Coming February 2009

Title: SKULL MAN COMPLETE COLLECTION
Published by: Sentai Filmworks
Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 325 min.
Street Date: 2/2/2010
Format: DVD
SRP: $39.98

SYNOPSIS: Otomo City: where freedom and justice have atrophied to the bone; where conspiracy rules the day and death stalks the night… Death in the form of The Skull Man, a literal Grim Reaper whose skeletal grin presages grisly mayhem and murder, even to the monstrous mutants that haunt the city's underworlds! Now, to investigate a bizarre slaying, journalist Minagami Hayato and photographer Kiriko Mamiya must stalk this ultimate predator, through a festering cadaver of a city where the corruption flows in rivers as deep and foul as the sins of the reigning elite, and unearth a secret so shocking that an entire city has been turned into a tomb to contain! In a nightmarish necropolis where nothing is as it seems, vengeance comes in the form of a living Death's-Head in SKULL MAN – The Complete Collection!

Title: KIRENJI WOMEN'S COLLEGE
Published by: Switchblade Pictures
Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 125 min.
Street Date: 2/9/2010
Format: DVD
SRP: $19.98

Kirenji is so definitely NOT your typical Japanese girls' school. For example, while the word “hot” might describe an attractive girl at other places of higher education, at Kirenji it's more likely to mean “hot blooded,” “hot tempered” and “ready for red hot action” (as in physical combat, that is)! So when 17 year old Maki enrolls, thinking she's the baddest bad girl of them all, she quickly learns the hard way that at Kirenji she'll have to punch her way to the top of the pulchritudinous power pyramid… and it's just too bad that the equally intimidating Natsumu is standing in her path! Epic battles, beauties bashing and girl on girl action abound, especially when new girl Kirei joins the fray, in the non-stop cat fight that is KIRENJI GIRLS' COMBAT SCHOOL – the Complete Collection!


Title: TO LOVE RU COLLECTION 2
Published by: Sentai Filmworks
Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 325 min.
Street Date: 2/16/2010
Format: DVD
SRP: $39.98

SYNOPSIS: As if being accidentally engaged to a demon-like alien princess while attending high school and still making points with the girl he REALLY likes wasn't enough to keep Rito on the edge of insanity, he's now stuck with an more dangerous challenge: living up to the expectations of LaLa's devil-like father, King Deviluke! And if that's not bad enough, the girl Run (aka, sometimes, the guy Ren) decides to make her move on Rito, the school is overflowing with even more not-so-well disguised ghosts and aliens (some of whom need an education on how to emphasize their feminine side,) SOMEBODY lets word slip that LaLa is actually an alien princess, and to cap it all off there's a trip to the waterpark PLUS the obligatory Hot Springs episode! Love isn't a battlefield… it's the War of the Worlds in TO LOVE RU – Collection Two!!!


Title: MARIA-HOLIC COMPLETE COLLECTION
Published by: Switchblade Pictures
Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 300 min.
Street Date: 2/23/2010
Format: DVD
SRP: $39.98

SYNOPSIS: It's not easy to find the perfect girl, even when you're the same sex! Kanako thought attending an all girls school would be the perfect way to meet the girl of her dreams, but after her hot new roommate turns out to be a guy in drag, and catching the eye of the most popular girl in school only brings down the wrath of all the OTHER similarly obsessed girls, she's not so sure! Complicate things with a cat-eared dorm leader, her roommate's rude-mannered maid and identical twin sister (who attends an all boys school, of course,) and WAY too many attractive girls of questionable persuasions and the question becomes whether Kanako can die from frustrated nosebleeds! (Life would be SO much easier if guys didn't literally give her the hives!) Will Kanako ever find a non-polar opposite of a compatible non-opposing polarity? Let's just say that the quest for true love will not run straight in MariaHolic – The Complete Collection!


Title: RYUJI THE YAKUZA
Published by: Sentai Filmworks
Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 139 min.
Street Date: 2/23/2010
Format: DVD
SRP: $19.98

SYNOPSIS: Behind a bloody veil of mystery, the puppetmasters of the Yakuza secretly control Japan… Yet for all their power, the Yakuza are governed by their own codes of loyalty and honor, and there are those who are seen not as criminals, but heroes. Ryuji Ogami, of the Goda-gumi, is one such enigma: torn between the worlds of Bullets and Bushido, his hidden compassion perfectly balances the brutal force of his lethal iron hand. If your cause is just, it is said, seek out Ryuji. But endanger those he cherishes, like young club hostess Megumi and his junior Kazuki, and he will find you. And when the code of the Yakuza is violated by his own gang, Ryuji's own code will leave him no choice. The city will burn as the deadliest man in Yokohama takes on his own in RYUJI THE YAKUZA- The Complete Collection!
