Madman’s May 2021 Anime Offerings Open For Pre-Order

We may live in an era where anime fans can tune into streaming services such as AnimeLab and legally enjoy anime seasons previously only available through home video release on-demand. This may meet the needs of many, especially those on a budget, but there is still some charm in having ownership of your favourite anime on DVD or Blu-ray. Australian anime publisher Madman Entertainment are continuing to offer a range of their licenses through physical formats, and have in recent days opened up pre-orders for their May 2021 release slate.

May 2021 is headlined by home video releases of shows including 2020’s Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun, the second season of Kunosuba and Part 1 of A Certain Scientific Railgun T. While there were initially plans to offer an Ultimate Collection of K-ON!, this plan does not appear to have eventuated. They are all now available to pre-order via Madman Entertainment’s official website or your favourite retailer of anime works in Australia.

A full list of shows planned to be available from 5 May 2021 are listed below:

Founder of The Otaku's Study. I have been exploring this labyrinth of fandom these last fourteen years, and still nowhere close to the exit yet. Probably searching for a long time to come.
