When you buy from Count D, what you get may be what he thinks you deserve rather than what you want. So even if that rare rabbit does somehow look just like your lost child, perhaps you'd be safer shopping somewhere else. That's certainly what Detective Orcot of the LAPD would advise, as nightmarish things seem to keep happening to the shop's customers.

A second girl breaks into the house, demanding something called an "extractor". And both girls can inexplicably see Misao! As more people target the package and Tomo, the mystery only deepens. What's in the package, why are so many people after it, and is it connected to the plane crash or something even more sinister? The shocking answers will be unleashed in ASURA CRYIN'!

When your commanding officers send you into a fight that can't be won, or set goals that can only be achieved through massive sacrifice, then a decision has to be made. Are you going to be a hero?

    Those Who Hunt Elves would be tempting if Sentai got better at encoding SD on BD. It's a late '90s Group TAC show, so I doubt it will ever be remastered from the original film materials, assuming it wasn't edited on videotape.

      Pretty weak and light slate. Maybe love stage???

        Glad to see Cutie Honey Universe isn't as expensive as I thought it would be (considering they got it from Pony Canyon, had a reason to fear there) so I'll be getting the LE.

        As for Elfen Lied, WTK , could you contact and ask if this is a new disc and if it includes the OVA? The last release had issues with the English dub's mixing and the runtime on their website implies that the OVA is included while the runtime here and at Right Stuf implies that it isn't.

          I suppose this is an okay slate, but it is disappointing that there is only one 2018 show from Sentai. I hope Umaru-chan R and/or Tadakoi show up in August. I might get the Cutie Honey Universe LE if I manage to forgive the show for being mediocre.

              Probably still won't get anything from this month, but Elfen Lied and Love Stage!! have small chances.

                Was there anything to uncensor for Cutie Honey Universe?

                  I didn't watch on HiDive but I heard there was certain areas that were blurred. Not too surprising though considering this show's main TV broadcast was on prime time.

                    It's a pretty decent slate there, far better than June's to say the least. Nevertheless, I probably won't be getting anything from this month's solicitations with the Cutie Honey Universe LE and Love Stage being the only longshot possibilities.

                      Nothing for me this month. Surprised to see a LE for Elfen Lied 7 years after the BD, though I'll stick with my BD set for it.

                        Go to the Japanese Pony Canyon site for their home video release (WTK has a link to it in the JP BD & DVD forum, Cutie Honey Universe thread); based on paragraph 1 and the screenshots, it does indeed look like the home video release was uncensored, with nipples being added.
