About Now and Then Here and There:
Shu leads an ordinary life. At least he did until the day he meet LaLa-Ru, a girl with mystical colored eyes. Attracted by her silent mystery, Shu tries to coax the girl to talk with him, but just when he thinks he might be getting her to open up, they’re both attacked by men riding monstrous machines!
In the ensuing battle, Shu finds himself sucked into a time warp that drags him 5 billion years into the future - to a world that is more like a battlefield than a place to live.
About Grave of the Fireflies:
“Why do fireflies die so young?” Orphaned and homeless, two children set out to survive on their own in post-World War II Japan. But in the face of a society that is no longer able to help them, they begin to realize that they can never escape the hardships of war, or even find enough food to survive. Awarded First Prize as Best Animated Feature at the 1994 Chicago International Children’s Film Festival
About World of Narue:
Narue is an adorable schoolgirl with a secret. She’s really an alien with powers right out of a sci-fi comic! But growing up is never easy, and it doesn’t help when you’re from outer space.
About MD Geist:
Now, Geist is free. Jerra is a planet devastated by war. The cities lie in ruins and roving gangs of bandits wander the wastelands as the remaining Jerran forces battle the Nexrum invaders. But the war is about to end. Now, the military has less than twelve hours to deactivate a doomsday device before the “Death Force” is released - a horde of unstoppable robots that will eliminate all life on Jerra.
To prevent global Armageddon, a renegade soldier - Geist - must infiltrate the impregnable Brain Palace citadel, destroy the robotic sentries, and shut down the doomsday program! Now, Geist must decide: join forces with the army that exiled him to space - or stand back and allow his adopted home world to be destroyed![/quote]Those Who Hunt Elves DVD Complete Collection (Hyb) $39.98 Date Available - Jul 7 2009
