In Another World with my Smartphone Officially Announced by Sony Pictures UK for this October!

Distributor Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have officially announced their plans to release In Another World with my Smartphone for the UK & Ireland as part of their partnership with Funimation.

As we have previously mentioned when it was first discovered alongside another release, the series will be released as a standard complete series Blu-ray & DVD combo pack for SRP £39.99. Both the Funimation English dub and the original Japanese audio with English subtitles will be included on the disc for all 12 episodes. The series is scheduled for release on 29th October 2018.

The Blu-ray on-disc features include:

  • Episode 2 Video Commentary
  • Episode 8 Commentary
  • Eyecatch Gallery
  • Clean Opening & Closing Songs
  • Trailers

Much like Yuri!!! on ICE, currently the standard combo pack is the only SKU listed in the press release provided to us.

Plot Synopsis via Sony Pictures:

Touya Mochizuki is killed. To make it up to him, God grants Touya a second chance at life in a fantastic new world. Adventure, fame, fortune, and a harem of cute girls await him across this otherworldly realm. But despite being a magical and physical prodigy, balancing the affections of his companions with his day-to-day activities is one challenge he’s definitely not prepared for!

In terms of the official cover artwork, the UK version has been revealed. Design-wise it looks to be a fat Blu-ray case similar to Black Clover Season 1 Part 1. The artwork is also based on the limited edition version of the US release:

The complete series will be available to order across multiple retailers including the following below:

Amazon UK / HMV / Zavvi

Like Black Clover and Yuri!!! on ICE, In Another World with my Smartphone is part of the Crunchyroll x Funimation partnership. In Another World with my Smartphone is available to watch for streaming on Crunchyroll in Japanese audio and on Funimation in English audio. The original light novel source material is also available to read on J-Novel Club.
