Anime & Movie Releases for 09/15

Here are the releases for today (09/15) 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.

Okay - I have way too many favorites in this week. It really seems like they are dumping a ton of stuff out and it is not even the holidays yet. I cannot see where you could go wrong on getting any of this weeks collections (maybe DBZ > it is just getting retarded with the number of re-master releases).

MORTAL KOMBAT II: The Outworld villains, refusing to accept the outcome of the tenth Mortal Kombat tournament, try their hand at the direct approach--storming Earth instead, amidst the same synthetic fog, computer morphing, and pounding techno score cues as the first film

  1. GitS: 2nd gig would be an awesome buy if you don't already have it. Perhaps a little weaker then the first season, but still a very accomplished show.

  2. Whats the difference between the reg GOTS and the Anime Legends version? Just a smaller packaging?

  3. @ japancinema - only difference from what I am aware of is the packaging and extras.

  4. this kinda reminds me to find time to catch up on my animes. orz

  5. Petit Princess Yucie...that was a show where the US trailers made me NOT want to watch it. I have no idea how it really is though.

    Also yay for Case Closed <3 Shinichi, he is my little man.

  6. Mortal Kombat II was such a huge disappointment. I wanna KO that movie at the end. ><

    Despite that, I \bought it a few years afterwards. lol
