In movies the comedy/horror/romance Warm Bodies tells a story of zombie love in a way I have never seen presented before. This actually is a good date movie, not something I usually would associate with zombies. Also out, the animated Escape from Planet Earth shows why humans are the scariest creatures in the galaxy. For the action addicts out there I should probably also mention A Good Day to Die Hard hits the shelves this week.
In TV we have Falling Skies: The Complete Second Season, continuing the alien invasion vs. human resistance story.
In Anime, Appleseed XIII – The Complete Series is a 13 episode TV series that follows up the movie with a deeper look into that clone and cyborg driven post war society. From Shirow Masamune, the man who gave us Ghost In The Shell, who shares a tendency with Philip K. Dick to have a single question at the heart of his stories: How do you define what it mean to be human, and who or what qualifies? Dusk maiden of Amnesia: Complete Collection is the story of a woman who was murdered 60 years ago, but now she can’t remember anything about it, or even who she was. But with the help of a boy who can see and hear her, they set up a paranormal investigation club with the goal of find out all about her and the event, even though a lot of the club members don’t know that is what they are doing.
Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee Reverse is bringing out season two collection 2, with the action heating up, the Letter Bee’s under attack by multiple threats, and destruction and mayhem being used by Reverse to undermine society and perhaps wipe it out. In The Everyday Tales of a Cat God: Complete Series is about a lazy goddess who gets kicked out of heaven and doesn’t seem to improve much on Earth.
Both Birdy the Mighty: Decode and Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom are having the entire series released in a S.A.V.E. edition this week, so if you shop around you should be able to pick them up for around $20 each. Birdy was always more dangerous to the innocent bystanders than the bad guys were, but the original collateral damage queens also have a lower priced release this week: Dirty Pair: Part One is being put out as a Litebox edition, which means less shelf space used up to boot.
