Here are Daisuki's Spring 2014 simulcasts. However, these shows will be streamed one month after their original Japanese broadcast:

  • Mushishi: The Next Chapter - Streamed on May 4
  • Nanana's Buried Treasure - Streamed on May 10
Mushishi: The Next Chapter

They existed long before anyone can remember. They are simple and strange in nature, not resembling any other plant or animal in this world. In ancient times, people revered these bizarre creatures and called them “Mushi.”

People once again began to believe in the existence of these "Mushi" when they began affecting their lives in inexplicable ways.

The one who connects the world of “Mushi” to the world of humans—they were called the "Mushi-Shi." All life exists not to hinder others in this world.

They are simply there to live as they were meant to.

Nanana's Buried Treasure
Nanana's Buried Treasure is based on Kazuma Ōtorino's original novel. The story centers around the treasure of Nanana, a ghost who was once a beautiful but NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) girl. A boy named Jūgo was disowned by his father and forced to transfer to a high school on the "Special Student Zone," an artificial island. With only 40,000 yen (about US$400) a month to live on, Jūgo chooses a low-rent apartment that happens to be haunted by Nanana. Jūgo and members of the school's adventure club join a "treasure hunt royale" on the island for the Nanana Collection, a treasure that possesses a mysterious power.

It's a small selection for this week. The only thing I omitted was Puella Magi Madoka the Movie Part 3: Rebellion since Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other stores don't have it in stock due to being an import. Only Right Stuf has it.

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.

Familiar Zero Season 1
Familiar Zero Season 1
  • Distributor: Sentai Filmworks
  • Suggested retail price: $59.98 (BD), $49.98
Louise Francoise Le Blanc de La Valliere's name is so long and her spell-casting skills are so poor that everyone at the Tristain Academy of Magic just calls her "Louise the Zero". Louise's humiliation only increases during an important second-year test, where the other students summon up dragons and other mythological creatures as their familiars, and she inexplicably summons Hiraga Saito, a totally normal teenager from Tokyo.

Now she's stuck with him and Saito's stuck with the lousy life of being a familiar. Except, maybe there's more going on than meets the eye, because Saito's not prepared to accept the social inequities that Louise and other aristocrats consider the status quo, and he may not be quite as normal as everyone thinks. And the reason Louise is so bad at magic might just be that she hasn't figured out what she's good at yet. In fact, they might even have the makings of a great team... if they can learn to stand each other first, that is!

Contains episodes 1-13.

Aniplex of America have announced its shows for simulcast this spring season. No dates or territories are given.

1. The Irregular at a Magical High School

Magic--A century has passed since this concept has been recognized as a formal technology instead of the product of the occult or folklore.

The season is spring and it is time for a brand new school year. At the National Magic University First Affiliate High School, A.K.A Magic High School, students are divided into two distinct groups according to their academic performances. The “Bloom,” who demonstrate the highest grades and are enrolled in the “First Course,” and the “Weed,” who have poor academic records and are enrolled in the “Second Course.”

This spring, a very peculiar brother and sister enroll as new students. The brother is an underachiever with some deficiencies and enrolls as a “Weed,” while his younger sister is an honor student, who enrolls as a “Bloom.”

The brother, with a somewhat philosophical expression, and the younger sister who holds feelings a little stronger than sibling love for him…

Ever since these two have entered through the gates of this prestigious school, the calm campus was beginning to change...

2. Mushishi: The Next Chapter

They existed long before anyone can remember. They are simple and strange in nature, not resembling any other plant or animal in this world. In ancient times, people revered these bizarre creatures and called them “Mushi.”

People once again began to believe in the existence of these "Mushi" when they began affecting their lives in inexplicable ways.

The one who connects the world of “Mushi” to the world of humans—they were called the "Mushi-Shi." All life exists not to hinder others in this world.

They are simply there to live as they were meant to.

3. Mekaku City Actors

The incidents which occurred on August 14th and 15th bring a group of young boys and girls together…

They are members of a group they call themselves the “Mekakushi Dan” (Blindfold Organization) and each member possesses a strange power involving their eyes. Will the members of this peculiar organization be able to solve the mysteries behind these incidents and see the truth?

4. Nanana's Buried Treasure

“I'm going to build a place where young people can challenge to reach any of their dreams!”

The 7 genius students, known as the GREAT 7, launched a project to construct an artificial island called Nanae Island to realize their leader, Nanana Ryugajo's peculiar idea. 12 years later, with a total population of 100,000 people with as much as 80% of those inhabitants being students, Nanae Island has successfully become prosperous as a special student zone. One of the island's newest residents was Jugo Yama--a high school student who had just transferred to the island after being disowned by his father.

One day, Jugo finds in his own apartment the earth-bound spirit of the late Nanana Ryugajo, who was murdered by someone 10 years ago! Jugo's plan of living alone was suddenly thwarted by this strange roommate.

Hello everyone, it's a Friday. For me, it's another day of work after working at the family business this whole spring break. This week, I was working on the Spring Anime 2014 Trailers Guide and the Anime Vice's Top 20 Manga Series of 2013. It's time to take a little detour and revive this embarrassing project, take some stress off.

You guys and gals can call me weird or perverted. I don't mind. We all have fetishes deep inside.

Past Articles

Why are we covering sibling love, incest or non incest (for non blood related characters)? This winter season of 2014 was pretty awkward. We had two dirty shows that focuses on the forbidden love to little sisters while we had one show dedicated to little brothers. The summaries are from Crunchyroll.

Fetish Friday: Little Sisters

1. Oreimo
Technically, this show wasn't aired during the winter season, but it was the first show I saw that pulled me into this world. Who got me into the show? It's my good friends, Daniel Newton and Kurt. I can't omit this show because of its infamous ending that drove many fans who love the show to hell.
2. Pupa
Plot: Growing up with an abusive father, Utsutsu is highly protective of his younger sister Yume. One day, Yume sees a red butterfly and contracts the strange Pupa virus. She begins to sprout grotesque wings and to indiscriminately attack both animals and humans. Hoping to find a way to stop the advance of the virus, Utsutsu seeks out Maria, a researcher who knows the secret of Pupa. He decides to sacrifice his own body as live bait for the sake of saving Yume.
3. Recently, My Sister is Unusual
Plot: Yuya and Mitsuki have recently become brother and sister because of their parents remarrying. Mitsuki is having a hard time opening up to her new family, but their parents leave for a foreign country right after getting married before that can get any better. As Mitsuki is troubled by her new life living alone with Yuya, a amnesiac ghost girl, Hiyori, appears before her, and she is forced to help her pass on to the next world...

Fetish Fridays: Little Brothers

1. Oneechan ga Kita
Plot: Tomoya’s father remarries to another woman, giving him a stepsister, Ichika. However Ichika is 17-years old and has completely fallen in love with her stepbrother who is only 13!! Families will collide in the most unusual fashion this season, in the new anime short: ONEE-CHAN GA KITA!

Let's go over the differences between how little sisters love are portrayed in Pupa and Recently My Sister Unusual and how are little brothers love portrayed.

Little Sisters

In Pupa and Recently, My Sister is Unusual, it gave off a more sexual vibe. Both shows had some controversial fan service with their scenes. Pupa is all about the little sister eating her brother's flesh. The brother gives his consent. In that one episode, he was on the bed while she was on top. She biting him and saying Onii-chan for the entire episode. The brother was in great pain as he gritted his teeth and bite down the pain. Yeah, it was a terrible series, but damn, I couldn't hold back laughing.

For My Sister is Unusual, it was about the step brother trying to rebuild his family to get back the connection. Yuya's mother died, so his father remarried. He wanted to be a good brother, but Mitsuki who is forced to wear a chastity belt due to Hiyori, a perverted ghost obsessed over Yuya. This drives the wedge between Yuya and Mitsuki. Yuya wants to get closer to Mitsuki while Mitsuki tries to get away from him. It's a like a tug of war.

(I lost my train of thought. Trying to remember the crazy theories that were formed back then. I forgot what I said to my pals in this community)

With these two shows, the little sister fetish comes from the virtues of her being innocent and pure. She needs protection and guidance. With Oreimo, Kyousuke helps Kirino find friends that love her despite her love for eroge. He is willing to sacrifice his image and make himself as a scapegoat in the first season when their father found out Kirino's unhealthy collection. In Pupa, Utsutsu is willing to let his sister treat him as a food source. I remember in No-Rin that one character said it was a form of paternal love. Have to check No-rin again.

Also, others argue it comes from the whole forbidden love thing.

Little Brothers

I only have one example. I can't really based a pattern on this. From my impressions, the show was light hearted comedy. You had three sisters with brothers. All with their own unique relationships. Ichika's love with her step brother was endearing and not so creepy. For the light blue hair siblings, the younger brother hates his older sister. They have a rough relationship. Ichika reminds me of Hiyori from My Sister is Unusual. Both women are quick to jealously when their love interest interacts with another girl.

Let's end this blog. I'm distracting myself from my teammates' project for the spring guide.

In the end, the sibling love is more seen in anime and not much in the states. In the states, (from a non native American citizen) cousin love is more common than sibling love. I could be wrong since I don't watch a lot of TV or movies. It depends on the culture. For my home country, cousin love is seen as okay while in the states, it's looked down.

Hope you enjoy this blog. I know it's crazy. Had to get it out of there.
