MVM Entertainment Cancels Blu-ray Release of Another

Another

It has today been revealed that the UK Blu-ray Release of Another: The Complete Collection has been cancelled, and it will now only be available on DVD.

The news became apparent when Agent347 asked MVM’s Twitter account for Blu-ray Pre-order information, and that is when MVM replied with the unfortunate news.

The Australian company we were due to print the BD with have pulled out, so unfortunately we’ve had to cancel the BD release.

For those unaware most UK companies (such as Manga UK & MVM) partner with Australian companies (such as Madman & Sirven Visual) for most DVD & Blu-ray releases, this is so that all of the companies can share production costs and it also means that a lot more anime is released. However due to this ‘australian’ company pulling out of the Blu-ray MVM will now only release the DVD edition of the series.

Another: The Complete Collection is scheduled for UK Release on the 25th November 2013, a Blu-ray is available in america and it is Region Free (thanks Mangaranga for the confirmation).
