F.A.Q.(Frequently Asked Questions) Section

~ How come you’re releasing it over two parts?
As part of the terms of licensing the series, we’re only permitted to release the series over two volumes. Whether that will change or not in the future is something we do not know. But with that in mind, given we know how many of you like to be able to display/store your anime as a “collection” where at all possible, we hope you’re happy with how we’ve approached our release.

~ You announced you acquired the series a long time ago. Why’s it taken to so long to release?
This may seem like a cop out answer, but sometimes it’s just the way things work out. Nobody intended for it to be this long. But we hope you’re excited to be able to own the series now!

~ How come there is no English dub for this show?
Simply put, no English dub was ever created for it. This is why it’s in Japanese with English subtitles only.

~ Will you be releasing the series on DVD?
No. It will only be released on Blu-ray.


And there you have it everyone! Plastic Memories is (finally) coming to Blu-ray in the UK! We hope you’re looking forward to adding this to your collection.

Signing out~!
