Aniplex USA Offers Nisekoi on English-Subtitled Blu-ray (Updated)

posted on by Egan Loo
Pre-orders begin on Friday for November 25 release of 1st 5-episode volume

Aniplex of America announced at its Otakon panel on Friday that it will begin releasing the Nisekoi - False Love television anime on Blu-ray Disc on November 25. The release will feature the Japanese audio track with English subtitles, and pre-orders begin today. The first volume will contain the first five episodes.

The first volume will also include collectible ending card pinups, a deluxe poster, textless opening, and textless endings for US$49.98 (US$64.98 suggested retail price).

The anime revolves around Raku Ichijō (Kōki Uchiyama), a normal high school student who happens to be the heir to a yakuza group. The attractive but violent transfer student Chitoge Kirisaki (Nao Tōyama), the heir to a rival yakuza group, transfers to his class, and the two must pretend to date to keep a war from breaking out between their families.

Viz Media is releasing the original manga digitally and in print. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.

Update: The release will include the Japanese audio track (not soundtrack) with English subtitles, and will not include "a premium chipboard artbox" as previously reported.
