To our U.K. streamers: We see you, we hear you, and we certainly haven’t forgotten about you.
With the massive influx of anime titles available to stream in the U.S., it’s easy for our U.K. picks to get lost in the mix. Start your week off right with a few selections available in the U.K. that simply don’t get enough love.
Based loosely off of The Count of Monte Cristo, this pick is a classic in the making. Science fiction & fantasy are two peas in a pod within the world of anime, and Gankutsuou is no different.
Visual style is the true star of the show, with backgrounds frequently rendered in 3D. You may have read the book, but we can guarantee you’ve never enjoyed anything quite like this before.
Outlaw Star just doesn’t get enough love. Frequently hidden in the shadow of Cowboy Bebop, this space western is packed with drama & comedy. It’s gotten a bad rep in the past for its “slow developing plot”, but like a fine wine, the best developments take time. Buckle up for space pirates, bounty hunters, and super badass space crafts.
Act quickly, though! This pick is only available on our site ’til February 25th.
Ever heard a song so beautiful it inspired you to join the military? Us, neither.
Sound of the Sky is the ultimate pick for a little girl-power inspiration. Follow Kanata as she works towards becoming a bugler in a post-apoloclyptic world unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. It’s rare for an anime to highlight power-girls, and dammit we appreciate it. The visuals are romantic & the soundtrack is damn inspiring.
We recommend streaming these picks from your desk right at work, cuz, Monday.
