posted on by Andrew Osmond
Manga Entertainment has announced on its fourteenth podcast that it has acquired the following titles:
- K-ON! The Movie - DVD and Blu-Ray 'later in the year' - August or September 'if we're lucky.' Jerome Mazandarani 'teased' that Manga was also likely to release the second TV season of K-ON!
- Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine - Complete Series Collection on DVD and Blu-Ray in the third quarter of 2013 ('during the summer holidays').
- KenIchi the Mightiest Disciple - released as two four-disc DVD box sets, first series released this June. (DVD only.)
- The original Last Exile series, also from GONZO, will be released on DVD as a Complete Series Collection on June 17, with a retail price of £39.99. As with K-ON, Mazandarani 'teased' that Manga was likely to also release Last Exile -Fam, The Silver Wing- in 2013.
- The original anime version of Hellsing, as a four-disc DVD box-set.
- The Production I.G feature film Loups=Garous - The Motion Picture is also being released in the second quarter.
Also, the Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt Blu-ray/DVD combo pack is confirmed for June 24. Mazandarani said the combo pack format was decided in order to 'add value' for purchasers; also so that retailers of both formats would take it. The DVD version will stay on shelves.
The extra OAV episode ("Drifters of the Dead") on the reissued Highschool of the Dead will be subtitled-only, unless Sentai dubs it. It was not offered to Manga when the series was originally released by the company. Manga is investigating ways of making the episode available as an individual disc.
The Fairy Tail Complete Season 1 collection will be released on June 17.
