up are the latest Anime titles, all this time of which are new
start with Doreiku:

years when it comes to sexuality, adult situations and other serious
matters, so do not be surprised by its content.
(Slave Control Method) is the latest underground thrill, it is a
device that can force any losers in any game to become slaves. Eia
and Yuuga enter the world of SCM at first for fun, but then discover
it is far more deadly. But in a world where players become masters
or slaves, the 'masters' play for keeps and will do anything
to win. For all those who play, it seems that once you start playing
...you can never stop playing.
and Eia team up to play in the SCM underground world. Both of them
are clever and seek the thrill of the challenge more than just adding
slaves to their group (like most players). Most who play usually
just want more slaves, power, money or influence, never thinking
about moral implications. There are absolute masters and slaves, but
there are certain rules in how to use the SCM. However, there are
ALSO ways to cheat, such as not clearly defining the 'rules' in the
game or to be able to think outside the box/rules of the game.
Things get far more complicated than just 2 players dueling against
each other, Masters are able to play by proxy or in groups. But what
IS the SCM device and what is it's true purpose?
series was like a mix of No Game No Life and Deathnote,
a world where everyone plays games to win, but with the seriousness
of Deathnote. This anime is definitely for an older audience.

the facts, almost all the females in the series are either raped,
tortured or abused in the series. Extras include clean opening and
closing animations and trailers.

vary despite being newly produced shows, with Doreiku
looking poorer than expected and Colors
looks great, making it a 4K candidate for a future 4K release when
Sentai enters that market. All
three releases have both DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) Japanese and
English 2.0 Stereo lossless mixes, but the Japanese mixes are the
originals and always better overall. All three have Pro Logic-like
surrounds, though Kokkoku
is sadly not that great sounding overall for some reason despite
being a recent production.
