Central Park Media has announced three new manga selections for January including Slayers Premium, The Sword of Shibito and Over the Rainbow. 


Slayers Premium is the hilarious manga adaptation of the fifth Slayers movie in which the all-too-edible OCTOPI attempt to gain revenge on humanity in general and the voracious Lina Inverse in particular. 


The Sword of Shibito Vol. #1 is the first book in a series about a zombie samurai written by Hideyuki Kikuchi, author of Demon City Shinjuku, Darkside Blues, and Vampire Hunter D. 


In contrast to the dark happenings in Sword of Shibito, Over the Rainbow is a frothy comedy/romance about two clueless lawyers and their mysterious amnesiac client.


Equally humorous is CPM's Time Bokan DVD, an anime OAV from 1993 produced by the studio responsible for Battle of the Planets and Speed Racer, and guest starring Ken from Gatchaman (Battle of the Planets).  Teams of bad guys compete for the title of 'meanest villains ever' in this hilarious spoof.
