But is Chaika the dead man’s daughter, picking up the pieces for burial, or is there something far more sinister in the works?

As rumors come forth of other, identical girls engaged in the same task, the winds of war seem to be stirring, and there are those who believe that rejoining the Emperor’s scattered body could unleash a new nightmare!

Plot:The gateway to Idol stardom might have opened for the newly formed singing group Wake Up, Girls, but the path to fame is full of perils and pitfalls. And for Mayu, Airi, Minami, Yoshino, Nanami, Kaya and Miyu, it’s going to be especially difficult knowing who to trust, as their manager Matsuda’s lack of experience could give other, less scrupulous, individuals a chance to take advantage.

That’s a situation that quickly comes to a head when Green Leaves’ president suddenly disappears with most of the money, and things only get worse when the replacement producer seems more interested in getting the girls into revealing swimsuits than promoting their music.

As malicious gossip begins to surface regarding Mayu’s past membership in a rival group, and internal tensions begin to tear the team apart, they’ll need more than just ambition to survive. Singing may be a business, but friendship.

Price: $48.79 / £38.59

Episodes: 1 – 26 (3 Discs)

Plot:  Ever since he first met Nagi Sanzenin, Hayate Ayasaki’s life has become increasingly more crazed and chaotic. Which is a bit of a problem, since, as the eccentric heiress’ butler/personal bodyguard, he’s theoretically supposed to be a stabilizing and protective influence.

Unfortunately, Nagi and her friends attract trouble the way dropped lollipops attract dirt, and if Hayate has to take a couple of nasty licks along the way, that’s just part of the job. The real sucker punch, though, is that Nagi’s increasing attraction to Hayate himself is getting precariously close to transforming their professional relationship into something far less professional and much more like a relationship.

Is Hayate up for the emotional perils of a round of “upstairs, downstairs”? Or will the purely physical dangers of life on Her Majesty’s Domestic Service do him in first? Get ready to spit and polish in the eye of the devil as the groom and doom continues in the second series of HAYATE THE COMBAT BUTLER!!

Price: $53.99 / £41.35

Episodes: 1 – 52 (6 Discs)

Plot:  Could Hayate Ayasaki’s life get any unluckier? As if it wasn’t bad enough that he’s had to work constantly in order to support his good-for-nothing parents, now he’s lost his job for being underage and Mom and Pop have cashed in their cash cow by selling him to the Yakuza. For Christmas!

Desperate to pay off the 156,804,000 yen debt before he’s converted into black market organ parts, Hayate strikes on the idea of kidnapping oddball heiress Nagi Sanzenin. Unbelievably, however, even that goes wrong and not only does he end up not kidnapping her, he rescues her from other kidnappers. (Apparently this happens to her all the time.) But maybe, just maybe, there might be a tiny, dim light at the end of the very dark tunnel of Hayate’s existence, and the skills that Hayate’s had to develop to stay alive will pay off.

Because Nagi needs a butler/bodyguard and Hayate could just fit the bill. Assuming he can survive the on-the-job training, of course. Fate can be a harsh mistress, but Hayate may have just signed up with an even harsher one!
