Sentai Filmworks Sets July Anime Slate

Angel Beats on DVD and Blu-ray plus more

Sentai Filmworks has let loose with its latest round of solicitations, this time for July where there's usually some good stuff involved since companies want to have titles available for the big summer convention season to be able to sell directly to the fans.  Sentai certainly pleases here for people as Angel Beats gets its DVD and Blu-ray releases out at the end of the month (though we suspect you'll be able to find them closer to Anime Expo as well) while also announcing the next season of Hidmari Sketch coming out. Add in the second half of Allison & Lillia and you've got a nice sample of titles. What's surprising is the addition of the Orphen Complete collection which brings both seasons of the series together as ADV Films did in the past, and it's likely just a repackaging of what we've seen before. But it is very welcome to see Orphen back on the shelves, so to speak.

Product details follow, in order of release

Coming July 2011

SYNOPSIS: When Lillia learns that she'll be going on vacation with her best friend Treize instead of her mom, she's not sure how she should feel about it. Lillia's parents aren't exactly typical, having saved the world… oh, a dozen or so times. And Treize is a member of a royal family, so the restrictions on what he can do are a royal pain. But still, once she's actually on vacation, she starts to have a good time. Until - people start trying to kill them; they end up with a planeload of orphans; it turns out that Trieze is actually a PRINCE; and did we mention that people are trying to kill them? There are secret identities, aerial dogfights and twisting plots galore ahead as Lillia inherits the family talent for being in the right place at the wrong time in ALLISON & LILLIA - Generation 2!


Title: HIDAMARI SKETCH: HOSHIMITTSU

Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 350 min.
Street Date: 7/19/2011
Format: DVD
Language: Japanese with English Subtitles
SRP: $49.98


SYNOPSIS: Some say that life is like an unfolding tapestry, but living at the Hidamari Apartments is more like being part of a patchwork quilt, one that constantly changes as bits and pieces of the lives and dreams of the young artists who make this extraordinary residence their home are added to the ever-expanding pattern. When we first met Yuno, she'd just been accepted to the prestigious Yamabuki Art School and it was up to her new neighbors at Hidamari to help her find her way in the big scary world. Now a seasoned vet of the Hidamari Apartments herself, Yuno's newest challenge is to help the latest arrivals, Nazuna and Nori, acclimate to life on their own. Of course, since it IS Hidamari, there are still lots of trials and tribulations ahead, and nothing will ever go quite as expected. But with friends like Miyako, Hiro and Sae ready to lend a hand, there will always be a ray of sunshine at the end of every storm in Hidamari Sketch x Hoshimittsu - The Complete Collection.
