The prize that awaits them, Century Soup, is among the rarest of gourmet treasures – and the most divine delicacy ever to grace a bowl and spoon.

Flying Sea Lions and Air Gorillas plague their journey, and in order to savor the sweet taste of success, our heroes will have to take their teamwork to the next level – forever cementing their status as lifelong partners in the pursuit of culinary bliss!
Did you hear about Yamada? You know the chick. Pretty face, nice body, wears a plaid skirt every day? Well, I heard from my lab partner that “little miss virgin” wants to have sex with a hundred different dudes before she graduates. I’m not even kidding. That hot mess totally thinks she can devirginize a hundred guys even though she’s never even French kissed! She’s must be in heat. I even saw her flirting with that dork Kosuda at lunch today. No joke. She was smiling and winking and rubbing her lady-bumps all up against his shoulder. It was pathetic! I mean – don’t get me wrong – I’d probably let her sex me up and stuff, but she’d have to practice first. I like my ladies experienced, and she can’t even give it away.

When last we saw dear Sebastian, he was poised to feast on the ripened soul of his young master. Unfortunately for the debonair demon, there’s a new butler in town…
Enter Claude Faustus, a malevolent manservant uninspired by the drab flavor of his own contracted master, Alois Trancy. This pedestrian lad holds no allure for Claude, so the bespectacled butler sets his sights on a finer delicacy from the menu of the damned. None other than Ciel Phantomhive. And so begins a devilish dance of death starring crow and spider. The demonic duel rages beyond the limits of good taste, culminating in a debaucherous maze of madness pitting butler against butler. Sebastian and Claude: two ravenous rakehells filled with the power of darkness and locked in a macabre battle for the soiled soul of the young master they so long to devour.

Happy New Release Tuesday! Today the Flame Haze joins the ranks of our S.A.V.E. (Super Amazing Value Edition) line. Shakugan no Shana Season One is available now on BD/DVD Combo for a new affordable price! Click here to order.
From the studio behind Toradora! and Okami-san and Her Seven Companions comes the iconic series centered around the heated bond and supernatural battles of two friends from two very different worlds.
Wielding a blazing sword, Shana is a fiery huntress whose sole purpose is to fight demon-like beings that consume human lives. To reduce the impact on the human realm, Shana turns the slain into shadows of their former selves. Once a flame that represents their remaining life goes out, they fade from existence. This should be Yuji’s fate, but when he discovers he holds a special power that ignites a newfound strength in Shana, they join forces in her ongoing mission to maintain the balance between the ordinary world and the supernatural.
Love is in the air, and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. To get you in mood, check out today’s new release–Kamisama Kiss!
Nanami was just a normal high school girl down on her luck until a stranger’s lips marked her as the new Land God and turned her world upside down. Now, she’s figuring out the duties of a deity with the help of Tomoe, a reformed fox demon who reluctantly becomes her familiar in a contract sealed with a kiss. The new responsibilities—and boys—are a lot to handle, like the crow demon masquerading as a gorgeous pop idol and the adorable snake spirit who’s chosen the newly minted god to be his bride. As the headstrong Tomoe tries to whip her into shape, Nanami finds that love just might have cute, pointed fox ears. With romance in the air, will the human deity be able to prove herself worthy of her new title?
