Hiiro no Kakera - The Tamayori Princess Saga Season 1 DVD Complete (Hyb)$59.98 $44.99
Every girl dreams of being an enchanted princess, but how many stop to think about all the grim and horrible things that happen in fairy tales? That's a lesson Tamaki learns all too graphically when she's attacked on the way to her grandmother's house by creatures she thought only existed in myths! Fortunately, she's rescued by an extraordinary young man: one who's not only part demon, but her future classmate as well, and one of the protectors that Tamaki will need if she's going to fulfill her destiny as a Tamayori princess.
Certain Scientific Railgun, A Season 1 DVD Part 1 (Hyb) Limited Edition$64.98 $38.99*
Misaka's electro-manipulation abilities make her a rock star in Academy City. The techno-metropolis is packed with supernaturally powered students known as espers, including Misaka's flirty friend and roommate, Kuroko. She uses her teleportation skills as a member of the Judgment law enforcement team, fighting crime alongside her fellow agent Uiharu. Joined by their friend Saten, a spunky Level 0 esper, Misaka, Kuroko, and Uiharu have a blast taking on danger whenever and wherever it arises.
Place to Place DVD Complete Collection (S)$49.98 $29.99*
Everyone has a circle of friends they hang out with. But even within a small group there are smaller groups of friends, best friends and - here's where it gets complicated - boyfriends and girlfriends. Sometimes relationships just develop in a way where you're not exactly sure what you are to the other person, which is the problem Tsumiki has when it comes to Io.
Going by the Book DVD (S) LiveAction Special Edition (2-disc)$29.99 $22.49
Sam-po's banks are increasingly targeted by armed robbers, and local law enforcement's efforts to address the issue have been nonexistent. Incoming police chief Lee Seung-woo initiates an ambitious plan to send a message to the criminals and win the confidence of the townspeople. Every member of his force will participate in a "Bank Robbery Simulation." By-the-book patrolman Jung Do-man is dismayed to find he has been personally selected for this role, but when the dedicated officer is told to "do his best," what was meant to be a simple role-playing exercise quickly spirals into a nationally televised event!
