Synopsis:

The young Norse god Thor embarks on a quest with his brother Loki to find and recover a legendary sword.

As we gear up for a live-action return to Asgard courtesy of Marvel Studios' Chris Hemsworth-headlined Thor: The Dark World, Lionsgate has taken the opportunity to give us a look at the formative years of the God of Thunder with a timely budget re-release Thor: Tales of Asgard, the eighth and final animated feature from Lionsgate and Marvel Animation, which originally hit shelves back in 2011 to coincide with Thor's first big screen outing.

3 April 2013 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 Running Time: 288 minutes

Certificate: 12

Extras: Episode 21 Commentary, Naze Nani Shana II, Shakugan No Shana-Tan Revenge, Textless Opening/Closing Songs,

Shana explodes back onto the screen with an epic battle that concludes an arc from the last collection of episodes. The frantic and mesmerising battle, in terms of animation and emotional weight, means even naysayers should be enticed from the early moments. As it settles down we realise that not only has this half of the season upped the ante in terms of action, but also character development.

Shana Season 2 Part 1 DVD Review

3 March 2013 10:29 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Takashi Watanabe

Starring: Rie Kugimiya, Tabitha St. Germain, Satoshi Hino, Kristian Ayre, Ayako Kawasumi, Paul Dobson, Hitomi Nabatame, Alistair Abell, Kenji Nojima,

 Running Time: 288 minutes

Certificate: 12

Shana is yet another anime that deals with blade wielding highschoolers with mystical powers fighting supernatural creatures. That’s not an automatic negative against the series, but it’s hardly enough to grab the attention of casual or dedicated anime viewers. We follow Yuji, a young man who, in the previous series, was set upon by Rinnes. Rinnes are servants to Crimson Lords or Denizens. Anyway, Yuji was eventually saved by Shana, a Flame Haze, whose job it is to destroy such creatures.

If some of the terminology in that last paragraphed caused question marks to appear above your head, then don’t worry, you are not alone. In fact, one of the extras has two characters explaining individual pieces of terminology for 4 minutes at a time. »
