Australian anime publisher Hanabee Entertainment have no plans to publish any new titles this month. Instead, they are offering fans the opportunity to purchase three of their 2014 anime releases as part of complete series box sets, in addition to publishing Devil Survivor 2 on Blu-ray. Although this haul may not be that interesting to early-purchasers, it does lead into a June 2015 release slate which features Super Sonico and Familiar of Zero – Season 3 as new releases.
More information on all four releases from Hanabee this month can be found below. All four titles can now be purchased via the Hanabee Entertainment website or via select retail outlets.
