DVD Review: Transformers Animated - Season Three (2009)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Tuesday, July 29, 2014 0 comments

"Transformers Animated Season Three" is the final season of one of the more modern adaptations of "The Transformers". Taking place right after the second season (check out my reviews of the prior seasons here: Season 1, Season 2) we see that some of the Transformers are battling the Decepticons to prevent them from using the space gate on Cybertron. Meanwhile on Earth we have Sari learning something special about herself that she didn't know about but her father did (I'm not going to spoil it and I'm finding it very hard not to spoil the secret as well). Sari becomes very upset and refuses to talk to her dad and moves in with the Autobots. Meanwhile back in space we have Megatron and Starscream busting out of a space prison and take over Omega Supreme so that they can plan an attack on Earth. While at a burger joint we see Sari reuniting with her father but is soon attacked by Headmaster. Optimus Prime does his best to stop Headmaster but soon after we see something very strange and scary happening with Sari that will change the great Transformers war. Oh I wonder what it could be?

"Good Luck Girl! Binbogami Ga! The complete Series" is an animated comedy series about a girl named Ichiko Sakura who is young, pretty, well endowed, and extremely lucky... A bit too lucky. Meanwhile in the other realm we are introduced to Momiji who is a Poverty God and she has been assigned a mission and that mission is to suck some of Ichiko's good luck right out of her as she has way too much and it is causing an imbalance that will cause harm to the world. We also learn that Ichiko is also a bit of a terrible person as she is very selfish and refuses to give up her luck even if giving up her luck means making other people happy as she doesn't care about other people. After an accident that leaves Ichigo Sakura's butler in hospital she starts to learn that being selfish comes at a cost. This is only one of the many things that happens in this show as Momiji's quest to drain Ichiko Sakura of her overbearing good luck leads to many weird adventures. Will Momiji get lucky and complete her goal? Or will Ichiko's good luck cause more harm to the people that she loves tolerates? (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

"The Original Mr. Peabody and Sherman - The Collector's Edition" is an animated show about one very clever dog named Mr. Peabody that lives in his penthouse in Manhattan City, New York. One day while strolling down the streets of New York, Mr. Peabody spots two bullies beating up a kid with glasses and then he goes off to save the kid from trouble. That kid turns out to be none other than Sherman who also happens to be an orphan. Mr. Peabody ends up adopting Sherman but he soon finds out it is hard to raise a child in a small apartment.  On Sherman's birthday Mr. Peabody builds him a time machine called "The WayBac Machine" just so Sherman has places to roam around and so he can get a good education.  In this show we will see our time traveling heroes visit famous people of history including: Benjamin Franklin, Paul Revere, The Wright Brothers, Cleopatra, and many, many, many more (and I really do mean many, many, many more) people of history all wrapped up in this four-disc set.

Blu-Ray Review: Princess Mononoke (1997)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Saturday, July 26, 2014 0 comments

"Princess Mononoke" is an animated drama film from those fine folks over at "Studio Ghibli". This film starts off with a prince named Ashitaka who is riding his loyal pet Elk (who looks more like an Antelope) named Yakul only to hear that their village is being attacked. What they saw attacking them was something rarely scene and that thing was a Forest God in a form of a Wart Hog but not just any Forest God as this Forest God was so corrupted with hatred that he turned into a vengeful demon. After a long hard battle they slay the demon but not without tragedy as Ashitaka suffers a burn on his right arm that mutated into a curse and he hasn't got long to live.  Ashitaka then travels afar to a forest to where he could possibly get his curse lifted.

On his journey he rescues two injured people who have fallen off a cliff from battling a Wolf God and then heals them up.  Ashitaka returns the two people home only to find out that they are iron miners that work at an iron mine.  Lady Eboshi (the boss of the mine) sends him her gratitude and shows him around. Turns out that they are mining iron from under a mountain to where Forest Gods live and the Forest Gods are not happy and plan on taking down the mine. Now Ashitaka is caught in the middle and he doesn't want both sides to fight but to live in peace instead and put this war to rest. This is sure to be a real clash of the titans.

Anime Review: Nekomonogatari Black (2012) DVD/Blu-Ray Combo Pack

Posted by Retrokaiser On Thursday, July 17, 2014 0 comments

"Nekomonogatari Black" is an supernatural action show and is also the next volume of the "Bake/Nisemonogatari" series. This series is also a prequel series that takes place the year before Bakemonogatari. The show starts off with a less mature Araragi (a human that's also part vampire) talking with his youngest sister about how he has a crush on a girl that he has dubbed "Ms. H". After a long and awkward conversation they conclude that what Araragi is feeling is lust and not love as he only likes "Ms. H" for her "appealing breasts". Araragi leaves the house and runs into Hanekawa and notices that she has a bandage on her head due to her step-father beating her. Araragi wants to help but Hanekawa refuses to let him help and even begs him not to tell anyone.  Later that night while walking home he spots a weird cat girl in her underwear draining energy out of people. Araragi confronts this cat lady only to get his butt whooped and left in a puddle of his own blood and if it wasn't for his abilities he'd be dead. Araragi wakes up at Oshino's place (a dude in a Hawaiian shirt that battles demons) only to find out that the cat lady was Hanekawa possessed by a cat spirit and now they must find a way to stop the Cat Demon and save Hanekawa. Will Araragi track Hanekawa down and sent the Cat Demon to the dog pound? (Click "Read More" to read the full review).
