Review we take a look at the first season of Hidamari Sketch; which is of course animated by SHAFT.

Synopsis:

For years, Yuno’s dreamed of attending Yamabuki Arts High School, but now that she’s been accepted, it means the scary prospect of moving away from her home and family for the first time! Fortunately, Yuno quickly learns that if her new neighbors at the eclectic Hidamari (Sunshine) Apartments aren’t technically family, at least the majority share the bond of being fellow art students.

From second year students like Hiro and Sae, who try to behave like helpful older sisters (mostly successfully) to her hyperactive new neighbor, classmate, and best friend Miyako (who has the scariest apartment ever), Yuno begins to build the support network she’ll need for dealing with strange characters like her oddly masculine landlady, her cosplay-obsessed homeroom teacher, her tooth-chattering principal and all of the other odd denizens who inhabit her chosen world of art.

It won’t be easy, and it won’t always be pretty, but with her friends at her back Yuno’s going to reach for the stars! Read more of this post
