In Movies we get Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the second film in the recent reboot of the classic series. This set of films is probably the best example of the state of the art in computer generated characters I have seen. Also this week, the live action version of Kite, based on the groundbreaking anime classic.

In TV, The Strain: The Complete First Season is a show about viral vampires, as done by Guillermo Del Toro and a few other award winning writers. Also out, The Simpsons: The Complete Seventeenth Season continues the animated silliness for more years than I even dreamed were possible when the show first hit the airwaves.

In Anime, Diabolik Lovers: Complete Collection finds Yui sharing a home with 6 vampires, and keeping them at fangs length is becoming quite stressful. Note that this is the DVD only; the Blue Ray version will be out at the end of February. In the magical combat comedy we get Fairy Tail: Part 14, bringing episodes 154 through 164 to North America. Finally, Queen’s Blade: Beautiful Warriors is a 6 episode OVA series telling the tales of the most recent contestants as they make their way through the world after their competition.
