posted on 2009-10-06 15:56 EDT by Egan Loo
The North American anime distributor Section23 has announced that it will release Sentai Filmworks' first DVD collection of the To Love-Ru science-fiction romantic comedy anime series on December 15. Section23 will also release Switchblade Pictures' live-action animal thriller film Gun-Kyu ~ War Pigeon on December 8 and Switchblade's fantasy double feature Makiriko / Battler Sienne Matra on December 1. The second and final volumes of Clannad After Story and Ghost Hound will ship on December 8 and December 15, respectively. All of these releases will be in Japanese with English subtitles.
The television anime adaptation of Saki Hasemi and Kentaro Yabuki's To Love-Ru -Trouble- manga aired in spring in 2008. The "slightly risque" stort centers on Rito, a high school boy who cannot get the nerve to tell a girl named Haruna that he loves her. Then, while he is sulking in his bathtub, a girl named Lala from another planet appears before him. The manga began its serialization in Shueisha's Shonen Jump magazine in 2006, and it just ended on August 31.
