Four DVDs/Blu-rays to help chase away the post con blues
With MCM London Comic Con now behind us, post con blues are likely setting in for some, so we here at MCM Buzz decided to have a look at a few DVD’s and Blu-rays that could help get you past those post con doldrums. We start with: Bleach Series 15 Part 1: This latest release of the long running anime series is the start of a new arc and not only does it deal with some of the fall out from the end of the last arc, but also introduces a new enemy...

Bleach Series 14 Part 2 DVD Review
With the end of the current Fall of the Arrancar and the storyline surrounding Eizen looking set to be wrapped up, this latest Bleach release courtesy of Manga Entertainment promised to potentially be a must have purchase for both fans and casual viewers alike. This season features episodes 304-316 and as mentioned, on paper, looks to be a must have DVD. However once you start watching it you begin to see that all may not be what you first thought... 

Good Luck Girl! Binbogami ga! DVD review – When fortune becomes misfortune

Good Luck Girl! Binbogami ga! DVD review – When fortune becomes misfortune
Dozens of new anime series premiere every year, and it’s easy to get lost in the sheer volume of them. Plenty of shows get swept away with the flow and don’t get the kind of attention they deserve, ending up as those hidden gems you come across only so often. Good Luck Girl! is one of those gems. Self-centred schoolgirl Ichiko Sakura has everything good going for her: looks, popularity, money, and literally anything else she might ever... 

Ben-To Complete Series Collection review

Ben-To Complete Series Collection review
No matter where I begin, this is going to sound ridiculous. So here goes nothing. Ben-To is an anime that can’t be expanded on much further than the title itself. It’s an anime about bento. It’s an anime about lunch. That’s literally it. But for a premise so stupidly simple, it was a thoroughly entertaining watch. The series starts with our protagonist, Yo Sato, innocently minding his own business as he enters a supermarket with the nonchalant...

Evangelion 3.33 UK Release Indefinitely Postponed

Evangelion 3.33 UK Release Indefinitely Postponed
Back in July, MCM Buzz reported that the hotly anticipated UK release of anime series Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo had been unexpectedly delayed until February this year. At the time, the announcement caused some frustration amongst fans, sparking a Twitter conversation that parodied the series’ title in various ways. Nevertheless, the tweets were largely light-hearted, suggesting a feeling that the eventual release would be worth the... 

What if Disney made Attack on Titan?

What if Disney made Attack on Titan?
Recently the phenomenon that is Attack on Titan did a crossover with Marvel Comics and featured such characters as the Guardians of The Galaxy in the process, which got us here at MCM Buzz thinking. What would happen if Disney (who of course own Marvel) took it one step further and made a spoof version of the popular anime series featuring their own beloved characters? With this in mind, myself and our talented artist Claire Courtney collaborated... 

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate DVD review

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate DVD review
Bayonetta: Bloody Fate manages to retain the over-the-top nature of the videogame with a lot of action, crazy lines and fun references (yes, we do see her start up a motorcycle in that way). From Gonzo and director Fuminori Kizaki of Afro Samurai, Bloody Fate is a somewhat loose adaptation of Platinum Games’ videogame, which was released back in 2009, as the Umbran witch Bayonetta awakens after 500 years to retrieve her lost memories. Opening with... 

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Official First Season DVD Review

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Official First Season DVD Review
If you’re anything like us here at MCM Buzz, you probably grew up alongside a cavalcade of anime that made your childhood – Dragon Ball Z, Beyblade, Pokémon, and in particular for me at least, Yu-Gi-Oh! The card game based anime gave us so many memories that we still take with us today. So when I heard the first season of one of my favourite coming of age television shows was having its entire first season released on a box set, well, I sure...
