Right Stuf and Nozomi Entertainment announced at the Anime Nebraskon event in Omaha on Saturday that Right Stuf will release the Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team video anime series and the Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team, Miller's Report film on Blu-ray Disc and DVD. The company also announced it will release the Mobile Suit Gundam MS Igloo CG anime on Blu-ray Disc and DVD, and also revealed it will release the Mobile Suit Gundam - The Movie Trilogy on Blu-ray Disc. Additionally, Nozomi Entertainment revealed that it will release Galaxy Angel on Blu-ray Disc on February 7.
Right Stuf will release the Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team OVA and the Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team, Miller's Report compilation film in early 2017 with English and Japanese audio and with English subtitles. Right Stuf describes both works:
The year is Univeral Century 0079. The Federation has begun mass production of the prototype Gundams for use by their ground forces. Shiro Amada, commander of the 08th MS Team, must lead his squadron through fierce fighting on the ground. However, the Zeons are developing a secret project which could tip the balance of power! Can Shiro and his ragtag team of castoffs, rejects, and bad attitudes save the Federation?
Right Stuf will release Mobile Suit Gundam MS Igloo in early 2017, and the release will have Japanese audio with English subtitles. Right Stuf describes the anime:
Universal Century 0079. It has been some half a century since human beings migrated to space due to the overpopulation of Earth. In Universal Century 0079, Side 3, the farthest cluster of colonies from Earth, began a war of independence against the Earth Federation Government. This was the beginning of a massive and tragic war that is later to be called the One-Year War…
The CG-animated Mobile Suit Gundam MS Igloo series is comprised of the three-episode Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: The Hidden One Year War film, the three-episode Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: Apocalypse 0079 video anime series, and the three-episode Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO 2: Jūryoku Sensen video anime spinoff series.
Right Stuf will release the Mobile Suit Gundam - The Movie Trilogy on Blu-ray Disc in early 2017 with Japanese audio and English subtitles.
The first film in the trilogy uses footage from the original 1979 television anime, while the next two films add new footage. Bandai Entertainment previously released the films in the West on DVD, and Right Stuf and Sunrise released the films on DVD on January 5. The Gundam.info portal site streamed all three films for free between July 22-September 21 with English, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), and Korean subtitles.
Right Stuf also reaffirmed its previously revealed plans to release the Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory OVA and the Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: The Afterglow of Zeon film in early 2017 on DVD and Blu-ray Disc with Japanese audio and English subtitles.
Nozomi Entertainment's release of Galaxy Angel will include the "Now I Get It! GA Lectures" with onscreen text translated into English for the first time. The release will include English and Japanese audio and English subtitles.
Update: Right Stuf confirmed on its Facebook page on Monday that it will release all of the Mobile Suit Gundam MS Igloo series, including Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: The Hidden One Year War, Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: Apocalypse 0079, and Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO 2: Jūryoku Sensen. The company will release all three parts as a single set.
