Death Note Release Won't be Limited to Downloads

posted on by Jonathan Mays
DVDs will be dubbed, downloads subtitled

Viz Media will release the Death Note anime on DVD in addition to its previously announced series of downloads.

"We look at Download to Own as a means to satisfy fans who are at the forefront of these properties released in Japan and want to see the properties in the U.S. closer to Japan's release, and also as a means to broaden that audience by allowing viewers to try a single episode of a property before they purchase the physical product," a Viz representative told ICv2 on Friday.

"We do not see these two distribution areas as mutually exclusive and believe that fans who want to catch the official version via download to own (subtitled version) closer to Japan's release date will also collect the home video (dubbed version) to have the physical product for their shelves and their collections."

Viz has not yet announced specific release dates for either the downloads or DVDs.
