Aniplex of America’s showing at Anime Expo 2012 was something of a let down. Their only announcements were a concert video featuring the computer generated idol Miku, Mikunopolis; and the fact that Blue Exorcist, which they had just finished releasing on subtitled-only DVD, would be dubbed for Viz’s new anime outlet Neon Alley.
At their Otakon panel held today in Baltimore, Aniplex of America did much better, announcing a Blu Ray release of Durarara. Pre-order it for $149.98, the shipping date is October 30th, 2012. This set will be different from the Japanese release, and will come in a special ‘Lunch box’ package.
