Reviewed This Month:

Nazca Vol. 2 - Blood Rivals

When we last left the band of reincarnated Incan souls, Kyoji was seemingly killed. But, Kyoji searches his soul, finds his true mission and a reason to live. Through it all three more sleeping souls are awakened in Dan, Seino, and Tatsuko on the eve of Tate's trial run at bringing Iriyatesse to the world. Tens of thousands of lives are lost in a matter of seconds as a small town at the base of Mt. Asuma is pounded into the ground by the mysterious power.

The Dog of Flanders

Nello's life has always been full of hardship. He was raised by his impoverished grandfather in the old days -- when hard work was an unescapable aspect of life and only the most well-to-do children got an education. But, Nello is blessed with a remarkable gift to draw, a loyal dog named Patrash, and a dear friend in Alois, the governor's daughter. However, life is hard for the impoverished. Patrash's real owner wants the runaway dog back, Grandpa isn't getting any younger, Alois's father is overbearing and disapproving of Nello, and being in debt is the deepest hole to escape from...

Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Rose Collection Vol. 1

This economically-sound DVD contains the first seven episodes of the series the way they were released domestically. This means after the fourth and seventh episodes, there are two sets of credits, original credits with song translation and then the English credits. This gives the viewer a chance to watch the episodes individually, as a series of two volumes, or as a non-stop Utena marathon.

Sailormoon - Memorial Album of The Musical 8

"Last Dracule's Overture" was the title this season, and to much delight, it was an overwhelming success. Fans recovered over the loss of Fumina Hara, the previous actress of Usagi Tsukino / SailorMoon; Hara left due to her longing to be successful on her college entrance exams. All was well in the end. Hara passed her exams, and the Musical went fine, led by the third SailorMoon actress, Miyuki Kanbe. Kanbe, being only of 15 years of age, did much of what was expected of her, and much more. Two new performers followed suit of Kanbe, being Hidemasa Edo as Mamoru Chiba/Takishiido Kamen and Teruyo Watanabe as Setsuna Meioh/SailorPluto. The normal set of baddies were almost completely new, besides the returning of Seniors Yuta Mochizuki, Ryuji Kasahara, Ado Endo and Miki Kawasaki. All and all, the cast performed great as a whole.
