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

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.

Dragon Ball Z Kai: Season 4 [Blu-ray]
Manufacturer: Funimation Prod Brand: FUNIMATION PRODUCTIONS LTD. Model: 26515022

Naruto Shippuden: Set 14
Manufacturer: WarnerBrothers Brand: VIZ MEDIA Model: 26154861
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. (Rated T+ Older Teen, but suitable for ages 12 and older: violence, violence against women, minor risquÃ© humor, grotesque imagery, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon (167.
