With a new English dub featuring Monica Rial as Misaki and David Matranga as Usui!

About Sunday Without God

Fifteen years ago on a Sunday, God abandoned the world and closed the gate to Heaven, leaving the souls of humankind trapped in limbo. With the dead unable to rest and the living unable to have children, the world is slowly coming to a halt. The only key to mankind’s salvation rests with the Gravekeepers, mysterious beings charged with the task of sending the deceased to their final resting place.

Twelve-year-old Ai, one of the last children in the world, soon finds herself shouldered with the burden of becoming her village’s newest Gravekeeper. But beneath the village’s unassuming exterior lies a dark secret that is revealed with the arrival of a gun-wielding stranger in black. With her position as a Gravekeeper now uncertain, Ai has no choice but to set out to put the living dead to rest. But in a world where no one can die, is death truly the ultimate blessing?

Out of curiosity, why would you choose to not release both versions at the same time?

I’m assuming you mean a Blu-ray and DVD version of a show. In this case, sometimes there are what we call in the industry “hold back periods” when for some reason or another the licensor of a show wants us to hold back the release of a blu-ray version for a certain time (which can vary case by case). 

If there is a hold back period, then we will wait until it expires to put out the Blu-ray. The DVD, however, is free from this restriction, and we would not want to keep those fans who buy the DVD versions waiting, so we go ahead and release the DVD version ahead of the Blu-ray release.

Hope this answered your question!

When will we hear about your January releases?

Soon, I think. :)
