DETROIT METAL CITY!!!! Rockers Johannes Krausser II, Camus, and Alexander Jagi make up the heavy metal superstars Detroit Metal City, but under all the makeup and metal they hold a terrible secret.

Mayo Chiki Complete Collection

Release Date: 10/2/2012

Japanese with English Subtitles

DVD, $49.98 USD

Sakamachi Kinjiro has a terrible case of gynophobia. The man is terrified of women so naturally they all flock around him as these types of stories usually go. A chance encounter with Subaru (The principal’s daughter Kanade’s butler) leads to a shocking revelation. This butler is no dude. The harem doesn’t end there with a fujoshi cat-ear enthusiast, the classic tsundere, and the genki younger sister. I actually enjoyed my time with the show and if any of this sounds like your thing, you’d do good picking this up.

In Kawakami City, having a samurai ancestor and enormous fighting spirit isn’t just an interesting historical fact; it’s a huge part of how you end up being ranked on the social totem pole. That, in turn, bleeds over into the school curriculum – sometimes, literally. Fortunately, that’s something the local kids like Yamato Naoe have learned to deal with by forming small bands, (of samurai, not the musical type.) And while the delicate sexual balance of Yamato’s group seemed fine when there were three girls and four boys, the sudden addition of two more girls starts to send everything spinning out of control! Seven’s a band of samurai and nine is a riot as boys, girls and naked blades all come together in MAJIKOI ~ OH! SAMURAI GIRLS! – Section23 Films
