So now, Yuko has to defeat a local magical girl to win back some of her family’s vanquished power so they can afford to go to the all-you-can-eat pancake restaurant. And, of course, it turns out that the Magical Girl goes to Yuko’s school, but Momo’s really nice and keeps rescuing Yuko, which is pretty embarrassing and leaves Yuko rather conflicted… but… all you can eat pancakes?

Because while the six Sakamaki brothers might be very attractive, they’re also all vampires and Yui is the kind of girl they’ve been looking for. And if keeping one brood of nosferatu from draining her, emotionally and otherwise, wasn’t bad enough, there are even more sinister forces at work, and soon a second quartet of undead brothers, the Mukamis, arrive with plans to make Yui their permanent dinner guest!

It looks like joining her school’s yacht club is certainly about to pay off for Marika, because who wants to go into space piracy without a bunch of friends their own age to keep it fun? Toss in some outer space rivals, princesses in peril, and a pirate crew pulling double duty as high school teachers, and the next voyage of the good ship Benten Maru is going to be one of the wildest adventures ever!

Now amidst an uneasy peace, some humans are entering into pacts with the Z/X. For one young woman this is a simple choice: Azumi Kakamigahara can sign a pact with the beautiful Z/X known as Rigel, or succumb to the disease that has left her comatose for much of her life. What Azumi doesn’t expect is that it means moving to a new Academy where teams of young women and their Z/X partners are being secretly trained to face the next wave of hostile attackers… and no sooner have Azumi and her new friends arrived than the enemy launches its first attack on their school in Z/X CODE REUNION!

SYNOPSIS: Tanaka Nozomu isn’t exactly brilliant. But, given that her only goal for high school was to get a boyfriend, who else would fail to realize that attending an all-girls school was a bad idea? Well, there’s always the fallback plan of getting other girls to introduce her to boys they know. Too bad that Tanaka’s “bright” idea of giving her classmates nicknames based on less attractive character traits has caused her un-flattered friends “Robo” (for her apparent lack of emotions) and “Wota” (a reference to a creepy otaku types), as well as not-friends like “Loli” (who’s hypersensitive about her petite size,) to “reward” Tanaka with the special nickname of “Baka” (“idiot”), which is quickly adopted by the entire student body. Well, maybe the second week of school will be better in WASTEFUL DAYS OF HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS.

To atone, she has sworn to save 8 lives, no matter what the cost, and now only one life remains. Prince Chagum has been blessed with the power to stave off the droughts that threaten to starve and destroy his father’s empire, but he has been accused of being possessed by evil spirits, and court officials have set his own father against him. Condemned to death, he is saved by Balsa’s intervention and now, together, the two must unravel the secret of Chagum’s powers and the spirit behind them… before the armies sent to murder them can succeed! The best-selling novels from internationally acclaimed fantasy master Nahoko Uehashi are unleashed in the epic animated masterpiece MORIBITO ~ GUARDIAN OF THE SPIRIT!

Seriously, why isn’t Abyss of Hyperspace included in the Bodacious Space Pirates collection? Every rerelease has included movies with them (Tamako Market, NGNL Steelbook, Beyond the Boundary, etc.)

By the way, any chance that Sentai will go to 2 BD-50s and do a 6-7 episode / disc format?
