Crunchyroll Announces Plans to Dub and Release Anime on DVD and Blu-ray

Crunchyroll has just announced at Anime Expo that they will be dubbing several anime titles and releasing them on DVD and Blu-ray. Additionally, they also obtained the merchandising rights for Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress.

The titles that Crunchyroll will be dubbing and releasing on home video are: BerserkBig OrderTwin Star ExorcistsFree!

Discotek Media previously partnered with Crunchyroll to release the first season of Free! on DVD with English subtitles in May 2015. It is unclear if this means that the partnership between Discotek and Crunchyroll has terminated or if these releases will be distributed by Discotek Media. Crunchyroll also did not clarify if their dub of the first season of Free! will be produced in partnership with FUNimation Entertainment, who dubbed and released the second season of the series in North America. Sentai Filmworks also previously released the first 52 episodes of Gintama with English subtitles on DVD in North America, however they discontinued their releases in February 2011.

Crunchyroll will release more titles on DVD and Blu-ray in the future.
