New releases from Manga Entertainment and MVM

On Monday February 29, Manga Entertainment will release Evangelion: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo in Blu-ray, DVD and Collector's Edition (pictured) formats. The Collector's Edition includes the film on both formats, plus a 52-page booklet.

The film is the third part of Hideaki Anno's four-part remake of Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series, and earned more than 5.1 billion yen during its theater run in Japan. While the first film stayed close to the original television series, the second film went in a different direction, and the third film went still further in its own storyline.

MVM will release its Collector's Edition of No Game No Life, containing the 12-part anime on DVD and Blu-ray, as well as a three-disc soundtrack CD set. (Separate Blu-ray and DVD editions of the series are due to follow on March 28.) Sentai Filmworks previously described the story:

On the internet, they're legends: the tag-team duo known as BLANK, famed for their incredible game-playing skills. In the real world, however, the lives of 18 year old Sora and his 11 year old stepsister Shiro have been spiraling out of control. Now existing as shut-ins, they rarely leave their house and are unable to be separated without suffering panic attacks. Games, for them, are the safest retreat from reality. Until they win a chess match against a mysterious opponent known as Tet and find themselves pulled into a game bigger than any they could have ever imagined. Now, in a world where the outcome of games determines the fates of both civilizations and species, they must defend Humanity in the ultimate challenge, vying against a host of otherworldly competitors for the right to rule them all! But if they fail, it means slavery or destruction for all mankind. No pressure, of course! Can two misfits who can barely handle their own lives somehow rise to the occasion and save the human race?

Animatsu is releasing season 1 of the sports series Haikyu!! on both Blu-ray and DVD. This anime adaptation of Haruichi Furudate's Haikyu!! volleyball manga follows Shōyō Hinata (voiced by Ayumu Murase ), who began playing volleyball after seeing the "small giants" who played the sport when he was in elementary school. He joins Kurasuno High School's volleyball team, vowing revenge against a former rival.

An earlier version of this story wrongly claimed that Haikyuu!! was being released by MVM; apologies for the mistake.
