Media Blasters announced at Liberty City Anime Con in New York on Friday that it will release the Yosuga no Sora: In Solitude Where We Are Least Alone and the My Wife is the Student Council President television anime series on Blu-ray Disc.

The company had previously released Yosuga no Sora on DVD in May 2015. The television anime adapts the adult bishōjo computer game of the same name, originally released in 2008 by Sphere. The anime was first announced in May 2010, and began airing in October of the same year.

The story of the game is set in the distant mountain village of Okukozome-chō. Haruka Kazugano and his twin sister Sora have fond childhood memories of going to the village to visit their grandfather during their summer vacations. However, after losing their parents in an accident, the two must move in with their grandfather.

Media Blasters announced in March that it had licensed the first season of the My Wife is the Student Council President erotic comedy anime. The company had streamed a dub voice-over video for the anime at the time, and it confirmed on Friday that it will release the anime with an English dub. The dub stars Brittany Lauda as Ui Wakana, and Matt Shipman as Hayato Izumi. Kocha Sound is producing the dub at Fever Dreams Sound Factory, and Justin Ramos is the ADR engineer. Media Blasters plans to release the anime on DVD, Blu-ray Disc, and on Crunchyroll later this year.

The "erotic comedy" manga follows a student council vice-president who is betrothed to the student president Ui Wakana as his wife. The anime based on Yumi Nakata's manga was adapted into 12 episodes that premiered in July 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan in both censored and uncensored versions. A second season will premiere in October.

Media Blasters also reaffirmed its previously announced plans to release Juden Chan on DVD, Blu-ray Disc, and on Crunchyroll. The company is listing the release under the title Juden-Chan: Recharged.

The company also again confirmed that it will release the Yami to Bōshi to Hon no Tabibito (Yamibō) anime on Blu-ray Disc in subtitle-only format.

Media Blasters released the anime on DVD on March 31, but the release contained the censorship blurring present in the anime's TV broadcast version, which is not present in the Japanese Blu-ray Disc release. Media Blasters said was able to acquire this new version. Media Blasters will announce a program where those who have purchased the DVD can upgrade their purchase to the future Blu-ray Disc release.

Media Blasters also announced that its Kitty Media label will release the Itadaki Seikei adult anime series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc later this year with an English dub.
