Welcome to this week's DVD and Blu-Ray releases. For this week, it's a small selection. Out of the three, I did watched Sasami-San and Naruto Shippuden. For Sasami-San, it's a strange show. I can't really explain it well. If you're going to watch it, be prepared for some incestuous moments and bizarre, confusing story. I thinkour Anime Vice's expert can fill you in. For Naruto Shippuden, it's the sequel to Naruto, and for many young folks, this is a popular Shonen anime that served as a gateway drug to anime besides Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z. The series isn't for everyone if you are not a Shonen fan because the series has a lot of pacing issues.
I would love to hear your recommendations on these series. All comments are welcome. Thank you.

DVD and Blu Ray Releases
|Flowers of Evil - Complete Collection (Blu-Ray or DVD)|
Blackmailed into a "contract" under the threat of having his guilt revealed to his entire class, the former bookworm who could spend hours reading Beaudelaire's "The Flowers of Evil" now finds himself entwined in Nakamura's growing fantasies as she leads him down the garden path to damnation. As their blossoming relationship becomes ever darker, even the seemingly innocent Nanako is pulled into the nightmare.
Just what are Nakumura's ultimate plans, and will the increasingly trapped Takao really be willing to carry them out? What you sow, you must ultimately reap, and there's certain to be a harrowing harvest ahead!
|Naruto Shippuden (DVD box19)|
To reach optimum power, Naruto must learn to control the beast within him, so he seeks help from the one person who has mastered just that, Killer Bee! But the Jinchuriki of Eight Tails wants nothing to do with training Naruto!
With the help of her "Brother Surveillance Tool," Sasami is able to view the outside world via her computer, theoretically allowing her to readjust to interacting with people once more. In reality, it reveals her brother's interactions with the three very odd Yagami sisters, whose looks and motives are deceiving, and have various types of interest in Kamiomi. That's when things start to get really weird...
Magical powers? Everything turning into chocolate? Has life via the web warped Sasami's brain, or is it the universe that's going crazy? It looks like Sasami will have to take off her pajamas and go out into the real world to set things straight!
