New Release Tuesday – Love and Zombies

Part 2 of Aquarion EVOL is finally available. Get your mech fix today!

 

synopsis:

 

The intergalactic hijinks continue as beings from a womanless planet target the girls of the newly coed Neo-DEAVA academy. Meanwhile, a mysterious villain’s plot slowly comes to light, Amata’s past is revealed, and Mikono finds herself in the middle of a really awkward threesome. The hormone-fueled pilots will have to survive unusual training methods and swimsuit-filled secret missions in order to grow strong enough to kick some otherworldly tail, but as the boys and girls get closer to each other, they discover that destiny might not be on their side. Victory could require the legendary mecha Aquarion’s ultimate form—even if summoning it means breaking an intimate taboo. From the studio behind Fairy Tail and Macross comes an epic climax 12,000 years in the making.
