Why they didn't do this the first time round is beyond me, way to annoy fans by making them double dip just for a 20 minute OVA, which doesn't even come on blu-ray :/

most likely because it wasn't available the first time around otherwise I'm sure they would have.

Already have the BR but I'll most certainly get it again for the OVA, I adore the series.

Considering the OVA hasn't even been licensed in the US, this is a good move from Manga UK.
It revives interest in what I imagine would be a slow seller for them now.
However, they should also be offering this OVA DVD as a standalone for people who have already bought the previous set. Silly expecting them to double-dip for a sub-only 15 minute DVD.

Ummm... nice but no thanks.

After saying in the past it wouldn't happen unless there was a 2nd season - i'm not double dipping.

Looks like a digital only release though, although nice to see it dubbed.

So, is this release not available in the states? I haven't picked up a copy of the series and figured I'd get this one. But, I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Sentai have [url=http://www.fandompost.com/oldforums/showthread.php?15174-Sentai-Filmworks-licenses-High-School-of-the-Dead-Drifters-of-the-Dead-(OVA)&p=135375&viewfull=1#post135375]said[/url] that they will not be releasing DotD on disc.

Manga had said the same thing so it isn't impossible, however for the foreseeable future it is only available digitally in the US.
