On Monday July 19, Anime Limited will release Love Live! The School Idol Movie as a Collectors Blu-ray, including a 24-page booklet including character profiles.

Anime Limited describes the title:

"Although μ's, the defending champions of the school idol tournament, plans to dissolve their group after the graduation of their senior members, they receive news that leads them to holding a concert event! With the clock ticking, what kind of meaning will the μ's members find in performing the most exciting live performance?"

MVM will release the series Killing Bites on Blu-ray. Sentai Filmworks previously described the anime:

"By the time Yuya Nomoto discovers his so-called friends have duped him into a clandestine plot to kidnap a high school girl, they're already dead. Things go from bad to worse as Yuya is dragged into a cutthroat world of underground bloodsport known as Killing Bites, where Therianthropes — brutal gene-edited killing machines — fight to the death for rival, power-hungry forces who manipulate society from the shadows."

The television anime adaptation of illustrator Kazasa Sumita (Witchblade Takeru) and storywriter Shinya Murata's (Jackals) Killing Bites manga premiered on the Animeism programming block on MBS and TBS in January 2018. The anime's unaired "director's cut" streamed worldwide on Amazon Prime Video. The anime had 12 episodes.

Yasuto Nishikata (episode director for The Heroic Legend of Arslan, The Seven Deadly Sins) directed the series at LIDEN FILMS (Love and Lies, The Heroic Legend of Arslan). Aoi Akashiro (Classroom of the Elite, Fuuka) was in charge of series composition, and Kazuo Watanabe (The Heroic Legend of Arslan, Oku-sama wa Joshi Kōsei) designed the characters. Yasuharu Takanashi (Naruto Shippūden, Fairy Tail) composed the music. fripSide performed the opening theme song "killing bites," and Kitsunetsuki performed the ending theme song "Kedamono Damono."

Anime Limited will also release the second volume of the series Demon Slayer as a Collector's Blu-ray, carrying parts 14 to 26. It will also include an art booklet and art cards.

Funimation will release the second volume of No Guns Life, carrying parts 13 to 24.
