CANAAN Available on October 26th

HOUSTON, July 22, 2010 – Home video distributor Section23 Films today announced its October slate of releases, including CANAAN which will be released on DVD and Blu Ray, from Section23 client Sentai Filmworks.

Product details follow, in order of release
Coming October 2010

Title: KIMIKISS: PURE ROUGE COLLECTION 1

Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 325 min.

Format: DVD
Language: Japanese with English Subtitles
SRP: $49.98

SYNOPSIS: Kouichi always thought of Mao as his little sister, but when he wakes up from a dream and she walks into his house, he doesn’t even recognize her. Probably because, after living in France for several years, Mao is definitely not anyone’s little sister anymore! To further complicate things, Koichi’s mom has invited Mao to stay at their house while she attends the same high school as Kouichi and their mutual friend Kazuki. But given that Kouichi’s been trying to build a relationship with Yuumi, the revelation that he’s now sharing accommodations with a non-related girl is definitely going to cause some emotional waves. Or maybe a tsunami by the time Kazuki’s sister Nana, her best friend Narumi and all the other kids at school get overly involved. Young love and teenage angst are the rule as histrionics and history classes collide in the first spellbinding collection of KIMIKISS ~ PURE ROUGE!

SYNOPSIS: The rulers of the Empire of Valdana have repeatedly failed to capture Fan Hyurlick, but now they’ve succeeded in doing something far worse by striking down the ones closest to him. Unfortunately for the surviving members of the Tytania dynasty, by changing their greatest enemy from an interstellar fugitive into a man driven by anger and vengeance, all they’ve really accomplished is to sign their own death warrants! And if that wasn’t enough trouble, the internal divisions among the Empire are coming apart at the seams and suddenly none of the Landless Lords are safe from a knife in the back! The body count will climb as brother turns on brother and one man’s fight for justice becomes a vendetta! The creative team behind the legendary MACROSS unleashes an epic struggle for the future of mankind in the climatic second collection of TYTANIA!

Deciding to side with the beautiful girl instead, the revived Demon Lord joins forces with her potentially legendary brother Arthur, and begins to assemble a mighty force that may just bring the Divine Empire its knees!

Tears to Tiara is a definite for me. I stopped watching the sub so that I could watch the dub when it was released. I can’t wait. I was really digging this series.
Canaan may be a pick up for me as well. It sounds interesting, and I will have to look into it a little more. I just watched the 1st episode of Tytania. This is looking pretty good as well. Kimikiss, on the other hand, I don’t know anything about. It doesn’t sound like my type of anime, but you never know.

I am still watching the sub of Tears To Tiara and love it but want to see how it ends. Tytania I haven’t seen yet and it’s going to be on vod next month.

#10

Holy crap Canaan. Awesome pick up. I never thought S23 would be able to get their hands on it. Unfortunately I probably will not have money at the time to buy it right away - maybe after Christmas if I get some money.

LOVE AND PEACE!!!

After Siren announced they had picked it up and it would likely have a dub, I was hoping Sentai had grabbed Canaan. I figured that if someone else had it, they would have likely announced it by now. A dub and bluray is a definite buy for me.

Until Ghost Hound got announced on bluray, I thought Tears To Tiara on BD was just a pipe dream, but I’m glad I was wrong. I will definitely be grabbing that, as well as Tytania Part 2.

Kimikiss is a maybe, as I really know nothing about it.

That intro somewhat turns you off initially. If it comes over here, I’ll have to give it a shot.

Decided to start making these a sticky during the release month so people know what is coming out that month.
