Manga Entertainment has confirmed on its twitter feed that it will release Season 1 Part 1 of Magi The Labyrinth of Magic on both Blu-ray and DVD, on February 24. The website UK Anime Network reported that Amazon UK is listing the anime. Manga told ANN, "It's a Viz Media Europe release that we are distributing on their behalf in the UK."

Magi - The Labyrinth of Magic, based on Shinobu Ohtaka's fantasy adventure manga, re-imagines tales from the classic story One Thousand and One Nights (also known as Arabian Nights). Director Koji Masunari (Read or Die, Welcome to THE SPACE SHOW) helmed the 25-episode anime adaptation at A-1 Pictures. Toshifumi Akai (Kokoro Connect, Sound of the Sky) served as the character designer and chief animation director, and Hiroyuki Yoshino (Accel World, Guilty Crown, My-HiME) handled the scripts. Shiro Sagisu (Bleach, Evangelion, Berserk films) composed the music.

The manga also inspired a sequel, Magi - The Kingdom of Magic, currently running in Japan.

Update - More details confirmed.
