On Monday September 4, Studio Canal will release Mamoru Hosoda's feature film The Boy and the Beast in three editions: a DVD, a Blu-ray (pictured) and a combi pack which includes the Blu-ray, DVD and an Ultra-Violet Digital Edition.

The American distributor Funimation described the film's story:

When Kyuta, a young orphan living on the streets of Shibuya, stumbles into a fantastic world of beasts, he's taken in by Kumatetsu, a gruff, rough-around-the-edges warrior beast who's been searching for the perfect apprentice. Despite their constant bickering, Kyuta and Kumatetsu begin training together and slowly form a bond as surrogate father and son. But when a deep darkness threatens to throw the human and beast worlds into chaos, the strong bond between this unlikely pair will be put to the ultimate test—a final showdown that will only be won if the two can finally work together using all of their combined strength and courage.

Animatsu will release a DVD edition of My Love Story, previously released as a Blu-ray Collector's Edition. Viz Media, which published Kazune Kawahara and Aruko's shōjo romantic comedy manga, described the story:

Takeo Gōda is a giant guy with a giant heart. Too bad the girls don't want him! (They want his good-looking best friend, Sunakawa.) Used to being on the sidelines, Takeo simply stands tall and accepts his fate. But one day when he saves a girl named Yamato from a harasser on the train, his (love!) life suddenly takes an incredible turn!

Manga Entertainment will release Naruto Shippuden Series 7, carrying episodes 297 to 348 on eight discs.
