Synopsis

The pulse-pounding action continues in this thrilling second season of the eye-popping sci-fi series that Sankaku Complex calls ”seriously hot.”

Satellizer el Bridget and some of the most powerful – and desirable – Pandoras in the world are summoned to a secret base in the wilds of Alaska. These gorgeous warriors arrive primed for battle, but they soon discover the true purpose for their presence: to assist the clandestine Chevalier organization in forging a new breed of soldier – E-Pandoras! Once normal girls, these eager beauties volunteered to have their bodies genetically-enhanced in order to join the fight against the deadly alien invaders plaguing the planet. But there’s more to becoming a superhuman battle vixen than tattered uniforms and sultry slugfests. Rumors of heinous experimentation haunt the E-Pandora project, and only Satellizer and her loyal companion Kazuya can unravel the mystery before it’s too late!

Back in the present, Luffy races to rescue Robin from the clutches of Spandam the madman, Nami saves Sanji from a beating at the hands of a bathing beauty, and Chopper goes berserk after eating one too many Rumble Balls during his showdown with a samurai lion! Meanwhile, Franky teaches a zipper-mouthed freak a thing or two about the punching power of cola, Zoro’s swordplay is hampered by being handcuffed to Usopp, and Sanji reappears just in time to introduce his wolfish opponent to the burning power of the devil’s leg!

Available Now! – Buy here on DVD

 

Finally, the original cyberpunk classic is available in one comprehensive collection. One of the first productions to enlist famous American actors such as Kiefer Sutherland [24], multiple award winner Bryan Cranston [Breaking Bad], and Juliette Lewis [Natural Born Killers], and created by a team of anime masterminds—including writers Akinori Endo [Battle Angel] and Chiaki Konaka [Serial Experiments: Lain, Hellsing]—Armitage III: The Complete Saga is a must-have for anime and sci-fi devotees.

 

Armitage is a brash cybernetic cop who sports a racy wardrobe and an attitude to match. Patrolling an unruly metropolis on Mars, she’s got a grudge against a society where androids are at the mercy of unsympathetic humans. In the original OVAs—also coalesced as the feature film Poly Matrix—Armitage risks everything to hunt down a vicious android killer and solve the secret to her existence. The sequel, Dual Matrix, finds her in an over-charged battle to save her loved ones from an obsessive doctor and his deadly Armitage replicas.
