Sentai Filmworks announced that they are releasing a slate of home video releases for July 2023. From isekai to romance dramas to zombie comedies, fans of all genres can find something in these DVD box sets. Some will be released with their English dubs while others will feature subtitles with the original Japanese subtitles.
They revealed the Dub list on their website:
THE EXECUTIONER AND HER WAY OF LIFE
When interdimensional travelers from an otherworldly land known as “Japan” appear, death and destruction always follow. It’s up to Executioners like Menou to exterminate the Lost Ones before they wreak havoc. When Menou encounters a Lost One named Akari, it’s bloody business as usual… until Menou discovers Akari can cheat death. Even so, Menou has a job to do, and she is committed to her executioner’s mission come hell or high water – provided her newly stirring feelings don’t get in the way.
PENGUINDRUM ~ RE: CYCLE OF THE PENGUINDRUM
What would you do to save someone you love? All brothers Shoma and Kanba know is that, after collapsing in an aquarium and apparently dying, their terminally ill sister Himari was somehow revived by a Penguin hat that she had wished for. Now they’re on an impossible mission, because the price of keeping Himari alive is to find a mysterious object called the Penguindrum, and they’ll do anything to save their sister. Anything. As they travel separate paths in their search, they’ll have to unravel complex riddles, make alliances with strangers they know they shouldn’t trust, and question the very fabrics of time and destiny. In two spectacular feature films combining elements from the acclaimed TV series plus dazzling new scenes and characters, the Penguinture begins again in RE: CYCLE OF THE PENGUINDRUM, PTS. 1 & 2!
Medaka Kurokami seems impossibly perfect. Not only is she one of the best in her class in most academics and sports, she’s also beautiful, sweet, and caring, so no one is particularly surprised when one of her first acts as the newly elected Student Council President is to create a suggestion box for odd problems that need to be addressed. However, what no one expects is for the box’s submissions to start revealing evidence of a sinister conspiracy… one that directly targets the students of Hakoniwa Academy! As what seemed like a simple way to help others continues to expose new and shocking revelations, Medaka, her self-appointed protector Zenkichi, and their recruits find themselves left with no other option: it’s time to start laying down some serious smackdown in the ultimate Student Council-endorsed battle royale in MEDAKA BOX!
HIGH SCHOOL OF THE DEAD
Being a student at a Japanese High School has always been stressful, but when the dead start to rise and eat the living, Takashi Komuro’s priorities at Fujimi High shift radically. Now the only thing that’s important is not failing a crash course in Zombie Apocalypse survival, keeping himself, his childhood crush Rei, and the other students moving, breathing and fighting long enough to escape from the slaughterhouse their school has become. And that’s just the beginning of the unliving nightmare, as even as former classmates and faculty rise again as cannibalistic ghouls, not all the survivors are willing to work together or share weapons and shelter… which means that Komuro’s group is now fighting a battle on multiple fronts and can never completely trust anyone, not even each other, in HIGH SCHOOL OF THE DEAD!
KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF EIZOUKEN!
Midori Asakusa is obsessed with animation, but while she spends hours doodling and coming up with amazing ideas, she knows that it’ll be difficult to produce animated films on her own. Fortunately, Sayaka Kanamori is more into planning and finances, and she’s been thinking of ways to turn Midori’s ideas into something practical and profitable. That’s what friends are for, right? Still, for all their hopes and wishes, their future as the next animation wunderkinds is looking rather sketchy… until they meet Tsubame Mizusaki, who daydreams about becoming an animator, even though her parents have forbidden her from joining their school’s anime club. Solution: form a new club focused on “motion pictures” and let the creativity flow! It won’t always be easy, but once everyone’s in “toon” together, who knows what might happen in KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF EIZOUKEN!
Sentai also released a list of titles that exclusively feature the original Japanese audio with English subtitles:
TOKYO MEW MEW NEW

Geez, when is she going to have time to do her homework? Find out when the good girls go magically wild in TOKYO MEW MEW NEW!
WHEN WILL AYUMU MAKE HIS MOVE?
Ayumu was a Kendo competitor in middle school, so everyone assumed that he’d join the Kendo club for his first year in high school. Instead, he becomes involved with an entirely different sort of activity with a Second-Year girl… an activity famous for becoming increasingly complex the longer it goes on! We’re talking about Shogi, of course, the board game that’s often referred to as Japanese chess. But the game itself soon becomes a problem, because while Ayumu finds himself increasingly attracted to Urushi, he’s also sworn not to tell her until he’s won a match against her… and Urushi’s REALLY good at Shogi! So now they’re stuck in a loop, caught up in ancient game that’s far more complicated than chess… and also playing a lot of Shogi as well… wondering WHEN WILL AYUMU MAKE HIS MOVE?
All of these titles will be released between July 4, 2023, to July 25, 2023.
