From the director of Queen’s Blade: The Exiled Virgin comes a thrilling combo of action and fantasy featuring six never before seen OVAs!

 

Raishin Akabane and his beautiful companion Yaya enroll at Walpurgis Royal Academy to study Machinart: a dangerous blend of magic and technology. Raishin is a puppeteer capable of using magic to power up Yaya, his automaton, for ruthless battles no mere human could survive. In the wrong hands, Yaya is a deadly weapon, but the honorable Raishin, despite his mysterious quest for vengeance, takes no pleasure in killing for sport. Instead, he joins forces with a harem of gorgeous classmates to unmask those responsible for a rash of heinous human experimentation. If new enemies and terrible grades don’t spell doom for Raishin, he and Yaya might live long enough to conquer the school where magic meets machine!

tokyo ravens keyMarch comes in like a lion and out like a…raven? This month’s FUNimation at the Movies screening is Tokyo Ravens!

 

synopsis:

Harutora may seem like an ordinary guy, but he’s actually a descendent of an ancient and powerful clan of omyouji. Born without the family talent for magic, he’d always believed he was destined for a normal, boring existence. All that changed the day Natsume, a beautiful face from Harutora’s past, barged back into his life and forever altered the course of his future. When her sudden arrival leads to a violent and tragic encounter with a magical prodigy, Harutora agrees to fulfill a childhood vow by accompanying Natsume to the clandestine Onmyo Academy. Together, along with their incredible onmyouji classmates, they’ll attempt to survive life at a school where not even magic can get you out of your homework.

Meet the stunning characters of this show and pre-order your copy today!

 

Yaya UMD

Yaya is a beautiful automaton who is fiercely devoted to her puppeteer, Raishin. She was built by the legendary puppet maker, Shoko. Yaya is incredibly jealous by nature, and she won’t hesitate to use her incredible powers to inflict great damage upon anyone who comes between her and her puppeteer. Raishin quiet often must literally fight off Yaya’s rather intense displays of affection!

 

 

 

Charlotte UMD

Charlotte is stunning blonde puppeteer born of wealth and nobility. Her severe, solitary nature – along with her dinosaur automaton Sigmund – earned her the nickname Tyrant Rex. She is one of the most formidable warriors at the academy, but not even her skill as a puppeteer can keep her from obsessing over a less than bombastic bustline. Although she pretends to be unimpressed by Raishin, she is secretly quite drawn to him.

 

 

UMD Frey

Frey is a clumsy and curvaceous puppeteer who commands the canine automaton, Rabbi. She shares a dark and twisted past with her stern brother, Loki. Frey is a true lover of animals, but her affections don’t end there. She becomes increasingly fond of Raishin as the series progresses

 

 

UMD Shoko

This mysterious and revered puppet maker’s divine female form can make even the most battle tested warrior weak in the knees. But don’t let her comely curves deceive you – she’s a devious as she is desirable. Shoko built Yaya and many of the most powerful puppets in existence. Beyond that, she wields powerful influence over Raishin, the result of a clandestine contract forged with the boy in the wake of great tragedy.
