Those who follows us on social media, specifically Twitter, might remember that Anime-On-line, the retail site operated by MVM Entertainment, listed CLANNAD & CLANNAD After Story Collection for pre-order in November 2020 last year before it was shortly removed. At the time Manga Entertainment (quite naturally) denied its existence, but today’s announcement confirms the release and provides some additional hope for Blu-Ray releases of K-ON! and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzimiya; both of which were also listed last year but have yet to be formally announced by the distributor.

Regardless, Q2 2021 is shaping up to be an interesting year with a mix of shonen styled titles, such as Dragon Ball Z, Fairy Tail and HUNTER X HUNTER, along with other titles such as Azur Lane, BOFURI and Fruits Basket.

As per usual the dates listed above are tentative and could change without notice. An updated release schedule can also be found on the official MangaUK Website.
