Comments Anime series about a college student who is trying to “help” her upperclassman from her old school who appears to be socially isolated, by livening up his social life. Has some fanservice related to the title character’s (ahem) shirt size. The limited edition release comes with an artbook and some art cards.

Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “RahXephon is my pick of the week for this week – it’s a show that is absolutely gorgeous with an amazing soundtrack – and got a Blu-Ray release in Japan several years ago, so this was a long time coming.” Blaine says, “the third season of Star Trek: Discovery was stronger than earlier seasons on the whole, but it would have been even better as a fourth season where the third season alternated between serialized stories with Burnham and episode stories with the rest of the ship that established all of the character traits that were used in the season finale.”

  1. JD DeLuzio says:

    It doesn’t look like the strongest week, though Season Three was the best Discovery so far. Eight Legged Freaks is uneven, but it’s worth a watch if you’re a fan of the old monster movies it’s homaging.

  2. Brian says:

    While it shouldn’t be surprising, those two GI Joe movies were incredibly bad. Not even “so bad they’re good” bad. Just…awful. Joyless and insulting.
