FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


SECTION23 FILMS ANNOUNCES SEPTEMBER SLATE

The Return of Godzilla® Available September 13th


HOUSTON, May 19, 2016 – Home video distributor Section23 Films today announced its September slate of releases; including the first U.S. release of the complete and uncut THE RETURN OF GODZILLA® (aka GODZILLA™ (1984)) by Kraken Releasing. Available on DVD and Blu-ray.


Product details follow, in order of release

Coming September 2016


Title: HANAUKYO MAID TEAM: LA VERITE COMPLETE COLLECTION

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

SYNOPSIS: Moving is seldom easy, but when newly orphaned Taro Hanaukyo arrives in Tokyo to live with his wealthy grandfather, what he finds literally blows his mind. Because Gramps has skipped off to a remote island, leaving his estate and its huge staff at Taro’s beck and call. A staff that seems to consist entirely of maids: maids in charge of cooking, maids in charge of cleaning, maids in charge of computer programming, maids in charge of technological research and development, and, of course, maids in charge of making the garden grow. Except that Taro doesn’t just have pretty maids all in a row; he’s got them in regiments and battalions! What was his grandfather thinking? And what will Taro do with them? Did we mention that he’s a middle school student with otaku tendencies? Head maid Mariel and her staff may be in for a rough period of adjustment as the new master of the house takes charge in HANAUKYO MAID TEAM: LA VERITE!

SRP: $59.98, $49.98

SYNOPSIS: Sakura Mamiya’s life was odd long before she started helping her fellow student and half-Shinigami Rinne Rokudo assist lost souls in reaching the land of the dead. However, as strange as the various spooks, specters and other other-worldly entities that Sakura has encountered on a daily basis may have been, nothing is as out and out bizarre as finding herself and Rinne involved in a complicated web of perceived romantic relationships that also include a former childhood friend and now frustrated exorcist, Tsubasa Jumonji, and the air-headed and extremely gullible Shinigami Ageha. After all, Sakura’s not really sure she’s even attracted to Rinne! On the other hand, given the dangers inherent in foiling the efforts of the soul-stealing Damashigani, worrying about anyone’s love life is going to have to take second place to avoiding becoming part of the afterlife herself. It’s a second round of second thoughts and second chances in the second stunning collection of RIN-NE!

Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 650 min.

Akira is a world-class chef, Suoh is a world-class martial artist and Nokoru is so brilliant that he stands out at their exclusive academy for conspicuous overachievers, CLAMP School! Not to mention, all three are smart, conscientious and attractive! However, since they haven’t reached seventh grade and aren’t ready to date yet, Nokoru has come up with a different way to ingratiate the trio with the feminine gender: forming a detective team that specializes in helping ladies in distress! Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Nokoru can detect girls in trouble from a mile away, while Suoh comes from a family of Ninjas and Akira has inherited a similarly useful set of skills from his father, an infamous thief! Recess is on and the mystery is afoot as the famed all-female creative team CLAMP unleashes the sleuthing prowess of the CLAMP SCHOOL DETECTIVES!

SYNOPSIS: Haruka and Yuu have been best friends forever and they’ve sat next to each other in class since junior high. But, on the first day of high school, the new seating plan has them separated! So, since everyone knows that long distance relationships don’t work unless the parties involved put extra effort into it, they decide they need to do something special to permanently seal their friendship. However, deciding to kiss each other awakens a whole new level of feelings, and it doesn’t help that some of their classmates seem to be “involved” in similar circumstances. What’s a girl to do when her best friend suddenly seems more like a girlfriend? It’s a life lesson that the school curriculum isn’t normally prepared to teach, but our two young heroines are about to get a private education you’ll never forget! Discover the truth about the birds and the... er… birds, as two young ladies learn to deal with the pros and cons of intramural osculation in SAKURA TRICK!

SRP: $14.98, $9.98

SYNOPSIS: With a higher budget and more advanced special effects than any previous film in the series, THE RETURN OF GODZILLA® returns Japan’s greatest monster to his intended role as an epic force of destruction and the film’s spectacular success re-launched the Godzilla® franchise after nearly a decade in suspended animation. Unfortunately for North American audiences, this direct sequel to the original 1954 feature film has previously only been available in a highly edited version that cut over twenty minutes of original footage and effects, changed key plot points and altered the dark dramatic tone and narrative by inserting additional scenes and humor in an attempt to “Americanize” the film. But now, at long last, the acclaimed kaiju masterpiece finally hits American shores in all its uncut original glory! Get ready for the biggest Godzilla® epic that you’ve never seen as Kraken Releasing proudly presents the complete and unedited THE RETURN OF GODZILLA®!

Like Alice through the looking glass, Yuko discovers that the digitally augmented world on the other side of her glasses is far more complex and confusing than she could have imagined. With shocking e-spaces filled with mysterious un-erased levels of data, and virtual creatures that act and think as if they’re truly alive, how many other secrets might these parallel worlds hide? Who is responsible for hiding them? As new memories from her past begin to surface, she must now confront whether the e-spaces themselves are somehow affecting the real world and how this involves the “other” Yuko. Their destinies may be intrinsically linked as the real and virtual worlds collide in the climactic conclusion of DEN-NOH COIL!

In his darkest hour, Jun Sakurada receives just such an opportunity: a chance to communicate with a future version of himself who did not wind the key and bring forth the Rozen Maidens, and to fix his own shattered world. For Jun-who-did-not-wind, the messages from his younger self are a beacon of hope, and when the adult Jun discovers a box with parts and building instructions for a familiar red dressed doll, the goal becomes clear: to revive Shinku in his world and save both worlds from succumbing to the evils of Kirakisho, the seventh Rozen Maiden. The Alice Game becomes a war of dimensions as two worlds hang by the threads of fate in ROZEN MAIDEN: ZURÜCKSPULEN!

Even as Chaika struggles to learn the new magical skills required to defeat Claudia, a startling new revelation comes to light which may change their mission entirely: not all of Gaz’s magic research was destroyed, and information regarding the creation of the Chaikas may have been taken to a mysterious island! With the possibility of uncovering the secrets behind their mysterious origins dangled in front of them, the Chaikas must decide whether or not they want to find the hidden island and brave its unknown perils. Could the entire thing be a trap? It’s highly likely, but how can they resist the bait as the spellbinding adventure continues in CHAIKA THE COFFIN PRINCESS – AVENGING BATTLE!

Otherwise, as a group of Japanese teens quickly learn to their horror, the simple ritual may open a doorway to an otherworldly dimension where the infamous Heavenly Host High still exists, and the demonic occupants within seek to redecorate the gore-soaked and carnage-strewn halls with a new set of bloody corpses. Now, it’s a brutal education in supernatural survival as the students fight both the resident spirits and each other, where the odds of graduating alive, let alone in one piece, are sliced shorter and shorter with every heart-pounding second. Japan’s ultra-violent videogame and anime phenomenon becomes a shocking live action feature film as hell is unleashed at the CORPSE PARTY!

However, Yuji’s saga continues as his past catches up with him, and he is defended by the most unlikely guardian angels in THE EDEN OF GRISAIA. Follow the grisly journey as the boy is forced to become a man, and delve into the aftermath of THE FRUIT OF GRISAIA in this special complete edition that contains both parts of the untold story: THE LABYRINTH OF GRISAIA and THE EDEN OF GRISAIA.

Re: Upcoming U.S. Anime Releases - 2016 Edition

Crap I just made two Funi orders worth $315.78, now with Sentai's update when their sale comes it would be $221. At least most of them are pre-orders.

I am glad I held off buying Sakura Trick, but I still have to rebuy RailWars blu-ray.

Update on availability of Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Collector's Editions
Posted by on 19/05/2016

Hi everyone, today I'm here with very good (and very important) news, so please accept my apologies for the formal tone of this blog post.

So the big announcement many of you have been waiting for - we have been able to produce 10,000 more copies of the Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Collector's Edition (UCE) which will be sold worldwide! This brings the total up to 40,000 copies of the UCE.

http://eu.square-enix.com/sites/defa...dd908a74fe.jpg

We have only been able to produce 10,000 more UCEs due to the time it takes to create each individual Noctis Play Arts Kai figure because they are so detailed, and to confirm, this is the final batch of UCEs we will produce.

We cannot guarantee that this new batch of 10,000 UCEs will arrive on time for the launch of Final Fantasy XV on 30th of September 2016. But rest assured we are trying our absolute hardest to get them to fans in time. We will of course provide updates on this closer to the time of release as we know how important it is for you guys to have the game as early as possible.

If you're reading this post then you're going to want to know exactly how to get yourself a copy! I have four different sets of instructions depending on where you're ordering from.
  • For our fans in North and South America: The newly produced copies of the UCE will be distributed to fans based upon their order within our waiting list. Successful fans will receive an e-mail containing a private link to purchase a UCE, this link will only be valid for 48 hours.These e-mails will be sent out on May 23rd at 9AM PDT. If we do not receive your order during this period, the UCE will go on sale to the next person on the waiting list.
  • For our fans in France: The newly produced copies of the UCE will be distributed to fans based upon their order within our waiting list. Successful fans will receive an e-mail containing a private link to purchase a UCE, this link will only be valid for 48 hours. If we do not receive your order during this period, the UCE will go on sale to the next person on the waiting list.
  • For fans in the EU (excluding France): Our new batch of UCEs will go on sale on Monday 23rd May at 10AM BST on our EU store and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Purchases will be limited to one per person.
  • For fans in Australia and New Zealand: There will be more UCEs made available for our fans here, more details to follow.
Thanks for reading. We're aware that the demand for this UCE is extremely high and we're trying everything we can to get the limited quantity available to our fans in time for the worldwide release of Final Fantasy XV on 30th September 2016.

Re: Upcoming U.S. Anime Releases - 2016 Edition

Considering how terrible Sailor Moon and Death Note upscaled Blu-rays were... I have no hope for the Bleach upscales. Viz just does shitty Q-TEC upscaling which basically warpsharps the heck out of the video and makes lines look funky.

Re: Upcoming U.S. Anime Releases - 2016 Edition

http://www.funimation.com/blog/2016/...n-july-31-2016

Fullmetal Alchemist is one of the most popular anime of all time. Following the beloved Elric brothers, Edward and Alphonse, it is the story of loss, redemption, and understanding one’s own humanity. Unfortunately the emotional roller coaster we experienced while watching Fullmetal Alchemist is coming to an end.

We are announcing that on July 31st, Fullmetal Alchemist will expire and rights will revert to the original Japanese license holder. On this date, this title will be removed from our streaming service, FunimationNow, and we will not be reprinting any more home video product.

Fullmetal Alchemist: expires July 31, 2016 So what does this mean for you?

1) You have exactly 2 months to enjoy all 2 seasons of Fullmetal Alchemist on FunimationNow
2) Be sure to buy your copies on home video now before they’re gone for good! Out-of-print anime can go up in price significantly on the secondary market, with some titles going up to hundreds or even thousands of dollars! So lock in your collection at their current retail prices now. - See more at: http://www.funimation.com/blog/2016/05/30/a-fullmetal-

Re: Upcoming U.S. Anime Releases - 2016 Edition

http://www.funimation.com/blog/2016/...ory-of-oneword | password: snowwhite

Haruhi is returning, with a special 10 year anniversary release!

One of the most popular and influential anime of the last decade, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, is coming back to home video. After being out of print for years, we’re bringing it back in time for its 10th anniversary, along with a special collector’s edition. You can pre-order on June 15, and here’s what you can look forward to:
  • The complete series (seasons 1+2 together) is on Blu-ray for the first time in North America, presented in the same rebroadcast order used on the Japanese Blu-ray release. A DVD release will also be available.
  • We’ll also be including a guide in the release of how to watch the entire two-season series in various other orders, including the super-popular broadcast order, chronological order, and DVD order!
  • The release will have many of the extras originally included Bandai release — as well as some that have never been seen in North America!

For ultimate fans, we’re also releasing a special The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya – Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray set!
  • This features not only the original two season series, but the chibi spinoffs The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya + Nyoron! Churuya-san AND the new Nagato-centric alternate universe spinoff, The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan – all in a premium set with a collector’s chipboard box plus a filler box with art cards!
  • The filler box happens to be about the same size as a Blu-ray case and can be removed to fit something else…

The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya is based on the hilarious spinoff chibi manga with all the characters a little more exaggerated than before—and a Haruhi-chan that’s more Haruhi than Haruhi. Nyoron! Churuya-san is based on a popular webcomic-turned-meme full of deadpan humor centered around a smoked cheese-loving version of Tsuruya. These are also available together as a standalone DVD release on the same day at the series, but the Ultimate Collector’s Edition is the only way to get them on Blu-ray along with the art cards!

The spinoff series, The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan, follows the characters in the universe featured in the film The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya and will be available as a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack separately as well!

Pre-order now to take home ALL of these releases on 9/13!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


SECTION23 FILMS ANNOUNCES OCTOBER SLATE

My Love Story Available October 25th


HOUSTON, June 23, 2016 – Home video distributor Section23 Films today announced its October slate of releases; including Sentai Filmworks’ romantic comedy My Love Story!! Available on DVD and Blu-ray.


Product details follow, in order of release

Coming October 2016


Title: RE-KAN! COMPLETE COLLECTION
Published by: Sentai Filmworks
Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 325 min.
Street Date: 10/4/2016
Format: BD, DVD
Language: Japanese with English Subtitles
SRP: $59.98, $49.98

SYNOPSIS: Narumi Inoue has a problem with the new girl in school. It's not that Hibiki Amami is impolite or a bully… it's just that she sees, speaks with, and befriends ghosts! Now, it's at the point that when Amami's around, Inoue sometimes sees them too, spelling disaster for a girl who's terrified of anything supernatural. However, Amami's genuine kindness makes it hard for Inoue to ignore her, especially when her friends Kyoko, Kana, and Makoto, as well as the other students, have accepted Amami's habit of talking to thin air and walking around invisible obstacles. With gentle coaxing (and the knowledge that her departed grandmother is watching over her), Inoue finds herself immersed in Amami's strange, otherworldly adventures. Fulfilling the last wishes of the dead might not be a normal after-school activity, but at least they'll always know why the ghost crossed to the other side in RE-KAN!


Title: HAKUOKI ~ DEMON OF THE FLEETING BLOSSOM SEASON 1 COLLECTION BLU-RAY
Published by: Sentai Filmworks
Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 300 min.
Street Date: 10/11/2016
Format: BD
Language: English & Japanese with English Subtitles

SYNOPSIS: Chizuru Yukimura's father has created a magical elixir that increases the user's strength, speed and ability to heal. However, now he's disappeared, and the quest to find him will lead Chizuru on a deadly journey to strife-torn Kyoto, where the forces of the Shinsengumi and the vampire-like Furies are engaged in a brutal shadow war. It's a perilous quest, and disguising herself as a man will hardly be sufficient protection against the many dangers ahead. Fortunately, Chizuru is no ordinary girl, and her fate is about to become inextricably intertwined with the destinies of Shinsengumi Vice commander Toshizo Hijikata and his elite force of swordsmen. Swords clash and nightmarish creatures rule the night when historical fact and supernatural fiction combine in the epic series Hakuoki!

Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 300 min.
Street Date: 10/11/2016
Format: BD, DVD
Language: Japanese with English Subtitles
SRP: $59.98, $49.98

SYNOPSIS: When Subaru goes to her local observatory to prepare for an upcoming meteor shower, she ends up seeing far more of the stars than she expected. Instead of a simulated viewing of astronomical phenomena, she gets recruited to take part in a fantastic adventure with a mysterious young man, a bizarre alien creature, and a group of girls dressed in cute, magical garb. Together with the other girls (who are suddenly and strangely members of Subaru's school), Subaru becomes part of a clandestine effort to retrieve fragments of an alien spaceship! However, the fragments are being scattered all over the universe. Time is limited, and the girls face a nemesis who is seeking to gather all the parts for himself! The space race is on, and the sky is no longer the limit as the legendary animation studio GAINAX sets Subaru's eyes on the stars in WISH UPON THE PLEIADES!

Street Date: 10/18/2016
Format: BD, DVD
Language: Japanese with English Subtitles
SRP: $79.98, $69.98

SYNOPSIS: There may be stronger and more ruthless guns for hire in the universe, but when it comes to sneakiness, nobody out-sneaks the space soldier of fortune known as Cobra. Who else would change his face and wipe his own memories to hide from former adversaries, then replace his arm with the ultimate holdout weapon? Whether he's running from mechanical pterodactyls or trying to rescue a friend in need, Cobra never forgets the most important thing: scoring with pretty girls. Even though foiling the Pirate Guild, surviving avalanches, swimming with humanhead sharks and fighting the crystalline killer Crystal Boy are all likely to take a few years off his life, one can't argue with the fact that these missions tend to involve damsels in distress in various stages of undress! Get ready to blast off, rip-off, and face-off as the action explodes in COBRA THE ANIMATION!


Title: HELLO!! KINMOZA! COMPLETE COLLECTION
Published by: Sentai Filmworks
Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 300 min.
Street Date: 10/18/2016
Format: BD, DVD
Language: Japanese with English Subtitles
SRP: $59.98, $49.98

SYNOPSIS: Although learning different languages continues to be an interest for Shinobu and her friends, the new school year brings unexpected difficulties. Not only is there always something new and different to distract them from their studies, but Alice and Yoko also are having trouble adjusting to being in a different class from Shinobu and Aya. Meanwhile, Karen isn't getting along at all with her new homeroom teacher, and it doesn't help that the teacher is having trouble figuring out how to make herself seem friendlier to her students as well. Craziness may ensue, but sometimes, all it takes is the right mutual experience to bring everyone together. While some of those experiences may not be as well-thought-out as others (like when Alice and Aya act like juvenile delinquents to seem more grown up), the gang's new adventures are certain to warm everyone's heart as the fun and friendships keep growing in HELLO!! KINMOZA!


Title: MY TEEN ROMANTIC COMEDY SNAFU TOO! COMPLETE COLLECTION
Published by: Sentai Filmworks
Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 325 min.
Street Date: 10/18/2016
Format: BD, DVD
Language: Japanese with English Subtitles
SRP: $59.98, $49.98

SYNOPSIS: The stampede of recent events may have herded the awkward members of the Service Club into something closer to a real bonding, but the upcoming field trip to Kyoto threatens to reverse those tiny steps forward. Alongside a list of attractions to see, they'll also be taking along a lot of emotional baggage, and helping others with their personal and romantic issues may just cause the entire luggage rack to collapse. Between Hachiman's growing realization of how much he can manipulate others, Yukino's underlying battles with responsibility, and Yui's shifting needs and insecurities, the tenuous thread that holds their relationship together is more fragile than ever. Even as the path ahead is strewn with psychological traps, the feelings that each of them refuse to acknowledge may end up being the true pitfall in MY TEEN ROMANTIC COMEDY SNAFU TOO!


Title: MY LOVE STORY!! COLLECTION 1

Run Time: 300 min.
Street Date: 10/25/2016
Format: BD, DVD

SYNOPSIS: Takeo Goda's hulking physique and affinity for sports make him popular with other guys, but girls just find him intimidating. Unaware of his gentle nature, the girls that Takeo likes always seem to fall for his handsome best friend, Makoto, instead. Takeo is resigned to being Makoto's wingman, with no hard feelings between them, until Takeo rescues Rinko Yamato from a molester on the train. Unfortunately, while Rinko might see past Takeo's brutish appearance, Takeo's become so conditioned to girls preferring Makoto that he assumes Rinko is the same! Being the good, genuine guy he is, he's going to do everything he can to help the two of them be happy. Will Takeo let himself believe someone likes him? Love isn't blind: it's just a little dense in MY LOVE STORY!!


Title: THE PERFECT INSIDER COMPLETE COLLECTION
Published by: Sentai Filmworks

Street Date: 10/25/2016
Format: BD, DVD
Language: Japanese with English Subtitles
SRP: $59.98, $49.98

SYNOPSIS: For most people, finding a dead body on their vacation would mean the vacation is over. However, for Souhei Saikawa, a professor of architecture, and his student Moe Nishinosono, a math prodigy, it's a different kind of challenge. Genius programmer Shiki Magata, one of Souhei's idols, is inexplicably murdered inside the sealed research lab she disappeared to after being found innocent of her parents' murder. As Souhei and Moe take the first steps into a deadly new world, they must untangle the complex web of events and clues leading up to the murder. With danger creeping up around them, this may be the last mystery this pair of human anomalies attempts to solve in THE PERFECT INSIDER!

Funimation October 2016 Solicitations Preview

Note: see individual blog post links for cover art + packaging.

http://www.funimation.com/blog/2016/...-to-home-video
Quote:
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion and Code Geass R2 are returning to home video, with their first release on Blu-ray in North America, on October 4, 2016! Pre-orders will go up on funimation.com in just under 2 weeks on July 15.

Back for the series’ 10th anniversary, both seasons of Code Geass will feature a brand-new Japanese 5.1 surround sound audio mix used on the recent Japanese Blu-ray box sets—an entirely new viewing experience from previous releases. This isn’t just the original stereo audio re-mastered: the music and sound effects have actually been painstakingly re-recorded, all under the quality supervision of director Goro Taniguchi himself, to really immerse you in all the action and drama. We’re ecstatic to bring you this special new version, in addition to the original Japanese stereo audio and the original English dub.

Both seasons will be available in a 10th anniversary Collector’s Edition set that features a handsome chipboard box accentuated with metallic inks. Inside, the set will include 16 gorgeous art cards featuring illustrations from the world-renown manga artists, CLAMP, who created the character designs for the series. These frame-worthy cards include a beautiful pearlescent finish that enhances each unique illustration. This art was previously featured in a Japan-only art book.

The release also comes with hours of extras, including Japanese voice actor commentary and English voice actor interviews, plus picture dramas.

Each season will also be available separately on a standard edition Blu-ray or standard edition DVD.

Look out for the pre-orders to go live on July 15!

The Escaflowne TV series collector’s edition, standard editions, and movie will all hit shelves on October 18, 2016! All releases with have both the new 2016 English dub and the original broadcast English dub, as well as Japanese audio. You’ll be able to pre-order on July 15.

As you may recall from our Kickstarter campaign earlier this year, the series is set for a home video release this fall that features brand new HD materials of the series, plus several new director’s cut scenes never before seen in North America, from the Japanese Blu-ray release. Because the new scenes have never been dubbed in English, we had the rather unprecedented idea of using Kickstarter to ask you, the fans, if there was an interest in a new dub to match the complete materials. With the success of the Kickstarter, the new release will have the new 2016 English dub set to the director’s cut HD materials. In addition, we have upgraded all of the sets to include the original dub set to broadcast materials as well.

The collector’s edition features both the complete series plus the movie, a 40 page hardcover artbook that includes artwork from original releases as well as gorgeous brand new watercolor and painterly illustration from character designer Nobuteru Yuki, a replica of Hitomi’s pendant, and a beautiful chipboard box that also features an illustration from the character designer. You’ll notice that with this release, the “front” of the box is actually the back, mirroring the exact way this wonderful piece of art was used on the original Japanese release, for maximum authenticity.

The Vision of Escaflowne also features several on-disc extras, including the Club Escaflowne series of features with the original creators and Japanese voice actors! More details on the full list of extras will be available soon.

Standard edition Blu-ray/DVD combo packs are also available for Parts 1 and 2 of the TV series, as well as the movie.

In addition to these, Kickstarter backers were able to pledge to receive a special version of Collector’s Edition with specialty print on the box and a set of Hitomi’s tarot cards, an item that hasn’t been available in North America for years. This is not available for pre-order on July 15 as it’s exclusive to Kickstarter backers, but here’s a glimpse at what those tarot cards will look like:

Additionally, backers who pledge for Part 1 of the TV series also will receive a special exclusive box to house both parts. You can see a preview of that box as well below:

Look out for all of these releases on October 18, and pre-order on Funimation.com starting July 15!
