In partnership with The Pokémon Company International, the Pokémon: Black & White Movie Collection home media release arrives with four feature films that will delight Pokémon fans of all ages.

New publishing debuts for September kick off with the Assassination Classroom Complete Box Set, which collects Yusei Matsui’s hit action comedy about a tentacled teacher with superpowers and a heart of gold.

VIZ Signature debuts for the month include Cats of the Louvre, the latest masterpiece from Eisner Award–winning creator Taiyo Matsumoto. No Guns Life is a cyberpunk series in which the protagonist’s head is replaced with a giant gun… and his memories erased. In the action-packed comedy The Way of the Househusband, a former yakuza legend desires to walk the straight and narrow. Finally, Levius debuts as a complete hardcover edition of the science fiction action series about cyborg arena fighters.

They’re planning a rescue when the train is attacked by the Legendary Kyurem! The Mythical Pokémon Keldeo is on a mission, to rescue its friends—Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion, the Legendary Pokémon known as the Swords of Justice—from Kyurem’s icy clutches. But Kyurem has other ideas, and when it transforms into Black Kyurem or White Kyurem for greater power, things look grim!

POKÉMON THE MOVIE: GENESECT AND THE LEGEND AWAKENED

A vast Pokémon habitat amid the hustle and bustle of the big city seems like the perfect new home for a group of five Genesect. The arrival of these Mythical Pokémon quickly becomes a problem, though: their nest threatens the city’s power supply, and they keep attacking those who approach it. When the Genesect are joined by the Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo—who sympathizes due to its own origins—things only become worse, and the confrontation quickly rages out of control. Can Ash and friends stop these two powerful Pokémon before they destroy the city?
