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!

ARMITAGE III – Movie Collection

Anime Classics

 

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.
