iDOLM@STER XENOGLOSSIA COLLECTION 1

Posted by RommelS On January - 15 - 2013

iDOLM@STER XENOGLOSSIA COLLECTION 1107 years ago, the Moon was destroyed in a massive cataclysm that shattered Earth’s former satellite into 81 quintillion tons of orbital debris. However, thanks to super-science, the Earth itself was saved and today no one really thinks much about that century-past disaster. Which is why when teenage Haruka Amami auditions for something called the Idolmaster Project, she thinks she’s trying out to be a singing idol. Instead, Haruka finds herself at a secret school run by the Mondenkind Agency, living with a group of other girls who have also been selected as candidates to pilot an IDOL – an advanced robot specifically designed to intercept falling chunks of moon rock.

 
Unfortunately, there aren’t enough Idols for all the potential pilots, and there are some who will do anything to earn the coveted seats, even if the consequences are lethal. And then there’s the question of whether the Idols are really just robots, because from almost the first moment, Haruka starts to feel emotions resonating from within the Idol called Imber. The mysteries are mounting, the competition is furious and the mission to save Earth is on!

UN-GO COMPLETE COLLECTION

Posted by RommelS On January - 2 - 2013

UNGO COMPLETE COLLECTIONSYNOPSIS:
Some call him the “Last Great Detective.” Others call him the “Defeated Detective.” What’s certain is that he’s Shinjurou Yuuki, a young man with a passion for mysteries and a talent for solving them that has made him the target of dark forces now stirring within the sinister underworld of a near future Tokyo.

 

That could prove lethal, given that not even the other “good guys,” including the police, are exactly on Shinjouro’s side. Fortunately Yuuki’s not completely on his own, and with the aid of his uniquely talented associate Inga, he’s ready to cut a swath through the veils of secrecy that have been laid before him.

HEAVEN’S LOST PROPERTY

Posted by RommelS On January - 2 - 2013

HEAVENS LOST PROPERTY SEASON 1SYNOPSIS:
Tomoki’s life was normal until a wish-granting angelic android named Ikaros fell from the sky and started calling him master! Of course, thanks to his raging teenage hormones, most of Tomoki’s wishes have something to do with panties. And that makes things pretty complicated, because one simple wish can lead to a rampaging robot made out of frilly undergarments or turn bloomers into bombs capable of blowing up entire neighbourhoods! If Tomoki doesn’t learn to control his impulses around Ikaros and be more careful with his wishes, the chaos will only get crazier. Luckily, even with such a dirty mind, Tomoki’s heart is in the right place. His hands, however, are a completely different story.

HETALIA AXIS POWERS: PAINT IT WHITE!

Posted by Sandra On November - 25 - 2012

Humour in anime series isn’t rare, as it is more about the amount of humour in it, yet with Hetalia, humour is in such abundance all the way through. In the past two series, Hetalia has produced more laughs than any other anime I could think of out there. Each character represents a country, one of my personal favorites being Italy who constantly fights with Germany even though he tries to get along with anyone.
