Purchased: Tiger & Bunny Limited Edition DVD + Blu-ray Volume 1 (UK Edition)

“That’s not a hero!”

Studio: Sunrise

Genre: Action, Crime, Drama, Comedy, Superheroes, Science Fiction, Age: 12+

Released: February 2013  (UK version)

Tiger & Bunny has to be be one of the best series made in recent years. So much so, that I watched it multiple times in the Japanese subs, and was ecstatic when it was released in the UK. For once, I have no complaint that a “guy’s series” was being released, since I love superheroes. This series has so many lovable characters, and has original superheroes with their own unique costume design. The only thing that is evil is the cost of each of these volumes.

Since I purchased this when it came out in February last year, it was at full price. Since this is an ultra-lux “Limited Edition” (no, it isn’t, explanations at the end), so let’s see what the buyer gets for their money. Especially since there are four of these volumes to collect.

First of all, there is a cardboard sleeve with the outer designs of the volume on it. Inside is another cardboard sleeve which holds the disks.  Each side features a superhero from the series. Everything is nice and glossy, and this is one of the major factors for buying this set.

Currently Watching & Currently Reading: Upcoming Reviews

“Next couple of days will be packed”

I’ve just finished a couple of drama series, and instead of taking a break from melodrama, I will be diving into the world of shoujo.

Currently Watching Anime

I’m going to be finishing up anime with a grand reviewing schedule for Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (My Little Monster), K, Sword Art Online, Say “I Love You” and Digimon Frontiers.

Anime Winter 2013

chihayafuru-01-13

I didn’t spot any anime that I wanted to follow for this season except for Chihayafuru season 2. Naturally, it’s been a while since I watched the first season, and I don’t want to jump into the second without getting the reviews done for the first. I’m going to follow it in the natural order.

Basically that means, I will not be following Anime Winter 2013. There is other stuff to make up for it though!

Are they really meant to be?
