Vatican Miracle Examiner Complete Collection

Miracles don’t happen every day. But when something impossible happens that seems to be the work of supernatural forces or higher powers, it’s the duty of the Assembly of Saints and their agents to investigate. Their job is to determine whether each incident is explainable via previously undisclosed information, a part of some plot to take advantage of the people’s faith, or a genuine miraculous event. Priests Josef Kou Hiraga and Roberto Nicholas specialize in unveiling the truth and unearthing secrets that others might wish to keep buried, but when they’re sent to Mexico to investigate reports of a virgin birth, they end up in danger of being buried themselves. Murder, demonic summoning and deals with the devil are just the beginning of a new war against the ultimate darkness by the Vatican Miracle Examiner!

RESPECT YOUR ANIME ELDERS!

9/14/2018 9:24:33 PM

Anime elders don’t get enough respect, which is a shame. It is so common for stories within the medium to focus on the exploits of teenagers that people are often considered old if they’re over the age of 30.

The main teenage cast is the ones who ultimately save the world or fall in love, but think about it for a moment: don’t they usually get the support of someone from an older generation? Ever notice how the absence of a parental figure is a prevalent trope in anime? The probability of a teenager missing one or even both of their parents is abnormally high. Having an intact family structure is the exception, not the rule.

That’s where an elder usually steps in to fill the void in a mentor role (Whether or not they’ll die somewhere along the line to further the main character’s development is another story). So, let’s take a moment and give a shout out to a few people who deserve credit!

Mild spoilers are ahead.

TUESDAY NEW RELEASES: NEGIMA! & GUNPARADE MARCH (Maiden Japan)

September 18, 2018

Negima! Complete Collection

Putting a 10-year-old boy in charge of a class full of teenage girls would normally sound like a really bad idea, but that’s what Negi Springfield has to do when he’s assigned to teach English at the exclusive Mahora Academy. Making matters worse, the class in question is Class 2-A, where the students all have unusual skills and secrets and some aren’t even human! Fortunately, Negi isn’t a normal 10 year old. He’s also secretly a wizard, which is a good thing since Negi’s lesson plans are constantly being interrupted by ghosts, vampires, ninjas, time travelers and even cheerleaders! Can magic help when more than a few of his students start to have romantic feelings towards him? Prepare to be enchanted by the most charming wizard ever in NEGIMA!

Gunparade March Complete Collection

In 1945, the alien invasion ended World War II and united humanity against a common enemy. Now, more than 50 years later and after countless deaths, a new group of teenagers has been drafted to train as pilots of the advanced combat mecha known as Humanoid Walking Tanks (HWTs). For Atsushi Hayami and the rest of Unit 5121, the odds of living to see their twenties now depends on the hardened battle steel of their armor, the courage and strength of their comrades in arms and the tactics of superior officers who see them as game pieces to be played against the Phantom Beasts. Friendships and love blossom against a battle-torn landscape, and every day is another desperate struggle to survive a seemingly endless war in GUNPARADE MARCH!
