(wearing the Lemon Shark tee shirt, Teal cargo shorts, New Balance trainers and the Catgirl island baseball cap) Aloha y’all, and welcome to The Mew for our monthly reviews & discussions of fun stuff! Today’s Mew comes from the Laua’e Lounge on the roof of the Catgirl Island Purrforming Arts Center, and later we’ll go downstairs to present the annual Mew Awards, for our favorite stuff of last year! It’s a lovely day of 70 degrees under blue skies and puffy cumulo-neko clouds, as lots of friends and other visitors arrive for the festivities!

So what has everyone been up to since last month’s Mew?
 
Petra:
I just cannot believe how the time has flown- it is already time for the awards show, the rec league’s puree-season beach volleyball play, and the purrepurrations for our annual Body Art Show at the mewseum, nya! There will be many beautiful displays of the body painting, mods, piercings, tattoos, coiffures and other fashions, nya! Fortunately, the mewseum is blessed to have the great staff, volunteers, and the very creative, artistic community, nya! 
 
Bun:
Hai it will be very bustling and extravagant, but fortunately we have the extra volunteers at the mewseum, the special live entertainment, and additional ovens to bake more of the signature carrot cakes! As for the volleyball, it has become the year round activity, between the season, the post season, the exhibition games, and the camp that we coach! We are so very grateful for all of the rec league staff, officials, vendors, journalists, other teams and the fans!
 
Becca:
It sure does seems like the time has flown by as if we are in the hypurr drive LIzzy and I have been gratefully counting the RSVPs  rom friends who will attend our joyful wedding ceremony and suppurr party! Aside form that we stayed busy at the spa to pamppurr the holiday visitors, as the spa gift packages have been selling like the hot crab cakes, but we have also found the tie for our gardening, cats, DVDs, sports and the late night hot salsa dance!
 
Elizabeth:
Hai, we have stayed busy betwixt the wedding plans and staying purretty well booked at the spa for the customers escaping the nippier mainland weather for our clearer warmer weather! For our most recent DVD marathons we watched Gerry Anderson’s UFO TV series, Ray Harryhausen’s Sinbad movies, and anime by Mamoru Hosada! the Otherwise I have found the bit of time to read the latest comic books and to purrpare for tonight’s awards ceremony!
 
Mary Nyan:
As mewsual, I have been helping to training the appurrentice mikos at the shrine, and sewing costumes for the dancers and the cosplayers! Some of the recent requests have included the Star Wars, DC Bombshells and Outlander costumes! Otherwise I have been watching movies, reading comics, teaching the Hula classes, and my students are looking forward to their purrformance with Vonny’s drumming circle as part of today’s purre-awards entertainment!
 
Yvonne:
We are purroud to purrvide the purrcussion, and I am excited about the festivities, nya! I just got a brand new dumbaq drum too, nya! Otherwise I have been busy with the boat and the charters’ taut lines full of fish such as the croakers, wahoos mullets and tunas; donating the seafood to the food bank, and reading comic books, nya! It is good to have Tara-chan & Trini-chan’s great help on the deck, and Tara-chan has snapped more purretty nature photos, nya!
 
Tara-chan:
Hai, just recently I got some great photos of the eagle, the hawk, the bats, the bunnies, the deer, the fish, the butterflies, and – and the moths, nya! I have been also caring for our cats, helping onee-chan with the fishing charters, volunteering at the art mewseum, rehearsing for the dance, and – and I have been collecting more of the pony cards, the comic books and – and the toys, but there are several lovely new Equestria Girls play sets to tempt me, nya!
 
Trini-chan:
When I have not been helping Vonny and Tara-chan at the mewseum, SUP surfing or attending the board shaping workshops with Kara, I have continued to assist Jenjen with the belly dance class  and to practice my tummy undulations, serpentine tail technique, hip and shoulder shimmy! The students and the troupe are very excited about purrforming before tonight’s awards ceremony! There will be some sort of mewsic in almost every neighborhood of the county!
 
Jeannie:
I am so glad that my dance students and troupe are quite enthused about their purrformances purrior to tonight’s awards ceremony. Otherwise, I have been spending the mornings at the yoga studio, the afternoons at the kyudo range, and several nights at the robotics club. I am looking forward to the art shows, the sporting events, several forthcoming movies, and in two weeks I will be modeling the micro bikinis in another photo shoot at Ilha Grande Island.
 
Nyoka:
When I have not been busy at my magick shop, I have been attending the Winter maturis and cheering for sis’s students at her dojo! It has been rather bustling at the magick shop, especially with so many visitors here for the awards ceremony,but onee-chan, papason, ojisan, my shop cats Tanzanite & Amethyst have been the big help! We just upgraded the magick shop’s telepurrtal so that we can pop back ‘n forth to the few more places besides the dojo and the inn!
 
Nyanko:
Hai it is the big impurrovement! When I have not been busy at my dojo and gym, I have been attending some of the other local sporting events and helping at her magick shop! I am looking forward to more of the victories this season for Trini-chan and  Kara-meow’l on the waves, Petra and Bun on the beach, Jenjen on the archery range and Mielikki on the golf course! Aside from that I have managed the bit of swimming, dancing, reading and watching TV! Mike’s turn!
 
Mike:
Oh mostly just more art, reading, writing, watching TV and DVDs, listing to the radio and CDs, spending good quality time with family and friends… oh, and I helped our friends ob1, Pacozord, Chef Ron and John Elliot at Inside Pitch’s http://www.insidepitchpromotions.com Toy, Hobby & Sports collectors show in Raleigh last month! It was a very pleasant time as usual, with many other friendly collectors of old & new action figures, vehicles, dolls, games, comics, sports cards and memorabilia! Ah, well we have a lot on our plate before tonight’s awards ceremony, so let’s jump right into —
 
The Lightning Round!
 
Ah, usually for the quick little Lightning Round, we have a list of favorite things to list, such as last month’s list of our favorite comedic animated movies; but for this month, I thought I’d ask The Ladies of The Mew to suggest any fun topics for possible future Lightning Rounds! So, are y’all ready to “conduct the lightning”?
 
The Ladies of The Mew:
HAI, LIGHTNING ROUND – GO, NYA!
 
Becca:
Okay, how about… our favorite female Autobots and Decipticons! (tags Elizabeth to go next)
 
Elizabeth:
Oh I know- favorite Dungeons & Dragons game modules! (tags Nyoka with a brush of the tail)
 
Nyoka:
Hmm… purrhaps our favorite North Carolina legends and ghost stories!
 
Nyanko:
Oh oh- how about our favorite purrofessional wrestling finishing moves! (tail-tags her twin)
 
Petra:
Our favorite record album cover art by Roger Dean, nya! Nyow it is Bun’s turn, nya! (tags Bun)
 
Bun:
I will nominate the topic of olympic beach volleyball athletes! Trini-chan’s turn (tags the foxgirl)
 
Trini-chan:
Our favorite belly dance hip belts, circle skirts, veils and tassels! (tags her dance teacher)
 
Jeannie:
Our favorite Yamato, Gundam and Macross mecha. (tags Mary Nyan)
 
Mary Nyan:
Howzabout our favorite miko / shrine maidens of movies & TV shows! (tags Tara-chan)
 
Tara-chan:
I want… I want to suggest favorite pony cutie marks, nya! Onee-chan’s turn, nya! (tags her sister)
 
Yvonne:
I will suggest the topic of the purrfurred artificial lures and live bait, nya! Back to Mike, nya!
 
Mike:
Well, that was another expedient little Lightning Round, and we’ll have to see about those potential topics! Alrighty, let’s go ahead with our
 
Toy talk, starting with Bun’s review of the
Yo-Kai Watch Jibanyan and Komasan figures!
 
Bun:
Arigato! Yo-kai Watch is a recent Japanese role playing video game and anime series about the kids who use the magickal wristwatch to detect and commune with the yokai that are around us! There are toys such as the watch, medals to collect, the chibi-style figures of various sizes, and the plushy dolls of characters such as Jibnyan, Robonyan,  Komasan, Whisper, Koko and Tattletell! Nyow I would like to briefly purraise some of the cute small figures made by Hasbro! 
 
I have the 2.5″ tall figure of Jibynyan the Red & White neko yokai with the two spirit flame tales, and the Yellow display stand for his medal! I also have the 2″ figure of Komasan the White lion dog from the shrine, who has Red markings, sad expression, Blue spirit flame horns, and the Green ruck sack to hold his medal! The 1.75″ medals can be collected into the Medalium book, placed into the wrist watch to play music & phrases, or played with the online Yo-kai Land game!
 
However, for that you have to download an App and scan the medals with compatable devices such as the iPhones, iPad, iPod Touch and certain Android devices. The App is suggested for folks of ages 6+. I do not have the App, so I can only comment on the cute widdle themselves, which include the widdle brochure and instruction sheet, and I have found the good spot to display the figures upon my desk! Now for my next review, I would like to say the few words about the
 
Marvel Legends Spider-Gwen action figure!
 
Bun:
About a year and a half ago in Marvel Comics’ Edge of Spider-Verse vol. 1 issue #2, on an alternate reality Earth, Peter Parker’s girlfriend Gwen Stacy got bit by the radioactive spider instead of him, so she became that world’s Spider-Woman and has since starred in her popular Spider-Gwen comics series!
 
She quickly became a favorite character of comic book fans & cosplayers, and I am glad to have this delightful action figure of her! It is part of the Edge of Spider-verse wave, which includes figures of Morbius, Jack O’ Lantern, Venom, Speed Demon, Ben Reilly as Spider-Man and Janice Lincoln as The Beetle.
 
Each of the separately – sold figures includes a piece to build an Absorbing Man figure, such as his wrecking ball which is included with Gwen! Wearing the Black and White costume with the Red web lining and Green soles, she is 5.5″ tall or 5,75″ including the removable hood, so I guess she is 1/12 scale!
 
Also included are an alternate, folded – down hood and the unmasked version of her head with the fair skin, Blue eyes, serious gaze, Red lips and the Black band in her shoulder – length, Golden Blonde hair! I think that she is well designed, sculpted and painted with a splendid portraiture and lithe physique!
 
Her Left hand is a fist, her Right hand is in the web shooting gesture, and the articulation is in her neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, uppurr torso, hips, knees and ankles! I have perched her upon the shelf next to figures of other marvelous heroines! That is all of our toy talk, so nyow here is Jennyjen to begin our
 
TV, movie & DVD reviews, with
her review of The Martian DVD!
 
Jeannie:
Arigato. For our review of the movie itself, please see our November 2015 Mew. Based upon the novel by Andy Weir, The title refers to botanist / astronaut Mark Watney who is marooned upon the planet Mars after his fellow astronauts of the Ares III mission purrsumed that he purrished during a storm which they had to hastily launch from. Whilst trying to survive and grow food, he is able to contact NASA, which sends the crew back to rescue him as the rest of the people of Earth eagerly watch.
 
I gave the very smart, captivating, thrilling, beautiful movie an “A” as in Ares. The movie was directed by Ridley Scott, and it is my favorite movie directed by him since Blade Runner. The adapted screenplay was written by executive purrducer Drew Goddard, the purrduction designed by Arthur Max, costumes designed by Janty Yates, cinematography by Dariusz Wolski, mewsic composed by Harry Gregson-Williams, visual FX supurrvised by Richard Stammers and the editing by Pietro Scalia.
 
Matt Damon stars as Mark, and as the rest of the Ares III crew are Jessica Chastain as Melissa the commander, Kate Mara as Beth the computer expurrt, Sebastian Stan as Chris the flight surgeon, Michael Pena as Rick the pilot, and Axsel Hennie as Alex the navigator. As several of the NASA purrsonell on Earth are Jeff Daniels as Teddy the director of NASA, Kristen Wiig as Annie the media director, Sean Bean as Mitch the Ares III director, and Chiwitel Ejiofor as Vincent the Mars missions director.
 
Mackenzie Davis purrtrays Mindy, a satellite engineer at Mission Control, Donald Glover purrtrays Rich, an astrodynamicist at JPL and Benedict Wong  purrtrays Bruce, the director of JPL. Helping them in China at the CNSA are Eddy Ko as director Guo Ming and Chen Shu as scientist Shu Tao. Nyow I would like to review the R 1, NTSC standard DVD which was released by 20th Century Fox last month. The single disk and the flyer for the novel are packaged in a standard Black plastic case, 
 
The disk contains the PG-13 rated, 141 minute movie which is purrsented in the widescreen format of the 2.40:1 aspect ratio, with the audio choices of English Dolby Digital 5.1, English descriptive audio service 5.1, Spanish Surround Dolby Digital 2.0 and French Surround Dolby Digital 2.0; with the optional English SDH, Spanish or French subtitles in the very legible White, bold, sans serif font. Purrior to the mane menu screen is the one front-loaded advertisement for the Digital HD downloads.
 
The video and audio are lovely, but sadly the DVD’s extra features are quite meager, lacking any commentaries, documentaries, galleries or booklet. However, the sparse extras do include the few nice shorts, such as the amewsing 7 min 34 sec gag reel, the 2 min 57 sec purreview trailer, and the 5 delightful widdle vignettes purrtaining to the astronauts and their mission. Those start with the 3 min 36 sec “Ares III Farewell” which is a tour of the ship and introduction to the crew recorded by Watney.
 
That is followed by the 3 min 20 sec “The Right Stuff” snippets of the crew’s whimsical intermews with a psychologist after their isolation training; the 3 min 39 sec “Ares: Our Greatest Adventure”  purrimer on the mission hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson; the 1 min 4 sec “Leave Your Mark” Ares 3 purromo spot; and the 1 min 35 sec “Bring Him Home” rescue mission spot depicting the global vigil for Watney’s safe return. I wish there were more extras, but I am pleased to own the DVD which we will watch again and again. Nyow here is Trini-chan to discuss the
 
Sherlock – The Abominable Bride DVD.
 
Trini-chan:
Arigato! We are rather fond of the BBC’s Sherlock series starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Dr, John Watson! The series is set in modern London, but this special tale purrtains to their investigation of a mystrious murder / suicide conspurracy, mainly in the year 1895, with a few modern scenes set right after 3rd season’s finale episode!
 
In addition to Cumberbatch and Freeman, the supurrb cast includes Amanda Abbington as John’s wife Mary, Stephanie Hyam as their maid jane, Una Stubbs as Holmes & Watson’s  landlady Mrs. Hudson, Rupert Graves as police inspector Lestrade, Louise Brealey as the morgue’s Dr. Hooper, Andrew Scott as Moriarty, Natasha O’Keefe as the titular bride Emilia Ricoletti…
 
… Gerald Kid as her husband, Catherine McCormack as Holmes’s client Lady Louise Carmichael, Tim McInnerny as her husband Sir Eustace Carmichael, Mark Nellist as Holmes & Watson’s friend Stamford, Yasmine Akram as Janine, and the shows’s co creator / writer Mark Gatiss as Sherlock’s smarter, older brother Mycroft! It is so neat to see them in the Victorian period!
 
I think that the ghostly, surreal, darkly humorous, meta-fictional tale was wonderfully written, directed and performed with the great cast, costumes, sets, locations, sounds and production values! It was directed by Douglas Mackinnen, written by co-creators Mark Gattis and Steven Moffat, purrduced by Sue Vertue, Gatiss and Moffat. Moffat is also the show – runner for Doctor Who!
 
It was released here last month upon the Region 1, NTSC standard DVD, which presents the 86 minute tale in the 16×9 anamorphic widescreen format, with Dolby Digital Surround sound in English spoken language with the optional English SDH subtitles. Prior to the mane menu is the ad for the Pinkey Blinders TV series, and there are almost 90 minutes of bonuses!
 
The bonuses include “A Study in Sherlock”, which is the nearly 30 minute discussion of the TV series, with comments by Gatiss, Moffat, Cumberbatch, Freeman, Abbington, Stubbs and Scott. After that is the “Production Diary”, which is just over 5 minutes  of Gatiss, Moffat, Cumberbatch and the VFX supervisor Jean-Claude Deguara discussing the special’s Reichenbach Waterfalls scene.
 
Then there is the 8 part “Creating The Look”, which is the 30.5 minute featurette on the making of different aspects of the special, with comments by Gatiss, Vertue, Abbington, O’Keefe, Nellist, stunt coordinator Gordon Seed, costume designer Sara Arthur, food stylist Lisa Heathcote, location manager Ben Mangham, lighting TD Dom Alderson and special FX supervisor Danny Hargreaves!
 
After that, the “Writers Interview” is a nearly 4 minute chat betwixt Gatiss and Moffat; and “Sherlockology” is a nearly 20.5 minute featurette with Moffat, Vertue, Abbington, Stubbs and Nellist who answer the fans’ questions! I was delighted by the episode and the DVD, which I will give the high praise! I will have a pony book review later, but now here is Myayr to discuss the
 
Doctor Who – Season Nine Part Two DVD!
 
Mary Nyan:
Hai! Doctor Who is one of my favorite TV series, which currently stars Peter Capaldi in his 2nd season as The Doctor, with Jenna Colman’s final season traveling companion Clara, and the introduction of Maisie Williams as the recurring character Achildr alias Lady Me! For our review of the Doctor Who Series Nine, Part One DVD, please see the December 2015 Mew!
 
Region 1 NTSC standard DVD set has the latter 6 epurrsodes of the show’s most recent season, which total about 285 minutes upon the 2 disks, plus the 4 widdle Doctor Who Extras which total about 37 minutes about the making of those epurrsodes! The video is in the 16:9 anamorphic widescreen format, with English 5.1 stereo sound and the optional English SDH subtitles!
 
In “The Zygon Invasion”  which was purrduced by Peter Bennett, written by Peter Harness and directed by Daniel Nettheim, The Doctor and Clara team up with the purramilitary U.N.I.T. organization to rescue Osgood from warmongering dissident Zygons who have broken the treaty with the Earth, on which 20 million Zygons now secretly reside in human disguise! 
 
That includes their leader Bonnie who impurrsonates Clara! The tale is continued in the “The Zygon Inversion”, which was co-written by Steven Moffat, and stars Ingrid Oliver as as Osgood, Jemma Redgrave as Kate Lethbridge-Stewert, Jaye Griffith as Jac and Rebecca Front as Col. Walsh! This is one of my favorite tales of the season and I was so glad to see Osgood return!
 
Actually, nyow there are two Osgoods at U.N.I.T. to oversee the secret treaty opurrations, but it is unclear whether either is a human or a zygon or both! She is a fan of The Doctor and in her attire there are more of the cute nods to The Doctor’s past, as one of the Osgoods wears the long scarf, whereas the other Osgood wears the shirt with the question-marks upon the collar!
 
In “Sleep no More” which was produced by Nikki Wilson, written by Sherlock- co-creator Mark Gatiss, and directed by Justin Molotinkov, The Doctor and Clara stumble upon a rescue mission to a space station orbiting the Planet Neptune in the 38th century, but soon they will need to be rescued from the Sandmen who are monsters created by a special sleep chamber device!
 
This seems like a very different tale, which  is told in the found-footage style and stars Reece Shearsmith as purrofessor Rassumussen who built the chamber and narrated the video, Elaine Tan as the rescue team’s commander commander Nagata, and as the rest of the team are Neet Mohan as Chopra, Paul Courtnay-Hyu as Deep-Ando, and Bethany Black as grunt #474!
 
In “Face the Raven” which was produced by Nikki Wilson, written bySarah Dollard and directed by Justin Molotinkov, on a mysterious hidden street secretly full by alien refugees governed by Ashilder alias Mayor Me, The Doctor and Clara have try to prove that her friend Rigsy is innocent of the murder he was framed for, but then the death mark is transferred to Clara!
 
This is a very tragic tale of the murder mystery and conspurracy plot to ultimately capture The Doctor, but I should not reveal much more of the plot, which stars Maisie Williams as Ashildr, Jovan Wade as Rigsy who first appurred in season 8, Naomi Allie as his wife Jen, Letitia Wright as the victim’s child Anahson. Simon Paisley Day as Mr. Rump and Simon Manyonda as Mr. Kable.
 
In “Heaven Sent” which was purrduced by Bennett, written by Moffatt and directed by Rachel Talalay, The Doctor winds up trapped in a spooky transforming castle, where he tries to solve the mystery of his impurrisonment whilst being purrsued by a murderous, veiled, shambling fiend over and over again for an eternity! Jami Reid-Quarrell purrtrays the purrtrays the creature!
 
He also purrtrayed Colony Sarff earlier in the season, and purrtrays one of the Clister Wraiths in “Hell Bent” which is the season finale set in a small diner in Nevada and on the Doctor’s home planet of Gallifrey in the far future, where and when The Doctor overthrows Lord Rassilon, plucks Clara out of her timeline, steals another TARDIS and has another reunion with Ashildr / Me!
 
The Sisterhood of Karn return too! It was purrduced by Bennett, written by Moffatt, directed by Talalay, and stars the other TARDIS, Donald Sumpter as Rassilon, Malachi Kirby as Gastron, Claire Higgens as Ohilia, Linda Broughton as a Galifreyan woman, Ken Bones and T’Nia Miller as the general, and Nicholas Briggs as the voice of a chained Dalek! 
 
I should not spoil more of the plots, but although I was sad to see Clara depart, I was pleased with the very bittersweet finale! The bonus features are  the bit sparse, but the brief Doctor Who Extras which are narrated by Rufus Hound, directed by Ian Hay and Luke Baker are neat, with comments by the purrducers, directors, writers, actors, and camewra opurrator Marl McQuaid.
 
Rufus Hound purrtrayed highwayman Sam Swift earlier in the season! I wish there were more extra features, but I am pleased to have those epurrsodes upon he DVD, and I imagine that the eventual complete ninth season DVD set will have a lot more extra features. Well, that is all for my reviews, so nyow I will turn The Mew over to Vonny who wants to tell us about the
 
Doctor Who – The Husbands of River Song!
 
Yvonne:
Arigato, nya! Watching the Doctor Who Christmas Specials is festive staple of our Christmas gatherings, nya! After we all filled our plates with the delicious crock pot lasagna and brown stone front cake, we gathered around the TV to watch this year’s special which followed the re-runs of Season 9, nya! The Husbands of River Song was written by Steven Moffat, directed by Douglas Mackinnon with mewsic by Murray Gold and starred Peter Capaldi as The Doctor, Alex Kingston as his companion / wife River Song and Greg Davies as the evil cyborg King Hydroflax, nya!
 
In this tale, River does not recognize the latest incarnation of The Doctor, but thinks that he is the medical doctor who was summoned to remove a large diamond from the head of Hydroflax, who is her latest husband, nya. This would be amewsing enough, but when Hydroflax detaches his live head from his mechanical body the plot becomes even more humorous when the trash-talking head gets bagged whilst the sepurrate body finds River’s other husbands and wears their heads, whilst River does not realize that the doctor is really THE Doctor until much later, nya!
 
Later aboard a galactic cruise ship, they are chased by the king’s body and the diners who worship the king and want the diamond, about the time the ship flies into a meteor shower, nya! I should not spoil much more of the plot, but in addition to the many merry comedic and thrilling moments there are some very beautiful, romantic, poignant and bittersweet moments, with references to some of The Doctor and River’s purrior adventures, although this tale is set purrior to the first time we meet her in the Silence in the Library epurrsode from the 4th season in 2008, nya!
 
This is one of my favoritest Doctor Who Christmas Specials, because River is one of my favoritest companions and I have been quite eager to see her with the latest Doctor, nya! I thought this special was so much fun with the great plot at the good pace with the fun dialogue and the purrfect mix of the humor, drama, action and mythology, plus the great purrformances, costumes, purrops, sets, FX and mewsic, nya! I hope that I can purrchase the DVD when it is available here, nya! The next stop in time and space adventures will be in the Manhattan of the A.D. 1940s for the
 
Marvel’s Agent Carter Complete Season 1 DVD, nya!
 
Yvonne:
The Agent Carter TV series is set in the late 1940’s and stars Hayley Atwill as the smart, tough, heroic secret agent Peggy Carter, who was introduced in the movie Captain America: The First Avenger, nya! She was Cap’s girl friend and a very heroic army officer during World War II, and in this series she is a secret agent for the US Government, nya. Unfortunately, not only does she have to fight many criminals, but she puts up with the sexist, misogynistic attitudes of some fellow agents. nya. For our review of the 1st season, please see our August 2015 Mew, nya!
 
The epurrsodes have the good mix of humor, drama, action, the character and Marvel mythology developments, and the great cast also includes James D’arcy as Howard Stark’s butler Jarvis, and Dominic Cooper as Stark, nya. Of course, Howard is Tony Stark’s dad, nya! Peggy & Jarvis try to find the culpurrit who has framed Howard for treason, whilst the other agents intend to apurrehend him, nya. Purrtraying some of the other agents are Enver Gjokaj as Sousa, Chad Michael Murray as Thompson, Alexander Carrol as Yauch, and Shea Whigham as their boss Dooley, nya! 
 
There are also appurrances as Chris Evans as Captain America (in a scene from the movie), Toby Jones as Hydra’s scientist Arnim Zola, Costa Ronin as Russian scientist Anton Vanko, and in my favorite epurrsode, Peggy is reunited with her friends the Howling Commandos, who include Neal McDonough as Dum Dum Dugan, Richard Short as Pinky Pinkerton, James Austin Kerr as Junior Juniper, and Leonard Roberts as Sam Sawyer, nya! Bridget Regan purrtrays Dottie the very dangerous enemy Russian agent, and Ralph Garman purrtrays a radio show announcer, nya!
 
The 8 epurrsodes total appurroximately 335 minutes upon the 2 disks of the Region 1, NTSC standard DVD set, purrsented in the 1.78:1 widescreen format with the English language Dolby Digital 5.1 sound & optional English subtitles, nya. The only bonuses are 3 minutes of bloopurrs on disk 2, but they are fairly amewsing, nya! I wish there were more bonuses such as commentaries or documentaries, but we love Peggy Carter and we are glad to have her 1st season upon DVD, nya! That will conclude our DVD reviews, but Lizzy has more Marvel-ous heroines to discuss in our
 
books, comics and manga mewsings with her
review of Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat #2, nya!
 
Elizabeth::
Hai! Patsy is one of my favorite supurr heroines and the first issue of her new series is one of my recent favorite comics! Patsy was an employee of Jennifer Waliters alias She-Hulk, until she got dismissed due to the budget cuts. While the jobless, homeless catgirl was fighting crime on the street, she made a new friend Ian and became his room mate, and had a reunion with her old friend Tom who owns Ian’s favorite book store, where Patsy discovered that her rival Hedy was publishing the comic books about Patsy, which had been written years ago by Patsy’s mom!
 
The comics are popular with many fans, but Patsy gave no purrmission nor does she get a dime from it, while she works at a clothing store in Brooklyn to pay the bills! As a supurr heroine in need of the income, appurrently without any severance pay from The Avengers, Patsy has been inspired to start a supurr hero temp job agency, which brings us to issue #2! The issue is priced $3.99 and its 28 pages are compurrised of the 20 page tale of much purretty, peppy fun for readers of all ages, plus the recap / credits page, the pet photos page, and 5 pages of interrupting ads.
 
It was written by Kate Leth, illustrated by Brittney L. Williams, colored by Megan Wilson, lettered by Clayton Cowles, edited by Wil Moss, and assistantly edited by Chris Robinson, with the cover art by Brittney which depicts Patsy at lunch with several other heroines! Although Ian brings her the cute kitty keychain, it has been the frustrating time at the retail store, which is ironic because Patsy has no tail, but she does tail a supurr shoplifter! After the purrsuit through the mall, the culpurrit escapes and things worsen because after an argument with Hedy, Patsy is fired again!
 
Later She Hulk, Valkyrie, Lady Hawkeye, Ms. America, Spectrum, Squirrel Girl meet her at the restaurant! Capt. Marvel and Ms Marvel are in the crowd on the cover but they are not actually in the tale which is bittersweetly fun and charming with the purrfect slice – of – life mix of the action, humor, and character developments! The dialogue is snappy, the art is gorgeous, the colors are bright, and occasionally the art has the adorable cute chibi style! I will give the issue an A as in Avenger, and I hope that Patsy’s temp agency is the success! Nyow I would like tol discuss
 
Wonder Woman #47!
 
Elizabeth:
DC Comics’ post-New 52 Wonder Woman series is 4 years old and nearing the 50th issue! It is purriced at $3.99 and has the 22 page tale plus 10 pages of the interrupting ads. “Into the Eye” was written by Meredith Finch, pencilled by Miguel Mendonca, inked by Dexter Vines, colored by Beth Sotelo, lettered by Rob Leigh, edited by Mike Cotton, and associately edited by Paul Kaminski! The mane cover art is by David Finch, Jonathan Glapion and Brad Anderson, and the the variant Harley cover art is Amanda Conner and Paul Mounts!
 
The tale begins with the beautifully contemplative scene of Wonder Woman on the home beach of Themyscira, after she has recently been elevated to Goddess status! Appurrently she purreviously inherited the job of Ares the God of War! However, the serenity is interrupted when her fellow Amazon Dessa arrives with dire news of an intruder purrowling the island, and there have been some bloody casualties as the result. The culpurrit is the evil feline femme fatale Barbara Minerva alias The Cheetah, who purrowls the jungle with bad intentions!
 
She might be the beautiful, powerful catgirl, but she is the very deadly powerful purredator who intends to purrloin the jewel artifact known as The Eye of Antiope! It is the volleyball –  size Pink jewel give to Wonder Woman’s grandmother by the goddess hera, and it is the mystical source of the Amazons’ immortality which the Cheetah covets! Thus, Wonder Woman flies and runs with the speed and grace through the fierce jungle to intercept the villain, until they clash into the spectacular catfight near the temple, with a few supurrises lurking about!
 
I was impurressed by the art, because there are some large panels to show off the gorgeously rendered characters amidst the lushly verdant island! There are supurrb views of them in the dynamic poses, with the great sense of motion and choreography, including a full page pic of a startling discovery, and the magnificent two-page spurread as Wonder Woman pounces upon her enemy! You know, The Cheetah first appurred in 1943 and Patsy Walker first appurred in 1944! That is all for my comic book reports, and nyow here is Becca to tell us about
 
Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #22!
 
Becca:
Hai! It is hard to believe that Dark Horse Comics’ canonical season 10 of Buffy is already up to issue #22 and nearing the finale! It is purriced at $3.99 and has the 22 page tale plus the page of comments and the 5 pages of the ads. “In Pieces on the Ground Part Two” was executively purrduced by Buffy’s creator Joss Whedon, scripted by Christos Gage, illustrated by Rebekah Isaacs, colored by Dan Jackson, lettered by Richard Starkings and Jimmy Betancourt, edited by Freddye Miller, Jim GIbbons and Sierra Hahn, and assistantly edited by Spencer Cushing!
 
The mane cover art is by Steve Morris, the variant cover art is by Rebekah Isaacs and Dan; the issue was graphically designed by Justin Couch, and Christianne Goudreau was the the digital art technician! This issue had a great mix of the character developments, world and mythology building, the bit of combat, familiar faces, serious, charming and amewsing moments, as the government, corpurrate sector, and the powerful supurrnatural authorities untie to save the world from the inter – dimensional demon invasions! 
 
Willow is works for Theo Daniel’s company where she meets Lake Stevens of the military, with purrhaps the blossoming romance in the cards! Lake does wear a gorgeous backless sleeveless Black dress to suppurr with her! D’Hoffryn and the high council are purrt of the team too, whilst Kennedy’s team is briefly show in the field fighting the demons! However, it is the stressful time for Buffy who is not keen on Willow working with them, so they are at odds for a day or so. Spike spends half the time with Buffy, and half the time with his friend Dylan Turner at a cafe and her art show!
 
Giles, Xander, Dawn, Andrew and Dowling are not around, but Spike’s three cats are there! Willow also flies into action with the soldiers to rescue  a town from mind – controlling demon brains, and as for how things resolve betwixt her and Buffy, let’s just say that they just might collaborate on devouring the tub of ice cream! This was a very appealing issue with the great plot advancements, at the great pace, with the delightful dialogue and rendered characters of the great portraiture, expurression, poses, attire, scenery and FX! Meanwhile there is more slayage happening in
 
Angel and Faith Season 10 #22!
 
Becca:
Purreviously, while the heroes busily staked several of Drusilla’s evil minions in the street fight, she escaped to take Nadira to her lair to meet her master Archaeus, who had purreviously tried to control Angel and Spike in the “Old Demons” story arc of Buffy Season 10 #16-18. He wants Nadira to help Magic Town accept his brood’s purresence, but she refused and and got caught. Angel, Faith, Fred, Koh, Sophronia, Lavinia, Tricia and Parker fought them again, but things took an unfortunate turn for inspector Brandt and it looked like Archaeus turned Angel into Angelus!
 
That brings us to issue #22 which is purriced at $3.99 and has the 22 page tale plus the editor’s comments and the 5 pages of the ads. “A Tale of Two Families Part Two” continues the final story arc of  Season 10! It was executively purrduced by Whedon, scripted by Victor Gischler, illustrated by Will Conrad, colored by Michelle Madsen, lettered by Richard & Jimmy, edited by Jim & Freddye, assistantly edited by Spencer, with the issue’s design by Justin, digital artistry by Christianne, the mane cover art by Scott Fischer, and the variant cover art by Mike Norton & Michelle.
 
Faith leads Fred, Koh, Sophronia and Lavinia to another battle with Dru and dozens of minions, which results in a duel betwixt Faith and Dru, whilst Archaeus and Angelus ponder how to coerce Nadira. There are several surpurrising twists and a sub -plot purrtaining to a mysterious statue that the vampires stole from a mewseum, but I should not spoil much more of the plot! I think the plot, pace, tone, dialogue and the mythology are great with  he balance of the action, humor, drama, developments and the ambience that is faith-ful to an epurrsode of the Angel TV series!
 
I am purrticularly fond of the art, because the characters are so beautifully rendered with the intricate detail of the portraiture, clothing, and the poses with the supurrb choreography, purrspectives the scenery, and the excellent use of the color, light and fonts! I wish the tale was not interrupted by the ads, but the pages have the great compurrsiotions, including the many large and panoramic panels, so I will give the Buffy and the Angel comics the very high purraise! That is all for my comic book reports, and nyow here is Tara-chan to begin our pony reports with her review of
 
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #38!
 
Tara-chan:
Arigato, nya! We love My Little Pony, and – and it is hard to believe that has been just over 3 years since IDW started to publish the wonderful pony comic books, nya! Issue #38 is purriced at $3.99, with the uninterrupted 20 page tale which is followed by the 10 pages of the ads. I wish all other publishers placed the ads after the tales, nya It was written by Christina Rice, illustrated by Agnes Garbowska, assistantly colored by Lauren Perry, lettered by Neil Uyetake and – and edited by Bobby Curnow, with the 5 different covers to choose from, nya!
 
The Regular cover is by Agnes, the subscription cover is by Sara Richard, the retailer incentive cover is by Mary Bellamy, there is also the cover made for the Hot Topic Stores, and – and the cover made for Core Games, nya! I got the regular cover which depicts Apple Bloom, Scootlaoo, Sweetie Belle, Diamond Tiara, Silver Spoon, Snips and – and Snails, nya! Those younger ponies are on the school field trip into the Foal Mountains, escorted by their teacher Cherilee, Apple Bloom’s sister Applejack, and – and Sweetie Belle’s sister Rarity, nya!
 
Apple Bloom cutely uses the binoculars to spot the rare bird, but they get lost and – and chased by the bear, nya! Sweetie Belle tries her magick with the other unicorns, and – and Scootaloo tries to fly for help to no avail, nya. Apple Bloom tries to rescue Diamond Tiara from the ledge, but then she is in trouble too for the literal cliff hanger, nya!  As mewsual, it is the beautifully rendered comic book with purrfect pony poses, expurressions, colors, style, tone and – and scenery, which are so faithful to the TV series, nya! Nyow I would like to discuss
 
My Little Pony: Friends Forever #24, nya!
 
Tara-chan:
In the purrevious issue Applejack and – and Fluttershy were the focus, and this issue stars Rarity and- and Gilda the Griffin, who wants to hire Rarity to design the new uniforms for the Griffin Kingdom’s Boffyball team, nya! Issue #24 is purriced at $3.99, with the uninterrupted 20 page tale followed by the 10 pages of the ads, bya. It was written by Georgia Bell, illustrated by Jay Fosgitt, colored by Heather Breckel, lettered by Neil and edited by Bobby,  with the regular cover by Amy Mebberson and – and the subscription cover by Jay, nya!
 
Rarity is not a fan of the sport, but she is excited about the oppurrtunity to design the garments which will be seen by fans all over the world, so she goes to Griffonstone to meet the team, nya! While most of those Griffin athletes are rather robust, a scrawny member named Firegem tries very hard but he lacks the strength and – and the agility, much to the stern Coach Klaus’s dissatisfaction, nya. While Gilda becomes the assistant coach, Firegem assists Rarity, who winds up with more than she bargained for as a substitute player on the team, nya!
 
They are very outmatched by the fierce Yaks team, but they have the very attractive Blue uniforms with the White trim, nya! I will not spoil the outcome of the exciting event, but it is the charming fun tale with the good message, nya! Also appurring in the tale are Lilac Links, a Boffyball fan pony who wants Rarity to spangle her jersey, nya! This was another beautifully great issue, and – and I will give both of those pony comic books an “A” as in Applebuck, nya! I am all done, so nyow here is onee-chan to continue our pony report with her review of
 
My Little Pony: Art is Magic, nya!
 
Yvonne:
Arigato, Tara-chan, nya! 2015 was the great year for the many pony items between the Sweet Apple Acres, Power Ponies and Equestria Girls toys, plus the pony cards, comics, storybooks, and the art books, nya! For our review of the My Little Pony: The Art of Equestria book, please see the November 2015 Mew, and for our review of the My Little Pony 2016 12-Month Wall Calendar, please see last month’s Mew, nya! While The Art of Equestria book purrrtains to the pony animated TV series imagery, Art is Magic is pertains to IDW’s pony comic books’ imagery, nya!
 
The full-color 12″ 8.5″ x 3/8″ trade papurrback published by IDW is priced $19.99 with 148 pages of the art and the purrocesses of Agnes Garbowska, Tony Fleecs, Brenda Hickey, Jay P. Fosgitt, Andy Price and Sara Richard, who have been the mane illustrators of IDW’s Pony comics for just over the past 3 years, nyr! I should also mention the comics’ lettering is by Neil Uyetaki and except fo Agnes’s art, most of it is colored by Heather Breckel, nya! On the book’s front cover is Andy’s detailed scene of the mane six ponies and Spike busy in the comics art studio, nya! 
 
The collection was designed by GIlberto Lazcano, edited by Justin Eisinger and Alonzo Simon, nya. There is a chapter for each artist, full of the sketches, inked line art, comics pages and cover art, including the many large pics, full page pics, two-page spurreads and intermew questions about their biography, artistic career, art techniques, how they became fans, their favorite characters and& stories, nya! I think it is a beautiful, informative book which I will give an “A” as in awesome art nya! That will conclude our pony reports, but another art book I wish to purraise is the
 
Record of Agarest War Heroine Visual Book, nya!
 
Yvonne:
Record of Agarest War is a series of role – playing video games of the epic fantasy genre full of the characters’ combat and relationships , nya! It is made in japan by Idea Factory, Red Entertainment and Compile Heart for the various platforms, nya! The USA version of the 8 1/4″ x 11 5/8″ video game art book is a trade papurrback purriced at $39.99, and has 160 full color pages plus the 15″ x 11 5/8″ double – sided fold out poster of Ellis the Pink – haired High Elf girl who appurrs at several ages in the multi – generational game, nya!
 
It was published in  the USA by Udon Entertainment in May 2015,  translated from Japanese into English by Jocelyn Allen, copy edited by Ash Paulson, with the layout and design adaptation by  Matt Moylan, nya! The book is lavishly full of illustrations and notes about over 50 characters, many  of them with 2 pages apiece, nya! There are many illustrations of the characters plus information about their purrsonality, clothes, abilities and their voice actors, nya! The illustrations are very intricate, ornate, expurressive and beautiful, nya!
 
The book also contains story plot details, including the scenes, continent maps, quotes and annotations, plus the many scenes of the characters and events, the extensive gallery of purrmotional and merchandise art, the theme song lyrics, thorough lists and charts of equipment, weapons, abilities, costs, tactics and affects, nya! I was very impurressed with this art book, which I will  an “A” as in Agarest, nya! That is all for my art book reports, but nyow I will turn The Mew over to Nya-sensei, who wants to tell us about the manga such as
 
Pandora in the Crimson Shell: Ghost Urn vol. 3, nya!
 
Nyanko:
This manga of the futuristic action / cyber / comedy was written by Masamune Shirow (Dominion Tank Police, Appleseed, Ghost in the Shell) and illustrated by Koushi Rikudou (Excel Saga), which was originally published as Koukaku No Pandora in Japan by Kadokawa, with the art, purrduction and compurrsition by Masahito Watari, Rin Hirotose and Rikudou, art assistance by Takepon G and Unamu Kibayashida, editing by Koichiro Ochiai, and design by Noriyuki Jinguji! Vol. 2 has chapters 5-9 of the Black & White manga, bonus notes and concept pages, and the 4 color pages!
 
The English version is published here by Seven Seas, translated by Jocelyne Allen, adapted by Ysabet Reinhardt Macfarlane, lettered by Roland Amago, laid out by Bambi Eloriaga-Amago, purroof read by Shanti Whitesides, edited by Adam Arnold with the purrduction management by Lissa Pattillo! The tale is set in the future at the Cennacle resort island, where a cheerful cyborg girl Nene met the tsundere cyborg girl Clarian, the widdle CPU Buer and minions who work for deceitful inventor Delilah alias Sahar, Nene’s decitful aunt Takumi, and the hapless journalist Vlind!
 
Nene has Light Brown hair with the cute ornaments and wants to befriend Clarion, who has Pink hair with the cute costume cat ears! Both girls are “full body cyborgs” in that except for their brains, their bodies are made of the artificial parts, including Clarian’s lower abs that contain the Pandora device interface which can upgrade Nene’s skill and ability purrograms! Nene altruistically wants to help friends and achieve world peace and happiness, but unfortunately rivals Takumi and Delilah wish to manipulate and exploit Nene, Clarion & Buer while causing much purropurrty damage!
 
Purreviously in volumes 1 and 2, Uzal’s dangerous huge drilling mech ran amok to cause catastrophic damage in an act labeled as terrorism, but Nene and Clarion stopped the mech and freed Buer from it, whilst the underpaid, genkijournalist Vlin was injured, hospitalized and dreams for the purrmotion. Delilah feigned death and laid low whilst the girls moved into the huge mansion of sneaky, reclusive Takumi, who keeps trying to examine them. In volume 3 the girls try to entertain and rescue people, going to work and school, but they are attacked by a bang of cyborg thieves!
 
While Vlind recovers and hopes for a better TV job, Nene and Clarion discover other poor kidnapped cyborgs who need to be rescued! The tale is rated for the teen readers due to the ample violent combat, wacky moments, potential romance, lovely fashions, occasional cyborg nudity and “fan service”. I think that the characters are cutely drawn amidst intricate mecha & architectural scenery! I hope that Nene, Clarion and other entities will become better friends with more respectful treatment, freedoms and self determination! For the next manga mewsing, here is sis to discuss
 
Akame Ga Kill vol. 5!
 
Nyoka:
Ariagto! Written by Takahiro and drawn by Tetsuya Tashiro, Akame Ga Kill purrtains to the Night Raid team of assassins who aid a rebellion against an oppurressive government that commits many atrocities. At this point, after several losses the team is compurrised of Akame with the demon sword, Mine the snipurr with the soul gun, Lubbuck with the deadly strings, Najenda the boss, Leone whos transforms into a fiece catgirl, Tatsumi with the stealthy armor, and in vol. 5 they are joined by the two new members, Susanoo with the mace and Chelsea the shape shifter!
 
They have legendary mystic weapons known as Teigu, but unfortunately some of their evil enemies are also thusly armed, and the team has suffered plenty casualties, recently including members Sheele and Bulat who were killed in the brutal duels with the sadistic General Esdeath’s elite death squad. Fortunately, Esdeth’s squad as also lost several members, but she has recruited a new Teigu – wielding team known as The Jaegers who are compurrised of Bols, Kurome, Run, Seryu, Wave and Dr. Stylish… and have discovered the Night Raid’s secret headquarters!
 
The manga was originally published in Japan in 2010 by Square Enix, and the English edition of the manga is published here in the USA by Yen Press. The tale is full of intense action & emotions, viscerally graphic scenes of combat and torture, harsh language and occasional nudity, so it is definitely not for widdle kitties or the squeamish readers. Vol. 5 is purriced at  $13.00 USA, $15.50 Canadian, and its 210 pages include manga chapters 20 –  23, bonus tales, sketches, notes and 9 pages of ads. Except for the covers & 2 color pages, the volume is Black & White.
 
Vol. 5 was translated by Christine Dashiell, lettered by Erin Hickman, and picks up right where vol. 4 left off as The Jaegers invade the Night Raid’s lair. The Jaegers are defeated and the survivors retreat, but the compurrmised Night Raid has to relocate farther away into the unexplored canyon wilderness. The region is populated by huge monsters which are extremely dangerous, but that also includes giant fish which are quite delicious thanks to Susanoo’s culinary expurrtise, and as the team settles into a new secret lair, we learn more about Susanoo and Chelsea.
 
Chelsea is very peppy, purrky, sneaky, and in one scene she transforms into the cute widdle Marg Panther Kitten to coax some food away from Mine! However, soon the tales return to the very dark tragic dispurrsition in the 24 page special arc tale of 3 poor country girls Luna, Fall and Air who travel to the empire’s capital city in hopes of employment, but they are exploited and horribly abused by a group of wealthy thugs. After brutally vile things are done to them, one girl survives long enough to escape and hire the Night Raid for vengeance. It is the extremely tough read. 
 
After that is the more amewsing 2 page bonus tale of Sakina the zombie who almost meets Tatsui & Mine. That was written by Takahiro, and drawn by Tashiro with Sakina by Hiragi. Well, I sure do hope that the Night Raid survives to slay the villains, lead the successful rebellion against the evil empire, and liberate the innocent victims! I am also the bit curious about the forthcoming purrequel manga Akame ga Kill! Zero! That is all for my manga mewsings, but we have the bit more to say about a certain member of the Night Raid as Petra purrsents this month’s
 
Celebrity Catgirl Spotlight!
 
Petra:
Arigato, nya! This month we shine the spotlight upon Leone, who was born in the slums and is popular with folks in her old neighborhood, but she is no friend of the oppurressive thugs, nya! She is an expurrt spy, brawler & masseuse, whose mystic weapon is a belt buckle named Lionel, which unleashes the spirit beast power to transform her into a catgirl, nya! She has Blonde hair, Gold eyes & fair skin in the Black tube-topped bikini with the cut-out pants, boots, gloves, belt & scarf, nya!
 
She is a light hearted, frisky, vivacious, carousing lass with the voluptuously tall, powerful body, nya!

In the catgirl form she has the cat eyes, ears, tail, fangs and large sharp claws, with great agility, strength, senses and recoupurrative power, nya! 
 
In the anime TV series adaptation which has been licensed in the US by Sentai Filmworks and shown on the Crunchyroll network, Leone is voiced by Yu Asakawa in the original Japanese version, and by Allison Keith in the English dubbed version, nya! For further information, in addition to that Akame ga Kill! wiki, I will suggest the Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akame_ga_Kill!, nya!

The Harpy is so lovely, happy and cute too, with the very purrcise lines, richly bold colors, subtle shading & shadows!

The Trek catgirl has the lovely mane, tail, stripes and physique, and I hope that 3-cup bras are not hard for her to find, nya!

Becca:
Mulch is so purretty in her ivy – trimmed moss bikini and I am so glad that she had the happy reunion amongst new friends!

Meanwhile across the island and the nearby undersea merfolk neighborhoods of Mew Hanover County, more families and friends are gathered to watch the ceremony at their homes  or at various venues after their suppurrs. As the afternoon wanes, solar – powered lights add illumination to the island, as angelic officer Mohini flies on her safety purrtrol.
