MVM Entertainment to Release AIR on DVD in the UK in 2022

MVM Entertainment has kickstarted its holiday celebrations a little early this year and have announced that they will be releasing the 2005 anime series AIR on DVD in the UK, with pre-orders now available from the anime-on-line website.

Currently scheduled for a UK DVD release on 4th April 2022, AIR is an anime adaptation, by the amazingly talented Kyoto Animation, of the visual novel game of the same, which was developed by KEY. Sadly the visual novel is not available in localised format, but the game was recently ported to the Nintendo Switch in Japan.

About: Yukito is a travelling performer. He moves through this world with only the clothes on his back driven onward by stories of The Girl in the Sky . Not knowing when or if he will find her, Yukito wanders, clinging to fleeting hope. Destitute and near starvation, Yukito s life changes after the eccentric beauty Misuzo offers him food and shelter. This fragile treasure shares with him her dreams of a life lived amongst the clouds, and he listens closely out of a gratitude which soon gives way to rapt curiosity. The unlikely pair grows close, but Yukito cannot forget his destiny or his past. In the end, the compelling need to find her remains. Who is the girl in the sky? Does she even exist? The questions run rampant, but the answers float aimlessly through the air.

MVM Entertainment have not provided any specifics on this DVD release, however AIR was licensed and released by FUNimation (in America) and Madman Entertainment (in Australia) in 2010, so it is safe to assume that MVM Entertainment will be using the same disc assets as those already available. If that’s the case then we can expect all 13 episodes in English and Japanese audio (with English subtitles), with a small selection of bonus features, across 3 DVD discs.

AIR (TV) is currently scheduled for a 4th April 2022 release and it will mark the first time that the series has been released in the UK.
