The first version of this story omitted two of Monday's releases; apologies for the error.
On Monday November 21, Anime Limited is releasing its 'Makoto Shinkai Twin Pack,' containing Blu-ray editions of two of the director's early works: Voices of a Distant Star and The Place Promised in Our Early Days.
Funimation is releasing a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack edition of Yurikuma Arashi. Funimation has described the story:
After an asteroid explosion and meteor shower lit up the sky over planet earth, strange adorable bears began to attack and devour humans. The earthlings responded with violence of their own, and in the end, a massive barrier – the Wall of Extinction – was erected to separate man from bear. This fragile peace lasted until two high school girls encounter a yuri flower blooming – only to be shaken by the piercing warning of the Bear Alarm! Once again, bear and man- or bear and girl -will be pitted against each other in a deadly and mysterious showdown—brought to you buy Kunihiko Ikuhara, the director of Sailor Moon and Revolutionary Girl Utena.
Anime Limited will release a Blu-ray edition of Lucky Star. The 2007 Kyoto Animation series portrays the lives of several school girls attending a Japanese high school with a very loose humor tone. The main character is Konata Izumi, an athletic and intelligent girl who, despite these attributes, is not in a sports club, and her grades remain low. Her laziness at school is due to her love for anime and video games, and she is not interested in much else.
Anime Limited will release the first of its two-part Collector's Edition Blu-ray of the 2003 Fullmetal Alchemist series, containing the first 27 episodes.
MVM will release Log Horizon Season 2 Part 2 on Blu-ray and DVD.
Manga Entertainment will release Season 1 of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, carrying 52 episodes on six discs.
