With MVM Entertainment releasing Toradora onto Blu-ray (and DVD) this week we’ve decided it would be a good idea to see what the retail set has to offer and that’s exactly what we are going to do in our latest unboxing article.

The Blu-ray release of Toradora – The Complete Series features 25, plus one bonus OVA episode, across three blu-ray discs – each of which are presented in High Definition and are available in both English and Japanese audio languages. In hindsight it’s the same content as that of it’s DVD counterpart, even the artwork, packaging and design is exactly the same – the only real difference is the HD Content included on the disc.

Love is a strange thing, it can happen at anytime and anywhere – Toradora is a perfect example of this, two characters who become friends by chance end up helping each other in order to find their soul-mate. It sounds cheesy but it actually provides one of the most entertaining love-stories i have ever seen. Potential plot spoilers aside what did we think to MVM Entertainment’s DVD release of Toradora? Well continue reading to find out!

Synopsis:

Ryuji Takasu is cursed with his father’s threatening face and is labeled a “delinquent” because of it. Even though this makes it difficult for him to meet people, he is madly in love with Minorin, the one girl who does not flee from him in terror. Taiga Aisaka is a notorious hothead with the nickname “Palm-top Tiger.” She also happens to be Minorin’s best friend, and what’s more, Taiga has a crush on Ryuji’s closest friend. This unlikely duo strikes a tenuous agreement to assist one another in stealing the hearts of the ones they love. They will face many hurdles along the way, but perhaps true love is closer to them than they think. Read more of this post

MVM Licenses ToraDora for UK Blu-ray Release

toradora_Taiga2

Continuing the trend of “long-overdue” Blu-ray announcements, MVM Entertainment have today unveiled that they have acquired the UK distribution rights to ToraDora and that it will be released onto Blu-ray, and presumably, DVD later this year.

We’re pleased to announce that the ink has now dried and we can reveal that firm fan-favourite (and ours too) ToraDora will be hitting the UK this year on Blu Ray.

Exact details, such as price, release date and contents, will be reveled in the coming months – but it will be released later this year on Blu-ray (and DVD) if everything goes to plan. In the meantime MVM has also provided a brief synopsis of what to expect from ToraDora.

Join Ryuji Takasu, a guy with a good heart but glowering eyes as he encounters the force of nature that is Taiga Aisaka – small, cute and dangerous to know. As Taiga is best friends with Ryuji’s childhood friend and secret crush Minori, he’ll have to tame the Taiga before his love life can get back on track.

ToraDora is a series produced by J.C. Staff, the same studio behind Okami-San and her Seven Companions and Shakugan No Shana, so fans of these series will undoubtedly enjoy this one. Furthermore the series spans 25 episodes, so it will be interesting to see if MVM attempts to release a complete box-set as opposed to a half season set. 
Either way ToraDora is finally confirmed for UK release and it’s expected to be released on Blu-ray (and presumably DVD) later this year, with more details to be confirmed in the coming months.
