SYNOPSIS: Mikoto Urabe might be an anti-social loner who sleeps on her desk, carries scissors in her underwear, and laughs insanely for no apparent reason, but when Akira Tsubaki comes into contact with her saliva, he finds himself inexplicably addicted to her. And if that’s not an unusual enough basis for a relationship, what’s even weirder is that not only does Urabe seem to find this twisted state of affairs to be completely normal, but she already appears to have plans for her new friend! But can a girl having great expectorations for you be a good thing? Find out as Urabe puts a spittle love in Tsubaki’s heart and things get REALLY bizarre as “sharing spit with a girl” takes on an entirely new meaning in the most dysfunctional bodily functional anime ever: MYSTERIOUS GIRLFRIEND X!

Now the Neighbors are still here, lurking, while young Osamu Mikumo, one of the BDA’s latest Trigger trainees, is under orders to not use his new abilities…. orders that Osamu violates when he sees a new classmate being dragged into a Forbidden Area! Instead of staging a rescue, however, Osamu is stunned to see the boy defeat the Neighbors by himself!

Needless to say, having Lala’s sisters, Nana and Momo, transfer to Earth is a recipe for disaster, especially after Momo decides that the way to horn in on Rito’s relationship with Lala is to bring in even more girls! And, of course, this is the point when galactic scourge Yami, the Golden Darkness, decides to pop by with an army of possessed high school students! Now it’s no longer a question of whether Rito will last to the end of the week, but whether Earth itself will survive the ultimate romantic cataclysm in TO LOVE RU - DARKNESS!

Then, when the once-noble Queen Claudette’s ways seem to have turned to oppression and persecution, a new generation of warriors must take up their naked blades! Baring their fury in open rebellion, an unprecedented force of femme fatales come together with the goal of stripping the evil queen from her throne! If a heart of gold lurks in the breast of the noblest warriors, prepare to bear witness to a treasure trove of improbable magnitude in the QUEEN’S BLADE - REBEL WARRIORS COLLECTION!

Then, just when it seems that Dororo’s luck has run out, he’s rescued from a man-eating ghoul by a mysterious young man wearing a doll-like mask and artificial limbs that conceal deadly blades! Born without arms, legs, sight, hearing and even skin after his father crafted a monstrous deal with the forces of darkness, Hyakkimaru now somehow seeks out the demons who cursed him, regaining one of his lost attributes for each monster slain. With deadly secrets from his own past to protect, the young thief joins into an alliance with the impossible warrior, setting forth on a quest to restore Hyakkimaru’s stolen humanity and rid Japan of devils in DORORO!

Format: BD
Language: English & Japanese with English Subtitles

SYNOPSIS: Infernal Weapons grant their wielders incredible power, but as each blade and hammer hosts an evil spirit, contracting their services requires a price few are willing to pay. Even the few who can master a demonic weapon without becoming its slave, the Chrysalis, are destined to slowly lose their humanity, transforming into beings of pure violence known as Busoma. For years, the secretive Shoshidai have sought to gather all such devices and hide them away, but not even they can always resist the temptation to take the weapons for themselves. What chance, then, does young Gai Ogata stand after his dying mother, possessed by the sword, Shiryu, leaves it for his infant hands? And when his own arm is destroyed and replaced with one made from that same sword, all hell will be unleashed in SWORDGAI!

Just a note, that about 10ish episodes of World Trigger S1 didn’t get dubbed for some reason, CR never gave a decent explanation as to why

And that pretty much guarantees that S2 of Darkness is getting dubbed.

As for me maybe are Dororo and Darkness

That’s also the last CR announced title that Sentai is publishing

That would be episodes 49-63

These for pre-order ASAP :
To Love Ru Darkness
Dororo

Already on order Assassins Pride steel used it for my free during the last Target sale .

Probably end up with all ,but SwordGai eventually . Though if I need something during a sale to use as filler .

Mysterious Girlfriend X should be a better release then the original . I think that would have been during DLW’s encoding days plus smaller easier to read subs and probably sub corrections if there needs to be any . .
