synopsis

Prepare to embark on a horrifying voyage into the heart of darkness!

While drifting through haunted waters, the Straw Hats encounter a ghost ship inhabited by a walking, talking skeleton. Luffy quickly befriends the ghastly newcomer, but the rest of his mates want nothing to do with this panty-obsessed bag of bones. Before the mystery of the seagoing skeleton can be deciphered, the Straw Hats find themselves trapped within the terrifying walls of Thriller Bark! The situation gets even spookier as our heroes encounter invisible fiends, a graveyard of the undead, possessed paintings, and a zombie samurai! To make matters worse, Zoro and Sanji suddenly vanish – and Chopper, Usopp, and Nami get trapped inside a coffin. While his crew flounders in this floating house of horrors, Luffy sets his sights on a showdown with the man behind the madness: the shadow-stealing monster Gecko Moria!

synopsis

Get ready for a boatload of goose bumps as the Thriller Bark spookfest continues!

Luffy’s impulsive attack on Gecko Moria ends up costing the rubber-man something he can’t live without – his shadow! When Zoro and Sanji find themselves in the same boat, the three fierce fighters must find a way to recapture what was lost, or face the possibility of death by sunlight. Luckily, their skeleton friend, Brook, knows the trick to defeating Moria’s zombie army, and he’ll gladly share the secret in exchange for a little help defeating a sinister zombie samurai! Meanwhile, Nami is kidnapped by an undead scoundrel who wants to make her his wife, and Usopp must rely on his natural state of negativity if he hopes to survive his encounter with a gothic Lolita and her ghostly minions. Hair raising thrills are the story of the hour as the Straw Hats attempt to escape Thriller Bark with their shadows – and souls – intact!

synopsis

Now on Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack for the first time!

Science and sorcery make for an explosive mix in A Certain Magical Index, an enthralling experiment in sci-fi adventure from the studio that brought you Toradora and Slayers Revolution!

Kamijo is a student in Academy City, where people use science to develop supernatural abilities. The guy’s got a lot of heart – luckily for a young nun named Index. She’s on the run from a sorcery society that covets the astonishing 103,000 volumes of magical knowledge stored in her memory. When Index stumbles into Kamijo’s life, she find a faithful friend and protector, and while Kamijo’s easily the weakest kid in Academy City, he’s got something else going for him: the Imagine Breaker, an unexplainable power stored in his right hand that negates the powers of others. With scientists and sorcerers attacking from all sides, the Imagine Breaker will definitely come in handy – but it’s Kamijo’s loyalty to Index that will be his greatest weapon in the fight to keep her safe.

A Certain Scientific Railgun S synopsis:
Something sinister is growing in Academy City. The shadows are filled with whispers of a project to clone one of the super-powered students known as espers. High-ranking master of electricity Mikoto Misaka laughs off these stories until she comes face to face with a copy of herself. The duplicates are real, and are being mass-produced from Misaka’s DNA, making each one of them a little piece of her.

These clones—her sisters—are being systematically murdered in a series of experiments designed to turn a sadistic killer into the strongest esper in history. Misaka vows to save her copies and destroy the project, but this might be one fight she can’t win alone. High-energy battles and intense action explode in this continuation of the Railgun series from the creator of A Certain Magical Index.
