Big News on Our Free! –Eternal Summer- BD/DVD Release

FREEWe are upgrading all three releases of Free! -Eternal Summer- to include the OVA, a fourteenth episode of the series that was not broadcast on Japanese television or on simulcast! This will affect the Premium Edition, Limited Edition, and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack. All three will now be available February 16, 2016 (but pre-order now)!


We’ve been working hand-in-hand with our licensing partners in Japan to be able to make this change for you, and through collaborating together, we are now able to put the series and OVA together. This is a new opportunity that hasn’t been available before, so we’re excited to be bringing all of Free! -Eternal Summer- to fans in one single package.


What does this mean for you? If you’ve pre-ordered the series already, no sweat—your order will remain the same, but your home video release will now include the extra content. If you haven’t pre-ordered yet, you can do so now—pre-order before the release date and you’ll also be entered to win some great prizes! (If you’ve already pre-ordered, you’re already automatically entered.)


The OVA is really pretty special—an all-out water gun fight full-length episode with the Iwatobi and Samezuka boys, full of hilarity and drama and wet swimmer boys and… maid outfits? Who’s going to come out on top?! Suffice to say, if you’re a Free! fan craving more content after the end of the TV series, you won’t want to miss out on this one.


Need more reasons to pre-order? Check out everything you get in the Free! –Eternal Summer- “For the Future” Premium Edition:


  • The Free! –Eternal Summer- Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack, featuring a gorgeous rigid chipboard box with water gloss effect inspired by the Japanese release
  • A full-color art book, including many gorgeous pieces exclusive only to the original Japanese releases
  • Seven glossy art cards also using exclusive, highly detailed art from the covers of the Japanese releases—you’ll definitely want to frame these
  • A color sports towel, so you can take the boys to the pool or beach!
  • An Iwatobi and a Samezuka decal to show off your school pride
  • And finally, everything housed in a handsome collector’s box to hold all your Free! collectibles



Customers who pre-order the Premium Edition will be entered to win a 1/8 scale figure of Iwatobi High School’s resident water lover, Haruka Nanase!


The Limited Edition and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack are also available.


And if you haven’t checked it out yet, below is the trailer for the series!



Regarding the Tokyo Ghoul Season 1 Collector’s Edition

Hey Tokyo Ghoul fans, we’ve got some updates and changes for you on the Season 1 release, so we wanted to make sure you have the latest news. We know you’re ready to eat up this title as soon as possible!


In the process of manufacturing the Season 1 Collector’s Edition, we found some physical defects in the finished product that we just couldn’t accept. This does mean that the Collector’s Edition will be delayed, but these issues will NOT affect the Standard or Limited Edition – those will still be released as planned on September 22nd. We currently don’t have a release date for the corrected Collector’s Edition. As soon as we do, we will communicate it to you.


If you have already pre-ordered a Collector’s Edition, your order is absolutely still valid, and we’ll get this new production run out to you as soon as we can.


Thanks again for all of your patience as we work through this process!

Series Summary:

An essential addition to any anime collection, Fullmetal Alchemist recounts the compelling story of the Elric brothers: Two young alchemists who sacrificed innocence and flesh when they ignored the laws of Alchemy in an attempt to resurrect their mother. The horrors they recklessly unleash mark the beginning of an adventure that leads an unforgettable cast of characters from darkness to light and back again.

In an era of war and corruption, State Alchemist Edward Elric and his brother Alphonse desperately search for the Philosopher’s Stone. The legendary artifact is their last hope to restore what they’ve lost – but how far will they go to get it? From the ashes of their childhood, Edward and Alphonse quickly rise to fame within the ranks of the military, realizing along the way that the power to create is only ever a breath away from the power to destroy. And whether they’re up against monsters, madmen, or military officials, the bond these brothers share will be the greatest weapon they have in the fight for their lives.



Free! -Eternal Summer- “For the Future” Premium Edition AND OVA News!

We’ve had a wave of recent announcements and events for the swimming anime phenomenon Free! -Eternal Summer-, but we’re not done yet! Today, fresh from our AnimeExpo panel, we’re revealing two new big pieces of news—a Free! ES Premium Edition AND news about the long-awaited OVA episode!


If you’re a hardcore Free! fan looking to add a really special splash to your collection, we’re unveiling today the Free! -Eternal Summer- “For the Future” Premium Edition, full of totally exclusive special additions to show some extra love for our favorite swimboys.


The Premium Edition will include not only the Free! -Eternal Summer- Limited Edition that we unveiled earlier this month (featuring that gorgeous rigid chipboard box with water gloss effect!) but also these collectibles you can’t get anywhere else:


  • A full-color art book, including many gorgeous pieces exclusive only to the original Japanese releases
    • Seven glossy art cards also using exclusive, highly detailed art from the covers of the Japanese releases—you’ll definitely want to frame these
    • A color sports towel, so you can take the boys to the pool or beach!
    • An Iwatobi and a Samezuka decal to show off your school pride
    • And finally, everything housed in a handsome collector’s box to hold all your Free! collectibles


These items are exclusive to this release and won’t be remade once the Premium Edition’s (one and only!) print run sells out, so pre-order now before they’re all gone for good! We’ll be revealing a preview of these items soon.


PLUS! Customers who pre-order the Premium Edition from will automatically be entered to win a gorgeously sculpted 1/8 scale figure of everyone’s favorite water-lover, Haruka Nanase, from Alter! These highly detailed figures are sold out in Japan and pretty rare to find, so order by September 29 to get a shot.





We’ve also been receiving a lot of questions about the Free! -Eternal Summer- OVA, a special unaired full episode featuring the Iwatobi and Samezuka boys in an intense, dramatic, no-holds-barred (and totally hilarious) water gun battle. We’re excited to finally announce that we do have the rights to this OVA, and it will be released in 2016.


We know that some fans hoped the OVA would be included in the Eternal Summer release. Given the Japanese release dates, we’ve decided to release the OVA separately in order to be able to release the season on home video this year. Since we’ve seen such a huge outpouring of passion and excitement for this title, we definitely don’t want to make you guys wait til 2016 for the entire release.


Details on the OVA are coming soon. Customers who pre-order the Premium Edition from by September 29 will also receive an offer to get an additional discount on eventual pre-orders of the OVA, so don’t delay!

The pulse-pounding action continues in this thrilling second season of the eye-popping sci-fi series that Sankaku Complex calls ”seriously hot.”

Satellizer el Bridget and some of the most powerful – and desirable – Pandoras in the world are summoned to a secret base in the wilds of Alaska. These gorgeous warriors arrive primed for battle, but they soon discover the true purpose for their presence: to assist the clandestine Chevalier organization in forging a new breed of soldier – E-Pandoras! Once normal girls, these eager beauties volunteered to have their bodies genetically-enhanced in order to join the fight against the deadly alien invaders plaguing the planet. But there’s more to becoming a superhuman battle vixen than tattered uniforms and sultry slugfests. Rumors of heinous experimentation haunt the E-Pandora project, and only Satellizer and her loyal companion Kazuya can unravel the mystery before it’s too late!

009 Re:Cyborg – English Cast Announcement & Pre-order!

_入稿0718_OLThe wait is over, sci-fi anime fans— the new sci-fi action thriller anime 009 Re:Cyborg is now available for preorder— and getting an English dub! Plus, we’re announcing the release specs AND the cast announcement!


What’s 009 Re:Cyborg? Well, if you loved the classic cerebral sci-fi action anime like Ghost in the Shell or Akira from “the good old days”— movies that astounded you visually, throttled your adrenaline, but also made you think— 009 Re:Cyborg is definitely an extension of that tradition. The film comes to you with the cutting-edge action-packed production values of legendary studio Production I.G. (Psycho-Pass, Ghost in the Shell: Arise), plus smart, slick direction that could only come from the mind of the director of Ghost in the Shell: SAC and Eden of the East, Kenji Kamiyama.


The first-run release of 009 Re:Cyborg is our Limited Edition and comes with an exclusive 44-page Interview and Data booklet, packed to the brim with behind-the-scenes key points about the direction and world of the film, as well as artwork, character profiles, and a very thorough interview with the director. As anime fans, we’ve loved seeing Director Kamiyama’s take on how technology affects human interactions in our modern and increasingly globalized world, themes hugely apparent in his past works, so if you like cool sci-fi that also has meaning, 009 Re:Cyborg is a real showcase of all of that. When we say that this booklet is packed, we mean PACKED— it’s very dense and a great value add to any fans who wants to get a little more out of anime. Look out for previews of the booklet soon!


With that all out of the way, here’s your cast!


009: Joe Shimamura…………………  JASON GRIFFITH
003: Françoise Arnoul ERIN FITZGERALD
004: Albert Heinrich DAVE B. MITCHELL
007: Great Britain JOHN WHITE
006: Chang Changku MICHAEL SORICH
005: Geronimo Jr. PATRICK SEITZ
001: Ivan Whisky STEPHANIE SHEH
Dr. Isaac Gilmore GEORGE C. COLE



Produced by N.Y.A.V. Post



009 Re:Cyborg is now available for preorder and releases on Blu-ray Combo Pack July 28. Stay tuned for more details, including sneak peeks at the packaging and booklet, plus the trailer!
