Welcome to Shibuya-cho
Let's start this week off with some DVD news for all you Naruto fans out there, (at least the ones who aren't broke yet from the triple release last week). You know that Naruto movie you may or may not have gotten the chance to see that one day in theaters? Well, we finally got it! I know I kept saying we wouldn't see it until some time in September, but we got it just a bit early. So in case you missed it, or just feel the need to own it now is the time to come get Naruto: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow.
Now in terms of books this week, there's nothing too notorious but that doesn't mean there's nothing good. For instance, if you haven't picked it up yet, I say you should check out Natsumi Mukai's series +Anima. Volume five comes out this week, but just in case you missed 1-4 I'll give you the rundown. Basically +Anima takes place in a world where one in a million people are born with the potential to become +animas, humans that can shift parts of their bodies to have animal attributes.
Such as the case of Cooro who is a regular hyper, happy kid who loves to eat but also is a crow +anima. Cooro can sprout black wings from his back and fly away. Also, there's Husky who is a fish +anima that can turn his legs into a fish tail and sprout gills, (so...basically, yes, he's a mermaid). The catch? First of all, almost everyone else in the world is afraid of them and regard them as freaks, but even darker than that, one can only discover they are a +anima if they go through some deep childhood trauma. Plenty of action, comic relief, and nifty +anima abilities make +Anima a blast. I promise. See ya next week!
