Eureka Seven - Part 1 (Blu-Ray)
  • Suggested retail price: $44.98

For Renton, every day's the same. Nothing happens, nothing changes. He goes to school, he goes home. The only thing that keeps him happy is lifting on his ref board. Then one day, a giant mecha called an LFO comes crashing down on him - literally. Inside is the most beautiful girl he has ever seen!

The thing is, the girl is on the run from the military with her stolen mecha, and she's brought trouble with her. Renton will have to summon up all his courage to face his childhood hero; get the girl he's hopelessly smitten with to like him; and - oh yeah - live up to the legacy of his father who saved the world. But hey, at least it's not boring anymore.

As if receiving enigmatic messages delivered by the cats wasn't odd enough,​ Riki Naoe's world continues to grow even stranger.​ Following the shocking twin revelations of Midori's missing shadow and the fact that he's the only one who seems to remember Mio,​ he's determined to learn the nature of the connection between them.​

Meanwhile,​ some of the secrets Haruka is keeping about her family are revealed with potentially devastating consequences and Riki finds himself pressed into a completely unexpected situation when a sleepover held by Rin and the other female members of the team goes out of control.​ As overwhelming as all that seems,​ however,​ it's merely the preamble to the drama that's unleashed when Kudrayaka learns that her cosmonaut mother is going to be sent into space! And in-between it all,​ the Little Buster's first ballgame is approaching,​ even though they still haven't found a ninth player!

You didn't think Yuno's story was over, did you? Of course it isn't, but if you've seen the first series of Hidamari Sketch, you should know not to expect the "A happens after B after C" pattern of the rest of the world. In fact, instead of just taking place after Yuno's first year at Yamabuki High, X365 continues the saga on both sides, around, and in-between, filling in the details in an ever-expanding collage that's both avant-garde and slice of life! And if the format's not completely unexpected, we guarantee that some of the things that you never knew about before will be!

Contains episodes 1-14 and bonus episodes 1-2.

  • Suggested retail price: $64.98
This story is about an incident that happened before Bakemonogatari.

On his way to the bookstore, Koyomi Araragi encounters Tsubasa Hanekawa whose face is covered with a bandage. The incident allows Koyomi to learn what has been happening in the Hanekawa household, but Tsubasa begs him not to tell anyone about it, saying she'll do anything to keep him quiet.

Without revealing her family's circumstances, Koyomi tells of the day's incident - he and Tsubasa buried a "cat" that had been hit by a car - to Meme Oshino. Meme tells Koyomi that he must immediately go to confirm Hanekawa's safety. He heads to her house, only to find...

So begins the nightmarish nine days of Golden Week.
