They describe Psybuster 

In 2040, the continuous pollution and the mysterious series of earthquakes left the city of Tokyo in ruins. A young man named Ken Ando is in training to become a member of DC, an army-like organization designed to investigate and protect the collapsing environment. Ken, with the support from his sister, Sayuri, gives his best to become a part of the elite group. But he receives the devastating news of being cut from the team because of his poor performances in the evaluation sessions.

 

When an ominous monster suddenly appears from the sky with a blinding flash and starts mowing down DC’s working robots with mysterious invisible forces. Ken, eager to show what he is truly made of, engages in a battle with the monster. Little does he realize his own fate and the fate of Earth itself may be linked to the mysterious Mech from another world.

 

Loosely based on characters from the Super Robot Wars video game series, this complete collection contains all 26 episodes in Japanese with English subs and the English dub!

 

 

They describe Dancouga

Deep in outer space, the emperor Muge plots his next conquest – an out-of-the-way planet known as Earth. Mustering all the forces of his own personal Empire of Death, the Emperor is by far the most formidable foe humans have ever faced. And now he’s even more fearsome thanks to the defection of Shapiro Keats, a power-hungry Earthling reborn as an Empire informer.

 

Army after army crumbles in the face of an onslaught of the Empire’s seemingly indestructible robots. But now there’s a team that just might be able to stop them: an ace pilot named Shinobu, Sara (Shapiro’s one-time girlfriend) , and Ryo, a very unlikely young hero. Together, they’re in command of a new secret weapon developed in a laboratory hidden deep in a lake in Japan. Enter Dancougar, the Super Beast Machine God – and the battle’s just beginning!

This complete TV series collection contains all 38 television episodes remastered and in Japanese language with English subtitles!

Another title for July 25th 2017. Captain Harlock Endless Orbit SSX TV series on DVD for the first time in the US!

The image is from the slip cover.

Far into the future, a terrible alien menace named Illumidas has conquered Earth. War hero Captain Harlock and his faithful crew are forced to flee into space on their cutting-edge battleship. As they travel the galaxy fighting injustice, Harlock dreams of some day finding Arcadia, a legendary planet where all humans can be free.

Along his journey, Harlock is joined by more valiant young people who share his dream of a better future for all humankind. But the Illumidas — assisted by a brilliant human engineer, who will betray even his own kind in the name of revenge — will stop at nothing to halt his voyage. Harlock and his allies are declared pirates, under the code name SSX!

This 1982 series from the mind of Leiji Matsumoto acts as a loose prequel to the classic Galaxy Express 999 and Space Pirate Captain Harlock. Reuniting Harlock with old friends while introducing a new and colorful cast, Endless Orbit SSX offers more of the quiet introspection, manly derring-do, and stunningly animated ship- to-ship combat sequences that the Harlock series is known for. Arcadia, take off! This contains the complete series in Japanese with English subtitles.

 

Last title for July 25th 2017, Midnight Eye Goku complete OVA series on DVD. This includes the Japanese with English subtitles and both English dubs!

Goku lives by a simple rule: never get involved with women. But as a private detective in a futuristic Tokyo City, that’s easier said than done. Directed by Yoshiaki Kawajiri (Wicked City, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust) and written by Buichi Terasawa (Space Adventure Cobra), this classic anime features a pair of stories that delve into a sleek and sexy world, filled with deadly cyborgs and alluring demons. Goku’s cases take him into the heart of danger, whether it’s facing down a powerful and wealthy man who develops mass-murdering weapons, or a crazed experiment wielding ultimate power gone wrong. His one ace in the hole is his cybernetic left eye, which allows him to control any computer system in the world and gain information instantly. It’s his one edge over the bad guys–but even with it, Goku can never see into the hearts of the women who enter his life as quickly as they leave it. This release contains the original Japanese language with English subtitles, and both English dubs!
