New Releases This Week: Speed Freaks and Gunplay Girls

This week's new releases range from the funny to the fantastical. Sabagebu will have you literally on the floor laughing with its fresh take on the "survival game" genre as one girl unwittingly gets roped into a club she doesn't want to be in. Hamatora will wow you with its crazy super-powered fights and engaging storyline revolving around humans called "Minimum Holders." Take your pick this week, or even better: get them both. ;) 

 

 

HAMATORA THE ANIMATION (SEASON 1)

Nowhere may seem like just another Yokohama cafe, but as with many of its employees, this apparently innocent eatery leads a double life. Because Nowhere is also where you can find Hamatora, the mysterious detective agency run by P.I.s who are Minimum Holders, individuals gifted with extraordinary powers and abilities. When a series of serial murders all turn out to involve other Minimum Holders, their kind may be targeted for extinction in HAMATORA – THE ANIMATION!
