300 years ago, in the ice-shrouded land of Siberia, Jubei Yagyu waged a brutal battle against Kitaretsusai of the Northern Yagyu clan.  The duel resulted in Jubei Yagyu’s daughter Freesia being trapped and frozen in suspended animation.  As the centuries pass and global warming accelerates, Freesia is liberated from her icy tomb and moves to modern day Japan. She appears as a middle school transfer student and befriends Jiyuu Nanohana who is oblivious to Freesia’s true motive- to gain possession of Jiyuu’s highly coveted Lovely Eye Patch that once belonged to Jubei Yagyu!

ZEBRAMAN (115 mins.)

It’s 2010 and Shinichi (Sho Aikawa) is a down-trodden third-grade teacher who gets little respect from his own family let alone from his wise-ass students. Back in 1978 he became obsessed with a TV superhero named Zebraman, a show that was cancelled after only a few episodes. Since the Zebram show was set in 2010, Shinichi decides the time is right to make a crude Zebraman costume and slink around the city at night to fulfill his childhood fantasy. His seemingly harmless escapism takes a sudden detour into harsh reality when he runs into a strange half-crab, half-man who was Zebraman’s arch enemy from the old show!  Soon the saga of Zebraman and his war against the usual gang of strange alien enemies seems downright prophetic! Shinichi vows to fulfill the prophecy and become the super-hero of his childhood to protect the planet from the marauding menace!  Special features include trailers, theme song, photo gallery and more! Not rated. English dubbed  and with the original Japanese audio and English subtitles.  From Takashi Miike, one of Japan’s most prolific contemporary directors whose credits include Audition, Ichi The Killer, Great Yokai War, Fudoh and many more!


Two college girls, Taylor and Elizabeth, travel to a remote island for a weekend vacation getaway. As they drive the winding backwoods roads leading to a desolate lake house owned by Elizabeth’s father, they begin to feel uneasy as an unmarked white van starts to follow and stalk them.  Little do they suspect that this is just the beginning of a nightmare thrill-ride straight to hell as three masked psychopaths appear and serve as their unfriendly welcoming committee!  Bonus features include a still gallery, trailers, a behind-the-scenes featurette and a cast and crew audio commentary. From Justin Russell, the director of “The Sleeper.” “Not unlike the original, Kite Liberator is very much a Yasuomi Umetsu project through and through.”-

(2 episodes/ 50 mins.)
Absolutely not for children!

This OVA starts with the premise that the butler did, in fact, do it!  Following in the tradition of his butler grandfather, Katsuragi reports for duty as the new butler at the esteemed Tsubarateras estate for his summer holiday.  One of his many household duties entails personally seeing to the needs and demands of the spoiled and insatiable Lady Kohota.  Without delay, the sexually ravenous debutante takes full advantage of her new manservant and puts him to a test that wildly exceeds all proper butler protocol! As their relationship grows romantically deeper, will her stuffy class-conscious parents ever approve of a young high society woman cavorting with the hired help?
