About DRAMAtical Murder Blu-ray
This DRAMAtical Murder collection contains episodes 1-13.
Nothing on Midorijima has been the same since the powerful Toue Konzern forced the original population into the Old Residential District and converted the rest of the island into the exclusive resort Platinum Jail. Despite that, Aoba Seragaki has tried to build a normal life for himself, working part-time in a junk shop and hanging out with his friends and his A.I. "pet" AllMate, Ren.
But when Aoba is drawn into the shady underworld that surrounds the popular virtual game Rhyme, the universe that he thought he knew falls apart. If deja vu describes the sensation of experiencing something that you think you may have done before, what is it called when other people seem to recognize you for doing things that you don't remember doing? All Aoba knows is that there are gaps in his memory, people are disappearing, and a secret buried in his own mind may be the only keys to revelation!

Ratings & Reviews
Boys, boys and a story somewhere?
by A1sonic -
Not bashing the series, just pointing out what to expect in the series.
The story focus on a guy named Aoba, he's pretty normal, just enjoying his simple life but things slowly change for him and his friends.
I have weakness for David's voice so I got a little fond of Koujaku. Greg playing Clear was a surprise but he pulled it off wonderfully. Aoba's VA, I'm not familiar with him but I felt he was more fleshed out for English viewers. Ren's VA was great but he was a bit difficult to understand in the first few eps but everyone did a great job!
I recommend DM if you are a fan of the game, or yaoi. I liked seeing another yaoi dubbed(the sub isn't bad. I just like watching dub- it feels like they put more effort in the release.) Thou its just the eps, OVA and clean intro/ending. It would of been nice to have at least one commentary thou.
I'll end this by saying, I humored the thought of Sentai dubbing the game. I would definitely pick it up if they did.
Terrific series with fan service
The premise was so interesting; futuristic, cyber with great looking male characters that had some funny parts thrown in so it is not so intense. The build up of the story was steady but I enjoyed seeing the back stories of some of the characters during the "scrap" sessions with Aoba. The story dives deep into the heart of how people really are but try to hide. And how our experiences makes us into who we are now but doesn't have to change us forever. But the last "xx" episode was complete fan service that takes you off guard. Suggestive to say the least but still enjoyable. I highly recommend this for people as a break in to sci-if psychological genre. If you like shounen ai or yaoi then the last episode will treat you well. Great product overall!
