Media Blaster is delaying its release of the Ikkitousen: Great Guardians television anime series and offering it again in one complete set instead of two half-series sets. Media Blasters originally intended to release the series in two collections, one on August 30 and the other on October 25. However, evaluations of the current market led to a single collection release, now scheduled for March 31, 2012 for US$59.99.
Ikkitousen: Great Guardians is the third television series in the Ikkitousen franchise. The first season was licensed and released by Geneon Entertainment before being relicensed by FUNimation Entertainment. The second and third seasons were licensed by Media Blasters. The fourth season Ikkitousen: Xtreme Xecutor has not been licensed for North American release.
Japanese company Media Factor announced Saturday that a new video anime project, Ikkitousen: Shūgaku Tōshi Keppu-roku, is in the works.
