Releases of the Week: Aura Battler Dunbine's mecha bugs are back


Fantasy worlds and giant robots go well together

We hit the final week of August and an older shows returns from the Anime Graveyard. One of these revivals happens to be Aura Battler Dunbine, which features insect-themed giant robots. Even though I never got around to checking out ADV's release of it, I dug the way the machines fought in the Super Robot Wars games. Heck, the cast made an appearance in Super Robot Wars X.

Other than that, Cat Girl Nuku Nuku gets the resurrection treatment. The first thing that came to my head was my memories of seeing it at an anime club during my high school days. While I saw one episode, I found it silly that the leading girl is a robot with the brain of a cat.

Another great thing about this occasion is that we get not one but two Go Nagai titles as the Devilman OVA and the original Cutie Honey manga hit North America. Since the latter brought us the first magical girl transformation, people can look forward to owning a piece of anime and manga history.

In the end, the pile of new goodies came out well and I look forward to seeing what September will have in store for us.
