Funimation Lists Release of The Tatami Galaxy Anime on BD/DVD in September
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Funimation and retailer Right Stuf are currently listing on their websites that Funimation will release Masaaki Yuasa's The Tatami Galaxy anime series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD with subtitles only on September 3. The listings state the release will feature an OVA, promotional videos, commercials, and "Europe Kikaku's Guide to Kyoto" as video bonuses. The release would mark the first time the anime is released on home video in the United States.
Funimation describes the series:
College is full of opportunities to leave one's comfort zone. One third year student is constantly fantasizing about how his life might differ had he joined various campus circles—chasing, with mixed results, an idealistic rose-colored campus life where romance, friendships, and purpose fuse into a perfect university experience… at least until bad luck, questionable decisions, and dubious relationships enter the mix!
The 11-episode series adapts Tomihiko Morimi's Yojō-Han Shinwa Taikei novel, and it aired on Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block in April 2010. Funimation streamed the series as it aired. Crunchyroll later also streamed the series, but removed the series from its platform in November.
