Matsukata is journalist/reporter for the local Jidai Magazine Weekly.
She is a female worker in mostly male dominated job industry, there
are only four females in her company of 40, but to get where she is
now she had to work three times as hard as any male and she treated
like a man. In fact, her co-workers call her the 'Hataraki
that she is more man-like and doesn't act feminine enough. She is
admired, resented and scorned by the people around her, but then the

is a hard working (and still young) independent woman, but that is
just the problem ...she is a woman. Being a woman in a male
dominated industry woman have to put up lazy male co-workers, males
who steal the credit for her work and sexual harassment. While some
girls use their sexuality to their advantage Hiroko prefers to be
judged by her work and prove how she is just as good as any of the
series is a reflection of some ideas of how the modern woman has an
up hill battle in the male work place. Most of humanity is still
secretly sexist, while they play lip service to the saying that men
and woman are treated as equals in the work place, men still look
down on woman when comparing to the opposite gender. Extras include

road trip for pizza, the Red and Blues end up not only lost in time
but find themselves in the middle of galactic war between the 'Gods'
and all of existence once more is in their hands in Red
Vs. Blue: The Shisno Paradox
the Red and Blues ever get a break from saving the universe from
military complexes, power hungry dictators, terrorists, rogue robots,
aliens, forerunner technologies or from themselves? After time and
time again they have either risen or runaway from various challenges
and yet (somehow) saved the universe ...and now they have finally
made peace between each other. But now, they find out that they are
the 'chosen ones' and the Gods of the Universe have given them time
traveling guns to 'save' the past from an 'evil' time controlling God
called Chrovos. BUT the Red and Blues use their new founded ability
to time travel and fix their own personal mistakes of their past (and
figure our the rules of time travel) history is about to get
re-written by the galaxy's most dumbest or luckiest of troopers
(depending on which way you look at it). In the end they find out
they were being play by these so called Gods, and the last thing any
of them like is being played and they will give them hell before they
will be played again.
series is, as you may know, loosely based on the Halo
video games set in a futuristic shooter game, only it is a giant
comic parody compared to the actual game. (Can you still call the
if the characters aren't fighting each other anymore?) The series is
filled with crazy, funny, and wise cracking characters who somehow
get involve with twisted/crazy plots that involve universal
destruction ...and yet they are the hero/heroines wannabes who end up
saving the day. All the characters look like various troopers from
the games with just slightly different suits or colors. Extras
the Sound for RvB, Machinimating for RvB, Behind the Animation,
Behind the Scenes with Joe and Minni, Behind the Scenes with Sister
and Tucker, The Cyclops,
Bloopers and commentary.
we have Yukari Morita, a young high school girl who decides to look
for her long lost father who disappeared in the Solomon Islands, but
instead finds herself going a lot farther ...into outer space! By
fate, she runs into the Solomon Space Association and they find she
light enough to ride their rockets ...so they make a deal with her,
she becomes their astronaut and they help her find her father in
was in search of her father in the South Seas, but instead discovers
her father was one night stand with her mother (and is the town
drunkard/village chief/idiot). And on top of that she has a
half-sister her own age, Matsuri. However, she is immediately
recruited into Solomon Space Association because they need someone
light enough to pilot their rockets. The Solomon Space Association
is a private company investing into commercial space travel, but
their only problem is they can't send a full grown adult into space
because they're too heavy for their rockets ...but a teenager school
girl is light enough. If they make it into space they will become
the youngest astronauts ever and the Solomon Space Association will
secure their space contracts. Does Yukari, Matsuri and Akane have
the right stuff?
was a light hearted drama about high school girls riding rockets into
space. The series has some elementary level information about space
travel and rockets, but truthfully space travel is a lot more
dangerous and serious than they make it. BUT if you think about it,
if they can send teenager into space for cheaper and half the amount
of training ...why bother send adult astronauts into space at all?
Extras include clean opening and closing animation and trailers.

are upscales of older series apparently too heavily finished in
standard, low definition video and/or the original film or
professional video masters are lost, missing or even are somehow
owned by another entity. Rocket

1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer on Girlfriend

production values throughout. Color, depth and detail are pretty
good as well.

a 1080i 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer that looks

Audio) 2.0 Stereo lossless mixes, though the upscaled show episodes
are on the weak side and not great, but better than lossy sound

Japanese version, both with Pro Logic-like surrounds, but the big
surprise is that the Red
Blu-ray finally has lossless sound!!!
DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix on Red
is still not as convincing overall as Girlfriend,
but is a very welcome upgrade and the best any of the sets we've
covered have ever sounded. The DVD version still has lesser lossy
