SYNOPSIS: The Royal Knight Academy was established to train the heirs and scions of the lands how to fight using the ancient mechanical dragons known as Drag-Rides. Those noble intentions, however, go royally astray when Lux, deposed prince of the Arcadia Empire, accidentally stumbles upon the Kingdom of Atismata’s new Princess Lisesharte in her royal bath and sees altogether more than he should have. Challenged to a Drag-Ride duel when the Princess bares her anger, Lux finds himself thrust into a series of events that could ultimately expose the darkest secrets of both their royal families! Now, whether he wants to or not, Lux will be spending his time fighting monsters, corruption, and the attentions of his female classmates, both lethal and otherwise, in UNDEFEATED BAHAMUT CHRONICLE!

SRP: $69.98

SYNOPSIS: The acronym stands for Vertical One-man Tanks for Offense & ManeuverS, but don’t let the “Tank” part of the name VOTOMS fool you. Lightly armored, cheaply produced and powered by an explosive fuel mixture, these one-man power-suit systems are walking deathtraps, and only a fraction of the soldiers who dare to venture into combat inside one will survive their full deployment. But even in the human flesh grinder of the 100-year-old war between Gilgamesh and Balarant, there are a handful of pilots who are just too mean and stubborn to die… pilots like Chirico Cuvie. Get ready to penetrate the enemy front lines in the most realistic Giant Robot combat series ever created, and learn why the most dangerous part of a VOTOMS is the man inside it, in this spectacular ultimate collection of ARMORED TROOPER VOTOMS!

SYNOPSIS: There are several ways to score in rugby, but a “Try”, where a player touches the ball to the ground inside the opposing team’s goal area while remaining in contact with it, is the hardest. It’s also the way that earns the most points and sets up yet another way to score, a conversion. Riku Haruma, who played rugby when he was younger, has a conversion of his own when he sees the school’s struggling team practicing on field. Although he’s not big enough to keep up with powerful players like Akira Kariya, Riku has far more experience and, when a bit of offered advice causes an immediate improvement, Riku realizes that what the team really needs is leadership. Now, with Riku’s tactics and schooling to drive them forward, it’s time to make winners out of the TRY KNIGHTS!

Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 480 min.

SRP: $99.98

SYNOPSIS: They should never have met. They shouldn’t even exist. But when they come together, the entire world will change. The last surviving member of her clan, Mirai Kuriyama is cursed with the terrifying ability to control and manipulate blood, a power so heretical that she is shunned even by those with the ability to understand her “gift”. Akihito Kanbara is only half human, but while the monstrous other half of his lineage seems to have doomed him to a life alone, it has also given him near invulnerability in the form of rapid healing. Alone, their futures seem bleak, but when a chance encounter brings them together, it becomes clear that they share more than just an unexpected bond. Together they share a destiny and a mission that only the two of them together may be strong enough to survive. Beyond the world that we know, in a realm where nightmares are real and legends walk, their future awaits BEYOND THE BOUNDARY.

Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 60 min.

SYNOPSIS: All Misuzu Moritani has to do is think about it and, for three minutes, time seems to halt for everyone but herself. But three minutes isn’t long enough to go anywhere and come back, especially when you can only do it once a day. So, mostly Misuzu just amuses herself… until she makes the mistake of sneaking a peek up the skirt of a classmate she’s been crushing on and it turns out that Haruka Murakami is somehow immune to Misuzu’s powers! Oops. And now a really embarrassed Misuzu has to make it up to Haruka. Double oops. Even if it means getting into a “relationship”. Wait, what? With great powers come some really big apologies and maybe a new romance as two girls take a little time off from the world in FRAGTIME!

One thing leads to another and then, well, neither of them is a virgin anymore. Unfortunately, it wasn’t what they expected, but that’s fine. They’re just ships passing in the night and they’ll never have to see each other again, right? Except when Natsuo’s father announces that he’s getting married again, Natsuo discovers that he’s getting two new step-sisters as well. Now there’s a problem, because one is his teacher, Hina, and the other is Rui. Yep, the family dinners at Natsuo’s house are about to get REALLY awkward in DOMESTIC GIRLFRIEND!

Title: THE PET GIRL OF SAKURASOU

Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 600 min.
Street Date: 8/25/2020
Format: BD
Language: English & Japanese with English Subtitles
SRP: $89.98

SYNOPSIS: The first time he saw her, it was love at first sight. Unfortunately for Sorata Kanda, “she” was a cat named Hikari and his school’s rules forbid keeping pets in the regular dorms. As a result, Sorata is banished to the infamous Sakura Hall alongside other troublesome and unusual students like Jin, overzealous playboy, Ryunosuke, the reclusive hermit, and Mashiro, a brilliant artist who’s so unfocused and clueless about the real world that dorm supervisor Ms. Sengoku assigns Sorata the task of taking care of her along with his ever-growing collection of stray cats! Needless to say, Mashiro’s inability to understand the boundaries of propriety (or even when and how to dress herself) is certain to cause trouble and Sorata’s friend Nanami is especially unhappy to find herself suddenly competing for Sorata’s attention with THE PET GIRL OF SAKURASOU!

Pick this version up anyway as it has the superior cover and Disc art (IMO, since the disc art has Risa Taneda’s character on one of the discs, You can see the previous version further up in the Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle thread)
