New Releases for August 09, 2016 – Supergirl – Funimation Anime Strikes again

DVD/Blu-Ray

Movies

None this week!

TV

There’s a lot of TV series out this week. Our recommendations are Supergirl, especially since it’s moving to the CW and this is the only real way to catch up on it because of its move from CBS and before any cast changes. The second is 11.22.63, which is the Hulu/Stephen King miniseries starring James Franco who goes back in time to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy. It’s really one of the only things that James Franco has been in.

Cartoon/Anime

Scooby-Doo and WWE: Curse of the Speed

Scooby-Doo and WWE: Curse of the Speed – Because WWE has basically bought the rights to Scooby-Doo and the Flintstones and Scooby-Doo continues to sell out, this latest movie stars Scooby gang as they are in a car race with members of the WWE, including the head of the organization for some reason. I would say that the race makes really no sense, but then again one of my favorite Scooby-Doo movies growing up was Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf. Not Rated.

Garo the Animation: Season One Part Two

Garo the Animation: Season One Part Two – The second half of Garo the Animation, where Leon struggles to find a reason to continue to fight and Prince Alfonso tries to maintain control of his kingdom as everything falls apart. I really need to finish this just to find out how this actually fits in with the rest of the continuity. Not Rated.

Absolute Duo: The Complete Series

Absolute Duo: The Complete Series – At the special Koryo Academy, students are taught to be future peacekeepers and are forced to battle their fellow students. Most of these magical weapons manifest as melee weapons but new student Tor’s weapon manifests as a shield making him an “irregular.” He’s paired with another student named Julie and together they struggle to keep up with the rest of the students at the academy as they fight for their lives and expulsion. Absolute Duo is one of the second wave of Broadcast Dubs from Spring 2015, finally making its way to home video. Not Rated.

Barakamon: The Complete Series

Barakamon: The Complete Series – After professional calligrapher Handa loses his cool to a art critic, he travels to the country to regain his inspiration. But the strange neighbors around him make focusing on his art easier said than done, especially the young girl Naru, who used his apartment as a secret base before he arrived, that won’t leave him alone. Barakamon actually has a prequel series, Handa-kun, that takes place when he was a young kid in high school that’s been chosen as a Broadcast Dub for Summer 2016!

Wake Up, Girls!: TV Series

Wake Up, Girls!: TV Series – The TV series of Wake Up, Girls! continues the tales of the Wake Up Girls as they work with Green Leaves Entertainment to continue to promote their new band. This is a sub only release from Sentai Filmworks just like the movie was. Not Rated.

Video Games

No Man's Sky

No Man’s Sky – The long awaited video game where you can basically explore the universe! The movie has the opportunity to generate over 18 QUINTILLION possibilities as you’re able to explore various planets and you may never even run into different players, though you can submit planets to a public database. Available for PS4 and PC. Rated T for Teen.
