With a long running manga behind it and Production I.G taking control it was hard not to be a little excited for Blue Spring Ride when the series started airing last season. So, did our anticipated Shojo series live up to the hype and my high hopes?
P.A Works are undoubtedly one of my favourite anime studios. They aren’t my most favourite studio by any means, but they are up there alongside Studio BONES and the like. So, when I heard they were coming into the Summer season with an original series I was quietly hopeful for a strong show. What we got was anything but…
Aldnoah.Zero has undoubtedly become one of the most talked about anime this season. I sped through the first ten episodes of the series over a couple of days and then watched the remaining episodes as they launched on Crunchyroll. The show has viewers pretty split on their opinions so far, so here’s what I thought of the show!
I approached the first volume of The Seven Deadly Sins with a curiosity. I’d been interested in the series since Crunchyroll added it to their manga service when it first launched, but due to the huge collection of other titles on offer I ended up setting series aside. However, now I’ve picked up the first volume of the series in print and have gone through it to review!
Crunchyroll have made their first major announcement at their Otakon panel in the form of announcing they’ll be streaming the Cardcaptor Sakura anime series. The series will only be available to stream in the US and Canada.
The site will be streaming both the subbed and dubbed versions of the show and all seventy episodes of the series will go up on Crunchyroll on the 12th of August. The series was recently rereleased by NIS America on Blu-ray and DVD.
Last week we happily reported that Viewster had added a number of Aniplex shows to their streaming line-up. Today we have more good news as the service has made yet more announcement about their anime line-up!
The service have now added Fate/Zero, Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari to their site. All three shows can currently be bought in the UK thanks to MVM Entertainment. Fate/Zero can also be streamed on Crunchyroll while Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari can be streamed via Daisuki in the UK.
Viewster also confirmed that they’ll be adding Oreshura to their catalogue next week, so keep an eye out for that! You can find all of the series mentioned above and many more right here.
Streaming service Viewster have announced the addition of more Aniplex shows to their anime line-up! The service have today added the following shows:
- Oreimo seasons 1 and 2
- Servant X Service
- Silver Spoon season 1
- Blast of Tempest
Servant X Service, Blast of Tempest and Silver Spoon can all be found and streamed on Crunchyroll in the UK. However, this is the first time we’ve had access legally to the first season of Oreimo as Crunchyroll only have the rights to the second season of the show here.
All of the shows mentioned above and a good deal more can be found on Viewster right here
With most anime in the summer season four or five episodes in, so I’ve decided to put my thoughts together quickly on the shows I’m watching currently and how they’re doing. This season overall is a more enjoyable season than the last and I’ve found myself watching the following shows:
- Akame ga Kill!
- Blue Spring Ride
- Black Butler season 3
- Sword Art Online II
- Tokyo Ghoul
- Terror In Resonance
I’m also watching Fairy Tail and Captain Earth, but neither of which really count in this section… especially considering I’ve quietly fallen behind with Captain Earth.
UQ Holder! is a relatively new series from Ken Akamatsu. The series is set within the same universe and 70 years after as his previous work, Negima! Magister Negi Magi, but readers can jump into UQ Holder! right away with no trouble if they haven’t read the work that comes before. With that said we’ve jumped into the first volume of the manga to take a look at what it has to offer.
