26-episode series based on Oh! great's fighting manga to get bilingual DVD release this year

North American anime distributor Discotek Media announced on Friday that it has licensed the 26-episode Tenjho Tenge television anime series. The company plans to release the series this year on DVD with Geneon Entertainment's original English dub as well as the Japanese audio track with English subtitles.

The 2004 series adapts Oh! great's school fighting manga about the violent brawls that ensue at Todo High, a school dedicated to training its students in the art of combat. Geneon Entertainment previously released the series on DVD in 2005-2006. Toshifumi Kawase (Beyblade, Matchless Raijin-Oh) directed the series at Madhouse Studios and Toshiki Inoue (Death Note, Dennō Coil, Chaos;HEAd) handled the series composition.

Viz Media is releasing the original manga unedited in North America. DC Comics' CMX Manga line previously released the manga series with edits through volume 18 before the imprint was closed in 2010.
