Company's Naka-Con announcements set the stage for DVD and BD sales this year
At Naka-Con this weekend, anime distributors Right Stuff and Nozomi Entertainment announced two big home video releases for the coming year. Fans of Gundam and anyone who missed out on the Skip Beat! Kickstarter will want to take note in particular.
First up, the companies have confirmed that their Mobile Suit Gundam 00 10th Anniversary Ultra Edition Collection will be available for purchase in the coming months. The box will include all 50 episodes of the series, as well as the Special Edition OVAs and the film A Wakening of the Trailblazer. The series will be released on DVD and BD, with both English and Japanese audio tracks and English subtitles.
Additionally, Right Stuf announced that they will be handling the North American retail release of Skip Beat! Originally localized by Pied Piper, Inc. via a successful Kickstarter campaign, the series was previously only available to the campaign's backers. The series, complete with both Japanese and English voice tracks and English subtitles, will be available on BD to the public on June 26. Preorders are now open exclusively on the Right Stuf website.
