HOUSTON, January 26, 2010– Section23 Films, America's fastest-growing anime distributor, is pleased to announce two new anime DVDs from Sentai Filmworks, plus a special live-action double feature from J-horror leader Switchblade Pictures.

Finally there is the lo-fi live action thriller Birthday Mail / Kokurri-San double feature. All three new releases go on sale today wherever finer DVDs are sold.

Neo Angelique Abyss Season One Collection presents the anime adaptation of the Angelique game series, the first season of which was broadcast on Japanese television Spring 2008. The collection contains all 13 episodes from that first season plus a load of extras, including “Neo Angelique Abyss Theater.”

SYNOPSIS: Once, Arcadia was a beautiful world. Now it is a land under siege, and against the horrifying creatures known as Thanatos, there is only one known defense: Purifiers, rare humans gifted with the ability to exterminate the life draining monsters. But Purifiers are few and the Thanatos are multiplying, so when the mysterious Nyx discovers 16 year old Angelique, he becomes doubly committed to recruiting her for the team of Purifiers he is organizing. For not only is Angelique a Purifier, she is the first female Purifier in recorded history; moreover, there is an ancient prophecy Nyx is aware of: one of a woman with special powers, the “Queen's Egg,” whose future will be inextricably tied to the fate of Arcadia! Science fiction, fantasy and romance intertwine in an epic story of fate and destiny: NEO ANGELIQUE – ABYSS- SEASON ONE!

Tears to Tiara Collection 2 brings together the last 13 episodes of the Celtic-flavored fantasy-adventure series in a single two-disc set. This action-packed series became one of 2009's big hits when it was first broadcast in Japan last April. Now North American fans have a chance to get in on the fun!

SYNOPSIS: Revelations, Retribution and Revenge... As Dragons Stalk The Earth! Although the Demon Lord Arawn has thus far lead the Gaels well in the battle for Avalon, their tiny force has been battered by the near constant combat. As Gaius is called to the High Court, Arawn attempts to lead Arthur and the Gaels to his own tomb, seeking treasure with which to continue funding their assault. However, the imperial forces' continuing advance instead prompts a desperate change of plans, forcing Arawn to use a divine spell with grave and unexpected consequences. As an act of treachery again changes the course of the war, leaving the untested Riannon alone in command, Ogam makes a stunning revelation! Ally turns on ally and the most ancient legends of lost Britain are reborn in the epic final half of TEARS TO TIARA!
