Top Picks For The Month

The Rising of the Shield Hero Part 1

Geeky university student, Naofumi Iwatani, goes from second-class citizen to second-class hero when he’s summoned to the videogame-like kingdom of Melromarc. Known as the weakest of four heroes, the Shield Hero, he’s tasked with defending the world from calamity. But when Naofumi ends up betrayed and belittled from the start, will this hero-turned-cynic still be willing to fight?

The Rising of the Shield Hero Part 1 is now available as a limited edition DVD/Blu-ray combo set featuring a whole host of exclusive extras such as art cards, an art book, keychains, stickers, a fabric poster and more!

The Rising of the Shield Hero Part 2

Journeying to a neighboring country, Naofumi and his party are framed for kidnapping princess Melty. Now on the run, Raphtalia recalls her traumatic past, Filo faces her noble destiny, and the Three Heroes Church sacrifices everything to destroy the Devil of the Shield. When a member of the royal family offers to help, will Naofumi accept it?

The limited edition DVD/Blu-ray combo set of The Rising of the Shield Hero Part 2 is out now and includes a light novel!

Konosuba – God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! Season 1

Kazuma Sato decides that today is the day to get out of the house for a bit. Since he dies, pointlessly, it’s clearly a bad choice. The goddess who greets him in the afterlife, however, offers him a chance to be reborn in a world not unlike that of a video game, and as a bonus she’ll even throw in a cool item or power! Can’t possibly be a bad choice, right? Except he arrives with no money at all, dead average skills, and his “bonus” isn’t useful at all–since he picked the goddess, Aqua, herself.

How are the two of them supposed to defeat the evil Devil King and live happily ever after? Well, for them, it probably starts with day laboring rather than adventuring. And it’s only going to get more disappointing from there!
