Summer is coming early to Sentai Filmworks... kind of! Today marks the official Blu-Ray release of the science-fiction romance Waiting in the Summer. However, if a Rom-Com about a red haired alien sweetheart isn't to your liking, we also have the release of the much anticipated drama When They Cry. Lastly, if you value your fingernails, we have the release of Sentai Selects title Those Who Hunt Elves!
Tales of traveling to alternate dimensions are fun to watch in the movies, but when you get stuck in one yourself, it's not quite as much fun. So when strongman Junpei, actress Airi, and teenage gun fanatic Ritsuko find themselves transported to a world populated by elves and other mystical beings, all they want to do is go home. Unfortunately, after putting their trust in the scatterbrained sorceress Celcia, the spell to send them back to Earth ends up getting scattered to the winds, with different parts attaching themselves to the bodies of Elves all across the planet. Now the only way to put it back together is to travel around the world, convincing elves to take off all their clothes for a "spell check"! Fortunately, the team also has access to a T-74 tank, so it's time for the weirdest road trip ever. Warning! There are naked elves ahead as the ultimate fanboy fantasy is launched in THOSE WHO HUNT ELVES!
