(Belleville, New Jersey) Media Blasters and their AnimeWorks label is pleased to announce the re-licensing of three anime acquisitions from King Records of Japan for a first-time North American blu-ray release! All three titles will be scheduled and announced for blu-ray and DVD release within 2020 and each program will include English dubbed audio tracks!
EIKEN- (2 episodes) Densuke just enrolled at the exclusive Zashono academy. Eager to participate in extracurricular activities, he never expected to join the mysterious Eiken Club. Oddly enough, all the other members seem to be busty hot co-eds and most of the clubs activities involve them wearing bikinis! Despite the visual distractions, Densuke isn’t interested in anyone but the shy and beautiful Chiharu. Long out of print on DVD, EIKEN is back and looking better than ever on blu-ray!
JUNGLE DE IKOU- (3 episodes) After meeting a dancing old man in what she thinks is just a surreal dream, a preteen schoolgirl embarks on a series of fanservice-filled magical girl adventures with a little creature named Ongo, who might possibly be evil (?), and a shy girl with mysterious powers named Nami.
JUBEI CHAN 2- (13 episodes) Three hundred years ago, in the frigid land of Siberia, Jubei Yagyu engaged in a fierce battle with Kitaretsusai of the Northern Yagyu clan. The conflict was costly as his daughter Freesia was frozen in suspended animation. As a result of present day global warming, Freesia breaks free from her icy prison and moves to Japan as a middle school transfer student, where she befriends Jiyuu Nanohana. Little does Jiyuu know that Freesia is targeting her to acquire the coveted Lovely Eye Patch, which Freesia believes is rightfully hers. Originally released on DVD by Geneon, AnimeWorks presents JUBEI CHAN 2 on blu-ray for the first time!
