Review Mars Red is an action/military, vampire series produced by the studio Signal.MD. Me being a sucker for vampire series I couldn’t help but give this a look and I was encouraged when reading the premise of the show. Mars Red is set in Tokyo during the 1920s and follows a special vampire unit led by Yoshinobu Maeda. This vampire unit is an experimental team that is deployed to undertake covert vampire hunting missions. It is also assigned the additional task of procuring additional...
Type Moon Newz!!! Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya Licht - Namae no Nai Shōjo movie Type Moon fans rejoice! I make a news annoucement (I use the term news loosely) stating a bunch of releases that is bound to get Type Moon fans excited. First and foremost is the long awaited Illya movie that is due to premier on August 27th. And before you ask, this movie will actually feature Illya in this move unlike the previous one. To get people in the mood here is a promotional video of the movie...
Review Odd Taxi is a mystery series and I would say a surprise hit for the spring season. When observing the promotional picture of this anime one could easily be mistaken that this series was catered for kids seeing as the show is filled with anthropomorphic animals. Not only that but the studio OLM most extensive works include the Pokémon franchise. However, if one were to take even a cursory glance at any single episode you will quickly discover it is anything but a simple child’s story...
NIS America announced on Thursday 24th June the long awaited games Trails of Zero (Zero no Kiseki) and Trails of Azure (Ao no Kiseki) were to be released in the west for the PS4 and Switch platforms. For those not in the know these two games are part of the larger Legend of Heroes franchise from Falcom. In my opinion these two games represent the pinnacle of the entire series and are classics that need to be played. The localisation has actually come through unconventional means as the...
Review: Hige wo Soru. Soshite Joshikousei wo Hirou otherwise known as Higehiro: After Being Rejected, I Shaved and Took in a High School Runaway is a romantic drama produced by the studio Project No.9. I suppose by reading the title of this anime coupled by the fact it is a romantic series will have some people running for the hills. It is certainly a bold decision to not only cast the primary relationship with characters of such differing ages but also make the girl a teenager. Alarm bells...
Review: Vivy: Fluoride Eye’s Song is a sci-fi, action/thriller with musical elements. It is an anime orignal story which was produced by Wit Studio. Wit Studio previous works have included great anime series such as Attack on Titan, Vinland Saga and Owari No Sereph. As a result of Wit Studio’s previous works I was keen on giving this a go hoping this would be another hidden gem and for the most part I was not disappointed. The basic premise for Vivy Fluoride is that in 100 years’ time an...
Review: Godzilla Singular Point is the latest in the long-lasting franchise that is Godzilla. I cannot claim to be a Godzilla buff (despite the handle I use) so any easter eggs or allusions made in previous movies will be missed by me. With that out the way this latest rendition of Godzilla is an anime original story which was a collaboration between Bones animation studio and Netflix so we know this one is going to be a big budget release which one would hope has a good dose of original...
Review: Ijiranaide, Nagatoro-san otherwise known as Don't Toy with Me, Miss Nagatoro is a slice-of-life, comedy/romantic series staring the titular character Nagatoro and her often teased senpai (older classmate) Hachiouju. Don’t Toy with Me, Miss Nagotoro has a similar dynamic to the series Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san (Teasing Master Takagi-san). It, in essence, centres on the relationship of Nagatoro and her source of jokes (and affections) towards her senpai following all the pranks and...
Review: How to summon a demon lord season two is an isekai, ecchi, harem series and as the name implies is a continuation from the first season which originally aired in the summer of 2019. Now with this being a harem and ecchi series I can say with certainty that Demon lord will NOT be for everyone. If you do not like harem shows then I would advice you stay well clear of this as there is nothing here that really goes beyond the beaten path. This one plays by the numbers so only open the...
Review: Slime Taoshite 300-nen, Shiranai Uchi ni Level Max ni Nattemashita or I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level is an isekai/fantasy, slice-of-life, comedy series. Not to be confused with the similarly titled slime series called: “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime” which also confusingly is another isekai/fantasy series. This Slime series centres on Azusa Aizawa who is a 27-year-old woman who dies from overwork only to be reincarnated as a witch who is...
Review: Sentouin, Hakenshimasu! otherwise known as Combatants Will Be Dispatched is a comedy, action, fantasy series. What is notable and garnered attention to this show is the fact the original manga was written by Natsume Akatsuki; the creator of the hit series Konasuba. Personally, I enjoyed Konasuba and upon hearing of the release of this series I was looking forward to giving it a go. Combatants Will Be Dispatched does share some similarities with Konasuba as both series parody the...
Review: Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out! Is a slice of life, romantic, comedy series which initially released in the summer of 2020. At the time of its release Uzaki created quite a stir in the anime community. Most of this controversy was laid at the titular character Uzaki and her somewhat childlike and sexualised image. If you are a person that is sensitive to any provocative moments then this series may not be for you. If I am to give my honest opinion, I believe that this criticism was...
Assault Lily's early 4th series, the leader of the ashes, `Matsunaga Special Squadron` Captain [Matsunaga Yui] has renewed the head parts including facial expressions to new modeling [ver. Renewed as .1.5]! The catgirl-type head accessories that were well received in the first edition are still alive! Uniforms are only allowed to be worn by students who belong to the special forces [special forces] among Sagami girls. The red uniform worn by Matsunaga is for the captain. The three-stage...
"The [Kina's Fantasy Romanes] series, which is designed and supervised by popular illustrator Kazuharu Kina. The first is [Milene], a Gothic doll that has been handed down from ancient times to famous families. A long time ago, [Milene], who was taken over by the Deshar family, became like a fallen angel with darkness after a long time and history." Introducing the latest creation from Azone under the Iris Collect Series, 'Milene' the Fallen Angel of the Deshar Family, a 1/3 scale...
I think it is about time to face reality, FTV / MATV has been practically dead for some time now, and despite my best efforts to try to find anyone willing to help or even write posts, no one is interested. Therefore, I will start to close some of the site down, starting with items that are the least used and that have a financial cost to them. At present, the first items I am looking at will be: Karaoke Monster Fansub TV blogs* *Although I do not pay for the blog hosting, these are...
Bringing back the FTV tradition of randomness and frontpage place holder posts, here is a quick post for week 3 of February. Would anyone like some game content on FTV? Let us know! I'm currently looking at an Aura Kingdom private server as well as a FS19 dedicated server. Reply to the forum post if interested. In the meantime, have some Colonel Failure playing Farming Simulator 2019. Why? Well why not, Farm sim is good and the Colonel is funny.

Welcome to yet-another-update of the website, this time the change is to our front page. Over the history of the site we have had many different designs, from anime updates to the pulse system and the Necromendations. The past 5 years we have been in a bit of limbo, with a mix of broken parts of the pulse system and hastily placed Crunchyroll updates, it has not always been ideal. Therefore, I am pleased to announce our new article system where by contributors can write and publish articles...
