Trinity Seven - Complete Season Collection Blu-ray/dvd Combo Pack

was £39.99
**Special Edition Combo Pack Including 2 x Blu-ray, 2 x DVD and a limited edition o-card cover**

Things have been looking sunny for Arata Kasuga lately. Unfortunately it's been the wrong sun in the sky, and the mysterious Breakdown Phenomenon that accompanied it destroyed his town and stole his beloved cousin Hiijiri, leaving Arata in a fantasy world of his own creation!

There's still a chance to save her, however, as the appearance of the Black Sun also revealed Arata's potential abilities as a mage, placing him in the powerful Demon Lord class.

But first, since Arata and his newfound magical talents are far too dangerous to leave to their own devices, he's immediately whisked off to the Royal Biblia Academy. That's where he'll meet seven beautiful female mages whose powers are intrinsically tied to the same sins that Arata has to master to put his world back together.
Of course, the tricky part is that they have their own plans for him as well! The lessons in sin are about to begin as Arata takes on the Trinity Seven!

Contains episodes 1-12.



The Curse of Minky Momo

Can a cartoon series really cause earthquakes?
The strange case of Minky Momo, is so curious that it’s inspired a Japanese urban myth and may have helped plant seeds for Madoka Magica.

Ninja Scroll

Andrew Osmond on one of anime’s holy trinity
Ninja Scroll is crammed with memorable images, set-pieces and characters. Like many of the best international anime hits, the contents of Ninja Scroll are foreign yet familiar. Instead of the future megacities of Akira, we’re deep in the Japanese countryside. We’re weaving through fog and fireflies, springing through treetops, sneaking down rivers, hanging halfway down stone cliffs.

One Piece Music: Ai Kawashima

Tom Smith on the singer that refuses to give up
Ai Kawashima’s life has all the unfortunate ingredients of a weepy, straight-to-TV melodrama. Yet, she hasn't let any of it hold her back from achieving her dream in music.

Kite: Live Action

Samuel L. Jackson brings Yasuomi Umetsu's anime to life
Kite the movie will be released on UK DVD and Blu-ray by Anchor Bay on 13th October.

Mechademia 8: Tezuka's Manga Life

Jasper Sharp reviews a book-length collection on the “God of Manga”
Tezuka’s Manga Life is a scholarly and much-needed attempt to sort out the wheat from the chaff of the Tezuka myth, with its 22 contributors spread over 300+ pages attempting to put the vast output of the prodigious manga artist into context.
Opposites may attract, but putting them together can result in chemical burns, electric shocks, and explosions.

Cosplay: Dragon Ball Z

Paul Jacques goes on the prowl at the London Super Comic Con
Cosplayer Kasey Wolfe goes for a beardy version of Gohan from Dragon Ball Z, caught by our roving photographer Paul Jacques at the London Super Comic Con. Dragon Ball Z is out now on UK DVD from Manga Entertainment.

Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple

The first rule of Kenichi is: big eyes and kick ass.
In the real world, mastering a martial art takes years of devotion. All require a harsh physical regimen that pushes the body to the limit. Of course, we’re dealing with the world of anime, so we have a sneaking suspicion that Kenichi Shirahama might be able to go from shy, quiet bookworm to martial arts prodigy in a matter of weeks. All it takes to send him on the path to becoming Chuck Norris’ worst nightmare is falling for the new girl in class after he sees her single-handedly demolishing a group of thugs.

Podcast: Scotch Tape

Necromancy, ten years of NEO, and the carrot of continuations on our 27th podcast
Jeremy Graves is joined by the fragrant Gemma Cox of NEO magazine, the pungent Andrew Partridge from Anime Ltd, and the newly doctored Jonathan Clements to discuss Scotland Loves Anime, the Boom Boom Satellite Distraction Device, and rogue robot tanks.

Naruto Cosplay: Double Hatake

Paul Jacques continues to round up the best cosplay...
Anna Mateus and Karol Slomczynski snuggle up as two Kakashi Hatakes from Naruto, because one wasn't trouble enough. Snapped by our roving cameraman Paul Jacques at the London Super Comic Con.
