Section23 Films starts off October with corpse paint and metal with the anime adaptation of Detroit Metal City along with Idolm@Ster Xenoglossia Collection 1. We’ve got the full lineup of October releases from Section23 and Sentai Filmworks after the jump.
Title: Detroit Metal City Complete Collection (DVD)
Synopsis: Get ready for the ear-splittingest, skull-smashingest band to ever assault your senses! Led by phallus-waiving terrorist-from-hell Johannes Krauser II (guitar/vocals,) and given pulsing, throbbing life by indestructible drummer Camus and bassist Alexander Jagi, they’re Detroit Metal City, the hottest ticket on the concert circuit! There’s just one catch. That “hottest ticket” is just a meal ticket, and beneath the makeup these ultimate headbangers are hired doppelgangers who don’t even LIKE what they do! Jaggi is actually Wada, who wants to play Glam Rock, Camus is Nishida, an anime fan with an appalling weakness for curry and NSFW videos, and Krauser is… oh the shame… street-singing Soichi Negishi, whose dreams of singing happy pop seem hopelessly doomed by the success of his rage-fueled alter ego! Worse, he can’t even tell anyone who Krauser is. Not even the girl he likes, who HATES DMC! Will rage against the corporate machine consume Negishi’s tortured soul? Is there life after Death Metal? What it’s like to put your head in a jet engine and turn UP the volume? Find out as angst, amps and anarchy collide in DETROIT METAL CITY!
Title: Mayo Chiki Complete Collection (DVD)
Synopsis: When you’ve got acute gynophobia, even a pretty girl can be like a malady, and as the sparring partner for his family of female wrestlers, Sakamachi Kinjiro has the worst case EVER! Just one touch makes his nose bleed, so school’s a bloody nightmare even before Kanade, the Principal’s twisted daughter, deduces both Kinjiro’s “feminine issue” AND that his name contains the sounds “Chi” and “Kin” back to back. But Chi-Kinjiro’s female troubles don’t totally redline until a wrong turn in the men’s room exposes the secret Subaru, Kanade’s manservant, has been hiding in the water closet. (Well, to be fair, SHE is still a servant.) And if Subaru’s cross reactions concerning her cross-dressing aren’t enough of a drag, Kinjiro’s girl problems also include a haunted martial artist (with ghosts,) a cat-eared fetishist (meow!) AND his own sister, who’s interest in “wrestling” a certain incorrectly packaged butler, may result in an unexpected ending! And that’s JUST the set up! The maiden parts will fly, the punchlines will be below the belt and the butler will be cross-dressed to kill as Kinjiro goes stark-raving “Girl Crazy” in MAYO CHIKI!
Title: Heaven’s Memo Pad Complete Collection (DVD, Blu-ray)
Synopsis: Narumi Fujishima isn’t your typical high school student; he’s never really fit in and has been becoming increasingly more isolated from his fellow classmates. But he’s not alone, and when Ayaka, the sole member of the Gardening Club, introduces him to the reclusive girl who lives above the ramen shop, Narumi enters a whole new secret world. Alice is a NEET, someone who is Not Employed, being Educated or in Training, but as Narumi quickly discovers, that doesn’t mean that she does nothing all day. In between tending to her small army of stuffed bears, Alice is an expert hacker and very exclusive, private detective. To his surprise, Narumi finds himself drafted as one of the strange, but elite team of associates that Alice has assembled from her NEET acquaintances. Together they’ll battle gangs, thieves, murderers and drug lords. And in the middle of it all, Narumi will find his life changing forever in Heaven’s Memo Pad!

Toss in an organized crime cartel, a handful of extremely annoying transfer students and the inevitable trip to the hot springs and everyone is bound to end up in hot water one way or another. But the blackboard jungle has met its match, because sometimes all it takes to maintain order, and provide service with a smile, is a maid!
Title: Idolm@Ster Xenoglossia Collection 1 (DVD)
Synopsis: 107 years ago, the Moon was destroyed in a massive cataclysm that shattered Earth’s former satellite into 81 quintillion tons of orbital debris. However, thanks to super-science, the Earth itself was saved and today no one really thinks much about that century-past disaster. Which is why when teenage Haruka Amami auditions for something called the Idolmaster Project, she THINKS she’s trying out to be a singing idol. Instead, Haruka finds herself at a secret school run by the Mondenkind Agency, living with a group of other girls who have also been selected as candidates to pilot an IDOL – an advanced robot specifically designed to intercept falling chunks of moon rock. Except there aren’t enough Idols for all the potential pilots, and there are some who will do anything to earn the coveted seats, even if the consequences are lethal. And then there’s the question of whether the Idols are really just robots, because from almost the first moment, Haruka starts to feel emotions resonating from within the Idol called Imber. The mysteries are mounting, the competition is furious and the mission to save Earth is on in IDOLM@STER XENOGLOSSIA – COLLECTION ONE!
Title: Someday’s Dreamers Ii Sora Complete Collection (DVD)
Synopsis: Get ready for a second magical journey to the world of SOMEDAY’S DREAMERS, where spellcasting is a profession that requires both the proper training AND a license. It’s to get that license and fulfill a promise made to her late father that young Suzuki Sora has made the long journey from her distant home in the countryside town of Biei to the big city of Tokyo. It’s a daunting challenge, but she’s got a little bit of talent, a charming personality and, most important of all, the promise of an internship! What she ISN’T expecting, though, is how different life in the city will be, especially the people themselves. While she gets along with the ascerbic Asagi, Kuroda and the timid Hiyori, she’s completely confused with the mysterious boy Gouta. And yet, as a result of their internships they keep ending up in the same situations and slowly learning to understand more about each other than they ever imagined possible! Prepare to be enchanted all over again as Sora slowly discovers the most powerful magic of all in SOMEDAY’S DREAMERS II SORA – THE COMPLETE COLLECTION!
Title: Majikoi ~ Oh! Samurai Girl Complete Collection Blu-Ray (DVD, Blu-ray)
Synopsis: 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!
Title: Ub-Go Complete Collection (DVD, Blu-ray)
Synopsis: Some call him the ’Last Great Detective’. Others call him the ’Defeated Detective’. What’s certain is that he’s Shinjurou Yuuki, a young man with a passion for mysteries and a talent for solving them that has made him the target of dark forces now stirring within the sinister underworld of a near future Tokyo. That could prove lethal, given that not even the other ’good guys,’ including the police, are exactly on Shinjouro’s side. Fortunately Yuuki’s not completely on his own, and with the aid of his uniquely talented associate Inga, he’s ready to cut a swath through the veils of secrecy that have been laid before him. Get ready for mind against matter and a lot of cloak and dagger as the ultimate battle of clue and deduction begins in UN-GO!
