Aniplex of America made a couple of big announcements at their Anime Expo 2011 panel. They include the acquisition of both Puella Magi Madoka Magica and Blue Exorcist for home video release.
The US license for Puella Magi Madoka Magica was already strongly hinted at thanks to the existence of Aniplex's MadokaMagicaUSA.Com page, which recently went live. Further details on the home video release will be announced later.
In addition to that, Aniplex of America will be shipping the first of four Blue Exorcist DVDs in October, with the remainder tentatively set for January, April and July 2012.
