In addition, the UK Anime Network site reports that "A firm Blu-Ray release date is yet to be confirmed, as MVM Entertainment are waiting for Australian partner Hanabee Entertainment to receive masters and author the discs." The site adds that the Blu-ray edition is provisionally planned for September.
MVM has acquired both Bakemonogatari and its sequel Nisemonogatari for DVD and Blu-ray. Bakemonogatari adapts NisiOisin's Bakemonogatari light novels. The short stories in NisiOisin's two volumes of Bakemonogatari deal with a high school boy named Koyomi Araragi and strange students he encounters. ("Bakemonogatari" is a wordplay on the Japanese term bakemono for supernatural creatures and the term monogatari for stories.) The series originally aired in Japan in 2009, followed by Nisemonogatari in 2012.
