Lab: Complete Collection
an all-girls school, girls can't help but have their schoolgirl
fantasies run a bit wild. Maki on the outside appears to be the
perfect student council president, but really on the inside her
imagination runs wild on how to play hookey with a boy. Riko is at
first shocked by the president's scandal with the body pillow, but
then she also tells a white lie and says that she is also a 'Love
Master' with boys (though she's really not). Pretty soon their
circle of friends expands with the shy and innocent Suzu, Sayo and
Eno. Sayo has a sharp mind and is able to point out anyone's
weakness and faults, while her best friend Eno is constantly trying
to reclaim the presidency limelight. Together, they conduct the
various after school experiments in their 'Love Lab.'
is what you would call a 'shojo' anime or girl's anime, an anime
where the series is about girls, but not a harem (sorry guys, no fan

boys and their comical friendship/relationships with each other.
1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image looks really good
throughout each episode if not as amazing as some recent Sentai
releases on Blu-ray, while the lossless DTS-HD MA 2.0 Stereo is warm
and well recorded throughout, plus has Pro Logic-like surounds those
with home theater systems might want to try out to the point that it
is even better than the image. Extras
include clean opening and closing animations and trailers.
