DVD | Japanese Dub | $29.99

In a quest for revenge against Tri-Edge, Haseo has become a killer of Player Killers. Callous and dimissive as a consequence, he has become a shadow of his former self. Atoli wishes to alleviate some of this and makes it her mission to help him but it may be a difficult task when her face reminds him of a fallen friend.

While in no way being a full substitute to the video game trilogy released by CyberConnect2 on the Playstation 2. Unfortunately after the first four games in the .hack series were released, it was decided that the .hack//G.U. trilogy would not be released over here in Australia despite the .hack//Roots prequel series being licensed and published by Madman Entertainment. Many years after the video game releases – Aussies will finally get their first non-import means of appreciating the storyline.

In sixth grade Yuri just wants to end her last year in elementary school on a quiet note…not as a member of the ‘Alien Party’. 

The objective of the ‘Alien Party’ is to capture any rogue aliens that wonder on to the school premises. However to capture these aliens you need the help of one, called a “Borg”. A symbiotic life-form that offers the ability to protect, incapacitate and ultimately capture other aliens in compensation for being able to feed off their wastes by licking their back. 

For Yuri it’s her worst nightmare.

DVD | Japanese Dub | $44.99

The antics for the residents at Arakawa Under the Bridge continue in this hilarious sequel!

Just as Ko is settling on to the banks of Arakawa with his eccentric neighbours, he learns that he has barely scratched the surface! As now not only does he have to deal with his usual assortment of strange friends, but he’s also got an Amazonian woman with her tribe of demonic “female” followers breathing down his neck and a comic nerd who is the self-claimed head of the Earth Defense Force as well.

But that is the very least of Ko’s worries as Nino’s claim to being an alien may not be as absurd as previously thought. Ko is now faced with the very real possibility of either moving across the stars, quite literally, or risk losing her forever. 

New secrets and friends arise as Arakawa Under the Bridge truly becomes a place for the odd and eccentric to gather!
