I wonder if there will be a release in English.  Maybe once it gets released on DVD/Bluray they might add English Dubs to the disc.  Then again, considering how long it takes most of the games in the series to be released in English, I wont hold my breath.

FUNimation or Viz Media would be most likely to license this, if not someone more kid friendly like Shout Factory.
