Kung Fu Panda 3

Kung Fu Panda 3We quite liked Kung Fu Panda 3 and if you’re a fan of the franchise, this is definitely one to pick up.

When the chi stealing Kai returns from the spirit world and proceeds to steal the chi of the kung fu masters, Po travels with his father to the hidden panda village to learn the way to become one with himself, what it’s like to be a panda, and how to use chi to defeat Kai before he wipes out the entire country.

TV

Adventures In Babysitting

Adventures In Babysitting – Disney Channel made an unnecessary TV remake of the 80s cult favorite Adventures in Babysitting but with very little in common with the orignal movie. Not Rated.

Cartoon/Anime

One Piece: Collection Sixteen

One Piece: Collection Sixteen – Finally the end of the Thriller Bark arc and onto the Sabaody Archipelago Arc as the Straw Hats fight Celestial Dragons and encounter mermaids in a 24 episode with episodes 373 – 396 ( I have no idea why this trailer’s episode count is off). We’re kind of sad to see the Thriller Bark arc end just because we’ve had a fun time watching it on Toonami! Not Rated.

Selector Spread Wixoss: Season 2

Selector Spread Wixoss: Season 2 – The second/continuing season of Selector Infected Wixoss where girls battle with a card game for their wishes to come to life, though with terrible consequences. After the first season, Ruko is now on a quest to find her LRIG, her card that was alive in the previous season, and discovers even more terrible things about the Wixoss game. Not Rated.

Yurikuma Arashi: The Complete Series

Yurikuma Arashi: The Complete Series – I’m not even sure how I explain this. The director of Sailor Moon and Revolutionary Girl Utena makes an anime about two girls in love but have to deal with a race of hyper-intelligent man eating bears and one of them vowing revenge on all bears.Yeah it’s weird. The trailer doesn’t help either except I love the part at the end. Not Rated.

Den-Noh Coil: Collection 1

Den-Noh Coil: Collection 1 – An English dub from Sentai Filmworks (actually Maiden Japan though not sure if its being released by Maiden just because it’s an older title). But Den-Noh coil takes place in a near future where augmented reality is common place, but after a move to the country, Yuko notices that her new classmates seem to take things a little more seriously with hacking and some major differences in the game. Not Rated.

Love Live School Idol Movie Blu-Ray Cover

Love Live! The School Idol Movie – The final of Love Live! The girls have one more performance as a group as several of them prepare to graduate but others have plans to break them up before they get a chance to win their last performance. Not Rated.
