SYNOPSIS: Studying at the Yamabuki Arts High School has been a dream-come-true for Yuno, and she’s learned so much already! Not just from her instructors, but from the friends and neighbors who’ve become her second family and made the Hidamari Apartments such a safe and nurturing home. But as the day of her “big sisters” Sae and Hiro’s graduation draws slowly closer, it’s time for Yuno to start seriously taking on the same role for Nazuna, Nori and the other budding young artists who’ve entered Hidamari’s protective cocoon. And it’s also time to tackle some really challenging artistic assignments. That doesn’t mean there won’t still be time for fun with Miyako and all the others, but it’s definitely time to pencil in her plans for the future. And sometimes that means putting the art before the course! Prepare to be drawn in once again as the magic that surrounds Hidamari continues in HIDAMARI SKETCH X HONEYCOMB - The COMPLETE COLLECTION!

SYNOPSIS: Naoya likes breasts. In fact, he’s so obsessed with them that he can recognize any breast from just a picture. But while that’s an impressive ability, who would expect some mysterious patrons to set up a game where Naoya has to locate five championship breasts from among all the girls in the city? Oh, and to have a lot of sex too. That’s exactly what happens when a girl named Nir shows up and gives Naoya the rules and a stack of free sex vouchers. That certainly doesn’t suck! Or, actually, with his free vouchers, that’s on the table too… With everyone from his teachers to the girl giving out free samples on the corner as possible “game pieces,” Naoya’s going to have a long, hard and very probing time ahead of him as he seeks to prove that he’s the KING OF BREASTS!

That’s why, when his dad suddenly announces that he’s shutting the restaurant down and sending Soma to cooking school, Soma is shocked. However, Tohtsuki Academy is no ordinary cooking school. This elite institution is filled with culinary giants like Erina “God Tongue” Nakiri, who does her best to keep a lowly short-order like Soma from even making it inside the door. However, if the snobs can dish it out, Soma can serve it up, and when he learns that only a handful of the students manage to graduate every year, he swears that the only way he’ll leave is as number one in FOOD WARS!

Fortunately, Sakura’s all-girl school just happens to have a motorcycle club! It only has one member though: the mysterious Raimu Kawasaki, who’s never been seen without her face-obscuring helmet. But that changes immediately once Sakura and the girl who passed her, Onsa Amano, sign up and start recruiting! It won’t all be easy riding… Sakura still has to earn her license, and there are problems like the club’s official status having slipped, and the need to recruit a faculty sponsor. But when the rubber hits the road, those are just little potholes as six student bikers take a ride on the wild side in BAKUON!!

But a chance encounter with Akihito Kanbara, whose own lineage is only partially human and allows him to heal from almost any injury, may have finally given her a chance at finding peace. When the cost of that path becomes apparent, will the two of them be willing to pay the price for a true happy ending? Even if it’s achieved, how long can it last in a world where Mirai’s mere existence is seen as a lethal threat? In two spectacular feature films, the world created in the hit series is taken to its epic, stunning conclusion: BEYOND THE BOUNDARY -I’LL BE HERE-: Past and BEYOND THE BOUNDARY -I’LL BE HERE-: Future!

However, Ushio quickly rethinks his position when he discovers a locked basement with an actual demon pinned to the wall by a spear! The tiger-striped demon threatens to eat Ushio if he doesn’t free him, so Ushio naturally chooses to ignore him. However, when the demon’s presence starts to attract others, Ushio is forced to remove the spear to save himself. To make a bad situation even worse, freeing the demon, Tora, also bonds Ushio to the cursed Beast Spear, sending him on a journey where unspeakable dangers await. The battle is only beginning for these unlikely partners in the all-new USHIO & TORA!

MIA Thread Updated:


#6

Links added to second post.


#7

Damn, have to wait another month for the one show I want… Unless they decided it was good enough to get a dub for some reason, then I wouldn’t mind waiting.


#8

Just May-July was how much I spent in the entirety of 2016 lol. This year has been freaking Brutal, (was just going to get DanMachi, and MonMusu for Premiums, but Gate’s and Chivalry’s were too good to pass up)


#9

I was never really interested in Food Wars, but the premium set is pretty sweet. Putting it all in a bento box with an apron and chop sticks is pure genius. I may have to pick that up. The Ushio and Tora set is pretty sweet too.


#10

so from this batch…

FOOD WARS! COMPLETE COLLECTION
USHIO & TORA COMPLETE COLLECTION

KING OF BREASTS BLU-RAY:wink:


#11

It’s BOTH Movies though, Past / Future


#12

Oh I wasn’t talking about the Beyond the Bounday 2 Movies which is actually a pretty good deal, rather I meant that this whole year is bound to be more expensive for me than last year was. @Snowy_Stampede , myself and a whole bunch of other fans are in the same boat.
