SYNOPSIS: The Heroine has no memory of who she is or where she was. Like a broken record skipping, she keeps waking up in the same place at the same time: in a hospital bed on August 1st. And then there’s the ghost-the spirit only she can see who calls himself Orion. He says not to trust anyone and to never reveal what she can’t remember. But… does that mean she shouldn’t trust him as well? So she runs through flaming buildings, struggles desperately not to drown, and continues to wake up in the same hospital bed. Again, and again, and again. Somehow, somewhere, there must be a clue to her identity in this moebius loop of existence. But how can you know what you’re looking for when you can’t even remember who you are? Welcome to the ultimate nightmare of AMNESIA.

SYNOPSIS: Asahigaoka is just about as small as a town can be, and living in a small village means approaching life a little differently. After moving from the biggest of big cities, Tokyo, Hotaru has fully adjusted to that lifestyle, and she’s learned to find and appreciate pleasures that she would never have noticed before. Like the beauty of nature even in the smallest things. Or the reliability of knowing everyone who works at the same stores that have been there forever. The new faces in town… WAIT! WHAT? NEW FACES??? Yes, shockingly, it’s true! But in the end, one thing remains most important: the fact that everything is still better when you experience it with friends you love and trust. Join Hotaru, Komari, Natsumi, Renge, and Suguru once more as they live life to the fullest in NON NON BIYORI NONSTOP!

But as Earth’s military begins to briefly breach the walls, one young man starts to realize that something is very wrong. That nothing is quite as it seems. And when he makes contact with a woman from outside, he learns that he, himself, is somehow at the center of the entire alien plan. A plan that will literally re-write reality itself. Prepare for an epic saga of love, war and time as the complete television series and feature film versions of the anime classic are unleashed in the ultimate collection of RAHXEPHON.

SYNOPSIS: What if the people of Japan never had to unify because mystical steam-powered robots defended the island from outside attack instead? That’s the history Keiichiro Tokugawa grew up in, but the brash teen has the reckless ambition of helping unite the feuding feudal factions… and with some headstrong heroics and the help of the legendary giant robot Susanoo, he just might be able to do it! However, he’ll have to deal with his girl problems first: the Susanoo requires a co-pilot-a female co-pilot-but every time Keiichiro gets close to a member of the opposite sex, he breaks out in a rash! Can Keiichiro find a nice young lady he’s compatible with? Or will his feminine issues thrash, crash and forever trash his hopes of ending the futile feudal feuding forever? The answers await in DAI SHOGUN!

Well, Mineru is actually a college student, but she has a proposition for him… not THAT kind of proposition since Koushi’s still a middle schooler… although one might wonder considering how many half-clad beauties he encounters upon entering the so called “Goddess’ Dormitory.” This is where the local college houses the girls who are too eccentric or unruly to fit in anywhere else, and they desperately need someone to maintain order and keep watch over them. Can Koushi possibly fit in as their “Dorm Mother”? He’ll have to learn on the job as the MOTHER OF THE GODDESS’ DORMITORY!

Alone and far from home, Thorfinn joins the forces of his father’s slayer, determined to compel a duel with the mercenary leader and avenge his father. However, Thorfinn quickly finds himself ill prepared for a soldier’s life in the long war between Denmark and England…where the opportunistic Vikings earn coin by fighting for both sides. Now he must learn how to fight and survive, even if it means facing friend and clan in battle in VINLAND SAGA!

Dia Shogun with a new English dub!

WOO…H…ow, wait.
No dub.
Never mind.

Vinland Saga should have come with a fabric map poster instead.
That way I can plan my Viking excursions with my minis.
