News Manga Entertainment to Distribute Un-Go
posted on 2011-12-24 15:30 EST
Kaze UK has tweeted that Un-Go will be distributed on "homevideo" by Manga UK. Additionally, the website UK Anime Network reports that Kaze has access to "Episode 0" of the series. There is no confirmation yet about the format(s) on which Episode 0 will be released.
Known as "Un-Go episode:0 Inga-ron" (Un-Go episode:0 Inga chapter) in Japan, the 45-minute prequel story ran in Japanese cinemas last November. It depicts the protagonists Shinjūrō and Inga's first meeting.
Andrew Partridge of Kaze UK and Anime on Demand had announced the "physical release rights" to Un-Go at the MCM convention in October. In December, Sentai Filmworks confirmed it had the rights to Episode 0 of Un-Go in America.
Correction - An earlier version of this story claimed that Manga UK is "releasing" Un-Go. In fact, Manga UK will distribute the series, but it is technically a Kaze UK release, as Kaze has the rights.
