Magical Warfare Complete Collection

Takeshi Nanase’s life hasn’t been great since the accident that crippled his little brother, who blames Nanase for both that and stealing the girl he loved, while his parents have completely distanced themselves. Since Kurumi, his childhood friend, is not even really his girlfriend, the only thing that Takeshi has left is studying the art of Kendo. Until, that is, he discovers an unconscious girl in a strange uniform and suddenly finds himself in the business of rescuing damsels in distress, facing off against a group of magic users, and ends up with magical powers himself! Which, considering that he had no idea magic was even real, is quite a change in perspective. Unfortunately, all this means is that Takeshi now has a target on his back, and he’s going to have to learn the basics really quickly if he expects to survive MAGICAL WARFARE!

Seitokai Yakuindomo The Movie 2

Being an anime fan is rather like an obsession and true otaku will go to extreme lengths to support their favorite sagas. SEITOKAI YAKUINDOMO fans are no exception, and here’s the payoff: another ridiculous story of the former all-girl’s school where seemingly all of the ladies have sex on the mind constantly… or at least talk that way… while poor Takatoshi dutifully labors on as the male focus of the rest of the student council’s hyper-focused attentions. From appearing in questionably-intended student films to taking some very hands-on wrestling lessons, no good deed will ever come without pun-ishment when it’s constantly innuendo and out the other in SEITOKAI YAKUINDOMO THE MOVIE 2!

For the more difficult cases, she carries a weapon. It’s not an easy job, but Watashi must succeed.

The stage emulates life and compresses it, setting free skills learned over lifetimes in brief but dazzling displays for the amusement and judgment of others.

Karen and Hikari’s destinies have been linked since a childhood promise, but their journeys here have taken very different paths. Now, after Hikari leaves, Karen must discover who she is without her opposite, while Hikari must rediscover her own course. Nor are they the only girls who must reassess and change if they want to achieve their dreams, as the dance, magic, and swordplay continue in REVUE STARLIGHT: THE MOVIE!

Now that her host family’s daughter is coming to study in Japan, Shinobu is right to worry about whether Alice will fit in well with her Japanese friends Yoko and Aya. As it turns out, though, that’s the least of Shinobu’s problems, as the arrival of an old rival, who’s half-English and half-Japanese, throws everything into chaos! With Karen and Alice both making landfall at the same time, will the relationships that were shared in another language continue?
