Viewster has bolstered its ranks with a pair of interesting and very different shows today that are now available on their service. The first is the acquisition of streaming rights for E’s Otherwise, a curious series that ADV Films licensed and released on DVD years ago. The full twenty-six episode series is now streaming in its original Japanese language with English subtitles. Additionally, the second OVA for School Days with Magical Heart Kokoro-chan has now been added as well, which brings a good bit of fun for fans to check out. That OVA has been picked up and released by Discotek Media in North America.
E’s Otherwise: Based on the super-popular comic, and produced by Studio Pierrot, E’s Otherwise is the story of a latent psychic brought into the fold of a shadow-y crime-fighting corporation. Kai Kudou has certain … powers. Basically, he’s a superhuman, also known as an “E.” Once he’s resuscitated, Kai is under the protection of the ASHURUM Corporation—where he is delegated to the ASHURUM special force, also known as AESES, where he undergoes intensive training to become a one-man psychic crime-fighter. Once free, Kai vows to protect his sickly sister Hikaru, who also “belongs” to the organization.
School Days – OVA 2—Magical Heart Kokoro-chan: Kokoro, Sekai, Hikari and Nanami receive a strange phone call and end up in a secret underground facility, where they learn that a mysterious gas is turning men into lecherous zombies. The girls form the Radish Mobile Squad to confront this new evil!
