Night Shift Nurses News

Night Shift Nurses is a franchise comprised of 8 movies, 1 anime series
| |

Welcome to the first week of February! We have a good amount of selection as well as adult releases with a nurse theme.

Familiar Series I would Recommend

  • Golden Time - Haven't seen a lot of romance series. If you are good with love triangle based series set in college, try this out. For me, I always rooted for the gal who doesn't get the main character in the end. I'm not good with the shows. There are lots of drama in Golden Time with a supernatural theme which was surprising to me.
  • Gurren Lagann - For the mech and ecchi lovers, this is a classic series that has a lot of praise. You are in for an emotional, coming of age story on Simon as his gang fight against Lordgenome's brutal regime.

Series I would try

  • Genshiken - I would try anything. I know I'm not much of a slice of fan, but there are slice of life shows I enjoyed. I haven't seen a lot of otaku and college themed anime series. We have a ton of high school/middle school settings for anime. It will be a nice change of pace.

I would love to hear your recommendations on these series. All comments are welcome. Thank you.

Disclaimer: I'm just promoting the official release and the publishers. I'm not selling you anything. This is to combat piracy and get fans to support the official release. All summaries are from ANN.

Adjusting to college life is hard enough for most students, but ever since Banri Tada lost all his memories he's literally being haunted by the spirit of the person he was before the accident. And now that the Banri-that-is has fallen in love with Koko instead of Linda, the girl his old self was in love with, the ghost of the Banri-that-was is stepping up its efforts to sabotage his new relationship with every power at its disposal. Since past-Banri can sometimes take over present-Banri's body, the entire life new-Banri has built is now in imminent danger of being blown away like a house of cards in a whirlwind. That doesn't even take into account Linda and Koko's feelings, let alone those of Banri's friend, Mitsuo, who Koko was formerly in love with, but who now has a thing for Linda - at least, when he isn't crushing on Chinami. And if that sounds confusing, it's nothing compared to how Banri feels as his old memories begin to resurface and the ultimate battle of Man Vs. Himself escalates!
