* Marked titles may be very likely to see release date changes.

** We’ve decided to change our links to products from Amazon to Anime-On-Line mainly because they are generally cheaper and we like to support that.

*** (Blu-ray / DVD) means released separately on both formats, although in some cases they may be released as a combo pack, in which case that will be marked with (Combi Pack). Instance, where CE or DE is used this, denotes Collector’s Edition and Deluxe Edition respectively.
