Anime & Movie Releases for 09/01

Here are the releases for today (09/01) at your local Video, Book Stores or the infamous Amazon website in the US. I only review Movies and Box Sets that are coming out as this will get the most bang for your buck. I did "borrow" the summaries from various sites so you can get a brief review of the story.

My personal favorites this week are Fate Stay Night and Ah! My Goddess.


Fate Stay Night (Viridian Collection)
Shirou Emiya lost his parents in a fire when he wasyoung and was later adopted by a sorceror by the name of Kiritsugu Emiya.Although he was full of admiration for his adopted father and yearns to becomean ally of justice, Shirou has limited powers and was unable to become a strongsorceror like his father. That is until one fateful day, he was drawn into theHoly Grail War and had to summon a female "Servant" known as Saber in order toprotect himself. It turns out that the Holy Grail War involves a series ofbattles among powerful sorcerors to fight for the possession of a relic thatwill grant one's wishes, the Holy Grail.

School Rumble: First Semester (Viridian Collection)
Tenma has fallen for her oblivious classmate but hasn't worked up the courage to express her feelings to him. She continually tries unorthodox ploys to confess with a frustrating lack of success.

School Rumble: Second Semester - The Complete Collection
Continuing right where season 1 left off: Harima still likes Tenma but still runs into obstacles everytime he tries to confess his love to her. To complicate the situation, Class 2-D challenges class 2-C once again and there's a rumor floating around that Harima and Yakumo are dating as the school prepares for the cultural festival.

The Wallflower: The Complete Series
Kyouhei, Ranmaru, Takenaga, and Yukinojou are beautiful, handsome, young men living in a huge mansion. One day, their landlord, whom they call "Auntie", asks them a favor: to make her niece, Sunako, who's going to be living with them, into a respectable young lady. She agrees to make their living expenses free of charge if they succeed, but if they fail, she'll triple their rent.

Ah! My Goddess: Complete Collection
Kosuke Fujishima's classic story of a hapless college boy and his one true goddess comes to life. Keiichi Morisato is an engineering student and the top driver of the campus racing club. While calling for take out, a wrong number puts him in contact with the Goddess Hotline. One misplaced wish later, Keiichi finds himself blessed with Belldandy, the perfect girlfriend and a bonafide goddess.

His & Her Circumstances DVD Collection
Like a drug, Yukino Miyazawa was addicted to admiration and praise from those around her. She worked hard to become the perfect student, the perfect girl. But that was before... him. Souichirou Arima. The instant she met him, she hated him. Without even trying, he snatched the very glory from her hands by easily acing the high school entrance exam that should have made her the class representative. To take back what is rightfully hers, Yukino is putting all her efforts into plotting her revenge; but was love part of the plan?


  1. Fucking hell, it'll be ages (if ever) before any of these come out in Australia >_<

  2. I have that old first collection of Oh! My Goddess DVD, this brings back memories.

  3. I think some of my first Anime DVDs were the Ah! My Goddess OVAs and the movie.

  4. Looks like my paycheck will be pretty bleek this week thanks to these releases :(
