Discotek Media Announces New Licenses

Discotek Media announced during the company’s panel at Anime North that it has licensed the following anime:

  • Kemono Friends (first season)
  • Ayakashi – Samurai Horror Tales
  • Sorcerer Hunters (series and OVA)
  • Lupin III: The Last Job special
  • Honey and Clover (both seasons)

Discotek will release Kemono Friends: The Complete 1st Season on Blu-ray Disc, with Japanese language as well as a new dub that Sound Cadence Studios is producing. The release will include extras such as commercials, trailers, behind-the-scenes videos, episode commentaries, Friend bios, bloopers and outtakes, and no-credit openings and endings.

Discotek will reveal the full English dub cast at Otakon.

The company will release Ayakashi – Samurai Horror Tales on Blu-ray Disc in high definition with Japanese and English audio tracks. Extras and pricing will be announced at a later date.

Discotek will release Sorcerer Hunters: The Complete Series on SD Blu-ray Disc with Japanese and English audio tracks. The collection will include the 26-episode television series and the three-episode Sorcerer Hunters OAV.

The company will release the Lupin III: the Last Job special on Blu-ray Disc in Japanese with English subtitles.

Discotek will release Honey & Clover Parts I and II on home video, although the company stated it has yet to determine the format of the release. Discotek explained that it received new masters from the licensor, and will redo the subtitles in order to “avoid the burn-in and other issues that the older masters have.” The company is evaluating the masters to determine if the masters can be upconverted for Blu-ray Disc, or if they should be kept in standard definition.
