Sekirei The Complete Series Coming To UK on DVD August 15th


From the Aniplex, the studio behind "FullMetal Alchemist", comes Sekirei, the ultimate harem action-comedy anime. Based on the manga by Sakurako Gokurakuin (Sensitive Pornograph) and directed by Keizo Kusakawa (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha; Inukami!), Sekirei – The Complete Series comes to DVD on 15th August 2011 as a two-disc release featuring all 12 episodes of the show’s first season.

The year is 2020 and 19-year-old Minato Sahashi is having a bad time of it. He has just failed his college entrance exam for the second time, is currently unemployed and can’t get a girlfriend to save his life. Thankfully, fate deals him an unexpectedly lucky hand when a well-proportioned babe named Musabi falls on him from the sky. Minato soon learns that Musabi is a “Sekirei”, one of 108 beautiful girls with incredible otherworldly powers. Even better, Musabi chooses Minato to be her “Ashikabi”, a human with whom each Sekirei must bond in order to access her full potential and gain the power required to fight in a series of elimination battles with the other girls.

But Minato soon learns that being the partner of a cute, perfectly formed girl with supernatural powers is not easy, especially when he finds himself shacked up with a group of other Sekirei who also choose him as their Ashikabi, all of whom are quite literally fighting for his affections.

Special Features include: “Kusano’s First Shopping Trip” OVA; textless opening song; textless closing song; English 5.1 Surround and Japanese Stereo (with English subtitles) audio options.
