Inu x Boku SS and Hellsing TV Box-Set Released Monday
posted on by Andrew Osmond
On Monday August 12, MVM will release the TV anime series Inu × Boku SS. The romantic comedy follows a mistress and her "servant" (bodyguard) in Maison de Ayakashi, a high-class building better known by the name "Demon House (Ayakashi-kan)." Rumors about it abound; in fact, the people who live in this mysterious building are all descendants of demons. Ririchiyo Shirakiin is troubled by her inability to interact with people, and comes to the building in order to change herself. There she meets Soushi Miketsukami, one of the Secret Service bodyguards assigned to each tenant. He tells her, "Please make me your dog!"
Naokatsu Tsuda (Shikabane Hime: Kuro, Squid Girl) directed the anime adaptation of Cocoa Fujiwara's original manga at David Production. Haruko Iizuka (The [email protected], Toaru Kagaku no Railgun) designed the characters and acted as chief animation director. Toshizo Nemoto (Towa no Quon, Phi Brain: Kami no Puzzle) oversaw the scripts, and Takuya Satō (Strawberry Marshmallow, Mayoi Neko Overrun!) supervised the scenario and setting.
Also on Monday, Manga Entertainment will release a four-disc box-set edition of the 13-part Hellsing TV series (not to be confused with the OAV version, Hellsing Ultimate, which Manga Entertainment has also released). It is also based on Kouta Hirano's horror manga about Alucard, a vampire who fights demonic forces on behalf of the British government.
Manga will also release a Naruto Shippūden movie Trilogy pack on Blu-ray (pictured) and DVD, carrying three big-screen adventures of the boy ninja. The set will contain Naruto Shippūden: The Will of Fire together with its two predecessors, the first Naruto Shippūden film and Naruto Shippuden: Bonds.
