When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace: Complete Collection (2014/Sentai Blu-ray Set)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: C Episodes: A-

The Senko High Literature Club isn't quiet your normal club, secretly they are people who are gifted with supernatural abilities. However, instead than taking over the world (or saving it), they would rather have fun with their 'powers'. Ando-kun is the only male member and surrounded by 4 superpowered girls. And while his power is still in question, he tends to turn everything into his personal fantasy world, but soon he and the girls will discover there is much more to their powers than they could realize in When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace: Complete Collection (2014).

There is no question that Ando, Tomoyo, Hatoko, Chifuyu and Sayumi have supernatural powers, but each day the girls must put up with Ando's various 'club activities' and his various fantasies. Tomoyo has the ability to manipulate time. Hatoko can control all the elements. Chifuyu can create worlds/dimensions and bend space. Sayumi can return anything to it's former state. Ando's power is a mysterious/useless dark flame and while Ando acts foolish and acts like a 'chuunibyou' (a person who lives in his own fantasy world and pretends to be a hero/heroine), he probably cares most about the girls and the care of their powers. And while the girls would never admit it, they all care for Ando more than would ever admit. They soon find out they aren't the only ones with power, can their peaceful/fun days really last?

The was a funny, comical, adventurous anime. It explores what would a group of students do if they had 'powers'. While most of the time they make silly/fun uses of their powers the series also questions what happens if people abused their 'powers'.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image and DTS-HD Master Audio (MA) Korean lossless 2.0 Stereo mix (with Pro Logic-like surrounds if you want to try therm out) impresses through all the episodes, presenting some really strong performance. Extras include clean opening and closing animations and trailers.
