posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Right Stuf announced at the Naka-Kon convention in Kansas on Sunday that it is releasing the Sound of the Sky and Junjo Romantica anime series on Blu-ray Disc. The company also revealed it will release Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky on DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
Nozomi Entertainment's Blu-ray Disc releases of Sound of the Sky and Junjo Romantica will be both shows' first Blu-ray Disc release in North America. Sound of the Sky ships on June 6. Nozomi Entertainment's Blu-ray Disc release of Junjō Romantica will ship this year. The company plans to release both seasons of the anime on Blu-ray Disc.
Crunchyroll streamed the Sound of the Sky television anime series as it aired in 2010, and the site is also streaming the bonus episodes 7.5 and 13. Right Stuf and Nozomi Entertainment released the series on DVD in 2011 and again in a Litebox version in 2013. Both versions contained both bonus episodes.
Right Stuf released the first season of Junjo Romantica on DVD in 2010 and 2014, and released the second season on DVD in 2011 and 2014. Funimation streamed the third season as it aired.
Right Stuf released an import of the Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky film on Blu-ray Disc in July, and that release featured an English dub and English subtitles. The new release will ship on Blu-ray Disc and DVD this year, and will again feature English subtitles and an English dub. The film is a director's cut edition of the Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt net anime. Both anime are based on Yasuo Ohtagaki's Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt manga. The director's cut edition includes additional scenes.
Right Stuf confirmed it will also release Mobile Suit Gundam MS Igloo this year on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. The company had previously stated the anime would ship in early 2017. The release will have Japanese audio with English subtitles. 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 also reconfirmed that it will release Mobile Suit Gundam Wing this year on Blu-ray Disc and DVD. The release will include English subtitles and an English dub.
