Welcome everyone to the first week of August 2014's DVD/Blu-Ray releases! We have a large selection this week. After finishing Inuyasha marathon via HULU (see New Summer 2014 Marathon: Sailor Moon, Inuyasha, and Arrow (HULU)) last Monday, I think I want to do a marathon on Cardcaptor Sakura because I never finished the series. Plus, Kids WB censor the series just like any other anime series. Oreimo 2 was a good anime series. The true ending was very controversial. The limited edition has the OVAs and an awesome package with plenty of goodies. I love the series, but the ending made me cringe a bit. I can't spoil folks who haven't try the show yet. That's all of the series I'm familiar with. Short Peace is on my watch list after being hooked on its trailer.
I would love to hear your recommendations on these series. All comments are welcome. Thank you.

Eager to follow in the footsteps of his fallen sister, Kazuya enrolls at West Genetics Academy, a training facility for buxom heroes known as Pandoras. These courageous schoolgirls are genetically enhanced with enough sex appeal to cripple a man – and the superhuman strength to slaughter aliens by the dozen. Kazuya's role is that of Limiter, a Pandora's battle partner, and he quickly sets his sights on the most feared beauty in school, Satellizer el Bridget. This full-figured annihilator of aliens is as desirable as she is deadly, but rubbing her the wrong way could lead to gross bodily harm.
Can Kazuya forge a bond with his new partner and rise to the top of the ranks at West Genetics? Or will he fall victim to the mysterious bloodlust lurking within Satellizer?
|Love Lab - Complete Collection|
It would have been bad enough if Natsuo only wanted advice, but Fujisaki Girls Academy's most brilliant student is also the most obsessive, and simply talking about the opposite sex isn't sufficient. No, Natsuo postulates hypothetical scenarios and "researches" them in her secret Love Lab! And since interaction with boys is banned at Fujisaki, guess who has to help act those fantasies out? As other girls join the Love Lab, Riko's role as the group's love-master becomes even worse - because she ISN'T one! Most boys don't even LIKE her, but how can she admit that without destroying the friendships she now cherishes?

|Yuyushiki - Complete Collection (Sub. Blu-Ray)|
Okay, so maybe it's not the club itself, but the three girls you're most likely to find there. And maybe they do spend more time chatting about their social lives and debating things like the virtues of ketchup versus mayonnaise than they do learning about the ins and outs of a keyboard, but whatever they're up to, it's sure to put a smile on your face.
So come learn what the mysterious YuiYukari Formula is all about and join serious Yui, hyperactive Yuzuko and lovable but not quite in touch with reality Yukari as they experience life's ups, downs, surprises, and occasionally, the internet!
A lone traveler is confronted by unusual spirits in an abandoned shrine in the 2013 Academy Award nominated Possessions (Tsukumo), directed by Shuhei Morita (Coicent, Kakurenbo). A mysterious white bear defends the royal family from the predations of a red demon in the brutal Gambo, directed by Hiroaki Ando (Five Numbers!) from Redline's Katsuhito Ishii's original story with character designs by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (Neon Genesis Evangelion).
The focus shifts from supernatural to science fiction for the action-packed A Farewell To Weapons (Buki Yo Saraba), as Mobile Suit Gundam designer Hajime Katoki helms Otomo's tour-de-force saga of men battling robotic tanks in apocalyptic Tokyo, while grandmaster Otomo himself assumes the directorial reigns for a spectacular tale of love, honor and firefighting in ancient Japan with the multi-award winning Combustible (Hi-No-Youjin).
Prepare your senses for the animated films that are taking the critical world by storm as a new era in anime is ushered in with Katsuhiro Otomo's Short Peace!
