Review: Martian Successor Nadesico Blu-ray Set

Even as an avid anime fan, there’s always going to be a hidden gem that I missed, especially if it came out during the 90’s. Excluding the popular ones like Card Captor Sakura, Dragon Ball, Yu Yu Hakusho, among others, it’...


Review: Sound Of The Sky Blu-Ray Set

I remember when I learned about So Ra No Wo To, or Sound of the Sky, and initially watched it for the moe, and because it looked like another K-On, except in the military, so I started it with the mentality that it was just going to be anot...

Junjou Romantica getting a DVD Litebox re-release

Shungiku Nakamura's Junjou Romantica remains a relevant title for overseas fans these days, it seems, because Nozomi Entertainment announced they'll be re-releasing the entire first season this September in one 3-disc package. It'll feature...

Review: Princess Nine

At the beginning, I loved Princess Nine. It may be a cliche to say "I laughed, I cried!", but the fact is, I really did laugh and cry. The show seemed to be capable of doing something nigh-impossible: present a story unabashedly about girl ...

Space Adventure Cobra photo

Review: Space Adventure Cobra Part One

'80s anime had a fondness for cribbing from classic sci-fi. You can see the influences of authors like Issac Asimov and Philip K. Dick and movies like Terminator and Alien in multiple shows from the era. Hell, the influence of Blade Ru...

Princess Nine to return to DVD in April 2014

Princess Nine is one of those rare anime series where I've never, ever heard a bad word about it. I haven't seen it, but I remember people waxing poetic around 2001 (back when the now-defunct ADV Films originally released the series in the ...

Space Adventure Cobra gets release date

AX 2013: Right Stuf grabs Princess Nine and more

Oh good, it seems that a Princess Knight riot didn't occur during Right Stuff's Friday panel. Seeing how all of Right Stuf's divisions have announced something, we can assume that no one got injured during the presentation at Anime Expo 201...

Nozomi panel at AX 2013  photo

YES! Nozomi is having an acquisition panel at Anime Expo

I will admit that I'm am over reacting on my view towards Nozomi's latest announcement, but I'm actually more curious about the scene that's going to appear at the panel. On the good side of things, they're going to talk about some new rele...

Aria Season 1 litebox set photo

Hop on the gondolas of Mars with Aria's new litebox set

Ah Aria -- not to be confused with Aria: The Scarlet Ammo. Another anime series that I've heard good things about, but haven't gotten the chance to watch. The only thing that I know about the series is that it covers the everyday life ...

Minor rejoice? Nozomi's Princess Knight sets get revised

Oh no: Nozomi's Princess Knight set won't have dual audio

Before you break into a fit of rage, Nozomi had no choice in the matter of not including the original Japanese track for the Princess Knight anime that's based off of a manga by Osamu Tetsuka. Part of that reason has to do with the fact tha...


Irresponsible Rose Lions joins Nozomi's upcoming releases

Yikes, I didn't think that Nozomi was going to do this to us. Don't they know the dangers that they are inflicting upon society? Do they realize that Rose Lions are the most irresponsible creatures in the entire universe? Oh wait, Nozomi is...

Japanator Recommends: Boogiepop Phantom

I didn't start off as a fan of horror. When I was a kid, I was terrified of the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street franchises. I hated monsters of just about any kind and stuck to safe and happy things. While my stance on the genre...


AX '12: Nozomi licenses Aoi Hana, Ristorante Paradisio

While Sentai Filmworks drowned us in licensed titles, Nozomi and the folks at Right Stuf have announced some really high quality licenses: Hyakko, Aoi Hana, and Ristorante Paradisio. I, a full-grown man with a growing beard, squealed w...


Nozomi's resurrected Nadesico gets a release date

Japanator Doesn't Recommend: Gasaraki

I have come across a great deal of animes that have left a bad taste in my mouth during my early adventures into the medium. Never in my life have I come across a series that felt like a torturous ordeal. This my friend, is the anime known ...


Boogiepop Phantom gets a complete DVD set

Boogiepop Phantom was one of those series that I always meant to watch, but never got around to for various reasons. Now, I have another chance, as the 12-episode anime is getting rereleased in a 4-disc DVD set by Right Stuf's Nozomi Entert...

Japanator Kind of Recommends: Gravitation

I remember writing up a yaoi article back when we did Ero Week here on Japanator. If you read it, you may remember I shared that my very first BL was Gravitation. Back when I was exposed to it, the manga was still on-going and soon after I ...

Right Stuf bringing us El Hazard at the end of September

Rarely do you see older anime brought to the forefront anymore. The folks over at Right Stuf seem to be one of the few bringing us actively older titles that have faded from the public consciousness by now. Their latest announcement? That t...
