How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord and Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Released Monday

posted on by Andrew Osmond

On Monday February 17, Manga Entertainment will release the 12-part series How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord on Blu-ray and DVD. J-Novel Club described the story:

"In the MMORPG Cross Reverie, Takuma Sakamoto is so powerful that he is lauded as the “Demon Lord” by other players. One day, he is summoned to another world – but with the same appearance he had in the game! There, he meets two girls who both proclaim themselves to be his Summoner. They had performed an Enslavement Ritual to turn him into their Summon... but that's when Takuma's passive ability "Magic Reflection" activated! Instead, it was the girls who had become enslaved! Though Takuma may have been the strongest Sorcerer there was, he had no idea how to talk with other people. That's when he makes his choice: to act based on his persona from the game!"

Yūta Murano (Brave Beats, Dream Festival!) directed the anime at Ajia-do.

Manga Entertainment will also release JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Set Three on Blu-ray. This contains the second half of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, carrying episodes 25 to 48 of that arc. Manga Entertainment describes the series as follows:

"Having crossed continents and cheated death, Jotaro, Joseph, and crew finally arrive in Egypt to root out the charismatic evil threatening the Joestar lineage and the world. Fighting Stand with Stand, the ever-clever Joestars are put to the ultimate test as a bizarre new army of adversaries hailing from the Egyptian pantheon strike in ways more brutal and outrageous than ever before. Thankfully, a new ally has arrived to assist the humans. The question is, can the team come together in time to unravel the mystery of DIO's Stand?"

MVM will release a standard Blu-ray edition of Kizumonogatari Part 2: Nekketsu. This is the second film in the Kizumonogatari film trilogy, which is a prequel to the original Bakemonogatari series.

Anime Limited will also release the first 25-part season of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 as a standard Blu-ray.
