Funimation Entertainment announced at its industry panel at New York Comic Con on Thursday that it will release My-Hime, My-Otome, My-Otome Zwei, and My-Otome 0: S.IFR (My-Otome 0~S.ifr~) on Blu-ray and DVD combo packs on January 8. There will be three releases: My-Otome 0: S.IFR and My-Otome Zwei will bundle together in one set. Funimation announced in 2013 that it had licensed all four titles previously licensed by Bandai Entertainment.
Funimation also announced that it will release Keijo!!!!!!!! on Blu-ray Disc and DVD combo pack on February 6. The series will get a limited edition. Funimation's Blu-ray Disc/DVD combo pack release of Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is slated for 2018, and a dub announcement is forthcoming.
Bandai Entertainment described My-Hime:
Before coming to the Fuka Academy, all Mai Tokiha wanted was to live an ordinary high school life, but that's the last thing she's going to get. It turns out that Mai is a HiME, one of twelve girls with supernatural powers that are gathered at this school to fight the Orphans, demons that dwell around the school. A secret organization has other plans for the HiME than just demon-busting and Mai and the other HiME will have to risk something precious to protect the ones they love.
The anime premiered in 2004 and was followed by the My-Otome anime, which featured the same characters in an alternate world, in 2005. The My-Otome Zwei and My-Otome 0: S.IFR original video anime (OVAs) were a sequel and a prequel, respectively.
