Heaven's Lost Property: the Angeloid of Clockwork (Blu-ray/DVD) Review stars

Those who know me know that I hold the series Heaven's Lost Property (Sora no Otoshimono) in high regard -- it's one of my favorite series that's come out within the past few years. With its often perfect blend of ecchi comedy, sci-fi action, and mystery along with a sprinkling of melodrama, it's the type of series where you can check your brain at the door and simply enjoy it for what it is. So when I heard that there was a movie, Heaven's Lost Property: the Angeloid of Clockwork coming out on DVD/Blu-ray from FUNimation, there were plenty of reasons for me to get excited. After watching the film, I can say that it's a great microcosm of what makes the series great, but occasionally frustrating at the same time.

Heaven's Lost Property: Forte (DVD) Review stars

A direct sequel to last year’s release of Heaven’s Lost Property, Heaven’s Lost Property: Forte is a great example of a sequel improving on the quality of the original. Much like Francis Coppola’s Godfather II, as fun and entertaining as the first series was, the sequel improves on it in both story and entertainment value.

Heaven’s Lost Property (DVD/Blu-ray) Review stars

If you were given a sexy, busty, female android who would do anything for you, what would you do with her? If you’re anything like me, you would make her get down on her knees and give you fanservice. Not that kind of fanservice you sick minded person, but rather “fan” service as in using a traditional bamboo hand fan to cool off. Hey, it’s hot here in California and I have a robot that will do whatever I want! That’s the premise behind FUNimation’s fourteen-episode ecchi series, Sora no Otoshimono or Heaven’s Lost Property, where run-of-the-mill protagonist Tomoki Sakurai gets the chance of a lifetime to experience true bliss and yes, he’s a lucky bastard for it. At first, though, he finds the idea rather repugnant.
