Assassination Classroom The Movie (DVD) (Special Edition) (Japan Version) DVD Region 2
| Kang Ji Young
| Suda Masaki
| Shiina Kippei
Hey! Say! JUMP member Yamada Ryosuke takes his first film leading role in the live-action adaptation of mega-popular manga Assassination Classroom. Written by Matsui Yusei, Assassination Classroom has been serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump since 2012 and has sold over 10 million copies. The story begins when a mysterious creature destroys 70% of the moon and threatens to destroy the earth within the year. Strangely, the creature then offers to become the homeroom teacher of Kunugigaoka Junior High School's class 3E, notorious for being the home of the school's least academically-inclined students. In reaction to this, the world's leaders task class 3E with assassinating the creature, offering ¥10 billion as a reward for whomever succeeds.
Yamada plays Shiota Nagisa, a 3E student whose friendly exterior masks a dark and dangerous disposition. Physically unimposing and weak, Shiota nevertheless proves to possess the skills of an assassin. The film also stars veteran Shiina Kippei (The After-Dinner Mysteries) as 3E's P.E. teacher Tadaomi Karasuma, former Kara member Kang Ji Young as an assassin/foreign language teacher, and Suda Masaki (Daily Lives Of High School Boys), Yamamoto Maika (Kamen Teacher: The Movie), Taketomi Seika (Hot Road), Yuki Mio (Kami-sama no Iu Toori) and Uehara Miku (Kimi ni Todoke) as Shiota's fellow students.

A hit at the Japanese box office, Strobe Edge is a poignant romance about the joys and pains of first love.

Ryuzo and the Seven Henchmen (Blu-ray) (Special Edition) (English Subtitled) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Kitano Takeshi (Director)
| Onodera Akira
| Katsumura Masanobu
The "Jiji" takes on the young'uns in Ryuzo and the Seven Henchmen, a new kind of gangster comedy from director Kitano Takeshi. The legendary Fuji Tatsuya – star of numerous gangster films in the 60s – is back in the spotlight as Ryuzo, a retired yakuza boss living out a peaceful (and incredibly boring) life at home with his son. One day, Ryuzo almost falls victim to a phone scam and vows to take revenge on the scammers. However, Ryuzo discovers that the members of his old gang have all become pensioners with little remnants of their glorious criminal pasts. With a bit of ingenuity and strong fighting spirit, Ryuzo and his men take on the young ruthless gang that tried to wrong him. Taking a light change of pace following his intense Outrage films, Kitano has created a laugh-out-loud comedy that reflects his own aging sensibilities and offers a clever twist on a familiar film genre.
This edition includes making of, stage events, television special and trailers. It also comes with a booklet with staff interview.
