About Mobile Suit Gundam 0080 War in the Pocket
The great war between the Earth Federation and the Principality of Zeon is almost over. At the neutral space colony of Libot, the Federation secretly constructs a powerful new Gundam mobile suit.

About Mobile Suit Gundam F91
U.C. 0123. After a generation of peace, the Earth Federation has begun to build new space colonies to house humanity's growing population. But a new force, the aristocratic Crossbone Vanguard, plans to seize the colonies of the newly constructed Frontier Side for itself. As their home becomes a battlefield, a handful of young civilians struggle to escape the conflict. To save his friends and family, the reluctant warrior Seabook Arno becomes the pilot of a new Gundam which bears the code name F91.

Mobile Suit Gundam F91 will be released in early 2017 on DVD and Blu-ray featuring English and Japanese audio with English subtitles.

About Mobile Suit Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory
Universal Century 0083. Having triumphed in the One-Year War, the Earth Federation has grown complacent, while the last remnants of Zeonic forces have been planning one final stand. It all hinges on ace Zeon pilot Anavel Gato stealing one of the new prototype Gundams out from under the Federation's nose. With a nuclear-equipped Gundam missing and their pride wounded, the Federation ship Albion and rookie pilot Kou Uraki set out in pursuit of the Zeonic thieves and the stolen Gundam.

Mobile Suit Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in early 2017 featuring English and Japanese audio with English subtitles.

About Mobile Suit Gundam 0083 Afterglow of Zeon
Nina Purpleton is caught up in the maelstrom of the Delaz Conflict, and she sees the story from beginning to end. She remembers how the trouble started when the experimental Gundam GP02A was stolen, and she recalls the sight of men who were willing to die for their cause… The Delaz Conflict begins in the vast land of Australia, and as the violence continues to escalate, the theater of war moves into outer space. And always at the heart of the storm are Kou Uraki and Anavel Gato, two men whose fates are intertwined. Kou, who is forced to endure an increasing number of humiliations at Gato's hands, and who constantly chases his longtime enemy… Gato, who has devoted his life to reviving the Principality of Zeon, and who acts as the core of the Delaz Fleet... The struggle between these two men takes a sudden turn when the GP02A attacks the naval review, and immediately afterwards, a plot to drop a colony is quickly set into motion. In Earth's orbit, amid the chaos as the full scope of the Delaz Fleet's “Operation Stardust” is revealed, Kou's stubbornness and Gato's convictions come crashing against each other. The year is Universal Century 0083, and Nina will see the war with her own eyes, as she becomes a witness to history.

Afterglow of Zeon (also known as The Last Blitz of Zeon) will be released for the first time ever in North America on DVD and Blu-ray in early 2017 and will feature Japanese audio with English subtitles.

About Martian successor Nadesico
The Earth, its moon and its Martian colonies are under alien attack, but the war against the “Jovian lizards” has, so far, been nothing short of a series of disasters.

Disgusted by the incompetence of Earth's military, the independent arms manufacturer Nergal builds its own space battleship and plans to launch a desperate offensive to save humanity. But due to a shortage of trained soldiers, they've assembled the most unorthodox crew to ever launch into orbit! With a pacifist cook-turned-unwilling mecha pilot and a ditsy admiral's daughter in command, can this unprecedented gathering of geeks, misfits and anime fans prevail against the Jovian menace?

Martian Successor Nadesico will be released on Blu-ray in 2017 in a complete collection containing the entire 26-episode TV series as well as the Nadesico Prince of Darkness movie. The set will feature English and Japanese audio with English subtitles.
