TWO IN A ROW! We're releasing this week's releases as well as a few that we missed for last week. Now, let the party begin!
My pick happens to be Vampire Princess Miyu. It happens to be one of the entertaining anime that helped me out of my depression way back then because of its story. This old school gem is about a human that became a vampire due to a curse and must protect the earth from demon-gods from another dimension with an demon-possessed medium in the midst of them all. I also want to try out Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 when I get the chance back at my college campus.
"Stranded in the space between human and demon, Miyu was born a vampire and charged with the responsibility of returning evil demons called Shinma to the dark. Being eternally 15, she yearns to return to the dark herself but not until she has banished the Shinma from Earth. And since her awakening, she remains cut off by the facts of who and what she is."
Everything in the manga department is unfamiliar to me except for Fullmetal Alchemist. I pick 07 Ghost because of its premise sounds interesting. I haven't read much manga series with a religious element.
"Set in a gothic fantasy world, this is the story of Teito Klein, an orphaned slave who became the top military academy student. However, an unexpected turn of events left him pursued by the forces of the Barsburg Empire. Now an escaping convict, Teito's sheltered by the church and its law of sanctuary. Here, he discovered many mysteries surrounding himself, the church, and the Empire itself. The fact that he might be connected to a dethroned king and the mystical stone of god, "The Eye of Mikhael", made him the target of the empire more than ever. Fortunately the church is under the mythical 7 Ghost protection. But who are the Ghosts really. Will Teito be free from the military's clutch, and what of his said mission to uncover the history. And who is the military's Chief-of-Staff Ayanami exactly. Teito's future seems to have spiraled into an unexpectedly perilous path."
Now that we opened our thoughts to you, what will you pick?
