Naruto Shippuden: Set 12
Manufacturer: Viz Media Brand: VIZ MEDIA
Naruto Shippuden Uncut Set 12 (DVD)]]> Episodes 141 through 153 make up the second half of season six of the popular ninja adventure Naruto Shippuden. After his climactic duel with his brother Itachi, the badly wounded Sasuke is rescued by Madara, the masked leader of the evil Akatsuki--and the only other living member of the Uchiha Clan. Madara tells him that everything he knew about Itachi was false: Itachi killed the rest of their clan not in a homicidal rage, but at the orders of the leaders of the Hidden Leaf Village. But he could not bring himself to kill his beloved younger brother. Despite his injuries, Sasuke leads his Akatsuki team against the annoying rapper Killer Bee, whose body contains an eight-tailed demon that manifests itself as a bizarre ox-octopus hybrid. While Sasuke recovers from this taxing battle, the filmmakers introduce the "Rokubi and the Kinjutsu" arc, another digression from the main storyline. Naruto, Sakura, Sai, and Captain Yamato meet Hotaru, a young woman whose family created a Forbidden Jutsu that can destroy an entire village. Accompanying her is Utakata, a rogue ninja who uses a strange jutsu involving bubbles. Despite some exotic techniques, it feels like a typical Naruto subplot involving clan loyalties, betrayal, a power-mad villain, and the overriding importance of friendship. The main story picks up again in episodes 152 and 153, which aired as an hour-long special in Japan. Naruto is heartbroken to learn of the death of his beloved m...
Serial Experiments Lain: Complete Series - Classic (Blu-ray/DVD Combo)
Manufacturer: Funimation Model: 28651631
Acclaimed artist Yoshitoshi Abe (Haibane Renmei, Texhnolyze) brings to life the existential classic that paved the way for blockbuster films such as The Matrix. Close the World. Open the Next. Decades before the internet was something people carried around in their pockets, these words introduced anime fans to a surreal existence where computer monitors served as portals to brave new worlds. Serial Experiments: Lain and its deceptively â€œordinaryâ€ title character redefined an entire generationâ€™s concept of the world wide web, prompting us all to suspiciously take note of humming power lines and central processing units. Follow along as fourteen year old Lain â€“ driven by the abrupt suicide of a classmate â€“ logs on to the Wired and promptly loses herself in a twisted mass of hallucinations, memories, and interconnected-psyches. Close the World. Open the Next. Itâ€™s as simple as the flip of a switch.

Infinite Stratos II
Manufacturer: Section23 Films Brand: Section23 Films
There are probably worse things that could have happened to Ichika Orimura than being the only guy in a training academy filled with military hardware and several battalions of highly competitive and extremely boy-crazed teenage girls. And being caught in a five-girl crossfire between his obsessive childhood friends Lingyin and Houki and the even more zealous British, German and French pilots Cecillia, Laura and Charlotte, at least turned out to be survivable. But surely, Ichika's finally put all his female troubles behind him, right? Oh don't be ridiculous. None of the femmes fatales in his life have canceled their conquest scenarios; there's double trouble arriving in the form of the Sarashiki sisters; the rest of the school is still waiting in line to take their shot; and when a whole new set of female pilots working for the bad guys shows up with a new generation of stolen IS hardware, things are about to get utterly lethal! The mayhem continues, the mecha runs amok, the hormones run wild and the maiden's behavior becomes even less maidenly as Ichika gets schooled for a second spectacular semester in INFINITE STRATOS 2!

Naruto Shippuden: Set 11
Manufacturer: Viz Media Brand: Warner Manufacturing Model: 25082028
Naruto Shippuden Uncut Set 11 (DVD)]]> The episodes in this set bridge the end of season five and the beginning of season six of the long-running hit Naruto Shippuden. Episodes 127 through 133 (the "Jiraiya's Prophecy" arc) show Naruto's "Pervy Sage" teacher as a student, and as an adult facing down some former pupils who joined the evil Akatsuki. It's fun to see a young Jiraiya making the exact same mistakes Naruto would make years later, but these episodes, like the "Kakashi Gaiden Special" early in season five, are essentially filler, and fans may grow impatient with them. They don't advance the main storyline, which has finally reached the confrontation between Sasuke and his older brother Itachi, a battle the story has been building toward since the first Naruto series. Itachi attempts to steal Sasuke's eyes to perfect his powerful Mangekyo Sharingan technique in a grotesque prelude to the face-off. Director Hayao Date and his crew employ dramatic fire and lightning effects to make the duel between the Uchiha brothers as exciting as it should be, and voice actors Yuri Lowenthal (Sasuke) and Crispin Freeman (Itachi) bring an effective sense of hatred and shattered affection to the dialogue. But the aftermath of the duel suggests Itachi's vicious abuse of his brother and his murderous rampage that destroyed the Uchiha clan may have not been the product of megalomaniacal cruelty. Fans have been waiting for years for this magical, fratricidal fight. But despite the dramatic ...
