her review of the Nyanbo! Blu-ray!
Hai, animated by Shirogumi, the mini-series Nyanbo! is the spin-off of the Yotsuba manga by Kiyohiko Azuma, who also created Azumanga Daioh, nya! Combining CG characters with the live-action locations, Nyanbo’s titular characters are tiny felinoid versions of Danbo, the cardboard robot of Yotsuba, nya.
The main characters are tiger- striped Tora, his widdle sister Kotota, Shiro the White Nyanbo, Kuro the Black Nyanbo, and Mike the calico Nyanbo, nya! Others include the two idol nyanbos, three street gang naynbyos, and the mecha nyanbos, nya! Yotsuba herself appurrs briefly during the end credits, nya!
Unnoticed by humans, the Nyanbos search the charming town for the parts of their UFO, and have the lovely slice-of-life adventures, including encounters with real cats, nya! It is such the wonderfully beautiful, fun, amewsing tale with supurrb animation, cinematography, voices, sound and mewsic, nya!
Written and directed by Akira Iwamoto, the anime is compurrised of the 26 short tales which total appurruximately 130 minutes on the Region 1 Blue-ray from Discotek Media, which distributes many classic anime, nya! The single disk is packaged in the plastic case in the outer cardboard sleeve, nya.
Purrsented in the 1.77:1, 16×9 screen aspect ratio of the 1080p resolution, the unrated anime’s audio is Japanese LPCM 2.0 with the optional English subtitles, nya. In the bold sans serif font with the Black outline, the subs are Yellow for dialogue, White for titles, and Light Blue for song lyrics, nya.
There are no special features, but the reverse side of the Blue-ray’s insert is the purretty wraparound scene of the Nyanbo in the lush landscape, nya! Hmm, Nyow I am wondering if there are some Nynabo posters, nya!I am done, so nyow I will turn The Mew over to Mie-sensei, who wants to tell us about
If My Favorite Pop Idol Made It to the Budokan, I Would Die, nya!
Arigato! So like, Auri Hirao’s manga “If My Favorite Pop Idol Made It to the Budokan, I Would Die” is about the genki otaku girl named Eripiyo who obsesses over her favorite idol star Maina, who is one of the seven members of the band ChamJam! Unfortunately, Eripiyo often over-exerts herself and works multiple jobs to support her hobby of attending the concerts and buying the merchandise, much to the detriment of her health!
Abetted by her fellow fans Kumasa and Motoi, who support other members of the band. Meanwhile, we glimpse the bit of the backstage and private lives of the band members Maina, Reo, Maki, Sorane, Aya, Yuka and Yumeri who are under scrutiny as they struggle to achieve greater popularity and maintain the relationships. Comedic with bittersweet moments, the tale is the fascinating look at the idol fandom subculture, fur shur!
The manga (which I have not yeat read) premiered in 2015, and the anime TV series adaptation premiered in 2020. I could not put those discs down, as I was quite enthralled by the tale, which I eagerly binge-watched! With the sincere friendships and passions, the characters are rather likable in spite of certain quirks, as the tale unfolds at the perfect pace, with the totally awesome designs, animation, voice acting, sound and music!
There are totally cute kemonomimi cosplay moments in episodes 5, 6, 8 & 11! So like, recently the complete series was translated into English and released here on the R1 Blue-Ray by Funimation! Presented in the 16×9 screen aspect ratio of the 1080p resolution with the DolbyTruHD audio choices of english 5.1 and Japanese 2.1 with the optional English subtitles, the 17 episodes are rated TV14 and total 300 minutes on the 2 discs.
The 3 minutes of special features are textless versions of the opening & closing songs. The instruction sheet is included for acquiring the digital copy of the anime. The plastic case within the outer cardboard sleeve; and the case’s insert’s reverse side is the cute wraparound scene of Eripiyo & friends in the queue to meet Maina & the other idols! I am totally pleased with the delightful anime, fur shur! Now here is Jamie to tell us about
A Quiet Place: Part Two!
Jamie (in his mewsual webmeowsterly attire):
The creatures in John Krasinski’s universe may not be able to see, but they can hear the slightest sound, thus the inhabitants must remain silent to stay alive. The eldest daughter, played by Millicent Simmonds, is deaf and communication takes place mostly through sign language.
Such a device could have been played only for cheap thrills, but thanks to believable, sympathetic characters and Krasinski’s tight direction, the 2018 film was a surprise hit. Krasinski’s sequel to his 2018 summer blockbuster begins at the beginning – Day One.
The film takes the audience back to the day the monsters first arrived, a peaceful, picturesque (presumably) Saturday morning. Old and new characters are briefly introduced before all hell breaks loose. Once the intro is over, AQP2 picks up exactly when the last film began, ready to spin a familiar tale of survival.
A Quiet Place: Part Two departs somewhat from the novelty of silence, providing a far more familiar plot than its predecessor. Emily Blunt plays the badass action mom while Cillian Murphy is the hopeless survivalist who ultimately … (that would be telling).
Note: Nothing new is learned about the monsters, but like a good zombie movie, they hardly matter. The characters still move the film, though this sequel focuses more on the daughter and son (Noah Jupe) than the first film. However, it’s the pacing and editing that sells this film.
Krasinski weaves several threads at once, effortlessly setting up the tension until the action begins. A Quiet Place: Part Two may not be as good as the first film, but it’s hardly a typical sequel. After a year away from theaters, it’s nice to have a good ol’ fashioned monster movie to come back to. That is all for our movie reviews, and now here is Tara-chan to begin our
