On Monday June 13, Anime Limited will release Tokyo Ghoul √A as both a Collector's Edition Blu-ray (pictured), limited to a thousand units, and a standard DVD. (A standard Blu-ray release will follow in July.) The Collector's Blu-ray will include a hardback art book.
The series is the continuation of the original Tokyo Ghoul anime, based on the manga by Sui Ishida.
MVM is releasing Season 2 of Kamisama Kiss (left) on both Blu-ray and DVD. In the story, Nanami finds herself homeless after her father leaves. She ends up saving a strange man, Mikage, who in turn offers to let her stay over at his house — only to discover it is a Shinto shrine. Mikage is a deity who has just transferred his status and his yōkai to Nanami.
Curzon Artificial Eye is releasing Our Little Sister (right), a live-action adaptation of a manga by Akimi Yoshida (Banana Fish), on Blu-ray and DVD. The film is directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda (Nobody Knows, Still Walking, Miracle).
Based on Yoshida's manga Umimachi Diary (Seaside Town Diary), Our Little Sister takes place in Kamakura, and revolves around Yoshino, the middle of three sisters. One morning, after she wakes up in a man's room, her father's obituary is delivered to her. Yoshino hadn't met her father in a long time, since her mother divorced him. After not seeing him for so long, she doesn't know how to feel at the announcement of his death. Only at her father's funeral do the sisters meet their half-sister whom they had never met.
The Umimachi Diary (Seaside Town Diary) manga is a crossover with Yoshida's 1995 Lovers' Kiss manga, which was adapted into a live-action film in 2003.
