posted on by Andrew Osmond
On Monday February 27, Manga Entertainment will release Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! -Heart Throb- as both a DVD and a Deluxe Edition Blu-ray. (The Deluxe Edition will contain four art cards and a poster.)
This is the sequel to the original Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! In the second series, the relationship between Yuuta and Rikka starts to develop slowly in their own unique way as they begin to live together with Kuzuha under one roof. However, "chuunibyou"-plagued Satone, Yuuta's old acquaintance, showed up in the most unexpected place and time; challenging their budding, yet fragile relationship. Meanwhile, the rest of the Oriental Magick Napping Society in Summer club members continue to expand their own unique selves and relationships with one another.
MVM will release Owarimonogatari, part of the 'Monogatari' franchise created by NisiOisin and animated by Studio Shaft, on Blu-ray and DVD. During the month of October of his third year in high school, Koyomi Araragi is introduced to a transfer student named Ougi Oshino by his underclassman Kanbaru Suruga. Ougi tells Koyomi that she has something she wishes to consult with him. When she draws the map of Naoestu High School, she finds something peculiar.
The show stars Shintarō Asanuma as Kōsaku Hata, a student and idol otaku at Tamo Agricultural High School (Tamo Nōrin Kōkō, shortened to No-Rin). Yukari Tamura plays Ringo Kinoshita, a new transfer student who recently retired as the idol Yuka Kusakabe. Shin Oonuma (WATAMOTE, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, Dusk maiden of Amnesia) directed the series at SILVER LINK (WATAMOTE, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya, Dusk maiden of Amnesia). Michiko Yokote (Genshiken Second Season, Princess Tutu, xxxHOLiC) is in charge of series composition and Masahito Onoda (Student Council's Discretion Level 2) adapted Kippu's original character designs.
Funimation is also releasing Absolute Duo as a Blu-ray/DVD combi pack. Funimation previously described the story:
In a world of heroes who wield magical weapons known as Blaze, Thor Kokonoe's manifests instead as a shield. Things aren't all bad for Thor, though: he's enrolled in an elite school that pairs students up into Duos, and his own partner is the beautiful Julie Sigtuna, a silver-haired exchange student who wields a wicked pair of blades. Along with a bevy of Blazing beauties, Thor's high school adventures are just beginning!
Atsushi Nakayama (A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives, Is This a Zombie? episode director) is directing the anime at 8-Bit (Infinite Stratos, Grisaia no Kajitsu) with the series scripts supervised by Takamitsu Kouno (Minami-ke Tadaima, Kyo no Gononi). Keiichi Sano (Heaven's Memo Pad, Strike the Blood) is designing the characters for the series, and is also serving as animation director along with Norie Tanaka (M3 the dark metal chief animation director, Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic episode animation director).
