Anime Review Roundup
Samurai Flamenco Part 2 weren’t forthcoming. If you click on the review, you’ll see just why it’s not my favourite anime show; it’s a story that aims for the stars, but falls spectacularly flat, and while that might explain my need to complete the show, it in no way explains my compulsion to pay money for something that I know I won’t get any satisfaction from. Amateur psychoanalysis is welcome, and leave it in the comments.
This Week I Have Been Mostly Rewatching...
A college student named Keiichi dials a wrong number, and gets the goddess Belldandy instead, who makes a dazzling appearance out of a mirror. She offers him one wish to counteract the years of misfortune he has suffered, and he wishes that someone like her stay with him forever. Unexpectedly, the wish is granted, and Keiichi’s life with a goddess begins. It isn’t long before her sisters Urd and Skuld show up, and all manner of divine mayhem ensues. It’s as if anime did I Dream of Jeannie! Here’s Stuart McLean’s review of the first series where he says as much. MVM released it on six single volume DVDs back in 2007, and the following year released it as a collection. It’s well and truly deleted now, and second hand is your best bet of finding it in the UK. It is available from the US, but Media Blasters still hold the licence, and they burn shows to order on DVD-R rather than have the discs manufactured as they did in the old days.
All the Anime released Samurai Flamenco Part 2 on Blu-ray back in 2016.
