Section 23 January Anime Releases - Now Available for Pre-Order!

Section 23 announced their January new release schedule on Friday, so we've got the following now available on the store site for pre-order:

Glass Mask DVD Collection #1 (Eps #1-26)
Hidamari Sketch Season 1 DVD Collection (Eps #1-12)
Neo Angelique Abyss Season 1 Complete Collection (Eps #1-13)
Petite Princess Yucie Complete Collection DVD Boxed Set (Re-Re-Issue)
Special A DVD Collection #2 (Eps #13-24)
Tears to Tiara DVD Collection #2 (Eps #14-26)
You're Under Arrest TV Season 2 DVD Collection #2 (Eps #14-26)

All new material aside from a new Petite Princess re-re-re-re-release (we still have stock on that series two versions back). The playing time for Hidamari Sketch is 350 minutes, which comes out to 14 episodes, so I assume that in addition to the 12 episodes the set will probably include the two specials, however, we won't list it like that until we get confirmation. Also, as a reminder, everything Section 23 is releasing is subtitled only.

New Series Synopsis:

Glass Mask
Her father passed away very early and her mother lives and works in a crowded Chinese restaurant. Kitajima Maya, a 13-year old girl, has to carry the burden of making ends meet as she fights against her ill fate. However, she is able to overcome the trials and tribulations in her life with her passion and enthusiasm. She happens to encounter the reclusive actress Tsukikage who decides to train and mould her into the foremost actress of her generation.

Hidamari Sketch
Yuno has been accepted to her dream school: Yamabuki Arts High School. To attend the school, Yuno moves and starts to live in a small apartment building named the Hidamari Apartments located near the school. Once there, she starts making new friends like her classmate Miyako and the second year students, Hiro and Sae. Surrounded by good friends, Yuno starts moving towards her dream of being an artist.

Neo Angelique Abyss
Arcadia is plagued with evil, life-draining demons called Thanatos and a vast lack of Purifiers to exterminate them all. While attending school, Angelique attracts the eye of a man who intends to turn the tides to the people's favor. What lies within her is the key to Arcadia's survival.
