posted on by Andrew Osmond
However, the Blu-ray double pack of Milos/Shamballa is held back to December.

On Monday September 3, Manga Entertainment is releasing the feature film Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos in three editions. There will be a DVD edition (pictured right); a Blu-ray edition; and also a DVD double-pack edition (pictured left) which also contains the previous FMA film, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Movie - Conqueror of Shamballa. (Milos is spun off from the Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood series, whereas Shamballa follows the different continuity of the previous Fullmetal Alchemist TV series.)

Manga Entertainment is also preparing a Blu-ray edition of the Milos/Shamballa double-pack. This edition was intended to come out on September 3 as well, but Manga tweeted there was a production issue with the Shamballa Blu-ray. For this reason, the Blu-ray double-pack has been delayed to December.

Also on Monday, Manga is releasing the series Princess Jellyfish in a 'strictly limited' three-disc edition, packed with a Jellyfish plushie. Based on Akiko Higashimura's Kuragehime manga, the series revolves around a collection of female otaku living in an apartment complex. Their world is turned upside-down when protagonist Tsukimi, who is obsessed with jellyfish, befriends a man named Kuronosuke, a fashionable cross-dresser.

Finally, the video label Terror-Cotta is releasing the horror OVA Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack. The film is based on the manga by Junji Ito, about fish with metal legs that emerge from the sea to attack Japan.
