FAFNER HEAVEN AND EARTH

Posted On January - 27 - 2013ADD COMMENTS

FAFNER HEAVEN AND EARTHFafner the movie is a visually arresting and powerful story for those familiar with the TV series. Unfortunately a weak point of the film is that for those who are not familiar with the Fafner TV show, the film, set a couple of years after the events at the end of the TV series, will have a difficult time following the movie or appreciating its emotional impact. For fans of the TV show, they will enjoy this epilogue to the series.

 

One of the strong points of the movie, of which there are many, is that it shows that actions have consequences. Although they saved the island from the invading alien Festum and international military threats, Kazuki, our hero, is a broken young man. He is nearly completely blind at this point and suffers the physical and mental scars of his battles and the loss of his dearest friend Soshi. However when a new threat arrives, it reopens his old wounds and sees him entering the fray again to protect the home he hopes against hope that Soshi will return to.

Posted On January - 27 - 2013ADD COMMENTS

INFINITE STRATOS COMPLETE COLLECTIONSYNOPSIS:

Ten years ago, the development of the revolutionary Infinite Stratos powered exoskeleton changed the world’s balance of power overnight. Unfortunately, while the distribution of IS systems to every nation on Earth has ushered in a new era of peace, the fact that only women have thus far been able to pilot the Stratos systems has sent the relationship between the XX and XY-chromosomed halves of the human race into a spiraling tailspin!

 

When fifteen-year-old Ichika Orimura is suddenly discovered to be the first male with the ability to control an IS, whatever plans he might have had for his own future are tossed out the window even as he’s thrown to the wolves and enrolled at the otherwise entirely female Infinite Stratos Academy by order of the Japanese government!

LOST GIRL SEASON 1SYNOPSIS:

Bo is a gorgeous renegade, an irresistible beauty, and a deadly succubus. For years, she had no idea what she was – or why every new lover died in the throes of passion. She fled one corpse after another until a chance encounter with the puckish thief Kenzi exposed Bo’s existence to the clandestine order of the Fae. This ancient society of supernatural freaks exists outside the realm of mere mortals. Within their world, there are only two sides: Light and Dark.

 

Each member of the Fae must choose who they will serve – but not Bo. Driven to understand her own aura of desire, Bo vows to live on her own terms, even if it means existing in the abyss between good and evil. With the help of the mischievous but loyal Kenzi and the handsome shapeshifter Dyson, Bo will use her powers of seduction to unravel the riddle of her mysterious past.
