Home Entertainment: ‘Attack On Titan’ Season 2 Review

Immediately following the events of Season 1, Attack On Titan Season 2 follows the Survey Corps as they try to answer the terrifying question of why there is a titan embedded inside the wall, and the origin of titans on the attack inside Wall Rose. At the same time, a never before seen abnormal titan, the Beast Titan, appears. New mysteries need to be answered, and new threats overcome, how will the brave soldiers of the Survey Corps fare?

Attack on Titan Season 2 Review

The story and narrative of Attack On Titan Season 2 is equally as compelling as Season 1; it so unique, exciting, and filled with mystery that it keeps the viewer constantly engaged. Every episode has plenty of action, and most characters are given their time to shine in scout-on-titan fight sequences. However, some characters definitely take a backseat this time around which may disappoint some fans. Most notably affected are Captain Levi,

The battle for humanity’s survival continues as the 12-episode second season of the epic anime adventure Attack on Titan arrives on DVD, Blu-ray and Limited Edition Blu-ray on February 26th, courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Based on Hajime Isayama’s New York Times best-selling manga with over 2.5 million copies in print, Attack on Titan tells the story of humanity’s last remnants, sheltered behind large “walls” in fear of the giant humanoid “Titans” who hunt them. When the wall is breached and Eren Jaeger’s mother is killed, the young man enlists in the Scout Regiment, the military’s front line in their war to reclaim humanity’s home, angrily declaring that he’ll kill all the Titans.

Produced by the celebrated Wit Studio (The Ancient Magus’ Bride), Attack on Titan: Season 2 features the voices of Yūki Kaji (My Hero Academia), Yui Ishikawa (NieR: Automata) and Marina Inoue

Attack On Titan Part II DVD Review

Director: Tetsuro Araki.

Starring: Yuuki Kaji, Yui Ishikawa, Marina Inoue, Hiroshi Kamiya, Bryce Papenbrook, Trina Nishimura, Josh Grelle.

Running Time: 320 minutes

Certificate: 15

Attack On Titan became such a phenomena that fans didn’t exactly wait around for a dub. And why would they? Nobody wants to become slapped with a spoiler, and fans of the show not up to date with the manga already have that to deal with. However, the DVD and Blu-ray release will certainly appeal to many fans and new people interested in the incredibly popular series.

WIth Erin now facing trial for the amazing power of turning into a titan, the show continues with its shocks and brilliant twists. Erin is taken on by the Scout Regiment, but they are soon pursued by their greatest foe yet, a female titan who may also be a human. This mystery propels this set of episodes into a much

Attack On Titan finally arrives on DVD and Blu-ray and what hype it has to contend with. Pretty much heralded as the greatest thing to hit anime since that series about sliced bread, Attack On Titan brings a new series to the forefront with incredible visuals and a mouthwatering premise that is completely engrossing from the very first moments.

Set in the future after giants known as titans start to walk the Earth, we find ourselves in an enclosed city where humanity survives. It’s not much of a survival though, as many characters feel restricted by their current predicament. The show starts as it means to go on with a colossal titan (even bigger than the regulars) smashing through the walls, thus allowing for other titans to start eating the humans.

Blue Exorcist: The Movie Blu-ray Review

Director: Atsushi Takahashi

Starring: Nobuhiko Okamoto, Bryce Papenbrook, Jun Fukuyama, Johnny Yong Bosch, Kana Hanazawa, Christine Marie Cabanos, Kazuya Nakai, Kyle Hebert,

Running Time: 98 minutes

Certificate: 12

Blue Exorcist: The Movie is a simple extension of the popular TV show. It doesn’t supply a plot that elaborates or adds to the series’ story arcs, but instead offers up an emotionally powerful film and solitary story. This means that newcomers will be welcome, and although they won’t quite understand every character relation, the main points are easy to pick up. The basics see Rin (Okamoto/Papenbrook), the biological son of Satan, now a full-fledged exorcist, simply going about his business getting rid of demons.

The film opens up with a powerful action sequence which sees a possessed train under attack from the exorcists. It’s a delightful opening action sequence that is rather lengthy but doesn’t outstay its welcome.

Sword Art Online Part 4 DVD Review

Director: Tomohiko Ito,

Starring: Haruka Tomatsu, Cherami Leigh, Kanae Ito. Stephanie Sheh, Kouichi Yamadera, Marc Diraison, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, Bryce Papenbrook,

Running Time: 175 minutes

Certificate: 15

Sword Art Online returns for the concluding part of its story line. These last selection of episodes give closure to all the plot elements that came before, but there’s still a feeling that the entire season could have just extended the original premise or ended after the first arc.

The main focus now is the love triangle between Kirito, Asuna and Kirito’s sister who has fallen in love with her own brother within the virtual world. This is a deliciously complex area that the show could explore, as it highlights the positives behind the characters without them knowing who is who. It gives a whole new meaning to anonymity and the dangers that go with it without ever being exploitative or insensitive. The show

Sword Art Online Part 3 DVD Review

Director: Tomohiko Ito,

Running Time: 175 minutes

Sword Art Online proved itself to be a spectacularly unpredictable series filled with many great themes and interesting developments. However, it also seemed to finish a main story arc far too early. That’s never a complaint I usually have with anime, but halfway through the series and the players were freed from their virtual prison. So what does the show do with another two collections on the way? Unfortunately, it seems to struggle with finding a new plot as gripping as its predecessor.

After being released from the game, Kirito adapts to a normal life once again, as he is reunited with his sister. However, Asuna, his in-game love from the previous game, remains in a coma. It’s then revealed that Asuna may be

It’s been 2 years since players were trapped inside the Mmorpg, Sword Art Online, and the inhabitants have started to become accustomed to their new lives. A certain level of apathy and comfortableness has swept through the world, causing people to set up lives and take pride in their achievements. Sword Art Online does a terrific job at representing a fantasy world that is exactly that, but one we’d probably all like to be a part of. Average people become strong and fearless warriors, but at the same time the show highlights how the little things have vanished. Cooking now consists of a few quick clicks, removing much of its enjoyment.

The second part of the season once again keeps things very insular as players

Set in 2022, Sword Art Online begins with the worldwide launch of a new Mmorpg. It’s a game where players log in using a special head-set and they are drawn in to a virtual reality world. Once inside the game it is revealed that they cannot leave until all 100 levels are completed. If they die in the game, they die in real life. A delicious premise which is exploited to its fullest in one of the best anime released this year.

The secret to Sword Art Online’s success is the wonderful direction and pacing that the show takes. The entire show is set in this brand new fantasy world and we have no idea what is going on in the outside world. We’re trapped along with the players,

Blue Exorcist: Definitive Edition Part 2 Blu-ray Review

Director: Tensai Okamura,

Starring: Nobuhiko Okamoto, Bryce Papenbrook, Jun Fukuyama, Johnny Yong Bosch, Kana Hanazawa, Christine Marie Cabanos, Kazuya Nakai, Kyle Hebert,

Running Time: 310 minutes

Certificate: 12

Blue Exorcist took a look at the son of Satan growing up in a school and preparing to take on the old man. It really did feel a lot like Harry Potter at times, but with more badassery. This second set of episodes capitalises on the delicious premise and finally takes us to the deeper and darker areas that dealings with demons should address. It didn’t always look as though it was going to be quite so positive though, as the show decides to introduce some male fantasy eye candy early on. Rin acquires himself a trainer, who happens to be a busty bikini clad character. A boobs become the object of many discussions, which is a shame because she is also very funny,

Blue Exorcist: Definitive Edition Part 1 Blu-ray Review

Running Time: 310 minutes

Certificate: 12

We’ve seen wizards, vampires, and super-powered mutants attend their own variations on educational establishments over the years, so why not demons? Blue Exorcist takes our protagonist, Rin Okamura, and reveals to him that he isn’t just a problem child, but is literally the son of Satan. Happy Father’s Day! Although he is a potential danger, having been raised by a priest, Rin enters an academy to train as an exorcist and use his demonic powers for good. It’s the classic tale of a person being judged by the sins of the father, but in all fairness, his father is Satan; those are some pretty mighty sins. Rin also has a twin brother, who is one of the teachers at the
