Section23 Films: Four Anime Titles in May

Posted January 25, 2013 09:49 AM by Webmaster

Section23 FilmsSection23 Films, Houston-based distributor of Sentai Filmworks anime, has announced the Blu-ray releases of Kids on the Slope: Complete Collection, Colorful: The Motion Picture, K-On! The Movie and Phi-Brain: Season 1: Collection 2. Section23 is releasing one title per week throughout the month of May.


Kids on the Slope: Complete Collection (Street date: May 7)

Synopsis: Summer, 1966. High school freshman Kaoru Nishimi is struggling to adjust to the latest of many moves in his young life, this time to his uncle's home in the seaside town of Kyushu. It's never easy adjusting. It's never easy fitting in. But this time will be different. This time he'll meet friends who will change his life forever. And he'll discover a new passion, one that grabs his heart and rocks him to his very soul. It's music. A beat. A whole new way of looking at life. It's called jazz, and together with bad boy Sentaro and music store girl Ritsuko, they're going to follow their muse to wherever their music takes them. Travel to a time when dreams and a couple of musical instruments really could change the world.

Colorful: The Motion Picture (Street date: May 14)

Synopsis: There is a train station on the other side of death, yet not all who arrive on the platform will be judged ready for passage onwards. For one unready soul, there will be both a test and a second chance. Rather than be reborn, this soul will awake in the body of 14-year-old suicide Makoto Kobayashi, where it must not only find a way to fit into Makoto's existence, but also unravel two mysteries. What is the secret of the great sin it committed in its own previous life and what were the reasons that led to Makoto's suicide? While some may believe the truth to be as plain to see as black and white, Makoto soon finds that the real world is overlaid with so many shades of grey and rainbows of colors that even the most obvious of "facts" are not what they seem. With the soul's time in Makoto's body quickly running out, the answers to all life's mysteries await discovery in the acclaimed animation masterpiece that won the 34th Japanese Academy Prize for Excellence in Animation.

K-On! The Movie (Street date: May 21)

Synopsis: Graduation time is finally here, but the girls of the Sakuragaoka Girl's High Light Music Club aren't going to let the end of high school be the end of all they've built together. First, though, they have to keep a promise to take a trip together, and like everything else they do, they're not doing it halfway. So it's time to hop on the double decker bus and go around the world as the band heads for the birthplace of the British Invasion: the United Kingdom. On the way, they have to solve that one last big puzzle that's been vexing them: what to get for their underclassman rhythm guitarist Azusa, who will be taking over the club once they don their caps and gowns and leave Sakuragaoka for the last time. Get ready for a Magical Musical Tour as the whole gang takes in the sights and sounds of London and prepares for one last amazing encore.

Phi-Brain: Season 1: Collection 2 (Street date: May 28)

Synopsis: Kaito's spent his whole life solving puzzles, and now his life depends on being able to solve some of the world's most difficult -- and deadly -- puzzles. Designated as Puzzles of Fools, these puzzles are designed to push Kaito's solving abilities to their limits and beyond, or destroy him in the attempt. Each one is more fiendish than the last, and they're all intended to prepare Kaito for his attempt to solve the Puzzle of God. There's just one catch: Kaito doesn't want to solve the Puzzle of God; that's all the POG's idea. And when Kaito discovers the identity of the mastermind behind the POG, the sinister group that's been endangering him and his friends with their cruel puzzles, it may just be the final solution. Solving puzzles has never been more challenging or potentially lethal.

It's great to see Section 23/Sentai Filmworks continue to release great anime titles on Blu-ray. I am interested in checking out Colorful and Kids on the Slope; I've heard good things about both of them!

Awesome. I got every episode of Kids on the Slope through less than savory means but hadn't watched them yet. I thought maybe the niche subject matter meant it wouldn't come to the U.S. I'm deleting the files now and pre-ordering as soon as it goes live. Shinichiro Watanabe caught my attention with Cowboy Bebop and kept it with Samurai Champloo. I'll watch anything he does.

Kids On the Slope and Colorful are both excellent. I'm definitely getting the BDs for them.
