Miyu’s friend Illya doesn’t pretend to understand everything, but she’s certain that Julian’s plan can’t be the only solution. The only problem is… what if she’s wrong?

SYNOPSIS: When the Ministry of Education goes back on its promise to keep Ooarai Girls Academy open, the task of saving the five-mile-long Academy Ship from the wreckers falls to Miho and her barely-seasoned tankery team. However, things go off track almost immediately. While the Oorai tank crew may have won the high school tournament, they’re now facing a larger and more experienced university team, and if they fail, their armored vehicles will be forfeited. Will they be swapping their tanks for the memories? It’s possible, but winning a tank battle is all about tactics and teamwork, and the fledgling Ooarai students have more friends and allies than anyone suspects. Get ready for another high-caliber round of the only sport where “having a blast” doesn’t necessarily mean you’re having a great time, as the Ooarai team puts everything on the line in Girls und Panzer Der Film.

SYNOPSIS: Once they were the stuff of children’s tales. Now, after Mankind’s civilization has collapsed and Man’s numbers have dropped to a handful, the fairies and other creatures of legend have laid claim to most of the Earth. Yet, while the grandeur of Man’s culture has faded, there are still humans who believe that they still have a purpose. This is why Watashi has decided to take on her Grandfather’s position as an arbitrator between the races… though as one of the few left who know how to make sweets, her negotiations most often take the form of bribes. For the more difficult cases, she carries a weapon. It’s not an easy job, but Watashi must succeed. Otherwise, future generations of fairies may amuse their children with stories about the mythical creatures known as men after Humanity Has Declined.

Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 325 min.
Street Date: 10/18/2022
Format: BD
Language: English & Japanese with English Subtitles

SYNOPSIS: Hotaru Tachibana has a strong sense of justice, a tendency to take matters personally, and a snappy masculine sense of style that makes many mistake her for a boy. So, when Hotaru believes that her new neighbor has taken advantage of a classmate and barges into his club, the inevitable gender confusion finds her being challenged to an air pellet gun duel… that an overconfident Hotaru soundly loses. However, unaware that “he” is, in fact, she, owner Masamune uses a hefty bill for damages to coerce the naturally talented Hotaru into joining his incomplete airsoft team. But the catch is – the team rules don’t allow girls, forcing Hotaru to pretend to be one of the guys around Masamune and the other team member, erotic comic artist Toru, while she plays off her debt in Aoharu X Machinegun.

Title: PETER GRILL AND THE PHILOSOPHER’S TIME
Published by: Sentai Filmworks
Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 180 min.
Street Date: 10/18/2022
Format: BD
Language: English & Japanese with English Subtitles

SYNOPSIS: Peter Grill may be the most powerful warrior in the world, but in a culture where strength is everything, there are lots of ambitious young women who will do anything to “acquire” Peter’s superior genes in order to bear powerful offspring. So, even though Peter just wants to marry his fiancée, he’s instead being beset by a bodacious bevy of Peter-obsessed females fiercely determined to get into his bed and/or ironclad pants. That would be a sticky situation even if the bawdy belligerents were merely human, but with elves, trolls and orcs all craving a little private Peter action, can even Peter stand up to this wave of pulchritudinous force? His flesh may be strong but his will may not hold up quite as rigidly when comely babe after babe keeps coming to test this poor Peter’s mettle in Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time.

Title: REVUE STARLIGHT THE MOVIE
Published by: Sentai Filmworks
Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 120 min.
Street Date: 10/25/2022
Format: BD
Language: English & Japanese with English Subtitles

SYNOPSIS: The stage emulates life and compresses it, setting free skills learned over lifetimes in brief but dazzling displays for the amusement and judgment of others. For the performers, it is the ultimate risk, and some will rise while others must fall. Nowhere is this truer than at the Seisho Music Academy, where music, dance and real weapons all come into play in the creation of the next great Star. Karen and Hikari’s destinies have been linked since a childhood promise, but their journeys here have taken very different paths. Now, after Hikari leaves, Karen must discover who she is without her opposite, while Hikari must rediscover her own course. Nor are they the only girls who must reassess and change if they want to achieve their dreams, as the dance, magic, and swordplay continue in Revue Starlight: The Movie.

Format: BD
Language: Japanese with English Subtitles

SYNOPSIS: Being a singer in a famous group isn’t the easiest life, as preparing for competitions, creating new music, and performing on stage takes up much of their time. Despite the endless cycle of travel, rehearsals, and occasionally getting to sleep, however, the members of SOARA, Growth, SolidS, and QUELL all still find a myriad of other things taking up their day. Helping friends and family, and giving advice to fellow performers are daily occurrences, but then there are more special opportunities like appearing on reality shows and TV dramas and even studying Flower Arrangement. Sometimes things get even wilder and stranger, like chasing down supernatural mysteries and experiencing feudal times. But while they do work hard, if they’re working with their bandmates or playing for their fans, it’s the greatest job ever in TsukiPro – The Animation 2.
