New Release Tuesday – Code:Breaker, DBZ, and Lost Girl

Code:Breaker is available now on BD/DVD Combo. This series comes from the director of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. So, how many lives can a hero take before he becomes a villain?

 

series synopsis:

 

Rei Ogami doesn’t have a problem with killing. As a Code:Breaker—a super-powered assassin employed by a secret government organization—he works outside of the law, existing in the gray area between right and wrong. When Rei gets an assignment, criminals are cremated in a blaze of blue fire. That is, until a classmate named Sakura witnesses his fatal flames in action and makes it her mission to keep him from killing again.

 

As Sakura becomes entrenched in Rei’s world of cruelty, mayhem, and violence, the line between good and evil begins to blur. When another Code:Breaker goes rogue and the remaining assassins assemble, murder might be the only way to make things right.

Re: Club Guidelines

It has come to our attention that your club—officially formed with the goal of “making friends”—has been taking part in questionable behaviors on campus. We’d like to remind you that none of the following are approved club activities:

-          Stalking (especially taking candid photos of your peers)

-          Playing inappropriate video games

-          Watching anime involving adult themes

-          The creation of time machines

While we applaud your creative efforts in making a movie about intergalactic samurai robot wars, please note that the costumes do not fit our dress code. In addition, we have reports of brewing drama between Yozora and Sena regarding Kodaka—including the fact that an engagement has taken place. Please fill out required paperwork if the chapel needs to be reserved.
