Section23 Films: Four Anime Titles in April

Posted January 20, 2013 01:50 AM by Webmaster

Section23 FilmsSection23 Films, Houston-based distributor of Maiden Japan and Sentai Filmworks anime, has announced the Blu-ray releases of Tokyo Magnitude 8.0: Complete Collection, Inu X Boku Secret Service: Complete Collection, Hiiro No Kakera: Season 1 and Patlabor The Mobile Police: Original OVA Series - Early Days. All four are available for pre-order, and arrive in April 2013. Exact tech specs and bonus features have yet to be revealed.


Tokyo Magnitude 8.0: Complete Collection (Street date: April 2)

The devastation is unleashed in the span of seconds. Yielding to centuries of unrelenting pressure, an ancient rift in the Earth gives way and a force equivalent to over a thousand atomic bombs erupts beneath the feet of the citizens of the world's largest mega-cities! For the people of the greater Tokyo area, the results are catastrophic as even "earthquake-proof" buildings sway like weeds in the wind, gas mains rip open in gouts of flame and huge sections of the city's vital infrastructure are torn into shreds. For sister and brother Mirai and Yuki who were caught in the earthquake while in Odaiba during summer holiday, it's the start of a desperate journey back to their parent's home in Setagaya. For motorcycle courier Mari, it means an equally frantic battle towards Sangenjaya and her own daughter and mother. Joining together in an epic odyssey through the mangled streets, these three must brave impossible obstacles and endure unspeakable hardships and heartbreak, with no way of knowing if their loved ones are even still alive. But they've no other choice! In the aftermath of nature's fury, only the strongest of will and most courageous of heart can hope to survive.

Inu X Boku Secret Service: Complete Collection (Street date: April 9)

Ayakashi Kan... a mysterious condominium, widely believed to be haunted, where every resident is required to have a personal bodyguard, or Secret Service agent. When the socially inept Ririchiyo moves in, all she's looking for is a little peace and quiet and some practice at inter-personal communications. However, she quickly discovers that her bodyguard Soushi might not just be foxy; he might actually be a fox a fox spirit that is. In fact, all of Ayakashi Kan's residents, and their agents, are more than they seem at first glance: each and every one of them has both human and non-human ancestors. But that's okay, because Ririchiyo does too. Welcome to the weirdest, wackiest mansion in town where no one is entirely human and mayhem is the order of the day.

Hiiiro No Kakera: Season 1 (Street date: April 16)

Every girl dreams of being an enchanted princess, but how many stop to think about all the grim and horrible things that happen in fairy tales? That's a lesson Tamaki learns all too graphically when she's attacked on the way to her grandmother's house by creatures she thought only existed in myths! Fortunately, she's rescued by an extraordinary young man: one who's not only part demon; but her future classmate as well, and one of the protectors that Tamaki will need if she's going to fulfill her destiny as a Tamayori princess. A destiny that no one's bothered to tell her she's inherited until now! And if it wasn't bad enough to learn that every plan she's had for the future has to change, to top it all off, Tamaki still has to start attending a new high school as well. The new girl in school will have to learn how to deal with some very, very old school-type problems in a hurry.

Patlabor The Mobile Police: Original OVA Series - Early Days (Street date: April 30)

Drunk drivers are bad, but put a drunk driver in a giant robot called a Labor and you've got a disaster waiting to happen. And when REAL criminals get their hands on those same giant robots, the cops need giant robots of their own just to maintain the status quo, right? Well, that's the logic behind the development of the Patlabor program and special Labor Crime units like Japan's Section 2 in any case. But what logic fails to take into account is where to find police officers who're equally conversant with both robots and the regulations? And that's where the motley crew of Section 2, Division 2 comes in. With ridiculously perky tomboy Noa Izumi and gun-happy madman Isao Ohta as primary Labor pilots and the impossibly laid back Captain Goto in what passes for command, SV2 is ready to hit the streets with their twenty ton feet. But will they be taking a byte out of crime or have they bitten off more than they can chew? The law of the land and the laws of robotics are about to collide in the first Earth shattering collection of Mobile Police Patlabor.

Holy crap, I never thought we'd say any Patlabor of any kind on blu-ray. Glad I never paid one to two hundred dollars for a used DVD set. Pre and ordered.

YES..........Patlabor! Man I love 80's-90's anime, they just don't make em like that anymore! I hope the old Tank Police series gets released on Blu as well.

I'm absolutely stoked about Patlabor, but Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 seems very compelling too!

Patlabor looks good. Also the Blu isn't too pricey either. Which is always a plus.

Eyes almost glazed over until I got to Patlabor. Great to see the Blu-rays making their way here!

Good to see the Patlabor OVA series on blu.

I wish there was more 80s - 90s anime on blu ray:

Venus Wars
Bubblegum Crisis
Silent Mobius
3x3 eyes
Battle Angel Alita
Tokyo Babylon
Gunsmith Cats
Dragon Pink
Lodoss War
Otaku no Video

@ k_dog77803 ~~ 'Dominion Tank Police' is a nice thought; but since it was last owned by the now-defunct CPM, I fear that it's in licensing hell at the moment...

@ KarmaNL ~~ Nice wish list!! I'd also add 'Martian Successor Nadesico', 'BGC:2040', and 'Cowboy Bebop'.

I'm equally excited about the very existence of 'Patlabor' on Blu; never thought I'd live to see it!

But the one I REALLY want to see is 'Tokyo Magnitude 8.0'. I've seen the first four episodes, and they were very exciting; afterward, I wondered why no U.S. distributor thought enough to pick up the license. The show is gritty, scary, and heartfelt--so very different from the usual anime fare produced the last four years or so.
