SYNOPSIS: Some say that life is like an unfolding tapestry, but living at the Hidamari Apartments is more like being part of a patchwork quilt, one that constantly changes as bits and pieces of the lives and dreams of the young artists who make this extraordinary residence their home are added to the ever-expanding pattern.  When we first met Yuno, she’d just been accepted to the prestigious Yamabuki Art School and it was up to her new neighbors at Hidamari to help her find her way in the big scary world.  Now a seasoned vet of the Hidamari Apartments herself, Yuno’s newest challenge is to help the latest arrivals, Nazuna and Nori, acclimate to life on their own.  Of course, since it IS Hidamari, there are still lots of trials and tribulations ahead, and nothing will ever go quite as expected. But with friends like Miyako, Hiro and Sae ready to lend a hand, there will always be a ray of sunshine at the end of every storm in Hidamari Sketch x Hoshimittsu – Blu-ray.

SYNOPSIS: The Magic Spheres are incredibly dangerous and powerful magical artifacts, capable of absorbing negative emotions and transforming everyday objects into monstrous BEMS (bug eyed monsters).  So when a demon manages to scatter six of them through the gate between the World of Magic and Earth, someone’s got to get them back.  Unfortunately, that job falls to master of disguise (and fan servicey costumes) Lime, the sometimes monstrous and generally lecherous monster hunter Bass and their ooey-gooey shape-shifting slime companion Poogie, none of whom are probably the best choices for a task of such monumental importance and urgency.  On the other hand, the whole situation is sort of their fault to begin with, and while their decision to infiltrate a Japanese High School may seem a bit oddly timed, at least it gets them a new friend in the form of cute but clueless schoolgirl Miyuki!  Will this motley band of would be BEM hunters be up to the task of fingering panty stealing pocket purses, pinning down living syringes with nastily pointed agendas and turning up the heat on malevolent candles intent on snuffing out entire cities?   The hunt is on in JEWEL BEM HUNTER LIME!

Mai Mai Miracle Kickstarter Reaches First Stretch Goal, Second Stretch Goal Added

AnimeBlurayUK

mai_mai_miracle_kickstarter_pamphlet

It’s seems that All The Anime’s debut Kickstarter Campaign is a “huge” success, as not only did the Mai Mai Miracle Kickstarter reach its $30,000 target within 24 hours but their English Dub stretch Goal of $60,000 has also now been reached. This means that everyone who backed the project for a copy of the film will receive it in both English and Japanese format, which is of course great news for anime fans.

To continue the trend of offering ‘additional bonuses’ a second stretch goal has been added, this time allowing the backers/supporters to choose what they want to be included next. The first option is an Audio Commentary from Jonathan Clements, the author of Anime: A History, and someone who has made many appearances on the Manga UK Podcast. The second option is for a Replica of the theatrical pamphlet that was handed out in cinemas during it’s initial cinematic run.

SYNOPSIS: When Haruka gets the chance to take the entrance exam for Saotome Academy for the Performing Arts, it seems as though she’s one step closer to her dream of composing songs for her favorite singer, Hayato. However, this is no gleeful high school musical experience, and Haruka’s hiding a dreadful secret that may silence her musical ambitions forever. And even if she does get into Saotome, the competition will be more brutal than going on Japan’s Top Idol! That’s because, as a writer, Haruka could be paired with any one of six radically different male singers. Will it be upbeat Otoya, serious Masato, flirtatious Ren, split-personality Natsuki, optimistic Syo, or the unapproachable Tokiya, who’s rumored to be Hayato’s brother? And just to make things more complicated and awkward, writers and singers are expressly NOT allowed to get romantically involved! Can one girl and six handsome young men learn to make beautiful music together in a strictly platonic sense? They can if the oddball staff of Saotome, most of whom are current and former idols themselves have anything to say about it in Uta no Prince Sama 1000%!

SYNOPSIS: 1925 – six years since the end of the Great War, four years since women were allowed to join political associations and one year since Emperor Hirohito assumed the throne. Japan is a nation re-inventing itself in many ways, not the least of which is the introduction of a strange new type of school uniform called the “sailor suit”. And though the game of baseball may be new to Japan, relatively speaking, at least it remains the exclusive realm of men and boys. But when a local player arrogantly states that girls should become housewives instead of going to school, female teenage firebrands Koume and Akiko respond by forming their own baseball team. It’s shocking. It’s scandalous. And yet, in a nation in which almost anything seems suddenly possible, it may just be the start of something greater than any nine girls can imagine. It’s not just a game, its history in the making in TAISHO BASEBALL GIRLS – COMPLETE COLLECTION!
