Set a Course for Sentimentality

The upcoming two-part Gargantia OVA will be set after the TV series and follows Ledo as he once again struggles to adapt to a new life--this time one without his trusted partner, Chamber. But there's no time for gloom and doom! Reema, a cute blonde from Kugel's fleet, has joined the Gargantia to train to be a messenger and I get the feeling that these two lonely hearts will hit it off. After all, what's a mecha show without a three-way relationship?

Try Not to Get Too Attached

Recap movies tend to be just that--recycled footage from the TV series projected on the big screen. But the Attack on Titan double feature promises new scenes, such as spending more time with the 104th Training Corps. A nasty trick for the plot to get its emotional hooks into us before ripping our hearts out! See how cruel this beautiful world can be in widescreen when the first film hits theaters on November 22nd.

Blast From the Past

Zegapain key visual

Old anime don't die, they just fade away... until they receive a Blu-ray remaster or, at the very least, a new illustration on their long-forgotten official homepage. The mecha title Zegapain aired back in 2006 but still has enough fans to warrant re-runs and the occasional website update. What overlooked mid-2000s anime do you think should be dusted off? My vote goes to Speed Grapher, but then again there's no accounting for taste.
