It’s been a busy few months here at AllTheAnime HQ but with us fast approaching Christmas we want to take a few moments to put some attention on a title which we’re very excited to have brought to the UK – in fact, we are the first English speaking territory to give it a home video release of any kind! That being the series Amanchu!
We’ve released the entire first season as a Ltd Collector’s Edition Blu-ray set and it’s available to add to your collection right now! Today we’re going to be showing you what to expect when you get your copy of this release. And if you’re not familiar with the show, don’t worry we’ll introduce you to it too!
Read on below for all the details.
“After moving from Tokyo to a small seaside town, 15-year-old Futaba is captivated by the ocean views and the vast expanse of water which she finds laid out before her. Unbeknownst to her, Futaba’s fascination is shared by Hikari, who has lived in the town her entire life, and the two girl’s lives intermingle unexpectedly when the introverted Futaba meets the outgoing and exuberant Hikari as one of her new classmates.
Before she knows it, a whole new world is opened up to Futaba – a sparkling, shimmering world that exists under the sea, as her new-found friend helps her confront her fears and anxieties through the form of scuba diving.
As her circle of friends grows, and with her confidence burgeoning, so Futaba finds the strength and self-assuredness to grow and develop with the support of those around her in this quietly touching and charming tale of friendship and finding yourself, lovingly animated by J.C. Staff”

WHAT’S INSIDE? WHAT’S ON THE DISCS?
Our release of the series comes packed in a rigid case and inside that you’ll find a digipack to store the two Blu-ray discs. In addition to that you’ll find a 52-page hardback artbook that is divided into three sections: Characters, Settings and Artworks. If that wasn’t enough, because we love the unique faces that regularly appear in the series, we’ve also got two sticker sheets included as well!
On the disc themselves you find the following –
- The entire first season (12 episodes) plus OVA episode 13 in Japanese with English subtitles, (There’s no English dub for the series, so this is a subtitle only release.)
- On-disc extras are Amanchu short films (7 episodes) along with Clean versions of the Opening and Ending title sequences.
