Durarara!! UK released delayed, next Pocket Monsters movie release date confirmed in Japan, Naruto Shippuuden Volume 3 out now!

Durarara!! UK DVD Release Delayed
To begin with some news relating to an upcoming DVD release. Beez revealed on their twitter account that the scheduled October release for ‘Durarara!!’ Volume 1 on DVD has now been pushed back to November of this year! The reason stated for the delay was an issue regarding one of the subtitle tracks. “…release has been delayed to November now due to German subtitle delays it seems…”

For those unaware, Beez Entertainment while being a distributor for Anime DVDs here in the UK, are also a distributor for Anime across Europe! Because of that, one key aspect of their DVD distribution, is catering to many European territories with each title. This includes both audio and subtitle tracks for the corresponding languages on their DVDs. In the case of ‘Durarara!!’, as announced at the MCM Expo this past May (see our transcript here for details) this was to be the first subtitle only release for Beez. Meaning there would be no English (or other language) audio track included on the DVD with the original Japanese audio and subtitles.

With the above in mind, Volume 1 is now slated for release on 29th November and Volume 2 will follow on 24th January 2011.
