    Section23 Films, America’s fastest-growing genre film distributor, is pleased to announce two new DVDs that will blow your mind. From Section23 client Sentai Filmworks comes the fun new anime MARIA-HOLIC COMPLETE COLLECTION, collecting the entire series in one cool set. Next up is RYUJI THE YAKUZA, a hard-boiled thriller from Switchblade Pictures. Both DVDs were released on February 23rd. MARIA-HOLIC COMPLETE COLLECTION MARIA-HOLIC COMPLETE COLLECTION is a romantic comedy set in an all-girls school, where androphobic transfer student Kanako searches for her yuri partner but instead runs into a cross-dressing boy with a sadistic personality. Featuring unusually lush, playful art direction from studio Shaft, MARIA-HOLIC veers wildly from serious send-up to outrageous parody of popular anime tropes. This is one over-the-top series! It’s not easy to find the perfect girl, even when you’re the same sex! Kanako thought attending an all girls school would be the perfect way to meet the girl of her dreams, but after her hot new roommate turns out to be a guy in drag, and catching the eye of the most popular girl in school only brings down the wrath of all the OTHER similarly obsessed girls, she’s not so sure! Complicate things with a cat-eared dorm leader, her roommate’s rude-mannered maid and identical twin sister (who attends an all boys school, of course,) and WAY too many attractive girls of questionable persuasions and the question becomes whether Kanako can die from frustrated nosebleeds! (Life would be SO much easier if guys didn’t literally give her the hives!) Will Kanako ever find a non-polar opposite of a compatible non-opposing polarity? Running Time: 300 min. Age Rating: TV 14 Language: Japanese with English Subtitles Published by: Sentai Filmworks Distributed by: Section23 Films Street Date: 2/23/2010 Format: DVD SRP: $39.98 RYUJI THE YAKUZA

    Every man needs a code, and Ryuji the Yakuza is no exception. Ruthless, cunning and loyal, Ryuji is the perfect Yakuza. But violate his sense of honor, and he’ll take you down – no matter who you are! Like the Man with No Name, Ryuji is an enigmatic, indomitable force for justice. Behind a bloody veil of mystery, the puppet masters of the Yakuza secretly control Japan. Yet for all their power, the Yakuza are governed by their own codes of loyalty and honor, and there are those who are seen not as criminals, but heroes. Ryuji Ogami, of the Goda-gumi, is one such enigma: torn between the worlds of Bullets and Bushido, his hidden compassion perfectly balances the brutal force of his lethal iron hand. If your cause is just, it is said, seek out Ryuji. But endanger those he cherishes, like young club hostess Megumi and his junior Kazuki, and he will find you. And when the code of the Yakuza is violated by his own gang, Ryuji’s own code will leave him no choice. Running Time: 139 min. Age Rating: Unrated - VA Language: Japanese with English Subtitles Published by: Switchblade Pictures Distributed by: Section23 Films Street Date: 2/23/2010 Format: DVD SRP: $19.98
