Announcement #5 | Aho Girl
TV Series Coming to Blu-ray (HD)
  • Japanese with English subtitles
  • Special Features include Clean OP/ED, Promo Clips
  • Limited to 1500 units
  • August 2022 release window.
Aho Girl is a definite buy for me. It's five years old at this point, so I'm surprised it's getting licensed now. Maybe the cost of licensing it dropped or it was bundled in with something else.

It's a shame that they didn't mention Gunbuster even for an update. I wonder if it's going to slip to next year.

I'm super happy to see Planet With finally getting a release. The show was a darling of anitwitter, but pretty much ignored by the wider fandom. It probably won't be a huge seller, but it's welcome news to the faithful.

Unfortunately that does make it's potential release in the UK even less likely. Honestly, I was hoping Sentai would pick it up so there would more chance of it falling into MVM's hands. That seems far less likely now,

Well, now that one show has finally escaped the Crunchy/Funi divirce black hole, I'll have keep my eyes out for whether this could lead to potential future news re: the likes Yuru Camp or Further than the Universe

i'm gonna be one of those 1500 owners, i love Hiroyuki's series, just wish Kodansha would license comic artist over here and consider a physical release of Girlfriend, Girlfriend, will be interesting to see with the crunchy/funi merge what happens with Girlfriend, Girlfriend

The Flying Phantom Ship is great news and all (and I always moan about something!) but I'd have thought we'd get Hakujaden or The Little Prince and the Eight-Headed Dragon before that, considering they've had recent 4K restorations. The Puss in Boots films have been restored by Toei recently as well, though I've not heard anything about Flying Phantom Ship.

OMG my friend was talking about that one a few weeks ago! Yeah it looks pretty fun and ridiculous I'd like to see it - tbf Virtua Fighter is supposed to be a blast too :)
I loved Ultimate Muscle! It never ever got a full DVD release (and even the manga was pretty hard to get and isn't available digitally) and it's probably the show I want more than anything else 😅

Virtua Fighter does look interesting though!

If you're in the UK I'd suggest you just wait for Amazon US to sell it through their UK site - might not be the cheapest but they do take care of all the fees and if you're a bit patient delivery is free (or you can pay for faster delivery). Other than that, UP1 https://www.up1.co.uk/ are decent and if it says it's in stock/immediate dispatch or something else meaning the same on their UK website then it will reach you quickly as that means they have copies available to ship from within the UK :) DGMW if someone else knows of other better options then please take their advice over mine but that's what I'd recommend, that or a seller on Ebay called toysandfilms Items for sale by toysandfilms | eBay but word to the wise - choose the more expensive postage option if you order from them, to minimize the chances of things getting lost in the post (I got a full refund when this happened tbf but obviously not ideal not getting the item one has ordered to say the least, whereas everytime I chose the paid postage option the item did actually arrive). I believe @Darren Skippings and/or @Denny Fisher know the toysandfilms seller and can also vouch for them :)

With Discotek titles I tend to make one big yearly order via Rightstuf that I save up for. They tend to do one or two Discotek-centric sales per year I believe.

toysandfilms (4our services ltd) are pretty reliable.
I've spoken to Chris a while back as I use to pickup Australian releases aswell. I believe there's a contact number but it was a while ago since I used it, check his sellers info for more info
He rarely replies from his actual email address so your best bet is to message him directly on eBay if you have any concerns.

for those of us in AUS i think on there Ebay store they always charge about $29USD for postage and i also have to pay 10% tax across the total cost if i recall , was going to ask who could advise on where to import from at my End of the pond ? :p iv been using rightstuff as the item cost itself was cheaper than amazon and in stock .....

I've used UP1 and toys and films on ebay before and have found them both to be very reliable. Hello again by the way everyone, reports of my death have obviously been greatly exaggerated. Just been very busy.

Was floored that Phantom flying ship is getting a release from Discotek, really fun little movie in my opinion. Reviewed it for the blog a few years ago.

According to their Facebook post about Aho Girl, it looks like it's 2,000 units now. I guess they underestimated how many people want to watch an idiot eating bananas.
