Medaka Box: Complete Collection (Sentai Filmworks, TV-14)"Medaka Kurokami seems impossibly perfect. Not only is she one of the best in her class in most academics and sports, she's also beautiful, sweet, and caring, so no one is particularly surprised when one of her first acts as the newly elected Student Council President is to create a suggestion box for odd problems that need to be addressed. However, what no one expects is for the box's submissions to start revealing evidence of a sinister conspiracy… one that directly targets the students of Hakoniwa Academy! As what seemed like a simple way to help others continues to expose new and shocking revelations, Medaka, her self-appointed protector Zenkichi, and their recruits find themselves left with no other option: it's time to start laying down some serious smackdown in the ultimate Student Council-endorsed battle royale!"

Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan (VIZ Media, TV-MA) "Rohan’s ongoing quest to infuse his manga with a dose of “reality” drags him into a surreal world of the macabre! Gruesome revelations of the flesh and the supernatural morph into distorted forms of etiquette and death. A killer who guzzles the blood of her decaying lover.

When Will Ayumu Make His Move? (Sentai Filmworks, TV-14) "Ayumu was a Kendo competitor in middle school, so everyone assumed that he'd join the Kendo club for his first year in high school. Instead, he becomes involved with an entirely different sort of activity with a Second-Year girl… an activity famous for becoming increasingly complex the longer it goes on! We're talking about Shogi, of course, the board game that's often referred to as Japanese chess. But the game itself soon becomes a problem, because while Ayumu finds himself increasingly attracted to Urushi, he's also sworn not to tell her until he's won a match against her… and Urushi's REALLY good at Shogi! So now they're stuck in a loop, caught up in ancient game that's far more complicated than chess… and also playing a lot of Shogi as well… wondering when will ayumu make his move?"
