abruktv-episod1-final

If you our subscribed to our Youtube Channel (AnimeBlurayUK) then you may have noticed a new video series being uploaded over the course of the weekend; well this video series is our new monthly / bi-monthly, i still haven’t decided, video log whereby I discuss all things anime related that have appeared on the website as well as do some potential video reviews and impressions.

yokai_watch-poster

Last week Nintendo of Europe released a playable demo of the Yokai Watch onto the Nintendo 3DS eShop and as the game is such a ‘turning point’ for Anime and Nintendo fans so I thought it be a good idea to play the first 15 minutes of the demo to highlight what it has to offer.

In this playable demo of Yokai Watch players will find themselves taking control of Nathan Adams, and his Yokai Sidekick Whisper, as they explore a limited area of the town and help people in need who are suffering from Yokai affected troubles. The challenge here is to find and defeat three different Yokai placed around the map, two of which can be spotted on the map straight away while another can only be found once talking to people in the town.

Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F Achieves Massive Success in UK Cinemas

dragonballz_resurrectionf_screenshot_friezaPutting anime into cinemas can be a questionable and tricky business; but with Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F it seems all the hardwork put into bringing it into UK cinemas has paid off; as everyone seems to be going out and watching it.

What started off as a ‘one-day-only’ cinema event exploded into multiple screenings across the UK, with even VUE getting in on showing the film; the demand was so much that it caused Manga UK to delay the home video release of the title just so they could show it on more screens which, in turn, means that Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F is now being shown on UK cinemas until the 8th October 2015.
