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

We take a trip back to Maid Latte to see what Misaki and Usui get up to in the remaining episodes; but is it a happy-ever-after or a disaster story waiting to happen? Well for now we will keep it a secret but what did we think of this DVD release by MVM Entertainment? Find out in our review of Maid Sama – Part 2.

Synopsis:

If Misaki Ayuzawa didn’t already have enough problems being the first female student council president of the formerly all-male Seika High School and carrying on a secret double life as a waitress at a local maid cafe by night, the fact that she may be starting to have feelings for Usui, the first boy to discover her dual life, has pushed her nerves to the breaking point. But fate certainly won’t leave it at that, and now she has to deal with a new guy who is not only extremely anti-girl, but a hypnotist as well!

Toss in an organized crime cartel that wants to replace the maid cafe with a butler bistro, some very annoying new transfer students, and the inevitable trip to the hot springs and everyone is guaranteed to end up in hot water one way or another! Read more of this post

UK DVD Release of Infinite Stratos II Pushed Back To September

Infinite_Stratos_Screenshot6

Although an official announcement from MVM Entertainment has yet to be made listings on both Amazon UK and Anime-On-Line suggest that the UK DVD release of Infinite Stratos II, alternatively known as Infinite Stratos – Season 2, has been delayed until the 28th September 2015.

Infinite Stratos II was originally expected to be released in March but was then altered to an 8th June 2015 release; however the series has once again been pushed back until the end of September. As mentioned a reason for the delay has not been mentioned, so we can only assume that its due to assets (or the discs themselves) not being available for the expected date.

So; to sum-up Infinite Stratos II has been delayed and it will now be released on the 28th September 2015 on DVD.

We take a trip to Elder Tales and end-up getting confused and lost; but that aside what does MVM Entertainment’s DVD Release of Log Horizon – Part 1 have in-store? Find out in our DVD Review.

Synopsis:

Elder Tales has become a global phenomenon, immersing millions of players in its online fantasy world. However, something goes wrong with the twelfth expansion pack. Eight-year veteran Shiroe and 30,000 other players suddenly find themselves trapped in the game’s no-longer-fictional universe!

Except it’s not even exactly the game they knew: things are in different places, the portals don’t work, and if a gamer was playing an avatar who wasn’t a physical match for their real self… well, let’s just say that everyone who’s been playing is going to have to make some serious adjustments to their new world view.

On top of that, the former Non-Player-Characters are now self-aware and working towards their own ends. This collision of the Elder Tale people and players with seemingly impossible skills, abilities, and knowledge promises to be cataclysmic. Get ready for heroes to rise and new legends to be forged as Shiroe and fellow players Naotsugu and Akatsuki discover what happens when sword and sorcery becomes real! Read more of this post

So, can a girl spitting in your face ever be a GOOD thing? Is this relationship bound for disaster or great expectorations?
