Since the city of Orario doesn’t have a theme park, the next choice for Bell, Hestia, Lilly and the gang would seem to be a trip to the hot springs… and, conveniently enough, a battle with some hellhounds has led them to an undiscovered underground oasis! However, there’s something fishy about these springs, beyond the fact that Hermes happens to have bathing suits for all the ladies in their correct sizes! Will the secret be discovered before it’s too late? Will Hestia finally come clean with Bell? It’ll all come out in the wash when our heroes learn the answer to: IS IT WRONG TO EXPECT A HOT SPRING IN A DUNGEON?!!

SYNOPSIS: The sleeves of Coco’s penguin coat are sewn together to look like flippers, so it might seem a bit awkward to wear. However, Coco’s father gave the coat to her before he disappeared, so she wears it every time she goes out exploring. What Coco doesn’t know is that the Goblins have a legend about a brave flightless bird and when Coco unexpectedly ends up in their realm, they all think that Coco is the Penguin who can save them from the evil Emperor of Darkness! But how can a 6-year-old girl stop an army of demons? Coco doesn’t know, but together with her new friends Chaley the Goblin and Zammie the fallen Angel, she’s certainly going to try in YONA YONA PENGUIN!

SYNOPSIS: If you’ve got a ghost in your Japanese neighborhood, the spirit-moving specialists to call are Rinne Rokudo and Sakura Mamiya. Sure, they’re both still in high school, but Sakura’s been seeing the dearly and not-so-dearly departed since she was a child, and Rinne’s part shinigami, which comes in handy when dealing with the more assertive supernatural incursions. What Rinne isn’t good at is working his way out of a perpetual state of debt, and the need for quick cash can lead them onto unhallowed grounds where other exorcists fear to tread. Cleaning the Wheel of Reincarnation? Repossessing magical artifacts? What about REALLY dangerous tasks like trying to train a cat? It’s all just another paranormal day’s work in Rumiko Takahashi’s RIN-NE - SEASON 3!

Title: SWORD ORATORIA
Published by: Sentai Filmworks
Distributed by: Section23 Films

SRP: $69.98, $59.98, $129.98

SYNOPSIS: Contrary to what the adventures of Bell and the Goddess Hestia might imply, not everyone goes into the dungeon of Orario to pick up girls. The veterans of the Goddess Loki’s Familia have lots of reasons for risking life and limb facing the monsters and mayhem lurking within the deadly labyrinth’s multiple levels, but new member and mage Lefiya just wants to prove that she’s worthy to be on the same team as her hero, the famed sword princess Aiz Wallenstein. As for Aiz herself, she’s seeking something that no one else even suspects, and she may find it when trouble comes after her from the previously unreached 59th level! If you thought you knew the Danmachi universe, be prepared to think again as the adventure continues from an all-new point of view in SWORD ORATORIA!
