Blu-ray MSRP: $54.97 U.S. / $63.99 CAN · Available December 3rd

As Ichigo fears the growing strength of the Hollow within him, the Soul Society detects an attack on the World of the Living by Arrancars—Hollows with Soul Reaper powers created by the traitor Sosuke Aizen! Ichigo rushes to the aid of his friends, but his Hollow interferes. Can Ichigo master his inner self in time to help defeat the threat of the Arrancars? And who are the mysterious Visoreds who are interested in recruiting him? Set 5 features 28 episodes on four Blu-ray discs (Eps. 112-139). Bonus features include a VIZ staff commentary track that is available for select episodes, digital art gallery, and clean opening and endings.

Unfortunately, we watched Bleach in the subbed format, but if you like the dubb this is a great buy!!

 

 

JujutsuKaisen-GN01-3D

JUJUTSU KAISEN By Gege Akutami

MSRP: $9.99 U.S. / $12.99 CAN · Rated ‘T+’ for Older Teens

Available December 3rd 

In a world where cursed spirits feed on unsuspecting humans, fragments of the legendary and feared demon Ryomen Sukuna were lost and scattered about. Should any demon consume Sukuna’s body parts, the power they gain could destroy the world as we know it. Fortunately, there exists a mysterious school of Jujutsu Sorcerers who exist to protect the precarious existence of the living from the supernatural!

This title we’re extremely excited for because we’ve been hearing great things coming from the land of whispers. Finally, we’re able to support this title in the U.S. with an official release. Shonen manga just keeps getting diversified and better and better. We will absolutely get to check out this manga and give a review.

 

NoLongerHuman-3D

 

NO LONGER HUMAN By Junji Ito

MSRP: $34.99 U.S. / $46.99 CAN · Rated ‘M’ for Mature Readers

Available December 17th 

Plagued by maddening anxiety, the terrible disconnect between his own concept of happiness and the joy of the rest of the world, Yozo Oba plays the clown in his dissolute life, holding up a mask for those around him as he spirals ever downward, locked arm-in-arm with death.

 

Osamu Dazai’s immortal―and supposedly autobiographical―work of Japanese literature, is perfectly adapted here into a manga by Junji Ito. The imagery wrenches open the text of the novel one line at a time to sublimate Yozo’s mental landscape into something even more delicate and grotesque. This is the ultimate in art by Ito, proof that nothing can surpass the terror of the human psyche.

Horror anime and manga is just so great and popular. Not a horror fan but if you are what a time to be alive. This is some of the best horror manga and anime you’ll find around. Junji Ito is like the R.L. Stine of our time!! (Goosebumps)
