The OVA adaptation High School DxD follows the 2012 TV anime series created by studio TNK, based on a light novel series authored by Ichiei Ishibumi and illustrated by Miyama-Zero – whose 13th volume is bundling the OVA on Blu-ray. The original story follows Issei Hyoudou, a dim-witted, lecherous second-year high school student who is killed by a girl on his first date ever. Issei is reincarnated as a devil, and from that day forward, he serves as an underling of Riasu, a high-level devil who is also the prettiest girl on Issei’s campus.

The OVA adaptation of Eureka Seven AO follows the 2012 TV anime series and is released as a hybrid Blu-ray disc together with a PS3 game adaptation. The anime is once again created by studio Bones, following their original sci-fi mecha anime series Eureka Seven from 2005, and the 2009 anime film Eureka Seven: Pocket Full of Rainbows. The new story is set in 2025, on Okinawa’s isolated island of Iwado, which has seen a growing movement advocating a return to an autonomous government. Ao Fukai, a 13-year-old boy with a missing father, lives on the island with an old doctor named Toshio and is about to enter middle school. Ao’s mother was taken away 10 years ago by unknown individuals. Naru Arata, Ao’s 13-year-old childhood friend and the story’s heroine, lives with her father, older sister, and grandmother. She has a “Yuta” power awakened within her due to an incident when she was young. A mysterious entity called “Secret” suddenly appears and launches an attack on the Scub Coral lifeform on the island. In his fervent desire to protect the island, Ao launches a certain military FP called “Nirvash” aboard a Japanese military transport.

A beautiful, silver-haired student named Chihaya Kisakinomiya is transfering into the all-female student body at Seio. The catch is that Chihaya is a boy.

The two decide to form Rinjinbu, a club for people with hardly any friends.

The TV anime series Inu x Boku SS is created by David Production, based on Cocoa Fujiwara’s supernatural shounen manga that began serialization in May 2009. Torn between the desire to live on her own and a crippling fear of being alone and unprotected, Shirakiin Ririchiyo’s dream of independence had long seemed impossible and she seemed doomed to the life of a secluded shut-in. Until, that is, she arrived at the mysterious mansion known as Ayakashi Kan, where every potential resident must pass a strict series of tests before being allowed into the Haven. The drawback to this private Eden, however, is that every resident must also have a personal Secret Service agent accompanying them at all times, a restriction that Ririchiyo initially fights… until she begins to suspect that the agent assigned to her, Soushi Miketsukami, may be far more than he appears to be. Could the “guardian angel” looking over Ririchiyo’s shoulder be more than just foxy looking and actually a fox spirit? As it turns out, that’s not the only mystery that needs to be solved!

  • Release Date: September 26
  • Studio: David Production
  • Note: Unaired episode; bundled w/ BD vol.7
