    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    SENTAI FILMWORKS NETS
    “Ajin: Demi-Human”

    HOUSTON, JANUARY 17, 2017Sentai Filmworks announced today that it acquired home video and transactional video on demand rights to the heart-pounding horror thriller, Ajin: Demi-Human, created by Polygon Pictures, under an exclusive license with the Ajin Production Committee.

    Kei Nagai is just another carefree high school student until a fatal accident brings his young life to a violent end. But Kei’s death is only the beginning. A resurrection brings not salvation but horror and the realization that he is something other than human. Kei and others like him, known as “Ajin”, are blessed with regenerative powers but they are hunted for cruel and sinister purposes. Kei must elude dark forces and confront the limits of his own humanity in a world that is truly inhumane.

    Ajin: Demi-Human will soon be available on Blu-Ray and DVD with special content and extras only available on home video.

    I sure hope Sentai does Collector's Editions for Ajin just like they did for Knights of Sidonia...

      I was kind of expecting this, but here's the confirmation. I do think this will get a Premium Edition. It has a dub, it's a great action packed thriller and it should sell really well.

      I suppose this will help Sentai stay relevant, since they won't be getting a lot of stuff because of the CR/Funi partnership.

        Aw yea, just what I hoped for! Have high expectations based on how they (excellently) handled Knights of Sidonia.

                Good but expected news since they previously got Knights of Sidonia, wont affect me much since I'm in Australia but I do hope Sentai will provide proper English credits for the show since there's a ton of actors who were left uncredited for the dub (the long lasting mystery of Satou's English voice must be answered someday...)

                  That hasn't been proven yet. Most likely it's Kodansha since the first 3 shows Netflix licensed all have the Kodansha logo plus Germany's BD release states Kodansha on the box. In any case still glad to see Ajin licensed. I've heard really good things about it.

                    Aniplex of America has also specifically said it's NOT a title of theirs; since a Netflix deal presumably would have gone through AoA if Aniplex Japan held the international rights, it's a pretty safe bet that Kodansha holds the US rights (which means it might actually have a chance at a release).

                      Worth noting, Kodansha works almost exclusively with FUNi, so if they pass on something, typically it's screwed.

                      BTW, the Netflix logo is also on the German release of The Seven Deadly Sins.

                      Anyway, glad to finally see another Netflix show actually get licensed for home video.

                          This looks amazing. Really love how Sentai is including the compilation movies in these sets (Sidonia being the other one). Can't wait to get the LE. They've been doing an amazing job with the Netflix titles so far.

                            Will your Ajin release include the 3 OVA's?

                            This release does not. The extras currently include: Clean Opening Animation, Clean Closing Animation, Clean Movie Closing Animation, Movie Teasers, Animatic Process Scenes, Booklet, Art Cards, Poster, Ajin Manga

                              I wouldn't be opposed if they did a separate release just for the OVA's if they (or I guess Netflix) ever got the license for them. Or even better, they could surprise us with including it in the S2 release!
