K-ON!! Season 2 Headlines Three Show Setlist
Posted by: Rai | August 10, 2012
This Friday we've got 2 special releases for you guys, as well as one of the most anticipated anime that we've had here in a while: K-ON!! Season 2 English dubbed. If you've been keeping up with the news around here, you'll know that the original voice actresses from the Bandai dub made it onto this release, so there's no missing a single beat when watching.
For two full years, Yui, Mio, Ritsu and Tsumugi have worked together to keep Sakuragaoka Girl's High School's struggling Light Music Club alive. Along the way they’ve begun to build a reputation as real rock musicians. However, with a new school year, there are new and scary challenges ahead! There are college exams to prepare for, replacement members have to be recruited and friends to say goodbye to. But no matter what happens, they’ll always have each other and their music.
Sequel and a Prequel
Our August Anime Flood is wrapping up soon, with 6 special releases announced so far. Today marks the 7th and 8th releases to go live this month, and they're two of the most anticipated of the bunch. If you weren't satisfied with the way things ended in Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, then you're in luck, because today the second season officially starts on Anime Network!
Alongside Horizon s2, the Hakuoki saga continues in Hakuoki ~ Demon of the Fleeting Blossom – Dawn of the Shinsengumi. (PHEW!) While this may be the third season of the series, it's actually a prequel to season 1 of Hakuoki, so dive in without reservation. There's just one more special release left this month, but you can be sure that we'll continue to bring you the latest and greatest anime straight from Japan!
Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere II
Taking advantage of the opportunity that the Mikawa Conflict provides, Tori and his comrades attempt to rescue Horizon from the Testament Union. But even as the Floating City Musashi speeds towards its next destination, the Floating Island England, Tres España is preparing its own armada for war against the British Islanders. Now, as the quest of Horizon’s emotions builds to its climax, Tori’s new battle is about to begin in the land ruled by the Fairy Queen! The reenactment of the history described in the mysterious Testament continues as the secret of the Armor of Deadly Sins is unleashed in the spectacular second season of Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere!
Hakuoki ~ Demon of the Fleeting Blossom - Dawn of the Shinsengumi
1863 - As political discord erupt into violence, the Tokugawa Shogunate sends a force of masterless samurai called the Roshigumi to Kyoto. However, assassination has split them into two opposing factions: the stronger is led by the brutal Serizawa Kamo and the lesser by the more honorable but less assertive Isami Kondo. It is to this pack of wolves that Ryunosuke Ibuki is forced to be a virtual slave by blood debt, hating the samurai and everything they stand for. Yet, as he sees how the other half live, he begins to believe that there may still be a chance, for both himself and Japan.
