Anime Limited is releasing a Collector's Edition Combi Pack edition of Tiger & Bunny The Movie -The Rising-, containing both a Blu-ray and DVD. Set after the end of the TV series, the film is an all-new story. It revolves around a mystery that happens on the day of the "Justice Day" festival that celebrates Sternbild's legendary goddess. Yūichi Nakamura joined the cast as Golden Ryan, Barnaby Brooks Jr.'s new partner in the film. Character designer Masakazu Katsura (Zetman, Video Girl Ai, DNA²) also made his voice-acting debut in a cameo for the new movie.

MVM is also releasing SoniAni: Super Sonico the Animation on Blu-ray and DVD. Sentai Filmworks previously described the story:

Saying Sonico is an incredibly busy young woman is an understatement. She juggles a modeling career, part-time work at her grandmother's bar, and performs lead vocals and guitar in an all-girl band all while attending college! Not to mention taking care of her five cats - or is that the other way around? When her workload gets a little too heavy, she can count on her fellow musicians Suzu and Furi and the rest of her friends for a stabilizing influence. Get ready for the bounciest adventure ever as this three girl band shakes, rattles, rolls and takes Tokyo by storm!

The final MVM release this week is the third season of Familiar of Zero, on both Blu-ray and DVD. The show, which is based on late author Noboru Yamaguchi's light novel series, centers on Loise Francoise le Blanc, a witch in training who is known by her classmates as "Louise the Zero." During a ritual, Loise accidentally conjures Saito, a teenage boy from earth, and the two are bound by the laws of magic as master and servant forever.

Anime Limited will release the third and final volume of Kill la Kill, on both Blu-ray (pictured) and DVD. It carries the final five TV episodes, the OAV episode, and a 132-page art book.

Manga Entertainment will release Bleach Series 15 Part 2, subtitled "The Invading Army." It carries episodes 330 to 342.
