Aniplex of America announced at its panel at Sakura-Con on Friday that it is rereleasing The Garden of Sinners and Oreimo anime on DVD. The company originally released ufotable's The Garden of Sinners movie series in an English-subtitled Blu-ray Disc box in North America in February 2011. Aniplex of America noted that it sold out of its initial Blu-ray box release.
Aniplex originally released a limited-edition DVD box set for the Oreimo television anime series in October 2011. The release included all 12 television episodes plus four video episodes with English subtitles. Aniplex noted that the original limited-edition DVD boxset had sold out, and that the new release will be on regular-edition DVD. Aniplex will announce more details about both rereleases soon.
Aniplex also revealed at the panel that it will release four albums by Japanese singer LiSA on May 1. LiSA performed songs as part of the in-anime band "Girls Dead Monster" in the Angel Beats! television anime series. She then contributed the song "oath sign" for the first half of the Fate/Zero television anime series. She sang during Singapore's Anime Festival Asia last November. Aniplex plans to release the albums physically and digitally. LiSA will perform at this year's Anime Expo in Los Angeles.
