Manga Entertainment have confirmed via Twitter that there will be a complete DVD collection box set of Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood this August. It will be a ten disc set comprising all five volumes that have been released on DVD.
Pre-orders for will begin in May and it’s probably a safe bet we’ll hear more about this during the MCM London Expo.
They also took the opportunity to address a question about the possibility of their upcoming releases Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt and Madoka Magica being available on Blu-Ray.
Manga said “No Panty & Stocking [Blu-Ray] planned for 2012. Just DVD in July. There’s a holdback on [Blu-Ray] for this license. Madoka Magica is another story. Madman and Aniplex have produced 3 DVD and 3 [Blu-Ray] discs for season 1. We see no point releasing individual volumes, so [are] planning a mid-October Complete season collection. Would u guys buy a 6-disc DVD/BD combo box set?”
If you would like to see Madoka Magica available on Blu-Ray in the UK be sure to let Manga UK know via Twitter. Send a tweet to @MangaUK with the hash tag #MadokaMagica saying you’d like it on Blu-Ray if at all possible. Your responses on this subject could well have an influence on this happening.
