Tuesday New Releases: Cross Ange: Rondo of Angel and Dragon Collection 1, And Yet the Town Moves
Tuesday New Releases: June 21, 2016
Hotori loves mysteries, but there's one she just can't solve: Why does the solution to one problem inevitably seem to lead to another? Like when Hotori has to start working at the Seaside Maid Café after school to pay off a debt and her friend Toshiko fortunately knows exactly how a Maid Café should be run. That's fortunate since Hotori has no clue, but unfortunate in that Toshiko has no interest in working there. UNTIL she discovers that Hotori's friend Hiroyuki is a regular. Which SEEMS fortunate. Except that Hotori doesn't know that, while Toshiko likes Hiroyuki, Hiroyuki secretly likes Hotori, while Hotori secretly has a crush on… No, no more spoilers! But if that's not enough drama, there's work, angst with a certain math teacher, table tennis between her classmates, her younger brother versus the school's bad girl… And yet, even though everything seems like it's going to crash at any moment, somehow Hotori's life keeps going hilariously forward in AND YET THE TOWN MOVES!
Genres: Comedy, Slice of Life
Betrayed by her brother. Stripped of her birthright. Declared an abomination. For the girl once known as Princess Angelise Ikaruga Misurugi, the nightmare has just begun. Because not having the ability to use magic makes her less than human in the eyes of the law, and now she's been exiled to certain death as a slave soldier in a war against draconic invaders! But the people and land that cast her out have made a lethal error. The girl now known as Ange is no longer an innocent Princess being lead to rape and slaughter. She's learned the hidden truth about the world she thought she knew. She's discovered that she's willing to kill in order to survive. And they've given her a weapon. The studio behind GUNDAM, ESCAFLOWNE, and COWBOY BEBOP unleashes a stunning new epic in animation as giant robots, a Princess, and dragons engage in the ultimate duel to the death in CROSS ANGE: Rondo of Angels and Dragons!
