Welcome to the first week of June's DVD and Blu-Ray releases! For this week, I'm interested the Attack on Titan limited edition, Henneko, and Amnesia Blu-Ray releases. I'm a big fan of Attack on Titan, but not so much for Henneko and Amnesia. Amnesia is a boring reverse harem show until you reached a particular route where it made it memorable for reverse harem shows. Henneko is a cute, generic harem show, but it has an amusing gimmick, the characters make a wish and give something away in exchange involuntarily. That what makes it an enjoyable show. Attack on Titan is one of the hyped up series with visceral action and animation.

I would love to hear your recommendations on these series. All comments are welcome. Thank you.

Disclaimer: I'm just promoting the official release and the publishers. I'm not selling you anything. This is to combat piracy and get fans to support the official release. All summaries are from ANN.

Koto is a complete and total pervert, but he doesn't think that's a problem. What bothers him is that every time he tries to bluff his way through one of his indiscretions, his inability to drop his emotionless facade inevitably digs him in even deeper. Tsukiko also has an issue and wants to get rid of her childish habit of blurting out whatever she happens to be thinking.

When they learn about a statue of a cat that can take away a single personality trait that you want to get rid of, they're both eager to try it out. However, what neither of them realizes until it's too late is that the cat doesn't just take the personality trait away from you, it gives it to somebody else! Now Koto can't keep himself from saying exactly what's on his mind, while Tsukiko has picked up a complete inability to display emotion! Could the solution be finding the original owners of all the assorted problems and arranging an un-swap? And if it is, just how are they going to find everyone?
