Outburst Dreamer Boys

Release: 1 December 2020
Format: Blu-ray
Price: $59.98
Audio: Japanese with English Subtitles
Runtime: 300 Minutes

When Mizuki Hijiri transfers to Minikami Private High, all she wants is to blend in and study like a nice normal girl. Instead, the members of the school’s “Hero Club” immediately become fixated on Mizuki, and “normal” is the last word that anyone would use to describe these delusional chunibyo, all of whom are living in fantasy worlds in which they’re legendary heroes from comics and mythology! Just dealing with the scheming and manipulative Rei Tsukumo, and Tomoki Takashima, who’s only interested in 2D girls, will be difficult enough, but how can Mizuki convince Sentai-wannabe Yamato Noda that she’s NOT the Pink Ranger to his Red? Toss in Kazuhiro Nakamura, who believes he’s the reincarnation of a half angel/half devil and yet another member waiting in the wings, and it looks like poor Mizuki’s in for a truly epic education with the OUTBURST DREAMER BOYS!

The meteor strikes wiped human civilization from the face of the Earth, then even the face itself changed, transformed into something alien and hostile as devastating climatic shifts, global darkness and unprecedented geologic upheavals reshaped what was once our world. But, even in the aftermath of mass extinctions and world sweeping firestorms, life managed to find a way, evolving to new forms, some close to what came before, others from beyond our worst nightmares. It is into this toxic landscape filled with flesh-eating cockroaches, telepathic wolves, and man-eating plants that humanity’s last survivors are released from frozen cryogenic slumber. Five groups; each consisting of seven youths and one adult survival specialist. They are mankind’s last hope, and if they fail to survive in this strange and horrifying new world, the human race will end forever in 7 SEEDS.

Garden of Words

Some people revel and play in the rain; others dread it and hide at the first drop. For high school student Takao, a summer shower is a source of artistic inspiration… but when he skips school in order to sketch in a rainy garden, Takao finds an even greater muse in Yukino, an older woman who seems adrift in the world. Despite the difference in their ages and lives, they strike up a comfortable relationship that slowly evolves as they randomly meet in the same garden whenever it rains. But with the rainy season coming to a close, Takao wonders if there’s enough time left to put his feelings into actions and words. What will happen between a young man and a woman when the rain falls once again in THE GARDEN OF WORDS?

When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace

Release: 8 December 2020
Format: Blu-ray
Price: $49.98
Audio: English and Japanese
Runtime: 300 Minutes

The origin of the Senko High School Literature Club’s powers might be a little sketchy, and they may spend more time chatting than engaging in superhuman feats. Still, there’s no questioning the incredible abilities of the club’s female members: Tomoyo can control time; Hatoko is a mistress of the elements; Chifuyu can create matter; and Sayumi can return any item to a previous state. With these powers, there are few tasks these girls can’t handle. Meanwhile, Jurai, the club’s only male member, has a dark flame that seems a little pointless in comparison, and only time will tell if it matures into anything more useful. Toss in a Student Council president who’s developed powers of her own and things are about to get seriously weird as the study of literature takes a comic book turn in WHEN SUPERNATURAL BATTLES BECAME COMMONPLACE!

Ahiru no Sora

Release: 15 December 2020
Format: Blu-ray
Price: $89.98
Audio: English and Japanese
Runtime: 600 Minutes

Sora Kurumatani is short and as scrawny as a stick figure, but he loves basketball with a burning passion. Unfortunately, on his first day at Kuzuryu High, he learns that the school’s supposed basketball team is nothing of the sort. Instead of a haven for aspiring athletes, the gym has become the home turf for a gang of thugs, delinquents and perverts whose only skill at dribbling involves drooling on the floor while peeking into the girls’ locker room. But since Kurumatani has to play to fulfill a promise made to his ailing mother, he’ll have to take these sour lemons and squeeze-play out a winning basketball team somehow. Impossible? Perhaps. But with the help of a counselor and members of the girls’ club, he’ll do his best to get them all on the rebound in AHIRU NO SORA!

Chidori RSC

Release: 15 December 2020
Format: Blu-ray
Price: $69.98
Audio: English and Japanese
Runtime: 300 Minutes

Due to firearms restrictions, sharp-shooting tournaments in Japan are held using special rifles that fire beams of light instead of bullets… and since devices that fire pulses of photons are so much safer than weapons that shoot live ammunition, there’s little reason for age restrictions at shooting matches. As a result, many Japanese schools now have shooting clubs that compete against each other, culminating in nationwide contests! However, when Olympic hopeful Hikari Kokura transfers to Chidori High, she’s alarmed to discover that the Chidori High School Rifle Shooting Club she’d planned on joining has been dropped due to lack of interest. Convincing her friends and classmates to join this offbeat club will be just the first target in Hikari’s ambitious plans as a team of young markswomen set their sights on going all the way to the national championships in CHIDORI RSC!
