SYNOPSIS: They say that the bathroom is the most dangerous room in the house, but when a beautiful, naked alien princess teleports into Rito Yuki’s bathtub, it’s a definite case of rub-a-dub-DOOM! Having no idea that the planet Develuke even exists, Rito is completely unaware that touching a girl’s breasts there is how they propose marriage. Consequently, due to some slippery tile and some extra-prominent female appendages, Rito’s suddenly on his way to being a member of the royal family. Unfortunately, as hot as Lala is, this is one royal family no one wants to become a part of given that her father, King Develuke, bears a suspicious resemblance to the devil! And then there’s the little issue of the very nice human girl that Rito’s already interested in, who’s probably not going to be too understanding of his sudden involvement in intergalactic affairs. Will Rito become the next king of the galaxy? Will he learn the secret of the Big Bang? Find out in To Love Ru – The Complete Collection!

SYNOPSIS: There are twisted tales and twisted tales, but few are as twisted as poor Sado’s, who’s just realized that he LIKES being made miserable. Of course, knowing that only makes him more miserable, which in turn… Well, you get the idea. Desperate to break the circle, Sado volunteers for a special club where he hopes he can work through his issues; only to discover that the other members have equally… complex… issues to deal with. For example, the hyper-aggressive club president Isurugi not only has a violent fear of cats, but also believes herself to be a god! Then there’s Yuno, who’s terrified of men; the Nurse, who forces other people to perform cosplay; and Hayama, Sado’s best friend and a compulsive cross-dresser, who’s also the girl that Sado is infatuated with. (We did say it was complex, remember?) If you think you’ve seen EVERYTHING that can happen in an anime, prepare to have your eyes opened to FULL anime size as you enter a whole new paradigm with MM! (It’s pronounced “Emu Emu!”) The Complete Collection!

You see, there are SEVERAL girls who would all make wonderful partners for Junichi if he would only open his eyes. Are you ready for half-dozen or more romances, all at the same time? Neither is Junichi, so through the miracle of animation, you’re about to see how each of those individual romances would have played out if someone had done just the right thing at the right time.

Finally! Shame its like two days late to get them on sale. So it looks like I’ll be waiting to the next sale or if Amazon gets close to the sale prices.

Not really in a hurry to tell the truth.

I’d never pay more then $5.00 for Lady Death and that’s being generous.

MM and AMAGAMI SS I’ll get next sale

MARDOCK SCRAMBLE: THE FIRST COMPRESSION I am not sure if I am going to wait for the Blu-ray or just get the DVD then pick up the Blu-ray if I like it enough to upgrade.

Yeah usually that price is when the re-release has a new dub. Odd considering what you get from a certain other company for the same price you’d think they’d keep the $59.98 price. Maybe they think To Love Ru is going to sell better in complete form.
