Cartoon/Anime

Justice League vs Teen Titans

Justice League vs Teen Titans – The latest DC animated movie, this time the Justice League is possessed by Trigon, and Robin is sent to the Teen Titans to learn teamwork. The saddest part of this is that it’s the wrong Robin since this time it’s Damien but I guess he needs to have his turn. Rated PG-13.

Tonari No Seki-Kun – Tonari no Seki-kun or My Neighbor Seki is based on a manga series but has been turned into a dubbed series by Sentai Filmworks (I’m kind of shocked honestly).

Not Rated.

Gugure Kokkuri-San

Gugure Kokkuri-San – A sub only release from Sentai Filmworks about a small strange-eyed girl obsessed (or only eating) with instant ramen that summons the powerful fox spirit Kokkuri-san on accident. He takes pity on her and vows to become her protector even as she attracts other strange character. Not Rated.

Utawarerumono OVA

Utawarerumono OVA – There’s a little confusion as to when this set was actually released as the link says that it was released April 12th but other sources have it as March 29th. So hopefully it’s released either way at this point. This is a dubbed release from Sentai Filmworks and is a collection of side stories from the rest of the Utawarerumono series. Not Rated.
