Aniplex of America announced on March 2 at their industry panel at Kawaii Kon that both "Oreimo" and "Oreimo 2" will be coming to Blu-ray for the first time. Both seasons of the beloved, fan-favorite sibling romance comedy will be released on two Blu-ray Box sets this year.

Along with the 12 episodes, the "Oreimo" Complete Blu-ray Box Set will include 4 OVA episodes, including the episode #12.5 "True Route." The "Oreimo 2" Complete Blu-ray Box Set will include all 13 episodes of the second season, 3 OVA episodes, and the "Gal-ge" short movies. Both box sets will come with special illustration cards and a package designed by Original Illustrator Kanzaki Hiro.

The series is based on the light novel series that sold over 3.7 million copies. It made waves in the otaku community with its endearing portrayal of the otaku lifestyle told by an ensemble of hilarious yet relatable characters. The series inspired its own manga, drama CDs, multiple video games with alternate endings, and even a partnership with Chiba Urban Monorail that decked out a Japanese monorail in full fanfare to promote the second season.

 "Oreimo" received the highly-anticipated anime adaptation in October 2010 and after overwhelming demand, a second season was greenlit, and the second season, "Oreimo 2" began airing April 2013.

The animation studio A-1 Pictures animated the series with director Hiroyuki Kanbe. The studio teamed up with composer Satoru Kosaki to do the music for the series. The cast includes Yuichi Nakamura, Ayana Taketatsu, Kana Hanazawa, and Saori Hayami.

The release date for "Oreimo 1" is May 29, 2018, and "Oreimo 2" will be released on Aug. 21, 2018. Fans can already preorder!
