Until, that is, he discovers an unconscious girl in a strange uniform and suddenly finds himself in the business of rescuing damsels in distress, facing off against a group of magic users, and ends up with magical powers himself!

SRP: $29.98

SYNOPSIS: Amateurs study strategy, but professionals study logistics, because it doesn't matter how many tanks you can get into position if you don't have enough ammo to keep firing! Firepower and constantly evolving strategies are the name of the game as not two, not four, but six more schools square off on three additional battlegrounds! As Oarai's tank team continues their brutal face off against Chi-Ha-Tan, the firefights also rage between Anzio and St. Gloriana, Kuromorimine and Pravda, and Jatkosota and Saunders! Six teams enter and only the survivors will advance!

Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 80 min.
Street Date: 9/20/2022
Format: BD
Language: Japanese with English Subtitles
SRP: $29.98

SYNOPSIS: Being an anime fan is rather like an obsession and true otaku will go to extreme lengths to support their favorite sagas. SEITOKAI YAKUINDOMO fans are no exception, and here's the payoff: another ridiculous story of the former all-girl's school where seemingly all of the ladies have sex on the mind constantly… or at least talk that way… while poor Takatoshi dutifully labors on as the male focus of the rest of the student council's hyper-focused attentions. From appearing in questionably-intended student films to taking some very hands-on wrestling lessons, no good deed will ever come without pun-ishment when it's constantly innuendo and out the other in SEITOKAI YAKUINDOMO 2!

Then, just when it seems that Dororo's luck has run out, he's rescued from a man-eating ghoul by a mysterious young man wearing a doll-like mask and artificial limbs that conceal deadly blades! Born without arms, legs, sight, hearing and even skin after his father crafted a monstrous deal with the forces of darkness, Hyakkimaru now somehow seeks out the demons who cursed him, regaining one of his lost attributes for each monster slain. With deadly secrets from his own past to protect, the young thief joins into an alliance with the impossible warrior, setting forth on a quest to restore Hyakkimaru's stolen humanity and rid Japan of devils in DORORO!

It's an easy decision to make, but what they don't know is the price that each of them will have to pay for their new abilities.
