I recently inquired about the Drifters of the Dead OVA and whether or not it was bilingual. This was Manga's response:

Of particularly interest in the crew's latest, pre-Comic Con podcast, is confirmation that Blue Exorcist will be re-released in the UK on Blu-Ray, and complete with its English dub, to follow up on the show's previous subtitle-only release which was arranged before the existence of said English dub was confirmed.

This release will arrive under the name of the Blue Exorcist Definitive Collection, and will consist of the full series on Blu-Ray with English and Japanese audio spanning three 50GB discs, as well as the series on DVD in Japanese only with English subtitles. Further details of Manga Entertainment's exact plans, including release dates, will be revealed at the MCM London Comic Con.

Hi, sorry to hear you feel this way. Manga UK only distributes Kaze and Viz Media’s DVD and Blu-ray releases. We do not author or manufacture the finished stock. We have made Kaze aware of the complaints we’ve received. I would advise that if you are unhappy with your purchase to return it within the return period set by the retailer you bought it from for a full refund or credit.
Apologies for any inconvenience. ^JG

Well, that's more of an acknowledgement than a confirmation... Andrew Partridge of Anime Limited (who is also a consultant for Kaze) says

Fair enough I stand corrected Razz

Reading those translations of Kaze really is starting to give me headaches Evil or Very Mad I have to basically do a translation of a translation which is not fun when you have to keep on pausing the show Mad

Madman Entertainment to the rescue?

I wonder... Does that give evidence of a NA release from FUNimation as well? Neutral

It wouldn't stand up in court, but it is certainly good circumstantial evidence.

MVM Entertainment have just confirmed on twitter that they got Fate/zero and that they'll be releasing it next year. No news on a BD release, but they're going to be looking into it.
