###Time Jam: Valerian & Laureline Complete Collection
The first rule of time travel is to never change anything. Otherwise, the resulting “butterfly effects” can ripple through time and wreak untold havoc on the unwritten future. But on his last test as a Space Time Agent, Valerian messes up. Not only does he save someone who would have been killed, but he’d have died himself if she hadn’t rescued him! As a result, nothing in the future is where he left it, including the Earth! Now he and Laureline, his accidental passenger from 10th century France, have to put the universe back in order without writing themselves out of existence! Across a million worlds and an infinite number of possibilities, it’s the ultimate adventure in time and space as the multi-verse from the groundbreaking graphic novels by Pierre Christin and THE FIFTH ELEMENT designer Jean-Claude Mézières becomes the stage for TIME JAM: VALERIAN & LAURELINE!

Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls Premium Box Set

No one expected the government to suddenly acknowledge the existence of demi-human species like harpies and centaurs, but when a careless Integration Agent shows up on Kimihito Kurusu’s doorstep with an attractive Lamia in tow, he suddenly finds himself designated as a “Host Family”. This might not be so bad, except that while Miia’s top half is all girl and quickly develops a crush on her new human host, her snakelike bottom half makes that crush literal with a tendency to squeeze the life out of him! Plus, there’s also the little problem that it’s illegal for humans and non-humans to have THOSE kinds of relationships. With woman-in-black Agent Smith always sniffing about for improprieties, things only get more hectic in the Kurusu household when bird-brained Papi the harpy and master-seeking centaur Centorea need places to roost and stable. As the house gets crowded with even more captivating cuties, can any human male survive under such tempestuous and tempting conditions? Find out in the UNCENSORED release of MONSTER MUSUME: EVERYDAY LIFE WITH MONSTER GIRLS!

RIN-NE 2 Complete Collection

Black cats might be bad luck, but did you ever think that the cat might have a reason for causing trouble? Rinne Rokudo quickly finds out that it’s more than possible, especially when the “cat” is the mostly humanoid Oboro who’s stuck in a contract with spoiled Shinigami Ageha… so now Rinne’s derelict house is suddenly filled with snake spirits! That’s just the slinky start of the latest set of missions for perennially broke half-human, half-Shinigami exorcist Rinne; his contracted black cat/demon Rokumon; and Rinne’s human classmate, partner in paranormal activities, and possible paramour Sakura “I see dead people” Mamiya. From ghostly class reunions to a flu so bad that you get it AFTER you die, the only thing you can be sure to expect is the unexpected in the second season of Rumiko Takahashi’s RIN-NE!

Q. How would you feel about giving an anime a theatrical screening in 3D?

A. It would be interesting, but half of the time, you need 3D materials.

According to anime, there are certain events that should happen to all good MCs during their summer episode. Thanks to our super-accurate birthday chart…

…you can get a picture of what might happen during your summer festival episode… but what ELSE should you expect during your anime summer?

Your Anime Summer Episode 101: What to Expect

A Summer Festival (Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun)


Air out the yukata, friends, because it’s time for a summer festival! You know the kind: filled with yummy food stalls, games, secret crushes, failed confessions… wait what?

A Pool Scene (Sakura Trick)


…or two anime pool scenes if you’re lucky. Summer is hot, so of course one of the best ways is to cool off poolside in a bikini with your friends. Floaty is optional.

Anime Beach Scene (Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya 2wei! Herz!)


An alternative to the pool scene is the beach episode! Summer in anime means trips to the beach to play in the ocean and possibly catch a glimpse of your crush in their swimming attire.

Boredom (Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto)


It’s summer, and school is out! You should, ideally, have some moments to yourself in your anime summer episode. Feel free to lounge about out of your school uniform and explore something interesting. A hole to the other side of the world, maybe, if you’re feeling ambitious.

Test of Courage/Kimodemshi (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU)


A common summer anime trope and a plot device to bring two characters together, a test of courage is the perfect way to literally take a character out of their comfort zone. If you’re lucky, you get to be the scarer instead of the scare-ee!

Summer Romance… Maybe… Not (Food Wars!)


Without school, you have more chances to “run into” your crush in public. Take advantage of the summer and see if an anime summer romance may bloom for you. Maybe they’ll even call YOU out of the blue!

Fireworks (One Week Friends)


Get some fireworks and set them off with good friends, or a crush. Fireworks can be the super romantic backdrop to all the summer drama happening down below.

Summer Lovin’, Happened so Faaaast

What else should happen to you in a typical summer anime episode? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr! Don’t forget to @sentaifilmworks so we can see it!

You can get any of these titles at our Sentai shop or stream them on!

Studying at the Yamabuki Arts High School has been a dream-come-true for Yuno, and she’s learned so much already! Not just from her instructors, but from the friends and neighbors who’ve become her second family and made the Hidamari Apartments such a safe and nurturing home. But as the day of her “big sisters” Sae and Hiro’s graduation draws slowly closer, it’s time for Yuno to start seriously taking on the same role for Nazuna, Nori and the other budding young artists who’ve entered Hidamari’s protective cocoon. And it’s also time to tackle some really challenging artistic assignments. That doesn’t mean there won’t still be time for fun with Miyako and all the others, but it’s definitely time to pencil in her plans for the future. And sometimes that means putting the art before the course! Prepare to be drawn in once again as the magic that surrounds Hidamari continues in HIDAMARI SKETCH X HONEYCOMB – The COMPLETE COLLECTION!

Don’t let these cute anime girls fool you. They all could kill you without hesitation. The only question is… would they? If they did, would they still look cute doing it? Important questions.


Rory Mercury (GATE)


A cute anime girl who loves to kill for the god, Emloy. She was even introduced in a blood shedding way. Hopefully, our introductions would be much nicer.

Squid Girl (Squid Girl)


She’s super cute, but your death won’t come on purpose. You’ll die because her tentacles are able to bring down walls, strangle, and possibly drown. Your death would be ruled as an accident by her… tentacles.

Tsukuyo Inaba (Armed Girl’s Machiavellism)


Blind, unassuming, and cute as a bunny, but don’t underestimate her speed and heightened sense of hearing as she is a master swordswoman. She could slice us up before we even realized what happened.

Ange (Princess Principal)


Spy? Princess? Well whichever she is, she is not afraid to get her hands dirty. From high stakes espionage, to pulling the trigger herself, she is a force to be reckoned with.

Mine (Akame Ga Kill)


This cute anime girl may be small in stature, but you don’t mess with her. Quick to anger and armed with her massive gun (ironically named “Pumpkin”), she can decimate anything in her path.

Dangerous Lolis Abound!
