    Might as well help out with this thread, NIS America have announced release plans for Chronicles of the Going Home Club with a Premium Edition (2014 style sets):


    Contains Japanese language with English subtitles in addition to some extra features and a hardcover booklet (like the other Premium sets). Available in March 2015.

    So far that's Toradora!, Cardcaptor Sakura (though much larger due to the case), The Eccentric Family, Genshiken: Second Generation and now this title to use the new Premium style sets.


    English dub will be included with Sentai Filmworks' release for No Game No Life on Blu-ray and DVD. In addition there's some merchandise coming out.


    Animax English dub will be included with Siren Visual's release for Nodame Cantabile. Confirmed from a Facebook response on the announcement page.

    Madman have stated that Ben-To and Sankarea will be available in their region in April:
    With Ben-To planned for February, perhaps Sankarea is set for March over in the US.

    Wow! Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex Blu-ray with English dub and sub... from Korea?

    Looks pricey for just the first Gig though.

    The latest Studio Ghibli film to be released, When Marnie Was There, will be getting a Japanese release in March 2015:


    Both Blu-ray and DVD will include English subtitles.

    I'm really, genuinely excited for this - read the book it's based on this summer and it's pure Ghibli, but with a real dark streak to it. I always like to joke that there's potential for Marnie to be the closest Ghibli have ever been to having a proper Tsundere character.

    One Week Friends, cool. Loved the first couple episodes of that, hope someone gets it for the UK on Blu (though that seems unlikely to me) otherwise, I'll wait to see what Sentai & Madman do with the show.

    Free really has something going for it when companies jump on the license for the second season with no news of the first. I'll pick it up, depending on the art work as I don't really want my friends to see some of those key visuals haha.

    Yeah, it'll be interesting to see if Free makes its way over here as it seems to have a lot of hype and appetite going for it online and in terms of coverage, but I can't exactly see it flying off the shelves in the UK - when was the last time a UK distributor released a show like that? Ouran maybe?

    Sentai have announced the acquisition of The Unlimited -Hyoubu Kyousuke- (retitled to Unlimited Psychic Squad) in the US: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/20 ... ime/.82252

    Weird timing; I was thinking about switching back to this avatar this morning and then they finally licensed the show to force my hand. Hurrah!

    I really like the approach Sentai are taking with this LE, and I love the mock up box design, but I hope to god that they actually put some effort into the actual content on disc for this release compared to their standard ones.
    A pretty box isn't going to sell me on the release if it's then paired with their usual H-Dub, okay at best video quality and yellow subs. I really loved this show and I'd love nothing more than for Sentai to prove me wrong for once.
