Unfortunately, while they may have the perfect partnership on the battlefield, things aren’t running so smoothly on the home front and when “the other woman” from Goh’s past suddenly returns, the rifts that are opened may be wide enough to put the entire defense of mankind in jeopardy! Can an international supporting cast of the wildest giant robot pilots ever hold the line until Goh and Anna can come together in the cockpit, join interlocking parts and create the perfect marriage of man, woman and machine?

SYNOPSIS: In a world eerily similar to our own, war between the Kingdom of Honneamise and its archrival, The Republic, seems inevitable. But even as the two nations’ rapidly evolving technology creates new ways to wage greater and more deadly forms of warfare, a small group seeks to use those same advances to propel mankind forward into the future and into space in their world’s first manned spaceflight program. For astronaut candidate Shirotsugh Lhadatt, it’s not just a journey beyond the reach of the atmosphere, but a personal odyssey as he grows from an aimless young man into a leader willing to put everything on the line in order to move the human race forward and away from the brink of Armageddon. Prepare to witness the legendary film that revolutionized the anime industry, launched the careers of dozens of today’s animation superstars and put Studio Gainax forever on the map as one of Japan’s premiere production houses. Staggering animation, brilliant storytelling and a scope that goes beyond epic combine to produce an emotional powerhouse that will send your spirit flying towards the stars with THE ROYAL SPACE FORCE: WINGS OF HONNEAMISE!

Dan’s big chance comes when he crashes a game of Bigfoot Basketball, which is played with giant robots, and accidentally revolutionizes the sport.

Of course, there are a few problems at first: besides being underage, Kana doesn’t even know how to ride a bike! So, it’s a good thing that her new co-workers are willing to help her out, even if most of them are more than a little eccentric. Between Saki, the group’s elementary school-age chief, sugar-obsessed Yume, her neurotic girlfriend Yuuki, tomboyish Hinata and lecherous Haruka, they’ll get Kana up, on her feet and delivering papers with a smile in KANAMEMO!

SYNOPSIS: Yoshitaka Nakabayashi may be young, rich and not unattractive, but as runaway sisters Izumi and Mitsuki Sawatari quickly discover upon becoming Yoshitaka’s new maids, he has some SERIOUS issues. Like his insistence on being called “Master”, and dressing the girls in costumes he creates himself. Unfortunately, Izumi’s personal net worth is in the negative digits, and with Mitsuki and her pet alligator to support, she’ll just have to grin and bear whatever comes out of Yoshitaka’s twisted closet! But the costumes are only the beginning, and when Anna, a third au pair with obsessive issues of her own, joins the party the situation will go from bad to perverse. The rules of dealing with domestic help have never been so completely abused as when the madmen at Gainax (Evangelion, FLCL) unleash their most demented series ever: HE IS MY MASTER!

Interesting. He Is My Master is getting a BD :thinking:

That’s probably on my eventually to get list…

Edit to that

Maybe Kanamemo too. It’s a comedy SOL, so that’s right up my alley.

So May’s SDBD of Godannar was a mistake . Does this mean the new one is actually HD ?

Not seeing much I really need out of these . Godannar I’ll get if it’s HD ,but guess I’ll wait to I see something else I need if it is . I’d get He is my Master ,but until they prove they can encode SD Blu-ray’s right not touching them from Sentai or any of its cousins .

So I’m hoping mat Right Stuf order will be upgraded automatically

I figure that the BD release in JP was an upscale. Nice to see they got it. Since I already have GoDannar on preorder from last month , Nothing for me this month. I’ll update the MIA list in a bit
