Amazon UK is listing Blu-ray and DVD releases of the series Seraph of the End on May 23, from Universal Pictures. Both the Blu-ray and DVD releases are listed as 264 minutes over two discs. The only language given in the listing is Japanese.
Update - UK Anime Network reports that a representative of Universal Pictures has said that the English dub will also be included.
Additionally, a listing on the zavvi website describes both the DVD and Blu-ray editions as follows: 'Collecting the first 12 episodes of series one of this ground-breaking anime, this strictly limited special collector's edition contains a 134 page book of interviews, character profiles and artwork (reprinting everything from the original Japanese releases) together with artcards, poster and trading cards unique to this edition.' However, zavvi also gives the release date of both the DVD and Blu-ray as November 5 2017.
The original manga by novelist Takaya Kagami (The Legend of the Legendary Heroes, A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives), manga creator Daisuke Furuya, and manga artist Yamato Yamamoto takes place in a world where an unknown virus has killed the entire human population except for children. Those children were then enslaved by vampires. The manga centres on Yūichirō Hyakuya, a human who dreams of becoming strong enough to kill all vampires.
Hiroyuki Sawano (Aldnoah.Zero, Attack on Titan, Blue Exorcist, Mobile Suit Gundam UC, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings, The Seven Deadly Sins) produced and co-composed the music with Takafumi Wada, Asami Tachibana, and Megumi Shiraishi. Sawano also produced the opening and ending themes.
Daisuke Tokudo directed the series from scripts by Hiroshi Seko. Satoshi Kadowaki adapted the character designs. Wit Studio animated the series.
