Anime & Movie Releases for 09/08

Here are the releases for today (09/08) 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.

Not much to interest me this month.

I have already seen the Bleach Movie. I have Daphne in the Brilliant Blue already - more for the fan service than the actual story. There are some pretty cool fight scenes and reminds me of an early version of Burst Angel. I watched Jinki and was not captivated by it at all. I did get through the first couple DVD's, but then kind of dropped it after that. If you like young girls in tight outfits driving large Mecha, then it may interest you.


Red Garden: The Complete Series Box
A wave of teen suicides washes over New York City (not Tokyo for once) and we follow the exploits of four teenage girls/ high school classmates: Kate, a rich preppy snob, Rose, family babysitter and modest personality; Rachel, party chick extraordinaire; and Claire, the quiet rebel. The girls all wake up one morning only to discover that they cannot remember anything of the night before. Things really get creepy when an old woman informs them that their proverbial cards have already been pulled and though they still appear alive, death is on its way to claim each girl.

Bleach Movie 2: The Diamond Dust Rebellion
An artifact known as the "King's Seal" is stolen during transport from Soul Society by an unidentified Soul Reaper and two arrancar-resembling girls who control fire and lightning. Toshiro Hitsugaya seems to recognize the Soul Reaper, who stabs him in the stomach; he then abandons his post to pursue him. Seireitei suspects him of treason and orders his immediate capture, with the possibility of disbanding the 10th Division should he be guilty.

Nana: Uncut Box Set V1
Two girls with the same name leave their old lives behind and come to Tokyo to start fresh--what adventures await these two hopeful young women under the bright lights of the big city? Nana Osaki wants nothing more than to make it big as the singer of a rock 'n' roll band, while Nana Komatsu wants to put her life in motion and get her new relationship off to a good start. When the two Nanas fall in love with the same apartment, they become roommates and then best friends, and the party has just begun!

Daphne in the Brilliant Blue: Collection 2
The ladies of the Nereides Agency are back in the water and, as usual, they're in way over their heads! Sea monsters, terrorists and the bothersome Wong Chang Lee brothers they can handle, but when a baby gets tossed into the briny mix, who's going to end up playing wet-nurse? And then there's the aquatic con artist who's out to take the wet t-shirts right off the Nereides' lovely backs (what do you call that anyway, a rip-tide?)

Jinki Extend: The Complete Series
Aoba is a young girl who loves to build models of robots. She lived alone with her grandmother until her grandmother passes away. Shortly after she is kidnapped and brought to a secret base where she discovers a huge robot. The piloted robots fight against Ancient-Jinki in The Grand Savanna, but the true meaning behind the fights is hidden. Aoba works hard at the base so one day she can pilot one of the robots and discover these secrets.
