Re: Upcoming U.S. Anime Releases - 2012 Edition

Great news about Bunny Drop (Usagi Drop). Any chance they'll do a standard edition? I love the show, but I don't want to pay extra for artbooks and other stuff.



Does NIS America distribute products to Amazon or just the anime retailers?

It's pretty much a given that there will eventually be a standard release. It may hinge on how good the premium edition sells. Once the inventory starts to get low, they probably will solicit a standard edition.

Anime retailers are pretty much the official retailers. And they are Right Stuf, The Anime Corner Store, Anime Pavilion, Anime Castle, and NIS America’s Online Store.

Yeah...ANN's article title can be a little misleading (for some). They are not dissolved for me if they are still releasing DVD and Blu-ray releases.

Re: Upcoming U.S. Anime Releases - 2012 Edition

It looks like we have a release delay from FUNimation. Amazon.com has updated the release date for Ergo Proxy from 7/3 to 8/28. TRSI hasn't updated the release date as of this post.

The delay probably has to do with the upcoming JP DVD and BD-Box releases.

SYNOPSIS: Sometimes music and words come together so perfectly that the combination is far more powerful than either would be alone. In much the same way, the five members of the Sakuragaoka Girl's High School's Light Music Club have become far more than just a group of girls with similar interests. More, even, than just a group of friends. Through the medium of music they’ve found a common course in life, and whatever the future may bring, they know they can get through it if they stand together. Which makes the coming end of the school year and the graduation of the four older members something that’s dreaded as much as it’s looked forward to. But in the meantime there’s so much going on, it’s as life has decided to throw everything it can at them. Going to music festivals won’t be hard to swing, but running a marathon? That will be a stretch! Yearbook photos? The horror! And a school play with Mio and Ritsu cast as Romeo and Juliet? Ooo, VERY awkward. And then, of course, there’s one big final performance for the band! The tempo is rising and emotions run wild as the final encore approaches in K-ON! Season 2 Collection 2!!

SYNOPSIS: You've heard of Mulan, you may have heard of Wu Zetian, but even before those legendary lady warriors, the soil of Ancient China had proved fertile ground for the cultivation of an elite force of ferociously female fighters! The saga begins as a girl named Aisha takes on the name Kan'u and sets forth on a journey that inspires others to shatter the shackles of their own tradition and take up the way of the sword. And once you and the girls have accomplished one heroic quest, how do you top it except by taking up another? And then another! (Some epochs it just seems like a woman's work is never done!) All three epic adventures in the spectacular Koihime Muso series, including the OVAs, are collected together at last as the ancient epic Romance of the Three Kingdoms takes on an unexpected new look and some very feminine curves in KOIHIME MUSO - THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION!
