Having released the first two seasons of the very popular Tokyo Ghoul franchise on Blu-ray and DVD, a recurring question we have been asked not only online but at every event we’ve exhibited at has been “will you release the OVAs?”
For the benefit of those not aware, there were two additional OVA episodes made and released in Japan that cover different aspect of the Tokyo Ghoul universe linking into the two seasons. These OVA episodes being “Jack” and “Pinto” respectively.
Well today we’re delighted to announce that we will be bring both of these OVA episodes as an individual release to Blu-ray and DVD this year! It’s worth noting from the outset that there is no English language dub for either OVA, so both are in Japanese with English subtitles only.
In fact you won’t have wait very long for them as they will be available in May 2017 – more details including exact date to follow in the coming months so stay tuned.
