It's been a long wait for the next instalment of one of our favourite franchises in the AllTheAnime catalogue but the wait is nearly over as in just a few weeks time Durarara!! x2 (Part 2: Ten) comes to Blu-ray and DVD! Today we'll be telling you what to expect from our release.
This is the second arc of the second season in the Durarara!! franchise. The first arc of season 2, Shou, is available now on Blu-ray and DVD.
Synopsis (of Part 2: Ten):
"The story continues as more chaos ensues—
In the aftermath of the assault against Izaya Orihara, the information broker, signs of new disorder begin to develop like ripples across the water. Holding his own ideals, Mikado gains the powers of both the “Dollars” and the “Blue Squares” and started “cleaning” the bad seeds inside the Dollars. Meanwhile, Shizuo Heiwajima and Tom Watanabe end up hiring Varona for their debt collecting business. Paths cross and trouble brews as the plot thickens in this complicated web of conspiracies."
Following in similar style to our release of Durarara!! x2 (Part 1: Shou), our release of Part 2: Ten continues the look and presentation, with a design similar that means both releases will sit nicely next to each other on your shelf.
The release comes packed in a rigid case with a digipack to store the two Blu-ray discs. Also included is a 32-page booklet, and 6 art cards.

Studies of Japan’s media have predominantly focused on commercial cultural products such as anime, manga, film, music and literature, while sidestepping the provocative notion that, with its variegated patchwork of sounds, flashing lights and screens that play such a key role in defining the moods and tempos of its distinct urban areas, Japan is media. As trite and tendentious as this statement may seem, Paul Roquet’s Ambient Media: Japanese Atmospheres of Self, an exploration of the history of the constantly shifting streams of background noises and images, certainly encourages one to think along these lines.

Based on a red-hot manga by Gamon Sakurai, Ajin is part of the resurgence of horror anime which began with the world-beating Attack on Titan. The protagonist is Kei Nagi, a withdrawn Japanese schoolboy. He lives in a present-day Japan, but with a tweaked history; seventeen years ago, a number of ‘Ajin’ (Demi-Human) demonic beings appeared in the world. They can’t die, whatever injuries they suffer, and they can summon tattered monster mummies to destroy their enemies.
But here’s the thing; the Ajin look like us. While some have been captured by the authorities – there are gruesome video clips floating around the net – there might be other Ajin anywhere, even in Kei’s class. Not that the self-absorbed Kei pays that any heed, right until he steps into a road, into the path of a speeding truck. His classmates see it all; Kei’s body shattered, horribly mangled under the wheels… and then regenerates under a black miasma and coming back to life. Continue Reading

This June an eye-catching TV advert debuted in Japan, promoting the humble cup noodle. The advert reinterpreted, of all things, Kiki’s Delivery Service. Technically, that’s not the same as a reworking of Studio Ghibli’s Kiki. Kiki was a book before it was Miyazaki’ed, and it’s had non-Ghibli incarnations as a live-action film and an acclaimed London stage play (returning to the boards this August). Nonetheless, most viewers of the ad would see it as a riff on Miyazaki’s film, especially as the commercial is animated.
One obvious thing about the ad is how un-Ghibli it is. Its ravishing visuals look nothing like the Ghibli style. It relies more on effects work (fireworks, scattered blossoms, raindrops) which don’t suggest an artist’s presence, though many gifted artists must have slaved on them. Rather than a Joe Hisaishi tune or a retro song (like Yumi Matsutoya’s née Arai’s songs in Ghibli’s Kiki), the advert uses the alt-rock of Bump of Chicken, as heard on Blood Blockade Battlefront.
