posted on by Andrew Osmond
Anime Limited has announced that it will release the series Charlotte on Blu-ray and DVD. It will be released in two parts, with the first part on May 29; both parts will be released as a Collector's Edition Blu-ray/DVD and also a standard DVD. The title can be pre-ordered at the above link.
Aniplex described the story:
One day, a small percentage of adolescents start to experience an onset of special abilities. Yu Otosaka is one of these ability-wielders and he decides to use his power – the ability to take over any target's body for five seconds, to get accepted into a prestigious high school. Just when he is about to start his dream high school life as the popular honor student, a girl named Nao Tomori appears before him. Little does he know, this encounter reveals the cruel fate awaiting the special ability-wielders.
The series began streaming outside Japan last July on Hulu, Crunchyroll, Viewster, Daisuki, and the Aniplex Channel. Key released the anime in celebration of its 15th anniversary, and the series is Jun Maeda's second original anime work, with the first being Angel Beats! in 2010.
