Coming Soon! The Secret World of Arrietty

I'd like to share with everyone the trailer for the The Secret World of Arrietty. 

This is another amazing movie brought to you by Disney and Studio Ghibli, the same people that brought you other great movies like Ponyo and Spirited Away.
Hayao Miyazaki does a great job of bringing the world of the borrowers to anime.

Arrietty is a borrower who lives with her family under the floorboards of a house. The first time she goes out borrowing with her father she is seen by a young boy who is at the house.  The boy causes no harm and actually tries to become friends with Arrietty, but the other big people of the house are suspecting things and it forces the borrowers to take extra precautions and plan a move from the house.
Check out the Secret World of Arrietty coming to theaters on February 17th, 2012 in the US.

Mini A-Kon V in Denton, TX.

Exciting news for anime followers of the DFW area. There will be a Mini A-kon in Denton coming on Saturday, February 18, at the Denton Public Library North Branch from 10am to 4pm. 
Of course you can expect anime, manga, cosplay, contests, and panels!  This is a great treat to get con-goers back into the spirit of anime conventions. Mainly because the large conventions in Dallas don't happen until the summer, this is a good midway point to meet while you wait for the summer conventions to start up.

Last week, Asian Kung-Fu Generation also known as AKG or Ajikan released their best hits album in the US.  
In case you don't know who Asian Kung-Fu Generation is, let me refresh your memory.  One of Naruto's opening sequences features the song "Haruka Kanata" translated into English as "Far and Beyond."  Also in the best hits CD will be "Rewrite" from the original Fullmetal Alchemist series, as well as other great songs by AKG.
My opinion, if you are new to the AKG scene this is definitively a CD to get, it has a lot of favorite tracks for sure. But if you are like me and already have over half the CD then maybe just downloading the tracks you don't have might be a good option.  That is if you plan on downloading less than 8 tracks, currently has the entire 17 track album for sale at 8.99 compared to downloading each separate track at .99 a pop.   Definitively an amazing price for a great album! Of course some of use are used to seeing these prices at like triple this amount. Why is this so cheap? Because its a US release not an import!

I give this CD 5 out of 5 Stars.

B GATA H KEI: Yamada's First Time

DVD Box Set Release on January 31, 2012  
This is definitively one you don't want to miss!   Episodes for B Gata H Kei are available streaming directly from

My Review:

Yamada is a young high school girl who is in search for the perfect cherry. She finds it in a boy named Kosuda and that's where the crazyness starts.  Yamada tries to get near Kosuda but he is too dumb to notice her advances thinking that she is out of his league.  
Honestly this series is out of your chair laughter every episode.  Recommended mostly for anyone 13 years of age and older for sure. Some of Yamada's crazy antics are a bit risque, actually everything she does is pretty risque but that's what makes this series so enjoyable!
If you enjoy series like School Rumble you will enjoy this series as well, if you don't mind the perv level being taken up a couple of notches.

I give this a 5 out of 5 stars. 

"The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya" Appears Awesome!

It has been a long awaited arrival for fans of the Haruhi Suzumiya anime and light novel series. But at last the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya has hit the shelves.   I definitively took the time to check this one out.  Here's my review:  (no spoilers)

Great story starting at the beginning with your average Haruhi filled crazyness until one day when Kyon wakes up and finds that no one seems to know who Haruhi is. 
This movie is like one super episode where everything is twisted up. With a 164 minute movie plus extras on the DVD.  Plus we get to see a different version of Yuki Nagato who is absolutely adorable!

Additional features are:
  • DVD Features: Interactive Menus / Japanese 5.1 Audio / English 5.1 Audio / Optional English Subtitles
  • DVD Extras Disc: Location Hunting / BGM Recording / Special Screening in Tokyo / Special Screening in Kyoto / Cutting, Dubbing, Editing / PV Making / Teasers / Trailers / Commercials / ASOS Brigade Episode
Plus there's a DVD/Blu Ray Combo pack that is also worth a check if you have a Blu Ray disk player. 

I give this movie 5 out of 5 stars on this DVD release.
