Junjo Romantica, MS Igloo and Thunderbolt
Diversity-it’s a word you hear bandied about a lot these days.
To diversify means to mix things up, to offer a variety of things or

Everything from romance to hardcore science fiction-RightStuf! offers it all. This makes for a good reason to purchase
Blu-rays and DVD Anime from RightStuf!
This time around RightStuf! offers three new Anime.
Junjo Romanitca centers on six young men.
College student: Misaki, is about a straight-laced as they come-a very
studious and serious young man who pushes himself to succeed.
He has very little time for social activities-instead he concentrates on
Much to his shock his tutor (Usami) hits on him-what to do? Misaki has never faced such a dilemma. His world is about to be turned inside out.
Kamijou and Nowaki are polar opposites.
Kamijou is moody, gloom and doom and tends to be pessimistic.
On the other hand Kamijou appears to be happy, content and
spontaneous. But is he really? Do they have more in common than either one
Miyagi is carefree, impulsive and a joker.
Shinobu is attracted to him almost to the point of fanaticism. What will the ultimate outcome be between
the two? Only time will tell.
Junjo Romantica is definitely not for everyone and it touches on a subject
most feel uncomfortable with ( I know
I do). Still such Anime are common in
Japan and it must be taken for what it is.
Mobile Suit Gundam MS Igloo spotlights the futility of war as two warring
factions seek to outclass each other with advanced weaponry.
Both the Principality of Zeon and The Earth Federation launch new
prototype super-weapons in the hopes of ending the conflict between them and
bringing an end to the way which has already cost many lives and the loss of
Who will be the victor and what will be left for the winner to claim?
New, more powerful weapons also mean more loss of life and property.
Does anyone really win in a bloody war?
The war between Zeon and Earth has escalated and expanded into space.
So fierce and devastating is the war that whole regions of space have
become littered with debris and wreckage from spacecraft and planets created
electrified fields of energy called Thunderbolts.
One such region: Thunderbolt Sector is especially dangerous.
Zeon and Earth forces clash as the Moore Brotherhood of Earth attempts to
reclaim its homeland within the Thunderbolt Sector.
Cybernetically enhanced soldiers from both sides clash and they soon come
to realize both sides are destined to perish.
Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt December Sky is a new Blu-ray release as
are MS Igloo and Junjo Romanitca.

Titans The Judas Contract
One of the most famous and far-reaching series within a series in DC
Comics’ ‘The New Titans’ comic series, drawn by George Perez and written by
Marv Wolfman was 'The Judas Contract.’
In it the New Teen Titans were betrayed by one of their won employed
by Deathstroke The Destroyer.
DC Comic Book fans have clamored and begged for years for the intense
mini-series to be adapted to a TV series, movie or animated feature.
Rejoice! DC Comics and Warner Bros. have listened and they
proudly present ‘Teen Titans The Judas Contract’ animated feature film via
Warner Bros.’ ‘DC Universe Original Movie.’
Much has changed with The New Titans since the story was originally
presented in the early 1980s. The
team’s roster has changed, the Titans have grown up and the DC Universe is
much more convoluted and intertwined.
Taking some creative liberties, ‘The Judas Contract’ nonetheless
follows the basic basis of the original storyline.
Many of the changes are simply cosmetic, while other changes
introduce new elements to the story thus making it more relevant and coherent
within the DC Universe.
That being said the heart of the story is intact and it is every bit
as intense, surprising, shocking and earth-shattering as the original.
As with all DC Universe animated full-length movies ‘The Judas
Contract’ in beautifully illustrated and animated and gorgeous to watch.
With its superior script, first-rate animation, killer soundtrack and
state-of-the-art effects ‘The Judas Contract’ promises to be an instant
classic just like its comic book namesake.
Extras included in the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD Combo Pack include
several featurettes, two classic cartoons and a special Sneak Peek.
Also, a special Teen Titans three-inch figure is included with the
Limited Edition Gift Set.

It’s here! It’s finally
here! Disney’s Star Wars: Rogue One
Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD Combo Pack has arrived and it’s awesome!
‘Rogue One’ is my favorite Star Wars movie just after ‘The Empire
Unlike the previous twin trilogies, Rogue One does not feature iconic
characters (albeit there are brief cameos) and takes place just before the
events of ‘A New Hope.’
A ragtag group of misfits is sent to scout out the Death Star, find
its weakness and return that information back to the rebels. Sound familiar?
The film stars a ragtag bunch of rogues, among them a reprogrammed
Imperial Droid, a traitor, two Jedi wannabes, a tough-as-nails pilot and a
young girl whose father is the architect of the Death Star.
Together they unite to stop The Empire. It’s a rough and tumble, gritty and
realistic struggle where the thin line between the tactics of good and evil
Filled with spectacular digital and physical effects, intriguing new
characters, amazing ships and weapons, dastardly villains (both old and new)

combination that Star Wars fans will rave about.
Suit Gundam The 08th MS

In the ‘Mobile
Suit Gundam The 08th MS Team’ Blu-ray, containing episodes 1-12 of the
popular Anime series, the Federation is just about to learn a valuable lesson

dramatic role that will tear your heart out.
In Collateral Beauty, from Warner

incredible, tragic loss in his life.
His friends try to console him but he retreats and in his isolation

is woefully unprepared!
So incompetent is the Earth Military Forces that a private and independent
arms manufacturer: Nergal, decides to build its own space battleship in order
to launch a counter offensive against the warring aliens.
The only problem is there is a serious shortage of soldiers, especially
those trained to run a space battleship, so the company resorts to using a
most ‘unusual’ and ‘unorthodox’ crew of misfits.

of surviving when this ragtag, slightly kooky and off-kilter crew of geeks,
freaks, misfits and Anime fans are running the show?

The Girl From U.N.C.L.E.,
The Gallant Men,
The decades of the 1950 and 1960s hold a special place in
my heart. It was during these decades
that I grew from a young boy to a young man.
While a number of people and events shaped my life TV
provided a huge contribution to my maturing views on morality, honor and
While most early 1950’s TV shows tended to offer a
somewhat sugarcoated, morally coherent and simple view of life along the vein
of Leave It To Beaver and Father’s Knows Best, the late 1950s TV shows
started to stir the pot.
Mature Westerns, Crime, Family, Medical and other shows
sbegan to introduce societal problems and more ’real life’ situations.
Of course violence was relegated to innuendo, clever
camera tricks and never, ever showed blood, as it would have actually
appeared. Cuts and bruises, the occasional
slight bloodstain or dead body would appear, but nothing even remotely
Still the caliber of writing (for the most part) was
superior and the acting (while a little over the top) was first-rate.
One TV Western that premiered at the tail end of the
1950s was Sugarfoot starring Will Hutchins as Tom Brewster (Sugarfoot) as a
wandering frontier lawyer who sought after adventure and somehow always
managed to find himself in the thick of things.
Possessing a real talent for being at the wrong place at
the wrong time Sugarfoot managed to help the poor and defenseless, right
wrongs and avoid gunplay as much as possible-all with a sense of humor.
Sugarfoot alternated every two weeks with another Warner Bros. TV Western: Cheyenne.
The entire First Season, along with the pilot episode, is
included in a Warner Bros. Archive Collection. Take a moment to see if you can spot future
Western TV stars.
My friends and I were big fans of the G.I. Joe action
figures and all their accessories. We
lived and breathed war and imagined ourselves as stoic WWII veterans battling
the nasty Nazi and dirty Japs.
Barely 20 years after WWII various TV war series reminded
everyone of the horrors of war-albeit in cleaned up versions. There was plenty of gunplay and explosions
but the true horrors of war were only alluded to and not really shown in gory
The 1960s began to see a pivotal turn in American
TV. Censorship was relaxing and
grittiness and realism were slowly being injected into TV series.
While nothing like today’s plethora of violent, overly
sexual and morally questionable TV fare, the 1960s TV drama series began to
view life as it was, with doses of censorship.
I loved watching War TV series. Among my favorites were Combat, Twelve
O’clock High, The Rat Patrol and ABC’s The Gallant Men.
Set during WWII The Gallant Men offered a unique
perspective of the war. Narrated by a war correspondent, the TV shown the war
as seen through the eyes of combat, ground troops and the many dangers,
trials and decisions they experienced everyday.
Often depicting soldiers as weary, dirty, afraid,
perplexed and homesick the series spotlighted ordinary Joes who only wanted
to finish their mission and go home.
Centered on the war in Italy, The Gallant Men entire
series only lasted one season at 26 episodes, but its groundbreaking
story-telling technique would influence other TV series for decades to come.
Like Combat TV series I loved Spy series. My favorites included The Blue Light, Mission:
Impossible, I Spy, The Wild, Wild West and The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
When the The Man From U.N.C.L.E. became popular it was
only natural that a spin-off TV series would be created.
Lasting only one season The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. starred
Stephanie Powers as April Dancer, the super-slick, sophisticated and sexy spy
from U.N.C.L.E. Along with her male
partner Mark Slate (played by actor Rex Harrison’s son Noel Harrison)
traveled the globe thwarting dastardly deeds mostly initiated by U.N.C.L.E.’s
Played as tongue-in-cheek, the series failed to garner
the fan base of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. but as the years progressed it became
a cult classic.
All 29 episodes are included in Part One and Two of The
The TV series is pure camp with heavy doses of sixties
sensibilities including fashion, transport, hairstyles and the like.
When legendary comic book artist Jack Kirby became fed up
with both Marvel and DC Comics he opted to return to animation, where he
originally got his start at the Fleisher Studios.
At the time leather and fur clad barbarians with big
swords were popular at the movies and in literature.
Capitalizing on that trend Kirby helped create the
characters and concept behind the animated Saturday morning TV series: Thundarr
Warner Bros. presents The Complete Series on 4 discs as
part of its Hanna-Barbera Classic Collection.
Taking place almost a thousand years after the Earth and
the Moon are nearly destroyed by a passing planet, the story finds Thundarr
and his compatriots traveling the globe serving up justice via muscle, sword
Cutting edge at the time, Thundarr The Barbarian was a
step above most Saturday morning cartoon fodder and is considered a classic
by cartoon fans.
The Entire Series of 21 episodes is included on the DVD set that redefined
what TV animation could aspire to.
