Complete first series released in the UK

No real news today, just a reminder that Manga UK’s complete series DVD set is out today. K-On! fans in the UK who didn’t pick up the individual volumes can now get them all at once at an affordable price.
I won’t be picking up or reviewing this set myself (believe it or not, I don’t really feel like I need a fourth copy of season 1 in my collection) but expect it to be pretty much the same as the Region 1 Anime Legends version.

Movie Blu-Ray/DVD release set for July

As indicated on a solicitation listing, the K-On! movie will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD in Japan on July 18th. It will have been seven and a half agonizing months since the film’s theatrical premiere, a long time for a movie to move from cinemas to home video by anyone’s standard. Even so, it’s a significantly shorter waiting period than what fans of Kyoto Animation’s previous feature film, The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, had to endure.

More information should be available this coming week.

All five HTT members cast in “Hyouka”

Okay, this isn’t K-On! news, exactly, but it’s definitely kind of related. Kyoto Animation announced today that Ayana Taketatsu (K-On!’s Azusa) and Minako Kotobuki (Tsumugi) have been added to the cast of their currently ongoing (the first episode aired as recently as five days ago) TV anime series “Hyouka”.

As Anime News Network points out, K-On!’s other three main cast members – Aki Toyosaki, Yoko Hikasa and, in the most significant role among them, Satomi Sato – were already part of Hyouka’s cast, meaning all members of the voice talent behind Ho-Kago Tea Time are now represented in the series.

Pretty cool, huh?
