North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced at its Anime Weekend Atlanta panel on Friday that it has licensed the Fate/stay night television anime series.
Sentai Filmworks will release Fate/stay night Collection 1 on Blu-ray Disc in January. The company previously released the Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works anime film on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in June.
Funimation released a Fate/stay night anime series box in 2009 as one of its first anime DVDs from its distribution deal with Geneon Entertainment. Tokyopop published 11 volumes of Datto Nishiwaki's manga version in North America before its North American branch shut down in May 2011.
Sentai Filmworks also revealed the details for its other January releases at the panel. The company will release Mardock Scramble: The Second Combustion on Blu-ray Disc and DVD, and the release will include the theatrical edition and the director's cut edition. The company will also release Bodacious Space Pirates on Blu-ray Disc and DVD with an English dub. Additionally, the company will release Saiyuki Gaiden on DVD in January, and the release will include an English dub with the original ADV Films dub cast.
Sentai Filmworks will also release the second half of the Persona 4 The Animation television anime series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in January. Similarly to the release of the first half of the series, the Blu-ray Disc release will omit the original Japanese audio track.
