Welcome to the 2nd week of March's Blu-Ray and DVD releases! This week, I find a lot of familiar shows: Accel World, Psycho-Pass, Digimon, and Pet Girl of Sakurasou. I'm definitely looking forward to Pet Girl of Sakurasou and Psycho-Pass. Any fan of Gen Urobuchi or fans of Sci-Fi/Crime would love Psycho-Pass. It's a gritty, dark series with plenty of action and drama. It was a powerful show that makes you think about society and its justice system. For slice of fan and romance fans, you should check out Pet Girl of Sakurasou. It's a character driven show where you see these high school students in struggle for their dreams and finding love at the same time.

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.

Welcome to a world where just thinking about a crime is enough to enough to make you guilty. Bad intentions can no longer be hidden, and the police know exactly which tainted minds are about to cross over to the wrong side of the law. The great equalizer in the war on thugs is the Dominator, a futuristic weapon that can read minds and assess the risk that a citizen will turn criminal.

Cops work in teams made up of Enforcers and Inspectors. Enforcers take out the bad guys, Inspectors stop their partners from going rogue, and the all-powerful Sibyl System keeps a watchful eye on us all. Society is paralyzed by its deepest, darkest desires, and trial by jury has been replaced by the wrath of the Dominator. Welcome to the future. How guilty are you?

The care and feeding of a pet girl is something only those with the most dogged determination should attempt, but Sorata Kanda never really had a choice in the matter. Tasked with keeping the acclaimed but highly dysfunctional and unfocused artist Mashiro Shiina from forgetting to eat, brush her hair, or wear clothes, it's been a long, slow battle to get to the point where he's reached a general understanding of her extreme quirks. Which doesn't mean that Mashiro doesn't still walk out of the dorm half-naked. It's just that Sorata now understands that it's going to happen.

Unfortunately, the whys, wherefores, and how-tos of comprehending the opposite sex aren't going so well on other fronts. Misaki's attempts to escalate her campaign to win Jin's affections take a disastrous turn, and Nanami's going to have to learn to come to terms with her feelings for Sorata while adjusting to the third wheel that is Mashiro. And then there's still Sorata's "problem" of picking up cats that he's not supposed to keep.

Contains episodes 13-24. Special Features: Japanese CD Spots, Clean Opening Animation, Clean Closing Animation.
