Description

Netto and Meru was visiting the Ministry of Science and there, Professor Akira Tsuichiro was doing research to make Net Navis into 3D. It was an experiment in using a Synchro Chip that will allow an Operator and a Net Navi to fuse (Cross Fusion), creating an unique dimensional area to allow the Net Navi to materialise.

If the experiment is successful, maybe someday they themselves can do Cross Fusion...? With that in mind, Netto and Rockman watched over the experiment with hope.

Shouting out "Cross Fusion", the personnel inserted the Synchro Chip into the PET. However, the Net Navi fused instantly and then split up right away without materialising for long!

Netto was disappointed with the results but, right after the experiment, a huge number of viruses invades the main computer at the Ministry of Science! Faced with the viruses that were going to start causing destruction, Netto says "It's our turn now!" and goes after them...

Drawn from Keiji Nakazaw’a true life experiences surrounding the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima during the summer of 1945, Barefoot Gen tells the story of one family’s struggle to survive in the aftermath of one of World War II’s defining moments.

Yet, nothing he had ever experienced would prepare him for the horrors which follow the bombing of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945.

Legendary animation producer Masao Maruyama has created a critically acclaimed adaptation of Nakezawa’s autobiographical graphic novel. Barefoot Gen remains a vivid, poignant, powerful and authentic document of this milestone event. In bringing Nakazawa’s memories to life through animation, with haunting images forever etched in out minds, Maruyama has made a masterpiece and an advocacy for future world peace.

Demon Warrior Luna Varuga

Description

What comes between a girl and her dragon? If she's Princess Luna, absolutely nothing!

Of course, it's not that Luna's really all that crazy about Varga... after all, what can you do with a 200 ft. tall dinosaur with a really lethal case of bad breath?

No, Luna's attachment is much more personal; you see, when Luna's castle was being attacked by an invading army, she accidentally sort of invoked the ancient spell that summoned Varga, only to find herself stuck on the monster's forehead... permanently.

This is great for repeling invaders, but it just ruins your chances for a good marriage, especially since the part of Luna that's stuck to Varga is a portion of her anatomy that's extremely indelicate to discuss in polite society.

This is one case where having all your troubles behind you is NOT such a good thing, but at least poor Luna's luck hasn't completely bottomed out: on the rare occasions when there isn't an invading army at the palace gates, Varga can shrink himself down to a vestigal tail that only ruins the cut of Luna's cute little battledress.

Still, between an army of invading demons, a giant sea serpent, a mad magician, a gluttonous general, an extremely ill-behaved barbarian berzerkers, and a whole slew of shape-shanging soldiers, sorcerors and sidekicks, neither Luna nor Varga will have a moment to themselves for a long, long time.

Ohgami leaves for Paris, consequently leaving Hanagumi without a leader; thus a new character will be introduced here. To be replaced with Lieutenant Ohgami is the former leader of Hoshigumi, Rachette Artile - a rationalistic and distinct individual, who brings about serious problems to Hanagumi. The members are now in complete discord with Rachette. Meanwhile, Teikoku Kagekidan was being threatened by some irrelevant demons. Having made repeated mistakes due to the absence of Ohgami, Hanagumi is now faced with an unprecedented danger, while the abolishment of Teikoku Kagekidan is being schemed.

Sagara, a Second Lieutenant under Mithril's command, is assigned to the duty of protecting a girl named Kaname Chidori, who attends high school in Japan. To accomplish this task, he pretends to be a transfer student attending at Kaname's school. As Sagara settles into his new role as classmate, a massive plot unfolds beginning with the kidnapping of Chidori. What is Chidori's role in the conspiracy?

Description

It is the dawn of the 21st century. Mankind has terraformed and colonized Mars. But we are not alone in the universe. An ancient race of alien beings, known only as 'The Gods', has been watching mankind's progress...and waiting. Now, these mysterious aliens have returned to halt mankind's expansion into space...by force.

Now, the planet named after the God of War will become our final battlefield, as mankind fights a desperate battle with the latest in high-tech, military hardware: hyper-advanced aircraft, orbital fighters, and gigantic, desert battleships brimming with the most advanced weaponry.

But will it be enough? The aliens have awesome, incredibly destructive weapons at their disposal - including 'Hell' - an unstoppable stealth carrier. But the alien's primary weapon is insidiously quiet and invisible - a mind control plaque. Incurable. Inevitable. Contagious. Humans are powerless to resist its effects, which transforms even the most loyal soldiers into dangerous subversives.

Our last hope lies with Captain Akuh and the crew of the Battleship Aoba. If his top-secret mission is successful, mankind will deal a decisive blow to the alien armada. But Akuh's girlfriend is showing signs of nymphomania - the first symptom of alien subversion!

Chitose shares his house with five ladies. One might think the continued attention of this many girls would be a good thing, but too much attention can prove to be painful. Did I mention they're also instructors at his school (hence the title)? Not only is he the subject of their abuse at home, but at school as well. Even when things finally calm down at night, all the rooms are taken so Chitose must sleep on the couch.

Description

Koji Nanjo was a famous rock idol who went through life without caring for anybody, with one exception: When he was in fifth grade, he watched a wild-eyed boy playing soccer. The image of that boy's intensity stayed with him into his adulthood.

Izumi Takuto was a genius soccer player who bore emotional and physical scars from his mother's murder attempt when he was a child. He spent his whole life keeping anybody from getting too close to him.

The story of how these two men met again and fell in love is covered in the OVA Zetsuai 1989. Bronze Zetsuai 1989 is the sequel. When Izumi leaves for soccer training in Italy without saying good-bye, Koji rushes to catch up with him at the airport. But on the way, he has a motorcycle accident that leaves him in a coma. Izumi is the only person who can bring him out of it, but he's not sure if he really wants to...

Cathexis is a collection of five Koji Nanjo music videos based loosely on Bronze, placing Koji and Izumi in all sorts of strange settings.

Hurricane Keiko has arrived!

The newscast weather segment. Usually the last thing anyone ever thinks about (unless they said "sun" and it wound up being "rain") but Keiko Nakadai’s going to change all that. Toiling in obscurity for years at a horribly rated TV station, Keiko has figured out what the weather report needs and doesn’t mind taking off her top (or lifting her skirt) on the air to do it. The ratings aren’t going to go down, that’s for sure.

Of course, some of the people at the station don’t find this appealing, and decide that Keiko’s got to go. They devise a series of horrible "accidents" for her, but Keiko usually seems to be about a step ahead of them.

Eventually, everyone at the station will discover that there’s far more to her than meets the eye as Keiko’s star rises incredibly quickly ... and as her importance increases, Michiko Kawai’s (the old weather girl) drops. Something has got to be done, but who can do it?

Description

The plot concerns womanising rock idol Koji Nanjo (tall, long blonde hair), who has just been re-united with the person he fell madly in love with six years ago on sight, Takuto Izumi (shorter, brown hair). Unfortunately, Koji had been informed that Izumi was a girl, when the truth is that he's a boy, and a hostile, emotionally scarred boy at that. Naturally Koji is rather confused and it takes him a long time to come to terms with his feelings for Izumi. It takes Izumi longer still, partly because he is unsure of what he wants and partly because he doesn't want to fall in love with anyone, let alone Koji, who he initially dislikes intensely. Even when they finally do reach some kind of understanding, there are other problems to deal with, such as Koji's older brothers Hirose and Akihito, who are determined to split them up. Even those who do support them, including the insufferably cheerful Katsumi Shibuya, Koji's best friend and Koji's permanently anxious manager Toshiyuki Takasaka, cannot always be trusted to stay out of their affairs...

Description

The story of two mighty space empires is told from the viewpoint of two 'heroes': Rheinhardt Von Museal, Admiral of the Galactic Empire, and Yang Wenli, Admiral from the Alliance of Free Planets. Both men are military and tactical geniuses and are born survivors. The ambitious Rheinhart has the goal of getting enough power to be able to free his sister from her obligation as one of the Emperor's Court ladies. He is fairly ruthless in this which is tempered only by his aide: Siegfried Kircheis. Yang is a pacifistic man who, when necessary, will do his duty even if it means fighting against an enemy fleet (since he is a *soldier*, after all). The drama between these 2 men is played out against a backdrop of great space battles, inept commanders, frightened soldiers, personal relationships, corrupt politicians and the workings of two space empires at war with each other. This is a space opera on a very grand scale. Note that there is a very heavy Prussian influence on the series, especially present in the Imperial uniforms...

At the top of a large structure in Tokyo Bay, a scientist walks to the edge and, despite the cries of onlookers, throws himself into the sea to his death. Weeks later, the Special Vehicle Division has had little respite due to a recent rash of Labor malfunctions resulting in massive citywide destruction. No-one seems to know the cause of the malfunctions; the only hint belongs to a cover-up involving a military-class Labor going on a rampage--without a pilot. It is soon evident that a disaster of epic proportions is taking shape, and only Goto, Shinobu, and the SVD can counter it. If they succeed, they’ll be heroes...but if they fail, they’ll be the most hated villains in history.

But, when the cats start trying to smuggle serious military hardware into the country and kidnap Kagura Total Security's very own cute phantom cat, will even everything they've got be enough? And even if they suceed, will there be anything left when they're done?

Heart to Heart

Description

The To Heart anime began its run on 04-01-1999 and lasted a total of 13 episodes. It was roughly based on one of it's dating simulation incarnations.

The story basically revolves around Hiroyuki Fujita, a highschool boy who seems to make friends with girls pretty easily. He does have one male friend, Masashi, but all the rest are female. The stories are fairly episodic, and the tone of the series is quite laid back. Each episode focuses on rather ordinary things, such as seating placement in class, clean up duty, etc. There's nothing in the series which would have you on the edge of your seat. Everything on the whole looks pretty normal for these people. They do everyday things, but it leaves you feeling good.

Pretear

Description

Shin Shirayuki Hime Densetsu Pretear is a long title which translates into New Legend of Snow White Pretear. What makes Pretear anime special is the story. Its a magical girl show, but its part Cinderella plus part Snow White and a dash of bishounens! You will see a lot of fairy tale parallels with this anime series.

On her way to school, Himeno meets a little boy who asks her to take his hand. When she does, she faints and later she wakes up staring up at a dark haired bishounen!

The bishounen who helps revive her turns out to be Hayate, one of the seven knights of the earth. They were looking for Shin Shirayuki Hime Densetsu Pretear (the legendary magical girl that can help them save the earth from ruin and destruction). Hayate, the more tempermental of the seven believes that Himeno is the girl they are looking for.

The story is not just about Himeno and the seven knights. It is also about her home life and her father, Kaoru. Kaoru and Himeno are very close to each other. Natsue, Kaoru's new wife, is jealous of the closeness that Himeno and Kaoru share. Natsue also has two spoiled daughters, Mawate and Mayune. Her father, Kaoru, is quite enamored with his new wife and the life he lives that he assumes that Himeno is happy too.

Armitage III: Polymatrix

Description

2179: Mars has been colonized by Earth, populated by humans and 'Second Types' robots - robots designed to perform the menial tasks humans won't do. Then there are the 'Third Types' - illegal humanoid robots designed by a nationalist force to look and behave exactly like humans - living undetected among the Martian population as citizens, until one man, Rene' Danclaude, declares war on the 'Thirds,' starting a massacre in a vow to destroy them all.

That's where she comes in.

She's Naomi Armitage. A cyber-punk Martian cop in hot pants, with an attitude as deadly as her gun. She's also a 'Third,' and her fight against D'anclaude is a fight for her survival. Her partner, Ross Sylibus, lost his partner at the hands of a cybernetic killer and hates robots.

Ross must face this prejudice when he is injured and received cybernetic limb replacements, bringing him closer to becoming one of the monsters he abhors. He begins to realize that being human is more then just flesh and blood and joins Armitage in her fight against D'anclaude and her quest to discover the mystery of why the 'Third Type' was created. Armitage and Ross are brought together in a bond of love and hope as their journey uncovers a secret that could destroy two worlds!

This is a stroy about technology and emotion. About hatred and love. About a human on the verge of becoming a machine and a machine on the verge of becoming a human.

It is a story of survival.

Basara takes place in Japan, about 300 years from a large disaster that occurred around now; the 1990s or soon after. After the disaster humanity and civilization crumbled, and Japan, as an island country, fell into isolation and disrepair. The climate changed, and some parts were turned into desert, while others were filled with all sorts of strange creatures. But at the start of the manga, we are not sure which parts of Japan have been changed, and how, except for where the main character, a girl named Sarasa, grew up. That part, Hyakko village, just north of Shikoku, had been turned to desert, and that is where the story begins. Sarasa is the twin sister of a boy named Tatara, who was prophesied to be the one to lead all out of submission. The submission written of is that of the cruel kings who war against each other for control of Japan; each control a sector of it, but none have yet been able to reign supreme. One of them, The Red King, learns of this prophecy and sends an army to exterminate the village. This is where the story begins.

Description

What makes "Sentimental Journey" unusual is that each episode is completed unrelated to any of the others; instead, each episode focuses solely on one girl and tells a short romantic story. The only common element tying the stories together is the presence of a boy (and not even the same boy) in each girl's past, a boy who used to be puppy love, or an old crush, or a best friend, or just a short acquaintance. And this boy would have an influence over some part of that girl's present life. The stories ranged widely from straightforward girl-gets-boy romance to supernatural drama, and the actual storytelling and animation quality also tended to fluctuate noticeably, but on the whole "Sentimental Journey" is an anime that is unlike anything else out there.

Tenshi no Tamago

Description

The plot for Tenshi no Tamago is not something that can easily be related in words. The film is largely about the presentation more than action, and understatement instead of open revelation. Existentialism abounds, heightened by the moody artwork and the dialogue, which asks more questions than it answers. Bear in mind, however, that the conflict in the plotline primarily occurs in the audience’s mind, not in any sequence of actions in the film, spurred by speculation arising from one jarring impression after another. There are only two primary characters in Tenshi no Tamago: a young girl who bears an egg and a man who holds a strange cross. The audience is left to speculate as to the identities and true personalities of these two images which act in this disturbing world. Indeed, much of their dialogue involves the question "dare ka" (who are you). For such an existential film, however, this is perfect, as any open declaration of their thoughts, instead of such questions and mysterious actions, would ruin the mystery of the film.

Zenigata's triumph is cut short as Zenigata turns around to find Lupin also behind him and very much alive. Lupin is surprised himself at seeing his exact double in a coffin.

After a brief chase scene, the film cuts to Egypt where Lupin is trying to recover "The Philosopher's Stone". He retrieves it despite Zenigata's efforts to trap him. He turns the stone over to Fujiko in exchange for a date. Naturally, Fujiko steals the stone from him to sell it to a mysterious man named "Mamo". From there, the film takes many twists and turns as Lupin attempts to find out who Mamo is and what his plans are for the stone and for Fujiko.

Despite some lapses into silly, sci-fi cliches, the plot and tone of the film remains consistent and solid. The characters are well developed during the film. Unlike the flat, "do-gooder" attitude in Cagliostro, each of the characters actually has a complex personality. Jigen struggles with his loyalty to Lupin despite Lupin's stubborn attitude to pursue Mamo and Fujiko. Goemon abandons Lupin entirely at one point coming close to blows with Jigen at one point. Lupin casts aside all his friends to pursue and beat Mamo.

Description

It begins with a tournament, organized as a birthday present for Dollar Money, the son of Gyusan Money, the richest man in the world. The combatants are to fight simultaneously, until there are only four contestants left. At this point, the remaining four were to fight four "aliens", and whoever finished first was to fight Mr. Satan for the grand prize. The first half of the movie is mainly comedy, with Gohan, Mirai no Trunks, and Kuririn fighting their way through the tournament, becoming three of the four finalists. All the while Goku is watching his son from heaven, and Mr. Satan is engaged in his usual antics in trying to get away from "Those people!" The second half begins when, in the final rounds, the four "Aliens" have most obviously been replaced with REAL aliens- led by one named Bojack. Bojack had apparently tried to fight the gods some time ago, and was imprisoned in a star. Kaiou's death during the Cell game freed him, and he was trying to get special revenge on the North Kaiou by taking his student's planet first. Trunks defeats his opponent, but loses to Bojack, while Kuririn and Daisuke both lose to theirs- at the cost of Daisuke's life. Gohan doesn't finish his fight before all of the villains convene and introduce themselves, thus spawning one of the finest one-sided movie fight scenes yet, which lasts until everyone is trashed and Gohan is being crushed to death by Bojack. Goku, breaking the afterlife rules, teleports out of heaven in an effort to save Gohan. Gohan then goes SSJ2 and kills two out of the three henchmen, and Gohan then kills Bojack. The movie ends with everybody recovering in the hospital, a typical happy movie ending.

Description

A dark, powerful figure is unconscious, experiencing vivid flashbacks of Kakarotto defeating him. The scene switches to a happy one of Goten and Trunks searching for the Dragon balls, chaperoned by Videl. Goten wants to wish for lots and lots of food to eat, and Trunks wants the Dragon balls so he can go on lots of adventures. They have some fun, cute adventures finding the DBs, and eventually make it to the last one, which is strung on the necklace of a village shaman. The villagers are about to sacrifice a young, beautiful maiden to the monster god of the village, in return for their peace and well-being. Goten and Trunks fly off and defeat the monster--a really goofy dinosaur--easily. The villagers congratulate them and give them the Dragon ball, and all three Z soldiers stay in the village overnight. The next morning, Videl goes out early and runs into Brolli, who has inexplicably survived Movie #8, and has also inexplicably lost most of his brain. Brolli mistakes Videl for Kakarotto and knocks her unconscious in a lake, then goes after Goten and Trunks. The two boys spend some time running around, avoiding Brolli, and getting into hi-jinks. This goes on until Gohan steps in for no good reason and tries to fight. There's a really typical fight in which Brolli is covered by lava, and Gohan is rescued by kuririn in a Piccolo outfit. Brolli escapes the lava, and fights back again. Goten wishes that the Dragon would defeat Brolli, and Goku's ghost is resurrected to help them fight. Using a Triple Kamehameha, the Son family knocks Brolli into the white-hot sun. Goku disappears, leaving the question of whether or not he was really there, and everybody goes home happy.

The trouble starts when two odd looking androids (#15 and #14) make their way through the streets toward a hotel where Goku, Gohan, Kuririn, Master Roshi, Oolong, Chichi, and Trunks are staying. They wreak havoc as they blow up buildings and cars and send people screaming in terror. Eventually they locate Goku and destroy his temporary residence. The Z warriors rescue everyone in the skyscraper before it fully collapses. Trunks reminds Goku that they will only hurt civilians if they continue to fight in the city. As a result, Goku flies, chased by the two androids, to some uninhabited ice plains. There they battle, and we see that yet another robot has been released from Dr. Gero's laboratory. This robot, #13, tells Goku that the and the others were created by Dr. Gero's computer, and though Dr. Gero is dead, his computer magnified his hatred for Goku many times over, and created #13, #14, and #15 as a result. As they fight, it is clear that the androids are gaining the upper hand (Goku fights #13, while Mirai Trunks takes #14 and #15). Vegita comes to help out Goku, because he wants to save the victory over Goku to himself. There is now one Saiya-jin per android (Vegita takes #15). Soon, all the Saiya-jin go SSJ. Vegita and Trunks make short work of their foes. Gohan tries to help his father, but is shot at, and saved by Piccolo, who helps Goku take on #13. #13 absorbs the batteries and processing units of the two fallen androids after realizes they have been disposed of. With the power of the other two androids within him, android #13 is transformed into Super 13. This blue monstrosity makes short work of all the Z warriors but Goku. He continues to pummel Goku until Goku falls under water, at which point he turns his attention to Gohan. Gohan sees that Goku is gathering energy for a Genki-dama, and one by one, the Z warriors sacrifice themselves yet again, though they are near unconcious. Eventually, Goku turns SSJ while gathering energy, and absorbs the Genki-dama's energy. His aura is so powerful that Super 13's skin begins to melt away. Goku embeds his fist into Super 13's abdomen, and destroys his remains.

The Z warriors (excluding Goku) are introduced to two new surviving Saiya-jin. We find out that one of them is named Paragas, while the other remains temporarily anonymous. These Saiya-jin wish to make a new home for their kind, with Vegita as king. Goku happens to be at a school interview, but is contacted by Kaio-sama and is told that a Saiya-jin of immense power utterly destroyed the South Galaxy, and is now heading towards the North Galaxy bound on wreaking havoc. Meanwhile, the Z warriors have decided to venture to New Vegita, and after arriving catch wind that the legendary Super Saiya-jin is heading towards the North Galaxy. They form a team with Paragas's son Brolli to see if they can find out any extra information, but all they discover is that New Vegita is being constructed mostly by slaves. During their expedition Goku teleports to join them. We soon find out that Paragas knows of a comet which will eventually collide with New Vegita destroying the planet. In the middle of the following night, Brolli attacks Goku, but Paragas is able to stop him by use of a remote control linking to an odd electronic necklace Brolli wears. The next morning, Goku informs Vegita that he has recognized Brolli as the legendary Super Saiya-jin. Trunks then informs his father that New Vegita was simply a ploy, and Paragas confirms this, stating that he and Brolli were disposed of as trash from Old Vegita-sei and left for dead. Thanks to Brolli's awesome powers, they managed to survive. They plan to exact revenge on Vegita and take over Earth. Vegita is afraid of Brolli, after admitting to himself that he really is the legendary SSJ. Brolli has meanwhile broken the control device around his neck and is fighting against all the Z warriors, with the exception of the terrified Vegita. When things are looking grim for the Z warriors, Piccolo arrives with a senzu for everyone. Kuririn and Kame-sennin are able to escape to safety through Piccolo's spaceship, and Vegita finally begins to fight Brolli. The giant comet has already begun to descend on New Vegita, and Paragas attempts to escape in pod, only to be killed by his son. Goku continues to fight Brolli even as the comet descends on them, but to no avail. At last, Piccolo instructs everyone to give their strength to Goku. They do so, but Vegita is too full of pride to commit. Eventually he allows himself, and Goku is given enough power to defeat Brolli. Just as the comet is about to blow New Vegita to smithereens, Goku teleports everyone to safety and a happy ending ensues.

Description

Our story begins on New Namek, where a giant, planet-sized machine begins to devour the world. The Z warriors catch wind of the plot, and fly off to the crippled planet. By this time, all the inhabitants of Namek have been captured by advanced battle droids, and are being led off to a prison camp where they are to be executed. However, our heros arrive just in time, and save the Nameks from certain death. As the droids prepare for battle, the leader of the machine army, Metal Cooler, reveals himself. He explains that after Cooler was blasted into the sun, the space-faring Big Ghetti Star came across his remains and assimilated Cooler's brain. The only way to sustain the tremendous sphere is to sap large amounts of energy from the cores of planets and its inhabitants. Piccolo, Kuririn, and Gohan begin battle with the robots, but their armor proves to be exceedingly tough to puncture. While his friends are occupied with the droid army, Goku begins to battle Metal Cooler. It isn't long until Goku gains the upper hand, and knocks off one of Metal Cooler's arms. Unfortunately, Cooler regenerates his limb, and informs our hero that the Big Ghetti Star instantaneously corrects weaknesses and repairs damage. Now with better tactics, Metal Cooler begins to win the fight. Yet out of nowhere, Vegita comes to the rescue, and joins Goku in his foray. Meanwhile, Kuririn and Gohan have been captured by the droids, and flown to the prison camp. Only Piccolo remains, and with a huge burst of energy, he evaporates the remaining droids. With the army destroyed, Piccolo flies to the heart of the Big Ghetti Star. Vegita and Goku attack Metal Cooler at full strength, and turn his body into such a fine powder that no regeneration is possibly. Thinking that they have won, they are shocked to see hundreds of Metal Cooler's sliding down a nearby ridge, and running straight towards them. The next thing they know, they are hanging in the main chamber of the Big Ghetti Star by thousands of tiny electrodes. Cooler begins to steal their energy, but finds that the Ki of a Super Saiya-jin is too much to handle. With overloading batteries, the Big Ghetti Star begins to self-destruct. Goku and Vegita, in a final showdown with the massive core of the world-eater, destroy Cooler's remains. The good guys barely manage an escape, and the Big Ghetti Star explodes in a fireball. Namek is left scarred, but no blood is shed this day.

A young boy with elf like ears and a sword is fighting a gigantic monster. Despite his masterful sword handling skills however, the boy is defeated. Time jumps forward to a point somewhere around the 25th Budoukai. As Gohan and Videl sit in class, Gohan receives a message on his wristwatch informing him that his assistance is needed in order to save an old man who is contemplating suicide. After saving the old man, Gohan learns that the old man only attempted to jump off a building in order to get his attention. The old man produces a golden music box, which he tells them contains a legendary warrior who has been trapped for ages. After several attempts to open the box using Goku's shear strength and Bulma's technological expertise, the warriors collect the Dragonballs and summon Shenlon to release Tapion, the warrior who is trapped inside the box. The box shatters at Tapion is released, and Trunks and Goten marvel over the legendary warrior. After inquiring as to his surroundings, Tapion informs them that he must be returned to the box at once, or the Earth will surely be destroyed. Tapion walks off as the Z Warriors contemplate the events that just took place. The following day Hildegarn, a large monster, is reeking havoc on the city. Gohan tries unsuccessfully to defeat the monster with several very large Ki blasts. However, the monster does not subside until Tapion arrives, and plays a tune on his flute, which causes the monster to disappear in a puff of smoke. The following day, Bulma attempts to build a device that will contain the monster and Tapion as well as the music box did. Unfortunately, as Tapion sleeps inside the device that night, the monster escapes from within him, and reeks havoc on the city once again. After a long and drawn out battle with Hildegarn, Goku decides to use a technique that he has never used before. He goes SSJ3, powers up, leaps into the air, extends his fist, and shouts "Ryu Ken". Hildegarn explodes in a flash of light. After the battle, Tapion presents Trunks with his sword, saying he won't need it anymore, and flies off. Neither the monster, nor Tapion are ever heard from again.

Description

This is a "magical girls" series about two twin girls who go to high school. Tomomi is a tomboyish girl who is good at sports (she's the star of the volleyball team). Mikage is more feminine and is better academically, despite her tendency to blow up the Chemistry Club. Both girls have boyfriends, though Mikage's left for London in the 2nd episode. Mikage tends to have more romantic relationships while Tomomi is on the 'buddy' system. What makes these girls different is their ESP powers. Both have limited telekinesis, have telepathy only with each other, and can teleport only when both work together. The series is about the sometimes funny/sad/romantic lives of the two twins and the occasional complications brought about when they use their powers. There is also an almost gothic mystery surrounding the powers and the role 4 flowers play in it...

The trouble starts when a careless teenage...heaven dweller, neglects to change the tanks of the "soul laundry machine", which cleans souls that are going to hell. When the tanks explode, the heaven dwelling kid becomes possessed and turns into Janenba, a huge blob-like creature. Janemba changes the laws of the afterworld and creates much havoc, including bringing such characters back to life as Furiza and his minions and all of the other dead. Pikehan and Goku try to free the Demon lord and distract Janemba, it becomes evident that this tubby bastard's magic is almost invincible. While Pikehan shouts insults at the Demon lord's prison, Goku strikes back against the Jell-o menace. It looks as though Goku has won, when Janenba transforms into a smaller, deadlier fighter, whom Goku cannot defeat. When Vegita shows up, he too realizes that he cannot beat Janenba, so Goku convinces Vegita to fuse with him. Unfortunately, Vegita screws up the fusion dance, which is amusing in and of itself, and they turn into fat Gogita for 30 minutes. During this moment of weakness, Gogita gets the living snot beaten out of him. Meanwhile, Gohan, Videl, Goten, and Trunks are taking care of the masses of undead that now walk the Earth. They prove to be no match for our seasoned warriors. When the Fat Gogita transformation wears off, Pikehan buys Goku and Vegita the time to fuse correctly. In this new form of Gogita, Janemba is easily defeated and the rules of the afterworld return to normal and the generic happy ending ensues.

The emergence of several mutant creatures from their holding tanks, which Jaga plans to use to gain his revenge on Mr. Satan. Elsewhere, the enraged Android 18 trashes Mr. Satan's mansion in an effort to collect the 20 million zeni he promised the Artificial Human for throwing the Tenkaichi Budoukai to him. As their bickering ensues, a strange man enters Mr. Satan's house with a challenge from Jaga Badda, one of Mr. Satan's childhood rivals. Mr. Satan agrees to accompany the man back to Jaga's castle, and Android 18 wanting to collect her money tags along. Making his grand entrance to face Jaga's challenge, Mr. Satan ever so gracefully slips on a banana peal and falls flat on his ass. With blinding speed, Jaga's mutant creations surround the cowering world champion Satan invites Android 18 to take on the mutants. Not wanting to miss out on the action, Goten and Trunks join fight and the three super-warriors quickly extinguish all the mutants at hand. Jaga, angered by yet another defeat at the hands of Mr. Satan, reveals his laboratory full of bio-warriors. As Trunks and Goten investigate, they run across a very familiar specimen Brolli! Not wasting any more time, Jaga orders the release of his super-warrior. However, due to a fluid overflow during his release, Brolli is now covered in genetic-altering goop. Android 18 releases a flurry of attack on the monster, only to be taken down with one swift blow. Trunks then saves Mr. Satan from Brolli's attacks, but in doing so causes the release of several thousand gallons of genetic-altering goop. The two Saiya-jins power up, and begin their battle with the legendary Super Saiya-jin's third incarnation. The battle ensues, the Saiya-jins become distracted, and Android 18 intervenes, only to be knocked away. Kuririn arrives just in time to save his wife, and the battle continues. The two Saiya-jins are once again distracted by cries for help from Mr. Satan, and are soon in danger of being killed themselves. Kuririn saves Goten, whose head is about to be crushed by Brolli, with a Kienzan, and Trunks draws Brolli away with his patented full-moon-ass-slapping-bird-flipping technique. Up against a wall, Trunks is saved once again as an entire container of genetic-altering goop empties itself right on top of Brolli. With Brolli out of the way, Trunks, Goten, and Kuririn turn to the task of evacuating Jaga's island castle. A tidal wave of goop is now engulfing the island, and all efforts on the part of the three Z-Warriors to stop it fail. However, when the goop finally contacts the seawater, the warriors realize it'ss the key to stopping the goop. In what is probably the best scene in the whole movie, the three warriors fire a triple-Kamehameha into the ocean, causing a tidal wave to cleanse the island of the goop. In a final attempt to have his revenge, a much larger Brolli emerges to the ocean, turns to stone, and is blasted to peaces by Trunks and Goten. Finally, back on Kaio-sama's planetoid, Goku comments on Brolli's never-ending persistence and proceeds to stuff his face.

To save the Earth from alien invaders and their giant monsters, Dr. Kishida does what any other red-blooded mad scientist would do: he builds a giant robot - ARIEL - the ultimate feminine fighting robot!

Unfortunately, his grand-daughters refuse to pilot it! Apparently, they've got more important things to do than becoming teenage super-heroes. Besides, how are you supposed to study for your college entrance exams while getting beaten-up in battle?

Fortunately for Dr. Kishida, things aren't too well for the invaders, either. According to their reports, the Earth was the perfect target: lush, peaceful, and relatively defenseless. Theoretically, the planet should've surrendered long ago. Now, the war is at a standstill, the dreaded Accounting Department is warning about the serious cost overruns, and the head of the home office has arrived from Galactic Headquarters to personally oversee operations. Has Headquarters decided to unleash, The Audit - or do they have something even more evil in mind?

Gohan is caught by Koola's henchmen on his way back, but he is quickly saved by Piccolo until Koola himself intervenes and knocks him out. Gohan makes a getaway, and as he is giving the bag of senzu beans to Kuririn, one of Koola's henchmen blasts it to smithereens. Gohan, however, was given an extra senzu bean by Yajirobi, which he had tucked under his belt. He gives it to his father just before he receives a thorough ass wompin' from the henchman Sauza. As Goku is about to launch an attack on Sauza, Koola appears with Piccolo's unconcious body and does some further damage to it. Goku knocks Sauza away (and into a mountain) and begins to fight with Koola. They duel for a while, and Koola decides to transform. After Koola forms a ki attack powerful enough to destroy Earth, Goku realizes his failure, and after some sadness goes SSJ. He easily does away with Koola's energy technique, and proves that Koola has nothing on a Super Saiya-jin. Koola's last resort is to put a little distance between him and Goku and form an even more powerful planet destroying attack, which Goku catches, and eventually Kamehameha's right back at Koola. Koola is pushed into the sun by his own attack, and by the same Saiya-jin he refused to kill. Before a full happy ending can ensue, however, Sauza reappears. Piccolo kills him with ease. Then we get a little comedy, as the Namek-jin nonchalantly blows off Gohan.

His training is driven by revenge: Arion was told that his mother's blindness was caused by Zeus and Zeus' death will remove the curse. Finally, Arion and Geedo (a huge ape-like creature who had become Arion's friend and companion) left the Underworld to find Zeus. Seneca, a small thief, makes off with Arion's sword and this leads Arion to his first encounter with the forces of Zeus, commanded by his daughter Athena. Arion is captured but is later set free by Lesfeena, Athena's mute serving girl. As Arion rejoins Geedo and Seneca (and worries about Lesfeena), the forces of Zeus and Poseidon face each other in battle.

Description

Tylor again and again has beaten the odds. With volumes in this series ranging from character sidestories to devastating new weapons deployment, he and the Soyokaze crew have dealt with hardships.

Part 1: An Exceptional Episode (2 episodes)
The shooting war is over. The undefeated Soyokaze has returned home and all should be right in the universe. It's not ... the Raalgon Empire has created an incredibly powerful and destabilizing new weapon system. With the urging of the Prime Minister, they're about to deploy it and when the UPSF forces realize this the choice is clear. These are desperate times ...

Part 2: Sidestory Collection (6 episodes)
Many years ago, Azalyn's best friend in all the universe was a similar aged boy named Ruu. Also royalty of a sort, they shared the way that children do and both pledged that one day they would rule fairly. Both also agreed that one day they would meet again. Also included on this disc are stories featuring Yamamoto: the action hero, Kojiro - testing a prototype fighter, Andressen - evaluating the newest Marine Battlesuit, and "White Christmas", where it's Christmas, Yuriko is waiting and Tylor is late.

Part 3: From Here to Eternity (2 episodes)
Some time has elapsed since Tylor and the Soyokaze lead the UPSF forces to victory. The Raalgon war has cooled to a point where it can probably no longer considered to be one: in fact, many of the Soyokaze crew had been temporarily reassigned. Azalyn had taken time away from her duties as Empress. Although generally placid, some areas of the galaxy are certainly not: the Raalgon cabinet is in turmoil. It also seems to some that the UPSF is being pushed towards full scale war with the Raalgon Empire. If there’s a solution to this it won’t come from Tylor, but perhaps from someone who has learned Tylor’s lesson. It’s likely that no one can solve this before the carnage starts though, and even if they did that no one would listen. As the Tylor series comes to an end with this volume, things are looking very grim! Still, if there’s anyone who can save the day ...

Though the alien race was physically far superior to humans, the human champion miraculously defeated his challenger, ushering in another era of peace, this one marked by human kind's drive to improve itself physically. Our story begins at the turn of the 51st century, when a satellite training facility has been constructed for the purpose of honing the skills of Earth's best and brightest for a competition to decide who is truly the epitome of the species--the "Cosmic Beauty".

All that said, the story follows Akari Kanzaki, the daughter of a past "Cosmic Beauty" and a Freshman entrant into the orbital training facility. Determined to follow in her mother's footsteps, she will train with her classmates and overcome the rigors of training, school bullies, and her own lack of self confidence in her trek toward the great competition. She is joined by a number of other students, foremost among them Kris Christopher, emotionally solid and a priestess to be from the moon. Also along for the ride are Anna Respighi, a quiet, shy girl who is Akari's other roommate, and Tanya, a rather boisterous friend of Akari's from earth.

Description

The local cops have a problem: the Demon Seed - a small but surprisingly capable gang with a charismatic leader. Their mecha body suits allow them to undertake spectacular crimes that regularly rampage the city and totally humiliate the local police.

Desperate, the police have created a special branch just to deal with them. However, these unlucky few aren't having any better results than the regular police and the public is turning against them. If they could just foil the Demon Seed once it would make their careers much easier...They just need a plan....

Now chief Hattori has come up with...um...well...something the Demon Seed gang will definitely never expect. Hatched from chief Hattori’s alcohol-induced mind, it's just so bizarre that it’s just got to work!

Find the perfect crime fighter that's so super, so fantastic and captivating that even if they don't beat the Demon Seed gang, the public just won't care! And who could this person be? An Idol Singer of course!

Enter Maron Namikaze. Cute and innocent; she can’t sing or even dance but she has the only talent the job really requires: super-human strength! Now Hattori and his crew must mold her into the perfect Idol Singer and turn Maron their ultimate weapon...but at what cost? Can she really survive the Demon Seed's onslaught?

The story is somewhat reminiscent of Project A-ko in its innocence but its one of the most brilliant parodies of anime and Japanese Pop-Culture you’re likely to find ... complete with it’s own commercials!

Virus Buster Serge takes place in 2097, in a little place called Neo Hong Kong, which I thought was rather cool -- finally a bit of a departure from constant Neo Tokyo references. The denizens of earth are currently being threatened by an entity that calls himself the Incubator, who has created an evil virus which can infect both man and machine. Infect machines? Sound rather weird? At first I thought so as well. The virus does infect mecha, called Armored Gears in this series, taking them over. Enter STAND, a group of elite individuals encased in really cool powered armor suits called Variable Gear. The Knight Sabers ... err, wait ... STAND ... uses these suits to great effect fighting rampant virus infected Armored Gears. Serge himself enters the scenario against his will, as all reluctant heroes must. He has been plagued by really bad dreams, which have convinced him that STAND's leader, Raven, should be dead. He decides to make this happen by assassinating Raven himself, but only succeeds in earning Raven's attention. Raven decides Serge is quite a potential fighter and manages to snare him through cunning and trickery into joining STAND to help fight against the Incubator's viral attacks.

But this high-stakes sport has dark forces and dubious practices behind the fun and games. Lethal injections make steroids seem like vitamins. Instead of team prayer, there's demonic possession. Athletic sponsors are malevolent corporations with a more frightening agenda than increased market share. It's all just part of the game.

Based on the long cherished, classic Japanese novel Nanso Satomi Hakkenden by Bakin Kyokutei Takizawa (1767), a modified version of it was made into animation.

Taking place in the future, during this time wars were occuring in heaven, mostly for possession between the eight moons created by the savior Fuse that surrounded God's land. When the war ended, there was only one ruling family - that of the Oowaris, and the remaining son gained control of all the moons of heaven, except for one. Meiten, the moon of the pope, where people refrained from war and were therefore out of it's terms.

Eight people. Each from one of the eight moons. Each possessing one of the jewels - the elements that compose Earth. They are those who are destined to become saviors of humanity. All of them have sacrificed for these jewels, and are determined to complete their duty to Queen Fuse who entrusted these to them. When the mad emperor Kai threatens to revive a ghost who wants to prevent the restoration of Earth, these eight must battle using the powers given by their jewels in order to create Earth and defeat those who want to prevent it.

So they all go to Kusanagi, the ship in the center of God's land. They must gather the jewels in the key called Yatsufusa at Kusanagi's center, in order to create Earth.

The year is 2033, and Mega-Tokyo is just beginning to finish recovering from a HUGE earthquake that completely rearranged the face of Tokyo. Part of the recovery is due to the recent advancement of Boomer technology. Boomers (or Bumas, if you're watching the subbed version) are androids that look, think, and act just like human beings. They can be put to work, perform in the military, or, um, go berserk and terrorize the population.

The corporation responsible for all the major Boomer advancements is a monolithic company called GENOM, whose power seems to grow with every passing moment. GENOM seems to have a rather underhanded secret agenda (to take over the world, of course). With the world dependant on Boomer technology, there doesn't seem to be much that can resist its power.

Enter the Knight Sabers. This mercenary team of four young women equipped with hardsuits has the firepower and the courage to stand up to rampaging Boomers and the company behind them. Knight

Description

Enban Koujo Warukyure (UFO Princess "Warukyure" -- which I believe should be UFO Princess "Valkyrie" based on intuition) is based on the successful series on monthly magazine Shounen Gangan with the same title by Kaishiyaku.

The story takes place in a near future, on earth, where alien spacecrafts crash landed (probably?) on a public bath house and a shrine. On a real life, these kind of things should have attract attention, however, uniquely there is nothing at all. People are living their everyday life like there is nothing happened and those two scenes at the public bath house and the shrine already become a common sight.

Also noted there are two aliens (WARUKYURE and WARUKIYURE) -- one is the adult transformation of the other, has almost the same pronounciation only differs in writing.

But destiny has moved in ways that even the Overfiend could never predict, as a new race of half-breed demon beasts has evolved.

As Amano travels to the kingdom of Azuma to investigate the appearance of the Lord of Chaos, he is swept up in the world-conquering schemes of Caesar, Azuma's dictator.

Against the backdrop of a demon beast slave revolt and the return of the diabolical Munhihausen, only Amano and the demon beast Buju can save the world from another fiery destruction. With the fate of the earth and its inhabitants hanging in the balance, all wait to see what the coming of the Lord of Chaos will bring...

Sexy Commando Side Story: Amazing! Masaru

Description

Fumiya "Fu-min" Okometsubu is an exchange student who comes to a Wakame Highschool in his Junior year. He's a typical, shy nervous little boy but he is determined to make new friends and start a new life. He starts a plan to make 100 new friends. Things don't go quite according to plan though, as his first day at school also happens to be the first day that Masaru Hananakajima comes back to school. Rumor has it that he left school for the past 3 months to live in the woods and practice some sort of secret martial art. He also happens to be one of the nicest people you'll ever meet...and a complete weirdo who lives in this constant black hole of strangeness. Through a twist of fate, the two become "friends" (the twist of fate being Fu-min getting dragged around by Masaru constantly). Masaru starts a new club at school to demonstrate his secret new martial art- "Sexy Commando", and recruits kids from around the school. First is Fu-min, who gets haplessly drawn in. Next is Machahiko Kondo, a nice, honest boy who has this "thing" for being as manly as possible. After that, they run into Tsuyoshi Isobe, a boy who wants to be the strongest person in the world, and who isn't dissuaded by the fact that his body is built like balsa wood (his nickname is "Kyasharin", which basically means "living bones"). Together, they have many bizarre adventures - the Baseball Game of Honor, the Alien Camping Trip, the National Sexy Commando Tournament, Going to Masaru's house, the Kidnapping of Meso, and tons more.

Description

Somewhere in Japan, a bright light suddenly blasted from the ground. The light in a blink destroyed everything within a radius spanning hundreds of miles. The spot where the light appeared was immediately closed and the government sent in a special investigative team.

People argued that falling space debris caused it; others felt that the unusual movement of terrestrial magnetism caused the light. The truth, however, remained hidden and blurred from people's memories.

What people didn't know was, the light signals the approach of the one who would terminate the human race.. the ringing of the bell to let everyone know that the war has begun. A signal emerges from the light, but no one notices except for a little girl.

Ten years later, an army of giant robots suddenly appears and devastates the Earth. They call themselves "EX Tartaro" and their mission is to "purify the world". Every nation's armed forces were destroyed, not even nuclear weapons or star wars satellites had an effect on the four major robots- the Four Kyokuoh. A white wall, a shield, appeared in front of the Ex Tartaro while it attacked the city at breakneck speed. Three battle robots, the Dangaioh, defeated the enemy using well honed battle strategies. Sensing the strength of their enemy, the Ex Tartao united to form one giant robot. The three members of the Dangaioh team united into Dangaioh to reveal their true powers and eventually destroyed the invading force.

There is something in the darkness. You aren't alone. Are you safe?

Description

After intense battles, defeating Sendo, Makunouchi Ippo finally grasped the place as the Japanese Feather-Weight Champion. And so, Ippo changes from a "Challenger" to a "Champion", and the opponent of his first defence match is decided. The name of the challenger was Sanada Ikki. A fierce opponent who, aiming for a Dual Class Conquest, returned the title of Junior- Feather Class.

Sanada has a different face as a Current Medical University Student, which enables the intimate understanding of the human body, of where a punch should land to deprive stamina and to down the opponent with consistent damage. Furthermore, he coolly analyses his condition from a medical perspective, based on his amount of perspiration, breathing rate and heart rate, and is thus a boxer with one of the most intelligent tactics. On the other hand, Ippo, in front of his first defence match, not only is nervous but suffers progressively from fear and anxiety as he hears more about his opponent. Furthermore, Sanada Ikki's trainer was Hama Dankichi, the rival of Chairman Kamogawa when he was still active in the ring. Dankichi's special move in the days when he still fought, "Hien" ("Flying Swallow"), has been passed down to Ikki.

Encouraged by the predecessors of the gym Ippo belongs to, Takamura and Kimura, his past opponent and his mother, watched upon by Kumi who he secretly has feelings towards, the date of the first defence match draws closer. Ippo versus Sanada, and the settling of the scores of the coaches, Chairman Kamogawa and Hama Dankichi, each of their thoughts crosses over, and now, the day of the decisive match arrives!

Can Ippo dodge the "Hien" and find victory?

Human Scramble

Description

In the world of boxing champions, Noguchi Aki (Voice done by Sorimachi Takashi -- one of the most popular japanese TV drama actor) looks at the world from a different point of perspective as a boxer. Without any work, he makes great progress in the world of sports just like a professional and makes his way to the top. At this rate, surely he'll become the hero of the new century.

And even on the day when he successfully defended his title, he took for granted all the high class mansions he possessed. It's hard to think that he never went through anything serious or that it has nothing to do with guts or the fighting spirit... But that is just all a lie.

It was only because he went through vigorous training full of blood and sweat that he managed to make it to the top. His actions are only to hide his past... It is also the reason why there seems to be such a "wound" deeply engraved upon his face. The "wound" is somehow related to his mother, Mizuho...

Perky, spoiled blonde 12-year-old Ruridou Doris is an heiress to one of the largest advertising companies in Japan. So, naturally, she's sent to one of the most prestigious schools in Japan, one so large that it has its own subway system, and even a stadium for mecha combat. It just so happens that Doris, like one out of every ten people in her world, is a panzer, someone who transforms into a superhuman wielding a very large object that can be used as a weapon, like metal crab claws, vacuum cleaners, beam weapons, et cetera. Unfortunately one can not choose their appearance as a panzer, and not only does Doris have a tiny hand drill for a weapon, but she has another, larger one spinning on her head like a top! Needless to say, she does not look like heroine material, but as befitting the daughter of an advertising company, she must train beyond her abilities, and prove herself in panzer combat in the gigantic Central Stadium of her school, while risking such perils as school lunches, impromptu fan service photo shoots, and (worst of all) the utter lack of servants!

Jubei Ninpucho - Ryuhougyokuhen

Description

Edo Era, the world of the Tokugawa Shogunate. There were those who crept in the darkness. The Hiruko Ninja. They are fated to live in darkness, and die in darkness. However, if the power of the Dragon's Jewel, which has been handed down among the Hiruko since ancient times, is combined with that of the Priestess of Light, even the Hiruko can be bathed in light. There was one who, believing this, ran away from the Hiruko. And thus begins our story.

At the same time, a group of ninja called the Kimon Shu began targeting the stolen jewel as well as the Priestess of Light, who was living in a hidden village. The Kimon were working behind the scenes to bring about a revival of the Toyotomi. What is their intent? As the mystery deepens, the grand battle between the Hiruko and the Kimon over the treasure begins.

In that battle, there was a man who came in from rather unusual circumstances. His name: Kibagami Jubei. Having the ability to defeat enemies by using the art of Shippuu no Iai to create kamaitachi, he is a highly skilled "Ninja for Hire." Claiming he was just angry that they were disturbing his sleep, Jubei refuses to get involved in the fighting any further, but as fate would have it, he and the jewel and the Priestess of Light are brought together. Perhaps by coincidence or perhaps he was called by something, but in the hidden village he entered was the Priestess of Light, Shigure. The hidden village is destroyed in an attack by the Kimon Shu. Along with the aged ninja Dakuan and the boy ninja Tsubute who helped Shigure when she was being pursued, Jubei is pulled into the journey to protect Shigure. Having been told by Dakuan that she seems to have some connection with the Yagyuu Clan, Shigure sets off for the Yagyuu village, wanting to know the secrets of her own birth. The path is littered with the persistently pursuing Hiruko Ninja and Kimon Shu. One after the other, Jubei's Shippuu no Tachi cuts down the unearthly youjutsu that come after them.

Calling this violent battle to the death, what is the true power of the jewel and the Priestess of Light..!?

Description

In the first years of the 21st century, a new type of energy has been discovered. It has allowed for great advancements in cybernetic medicine, but the year is now 2019, and the world's cities have not always reaped the benefits. In the modern metropolis of Cyber-Wood, there is a vast slum known as Cancer, a lawless place filled with the poorest and most violent of the city's inhabitants. But there is a new project in the works to bring justice to Cancer: an experimental suit of armor that will tap into it's operator's spiritual energy and allow him to peacefully apprehend the city's criminals. Piloted by John Stalker, the initial test should have gone smoothly. But it seems that not everyone likes the way things are going. There is a certain cult (based in Cancer, of course) that intends to bring about the resurrection of the god of darkness, and what better conduit than poor John. When the test goes wrong and John is kidnapped shortly afterward, John's girlfriend and a hardened cop are on the trail, but what will they think when they find that their quarry has become an evil god?
