Naruto Shippuden Uncut Set 14 (DVD)The attack on the Leaf Village intensifies, and Naruto's transformation into the Nine-Tailed Fox reaches a critical level. With eight tails already emerged, Naruto makes a surprising discovery that changes everything. His confidence buoyed, Naruto seeks a face-to-face meeting with Nagato, the Pain responsible for the massive destruction in the village. Can one boy's will alter destiny?]]> These episodes conclude the "Sennin Training" and "Konoha's Destruction" arcs of Naruto Shippuden, bringing the attack of the Pain Ninja to a suitably dramatic conclusion. Much of the action takes place in flashbacks and altered states of consciousness and/or reality. Naruto defeats the Sixth Pain in a duel that threatens to loose the terrible nine-tailed fox demon imprisoned in his body. His father, whom he never knew, helps him preserve the seal. Naruto uses one of the chakra antennae to locate the real Pain, Nagato, and confront him. In a series of prolonged flashbacks, Nagato fills in the story of how he, Yahiko, and Konan survived as war orphans until Jiraiya-sensei cared for them. Naruto counters with an account of his own alienated childhood. Their struggle evolves into a clash between Nagato's rejection of the possibility of peace in the Ninja world and Naruto's unshakable belief in Jiraiya's mission to end hatred and create an era of understanding. Faith and honor triumph over wrath, and Nagato undoes much of the destruction he wreaked on the Hidden Leaf Village and its inhabitants in his final act. The conclusion of this storyline packs a powerful emotional punch. The "Konoha's Legacy" arc, a mixture of material from Masashi Kishimoto's manga and original anime content which begins with episode 176, focuses on how Naruto influenced the people around him, beginning with Iruka-sensei and Kakashi-sensei in the original Naruto series. Although Pain was defeated, Madara, the masked leader of the evil Akatsuki, continues to plot against the Hidden Leaf, and Sasuke is pursuing his own potentially deadly agenda. The two-part flashback comedy-adventure "Yondaime Hokage's Legacy" (episodes 170 to 171) originally aired as a one-hour special in Japan.

Gantz: The Complete Series
Manufacturer: Funimation Brand: Funimation Model: 28935036
Gantz is a sexually-charged sci-fi head-trip' a gory experiment in flesh and blood where the only thing worse than dying is dying again.If you are chosen by the bizarre black sphere known as the Gantz, you are already dead. You remember dying, yet you can eat, sleep, have sex; it feels a lot like life. Strangers join you in this limbo. While some are good, some are very bad. All are dead like you for now. You might be able to reclaim your mortality. But first, the Gantz demands that you undertake missions of brutality and madness, killing aliens hidden among the population. It is your only chance and you have no choice. You must play this disturbing game. You must experience this nightmare. And if you die again and you likely will it's permanent. As Gantz opens, alienated high-school student Kei Kurono and his childhood friend Masuru Kato are killed rescuing a wino who's fallen on the subway tracks. They wake up in a room dominated by Gantz, a mysterious black sphere that sends them and other newly dead people on missions to kill weird aliens hiding on Earth. Among the recently departed is buxom redhead Kei Kishimoto, and Kurono's visible reactions to her overendowed figure constitute one of the running gags in the series. But Kei falls for Kato, who can't bring himself to shoot even the most grotesque alien--although he has no qualms about beating a menacing upperclassman to a pulp. After each assignment, Gantz awards the surviving participants points: if anyone makes it through enough battles and takes out enough aliens to acquire 100 points, they're set free. The inane plot is little more than an excuse to show all the blood, gore, and nudity the filmmakers can pack into each 22-minute episode. Although Kurono goes berserk fighting aliens, he can't save his friends from being crushed, shot, eviscerated, and cut in half. The story shifts illogically, violating rules that were established a few episodes earlier, before stumbling to a conclusion that has nothing to do with most of the previous action. Gantz feels like a throwback to the early '80s, despite director Ichiroh Itano's heavy-handed efforts to jazz things up with split-screen effects, reverse colors, badly integrated CG, and odd camera angles. Gantz was heavily edited when it was broadcast in Japan in 2004, but these uncut episodes seem less like the focus of the battle over censorship Itano describes in his interview than a cheesy exercise in gratuitous violence. A live-action feature adaptation of Gantz debuted in Japan in January 2010. (Rated TV MA; suitable for ages 17 and older: nudity, sexual and toilet humor, graphic violence, violence against women, violence against children, torture, explicit sexual situations, suicide, grotesque imagery, extensive profanity, tobacco and drug use, ethnic stereotypes) --Charles Solomon (1.
