Yu Yu Hakusho: Season 3 (Classic) [Blu-ray]
Manufacturer: Funimation Brand: Funimation Model: 17356129
From cutting classes to brawling in the streets, Yusuke Urameshi is not your typical role model. In fact, this kid’s nothing more than a fourteen-year-old delinquent with a talent for trouble. But in a single selfless act Yusuke dies while saving another. For such noble sacrifice he is given a second chance at life, but it’s to be a life far different than the one left behind. Now a Spirit Detective, the young man must track down demons and humans alike who desire to rule over the three realms of reality.The Dark Tournament has come down to a final grudge match and Yusuke’s full wrath is unleashed as a friend’s blood stains the arena floor. But there will be no time for rest or recovery as kidnapping follows victory and further intrigue threatens the boundary between worlds. A tunnel is being carved, one which completed will lay waste to the World of the Living. There are seven who seek an age of destruction and chaos, and hero must battle fallen hero. The third season of the popular fantasy-adventure Yu Yu Hakusho begins with the conclusion of the "Dark Tournament" storyline, as Yusuke dukes it out with the mighty demon Toguro the Younger. Toguro morphs into an over-muscled monster who makes the Incredible Hulk look scrawny; Yusuke unleashes his incredible spiritual power. Their duel takes almost five episodes to reach its conclusion. The "Dark Tournament" saga felt a lot like a Dragon Ball Z adventure, with characters screaming challenges, ramping up their powers, and punching each other through stone walls. And like Dragon Ball Z, the tone was light enough that no one really minded if characters who were killed in action didn't stay dead. But as the new "Black Chapters Saga" story arc gets underway, the tone of Yu Yu Hakusho grows darker and more violent: humans are being tormented and slaughtered, not just bizarre-looking demons. Koenma summons Yusuke to resume his duties as Spirit Detective. Humans in one part of Tokyo have begun manifesting strange and dangerous spiritual powers, including creating weird alternate dimensions or "Territories." Working with the deformed Toguro the Elder and six recruits, Sensui, Yusuke's predecessor as Spirit Detective, is building a tunnel between the Human Realm and the Demon Realm. Repulsed by the cruelty he witnessed on the Black Chapters, a Spirit Realm tape of humanity's evil deeds, Sensui has decided to destroy mankind by unleashing monstrously powerful demons. Naturally, only Yusuke and the members of Team Urameshi can prevent this disaster. (Rated TV PG, suitable for ages 12 and older: violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, profanity, alcohol and tobacco use.) (57. Beneath Bui's Armor, 58. Wielder of the Dragon, 59.

Fairy Tail: Collection Two (Episodes 25-48) [Blu-ray]
Manufacturer: Funimation Prod Brand: FUNIMATION PROD INC Model: 26927082
The action never stops as the riveting adventures of the rowdiest wizard guild in Fiore continue! The mighty members of Fairy Tail push their powers to the limit in an explosive battle to rescue Lucy and save their home base from annihilation. Friendship--a sacred bond at the heart of many anime series--comes to the fore in these episodes of the hit slapstick-adventure Fairy Tail. As the stalwarts of Fairy Tail battle the sinister Phantom Lord Guild, they and the viewer learn that Lucy is a member of the fabulously wealthy and powerful Heartfilia family. But she's rejected her cold, mercenary father for the warm loyalty of her friends. When Natsu goes one-on-one with Jaleel the Iron Dragon, the audience gets a glimpse of his latent powers, while Gray inadvertently wins the heart of morose water-wizard Juvia ("drip, drip, drop"). Lucy's loyalty is tested when she discovers the shady background of Guild lothario Loke, but she brings his sad story to a satisfactory conclusion. The series takes a darker turn when Natsu, Gray, Lucy, and Juvia learn about Erza's unhappy childhood in a sinister tale that pits the Guild members against their most deadly foe to date: Jellal, the servant of Zeref, a god who is the embodiment of hatred. But even in the most dire situations, the filmmakers leaven the threats with a healthy dose of slapstick: Natsu fights two of Jellal's minions with his head stuck in a kawaii (ultra-cute ) cat mask. Before the gang has time to celebrate their latest victory, they're threatened by the Thunder Legion. Their leader, the lightning-wizard Laxus, intends to wrest control of Fairy Tale from his grandfather, Makarov--even if it means killing the innocent citizens of the surrounding city. Much to their chagrin, Natsu and Gajeel have to join forces to defeat Laxus. The ending suggests even greater foes are lurking in the wings and that the wizards of the Fairy Tail Guild have been manipulated from behind the scenes. Although these episodes offer more action and less humor than previous installments, Fairy Tail remains as entertaining as ever.

Hellsing Ultimate: Volumes 1-4 Collection [Blu-ray/DVD Combo]
Manufacturer: Funimation Brand: FUNimation Entertainment, Ltd. Model: 25331816
Remember when vampires had fangs? Remember when they were known as terrifying monsters that stalked the night, instead of moody teenagers that sparkle in daylight? It's time to drive a stake through the lovesick heart of contemporary vampire nonsense. Satisfy your bloodlust with Hellsing Ultimate, the definitive action-horror anime. The rogue vampire Alucard is the Hellsing Organization's deadliest instrument in its mission to protect the British Empire from satanic ghouls and Nazi freaks. He is not alone in his assault on the occult; the master has a servant. Policewoman Seras Victoria accepted Alucard's gift of dark salvation after falling in the line of duty, and now the remnants of her human soul struggle against her growing vampire urges. Together, they haunt the shadows as a sinister force of good - and tonight the foggy streets of England shall flow with the blood of their evil prey. The Hellsing Ultimate OVA (2006) continues the popular vampire broadcast series Hellsing (2001), both of which were based on a manga by Kouta Hirano. Deadly vampires and ghouls are stalking England, which means Sir Integra Hellsing and her minions must take them out. The overwrought duel between Hellsing's super-vampire Arucard and Father Alexander Anderson, a bio-engineered vampire in the service of the Vatican's murderous Iscariot Organization, gets put on hold when the Valentine Brothers, Jan and Luke, lead an all-ghoul army in an assault on Sir Integra's stronghold. Arucard, the newly recruited "Draculina" Seras, and Walter the Butler defeat the invaders amid buckets of blood. Hellsing and the leader of the Iscariot Organization discover the force behind the attack is the Millennium Brigade, a cadre of Nazis who moved their research program involving the undead to South America after World War II--with the assistance of the pope. As the first half of the OVA ends, the Nazis launch an attack on Britain--incongruously setting off in zeppelins. Ultimate is a veritable gore fest, serving up even more violence than the original program. Characters are dismembered, bodies torn apart, eyes gouged, and corpses devoured. But it's not a particularly original series: the shooting effects are copied from Terminator 2, while the ghouls recall The Night of the Living Dead. These first four episodes waste more blood and bullets than a Charles Bronson film festival. The filmmakers seem to be out to offend everyone and they largely succeed, climaxing with a Nazi officer declaring, "I love holocausts." (Rated TV MA, appropriate for ages 18 and older: graphic violence, violence against women, sadism, grotesque imagery, tobacco use, extensive profanity, potentially offensive religious imagery, ethnic slurs) --Charles Solomon
