Anime Limited will release the seven Original Video Anime episodes of the Mobile Suit Gundam UC (Unicorn) in a Blu-ray collection on September 7.

The set will contain a poster and a 20-page art booklet containing promotional art for the anime. On-disc extras include the “Story So Far”; Episode EX “One Hundred Years of Solitude”; Promotional Videos; Commercials; and "MS & Character Highlights."

Mobile Suit Gundam UC adapts Harutoshi Fukui's original Mobile Suit Gundam UC novel series, which is mainly set in the year Universal Century 0096, 16 years after the events of the One Year War depicted in the first Mobile Suit Gundam anime, and three years after the Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack anime film. In a renewed conflict between the Earth Federation and Neo Zeon remnants, the Vist Foundation has a potentially devastating secret from the founding of the Federation a century before.

Anime Limited summarised the series:

"Universal Century 0096. Three years after the last conflict between Neo Zeon and the Earth Federation Forces – as seen in Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack – the tentative peace of the Earth Sphere is about to be shattered again. Cardeas Vist, the head of the powerful Vist Foundation, has decided to hand over “Laplace's Box”, the secret of the Foundation's prosperity, to the supposed enemy, Neo Zeon.

"Banagher Links, a student at the space colony Industrial 7, rescues a mysterious girl who calls herself Audrey Burne. Audrey is seeking to prevent a war, but it seems she has come too late. As Banagher's home colony is devastated by the attacks of the enemy mobile suit Kshatriya, he finds his strange destiny and is forced to fight in the formidable weapon system known as the Unicorn Gundam."

Sunrise released the video anime series of seven episodes theatrically in Japan and on home video between 2010-2014. The first six episodes were about an hour long each, while the seventh episode was feature-length, running an hour and a half.

Manga Entertainment will release the TV series Cop Craft on Blu-ray and DVD. It is based on Shoji Gatoh's Cop Craft Dragnet Mirage Reloaded light novel series.

The story is set in San Teresa City on the fictional Pacific island of Kariaena. The "buddy police action" series follows the detective Kei Matoba and the alternate-world knight Tirana.

15 years ago, an unknown hyperspace gate opened over the Pacific. Beyond this gate lies Reto Semaani, a strange alternate world where fairies and demons live.

San Teresa City — a city where over two million immigrants live from both worlds. As a result, there are the haves and the have-nots. Here is the world's newest "city of dreams." But in the shadow of the chaos, crime is rampant: drugs, prostitution, and weapon trafficking. The detectives who stand up to these heinous crimes are in the San Teresa City Police. When the detective Kei Matoba and the alternate-world knight Tirana — two individuals who differ in gender, personality, and even world of origin — meet, an incident erupts.

The anime stars Kenjiro Tsuda as Kei and Mayu Yoshioka as Tilarna Exedilika. Shin Itagaki (2016 Berserk, Teekyū) directed the anime at Millepensee, and Gatoh himself was in charge of the series scripts. Hiromi Kimura adapted Range Murata's original character designs for animation.

Manga Entertainment will release the film Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion on Blu-ray and DVD. Sentai Filmworks previously described the film:

Far from the dungeon beneath Oraria rises a new threat, one the beautiful goddess Artemis has sworn to destroy with the help of her chosen warrior. But this fighter isn't the renowned Ais Wallenstein or another storied hero of Orario legend. Instead the fate of Artemis' quest falls upon the shoulders of Bell Cranell, who must partner with the goddess and stand against the menace lurking in the remains of a distant, ancient city. Although Bell is the ordained champion of Artemis and a member of the goddess Hestia's familia, their adventure will test every skill and take every ounce of courage that Bell has — and perhaps, along the way, turn him into the hero he has always aspired to be.

Katsushi Sakurabi (Flying Witch, Heaven's Memo Pad, Lostorage incited WIXOSS), an episode director on the television anime, directed the film at J.C. Staff instead of the television anime's series director Yoshiki Yamakawa. Fujino Ōmori, the author of the original light novel series, wrote the screenplay instead of the television anime's staff writers. Shigeki Kimoto once again adapted Suzuhito Yasuda's original character designs for animation. Keiji Inai composed the music as he did for the television anime.

Manga Entertainment will also release One Piece Collection 23 on DVD, carrying episodes 541 to 563 of the series.

Manga Entertainment will release Black Clover Season 2 Part 4 on Blu-ray and DVD, carrying episodes 84 to 90 of the series.

MVM will release a standard Blu-ray edition of the film Fate/stay night: Heaven's Feel II. lost butterfly.
