The title wasn’t meant to be a Needless pun. <- That right there. That’s a Needless pun.
Sometimes it’s meant to be. You’re sitting there looking for something to write about and a press release just magically appears in your inbox. Sentai Filmworks have announced their February release schedule which includes the continuations of Eyeshield 21 (Collection 4 due out 2/8) and Gintama (Collection 4 due out 2/22), a You’re Under Arrest Fast and Furious Complete Collection due out 2/1 and the license of comedy action series, Needless.
If you’re unfamiliar with Needless consider yourself one of the lucky ones. Produced by Madhouse and premiering in the summer of 2009, the series takes place in a future where the world has been ravaged. Survival is hard but humans make it even harder by exiling humans called Needless who have contracted a disease giving them special powers. The main character is an orphan named Cruz looking for his family when he meets the odd Eve and her friend, the Kamiya on steroids clone Adam Blade. The series will be released in multiple sets with the first collection being released on DVD and Blu ray on February 15th.
Eh… I know that any license is a good license and I hope this one does well for them. I recall giving this one a chance once and having one of the strongest instinctual rejection reactions ever. It’s a lie to say that I’m looking forward to giving this one another spin though.
