Had fun at the chatroom. We watched Toriko movie and Street Fighter live episodes. I'll be back for spam bot patrol. I got to pick some stuff for tomorrow's job at the restaurant.

Welcome! This week has a large selection. I'm interested in Kill la Kill, but I have to wait until they have the complete collection. They're selling about 4 episodes a piece. Fairy Tail dub got to the Key of the Starry Sky arc. I'm curious to hear Michelle Lobster's dub voice.

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.

Notes

  • Distributor: Aniplex of America

Jintan, Menma, Anaru, Yukiatsu, Tsuruko, and Poppo - six grade-school students who were the best of friends. As the "Super Peace Busters," they always played together at their "secret base" until Menma died in a tragic accident. Five years later, Menma appeared before Jintan, now a high school freshman. No one could see her but Jintan, and Menma told him that she wanted the Super Peace Busters to grant her a certain wish. But not even Menma herself remembered what that wish was. Having been traumatized by Menma's death, the five had drifted apart, but after giving vent to their bottled-up feelings in an emotionally-charged moment, they gradually went back to being the "gang" of years past. And then Menma said goodbye, leaving letters to everyone of the Super Peace Busters. One year later - once again, they gather at their secret base, each of them with a letter to Menma in hand.

This special collector's edition includes a compilation music CD (including the theme song "Circle Game" by Galileo Galilei), a memorial postcard set, a double-sided Menma poster, and a deluxe booklet, all housed in an artbox illustrated by character designer Masayoshi Tanaka!

To Love-Ru Darkness (Blu-Ray or DVD)
  • Distributor: Sentai Filmworks

As close encounters of the twisted kind between the residents of the planet Deviluke (represented primarily by the female members of the royal family) and the inhabitants of Earth (represented mainly by one very exhausted Rito Yuuki) continue to escalate, the situation spirals even further out of control. When junior princesses Nana and Momo transferred into Earth School where big sister Lala can (theoretically) keep an eye on them, things SHOULD be smooth sailing. But when Momo decides she'd like to "supplement" Rito's relationship with Lala with a little "sisterly love," you know Lala's not going to waste any time splitting harems. Unfortunately, it's just about that point that Yami, the Golden Darkness, enters the scene with all the subtleness of a supernova, along with an army of possessed high school students! All of which is certain to make Rito's life suck more than a black hole at the family picnic. Unless, of course, a certain semi-demonic princess can apply a little of her Devilukean Whoop Ass to exactly that portion of certain other heavenly bodies!
