New Release Tuesday – #HowGuiltyAreYou

Happy New Release Tuesday! We’re very excited today because it marks the release of our second Premium Edition box. That’s right! The Psycho-Pass Premium Edition is now available on Blu-ray. Take a look below to see what all is included in the release.

 

 

If you want the series, but not all the cool extra stuff that is included in the Premium Edition, don’t worry. We have our standard BD/DVD Combo release available today as well. Check out both editions here!

 

series synopsis:

Brace yourself for a hardboiled, sci-fi thriller from the creator of Madoka Magica and the studio that brought you Ghost in the Shell.

Welcome to a world where just thinking about a crime is enough to make you guilty. Bad intentions can no longer be hidden, and the police know exactly which tainted minds are about to cross over to the wrong side of the law. The great equalizer in the war on thugs is the Dominator, a futuristic weapon that can read minds and assess the risk that a citizen will turn criminal. Cops work in teams made up of Enforcers and Inspectors. Enforcers take out the bad guys, Inspectors stop their partners from going rogue, and the all-powerful Sibyl System keeps a watchful eye on us all. Society is paralyzed by its deepest, darkest desires, and trial by jury has been replaced by the wrath of the Dominator. Welcome to the future. How guilty are you?
 
 

 

For the fan service aficionados out there, Ikki Tousen Xtreme Xecutor & Shugaku Toshi Keppu-roku OVA is now available on DVD. You get all 12 episodes plus the OVA in one box.

 

series synopsis:
Get pumped for a new season of full frontal fights busting out between student bodies in warfare! Round four of the titillating action epic delivers double the ditz when the master of school uniform disasters gets a disciple! Word of a tournament gets around, and Hakufu’s ready to rumble. But training a pupil is tiring work—and catching some random ZZZs puts a delay on her dreams of combat conquest. When a sinister force sabotages the rival schools into submission, the warriors’ fates reveal themselves in gravity-defying fisticuffs. Can Hakufu muscle her way to victory and save her friends from repeating their fatal past? Only the power of the dragons can tell!

 

Will you be picking up one of these titles today?

series synopsis:
Get ready for Psycho-Pass, a hardboiled, gun-slinging sci-fi series from the creator of Madoka Magica and the studio that brought you Ghost in the Shell.

In the future, even just thinking about a crime is enough to make you guilty – and justice is dispensed from the barrel of a gun. Detectives work in teams made up of Enforcers and Inspectors. Enforcers take out the bad guys, and Inspectors make sure their partners don’t cross the fine line between good and evil. The great equalizer in the war against thugs is the Dominator, a futuristic weapon that can read minds and assess the probability that a citizen will turn criminal. There are no trials. Only Enforcers, Inspectors, and the Dominator. Commit a crime in your mind – and the Dominator will make sure you pay the ultimate price.

 

Which Dragon Ball Z Character Are You?

 

Quizzes have taken over my Facebook feed recently, and I haven’t paid much attention until today. Buzzfeed recently posted the “Which Dragon Ball Z Character Are You?” quiz, and you know it’s accurate because I got Vegeta. That’s right, the Prince of all the Saiyans himself.

 

No, it’s not rigged, and I got Vegeta on the first try. I have witnesses.

 

So, which Dragon Ball Z character are you? Click here to take Buzzfeed’s quiz.

While Goku recovers from injuries suffered during battle with the Saiyans, his friends begin their perilous quest for the Namekian Dragon Balls! Awaiting their arrival on Planet Namek is the powerful Ginyu Force – and the vile monster Frieza!

Make room on your shelves because the Dragon Ball Z Season Sets are finally on Blu-ray! We embarked on a frame-by-frame restoration process to remove any blemishes, tape marks, and foreign bodies that might have tarnished your viewing experience. All three audio tracks have been re-mastered in the interest of noise reduction and superior sound quality. The bolder, more vibrant color of this ultimate Dragon Ball Z release closely mirrors the visual aesthetics of today’s entertainment. Lastly, we undertook a precise shot-by-shot reframing of the entire series to create a modern HD widescreen presentation of this legendary fan favorite!

Attack on Titan Burgers are Colossal

 

So, you know those Titan sized burgers that Lotteria (a fast food chain in Japan) was advertising last month? Well, they’re here. Well, not here here, but they’re available in Japan now and they look…interesting. Lotteria has launched their special Attack on Titan meal deals. You get one cheese burger tower plus an Attack on Titan themed keychain and a specially designed redeemable burger ticket.

 

Diners can choose between a five-patty burger tower, a seven-patty tower, or a 10-patty tower. All three options are the same price, which is roughly around $20.

 

Here are the advertised images:

 

 

And here’s what it really looks like:
