Limited Edition Captain Tylor OVA Collector's Ultra Box Set

From director Koichi Mashimo (.hack//SIGN, Avenger, Madlax, Sorcerer Hunters) and character designer Tomohiro Hirata (Last Exile, Urusei Yatsura, Trinity Blood) comes one of anime's most beloved action/comedies!

Six long months have passed... The Raalgon Empire has developed a horrible new type of weapon and Tylor has been charged with the duty of intercepting them as they're being transported. But when all that could go wrong, does go wrong – the crew of the Soyokaze finds themselves at the mercy of their enemies. As the hours tick down toward their execution, the crew wonders, has their irresponsible captain misled them, is this all a part of some greater strategy, or is it a path towards war?

Weather Report Girl

From acclaimed director Kunihiko Yunyama (SLAYERS GREAT, KIMAGURE ORANGE ROAD) comes Weather Report Girl, the story of one woman's surprisingly steamy approach to the late-night news!

Channel ATV is in serious trouble. With viewer ratings at an all-time low, they've got to come up with an amazing gimmick, and fast, or else their sponsors are going to cut their funding! But a whirlwind is headed for ATV in the form of one Keiko Nakadai – a substitute weather girl for the prime-time news. In one quick flash of her panties, the ratings are sky-rocketing! Thanks to the public's overwhelming support of Keiko's brazen tactics (not to mention her gorgeous body), she's finally secured the bright and sunny future she's always wanted. However, there's a dangerous storm brewing on the horizon. Michiko Kawai, ATV's former prime-time weather girl, is furious that Keiko has stolen her job, and she'll stop at nothing to get it back! But poor Michiko may have bitten off more than she can chew because Keiko's soft exterior hides a nasty vicious streak, and she's not about to give up her dream job so easily. Japan's airwaves are about to get a whole lot hotter!

SHINGU: Secret of the Stellar Wars: Fateful Conclusions

The final volume of director Tatsuo Sato's (Nadesico, Stellvia) Sci-fi Epic Shingu: Secret of the Stellar Wars! The fate of the world rests on the shoulders of a single middle-school student.

Pale skin, green eyes, and a piercing gaze – once you meet Kanata Myouken, you'll never forget him. And now this mysterious new stranger is tracking down Muryou! What's worse, he is only a harbinger of things to come. Soon after Kanata's arrival, two very ominous spaceships appear, hanging low over the town of Tenmo and both appear ready for a showdown at any moment. One of the ships belongs to the Galactic Federation... but who controls the other? While the situation on Earth is becoming more tense, trouble is beginning to brew in space as well. Four of the deadly Sanadon warships have been spotted on a direct intercept course with Earth! With each passing moment, the destruction of everything Nayuta loves draws closer. Will she be able to make the ultimate sacrifice and push the power of the Shingu farther than ever before? When the body becomes a new vessel, the truth behind the Shingu will finally be revealed...
