Posted February 21, 2013 11:57 PM by Webmaster
Section23 Films, Houston-based distributor of Sentai Filmworks anime, has announced the Blu-ray release of Dusk Maiden of Amnesia: Complete and Mysterious Girlfriend X: Complete. The anime titles street on June 4th and June 11th respectively.
Synopsis: 60 years ago, a young woman was left to die in the abandoned school building behind the exclusive Seikyou Academy. No one knows why. No one knows how. But the horrifying tale and the legends of the ghostly haunting that followed live on to this day. Perhaps it's not so surprising then, that among Seikyou's many school clubs is one for students interested in "paranormal investigations." What might raise more than a few hairs, however, is that the founder of the club is the ghost herself. Unable to remember how she died and trapped in the grey land between life and death, Yuko latches onto Teiichi Niiya, a freshman who can inexplicably see her. Together they and the other unsuspecting members of the club begin to unravel the many dark mysteries that surround Seikyou. Will unlocking the secret of Yuko's gruesome death finally free her? Or will her sudden close association with a mortal have even stranger repercussions on both of their existences? In a tomb of silent classrooms, the answers await in Dusk maiden of Amnesia.
The Blu-ray release of Dusk Maiden of Amnesia includes two music CDs, Japanese audio commentaries, and clean opening and closing animations.
Synopsis: When the oddly peculiar Mikoto Urabe transfers into Akira Tsubaki's class, he finds that life has thrown him the weirdest curve ball ever. Because while Urabe may be an anti-social loner who sleeps on her desk, carries a pair of scissors in her underwear and breaks out in sudden fits of insane laughter, there's something about her that Tsubaki just can't quite put his finger on. Until he accidentally puts his finger in it, and suddenly the phrase "sharing spit with a girl" takes on an entirely new meaning! Before he can wipe her drool off his face, Tsubaki is mysteriously addicted to Urabe, which isn't half as strange as the fact that she not only finds this normal, but already seems to have plans for her new drooling boyfriend. So, can a girl spitting in your face ever be a good thing? Is this relationship bound for disaster or great expectorations? Find out as Urabe puts a spittle love in Tsubaki's heart and things get really bizarre in the most dysfunctional bodily functional anime ever.
Thank god Section23 is mining the bizarre drool swapping corners of anime now. After the last two release slates included Patlabor, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, and Kids on the Slope I was starting to worry how this company would attack my wallet on a monthly basis. Thankfully this month I'm safe.
Ordered both of these. I love the cover for Mysterious Girlfriend X, gotta love Urabe and her drool, but Yuko on the cover of Dusk Maidens is lost in such a dark cover. I hope Sentai lightens it up some.
