Highschool of the Dead

oahsod

It’s the start of the Summer Anime season over in Japan and folks  it has been awhile since I shown some anime love on the website that I figured it’s about time. There was two shows that started airing this week and while one anime shows homage to Sam Raimi, the other shows homage to George Romero. Click after the jump to read more about each show and how to watch both shows legally on the internet as the anime industry needs all the support it can get. (more…)

hsotdThis week, two anime trailers were released that are worth checking out. The first trailer is a peak at the upcoming new zombie anime, Highschool of the Dead. The manga has been on hiatus but soon to be back on track and seeing this trailer got me more excited for the franchise. The story follows a group of Highschool kids (and a school nurse who is stacked) going around looking for their relatives and trying to survive chaos around them. It’s got gore, sword and gun action, and best of all, boobs.

The other trailer is something that Funimation just recently released and that is the first full trailer for the upcoming Dragon Ball Z Kai DVD/Blu-Ray release. This is the first chance to check out the newest version of the dub and also, Gohan’s new voice actress. Gotta say, I like what I hear and knowing that this will also air on NickToons, it’ll bring a whole new audience to the Dragon Ball franchise. In case you didn’t know, Dragon Ball Z Kai is a “refreshed” version of DBZ with remastered footage and all new audio, both music and voice. Best of all, it has no filler, thats right, no Princess Snake, fake Namek, etc. Check after the jump for both trailers. (more…)

Zombies, action, and boobs, Highschool of the Dead has all that and more. Not only will the manga make its comeback from a year and half plus hiatus, but it seems the series will get an anime adaptation as well and I could not be any happier as this was one of my favorite series from the last couple years. The story starts off where one day, there was a sudden zombie outbreak and students and a school nurse try their best to survive to find other family members if they are alive that is. It has certain scenes that pays tribute to many zombies, which one scene has a “Saimon” making an appearance. When the anime adaptation will air is not known at the moment, but it could start as early as March or April when Japan starts the Spring line up of shows. All i know is, there will be a lot of bouncing happening, which included zombies heads bouncing on the ground and as well as boobs.
