Manga_logo_neon_20th

First of all i take no credit for this, as it was provided to me by Agent347 on Twitter, but it seems The Hut Group, which inclues Zavvi and The Hut, are either on the ball or jumping the gun with their upcoming anime pre-orders, as they have recently listed all of  Manga Entertainment and Kaze’s forthcoming Blu-ray and DVD releases, interestingly with release dates and prices.

While the unveiling of the second quarter (April to June) may not be that exciting there is a few surprises in-store, such as confirmation of Complete Series boxsets in the form of Steins Gate, Kenichi and K-On! but more interestingly is the confirmation of Blue Exorcist Movie, K and Mardock Scramble.
