Nozomi Entertainment revealed  the highly anticipated MARTIAN SUCCESSOR NADESICO Complete Collection L.E. and a repackage of MARIA WATCHES OVER US, Season 1 will both be available on Sept. 4, 2012.

The MARTIAN SUCCESSOR NADESICO Complete Collection L.E. DVD set will feature the entire 26-episode television series and its sequel motion picture (Prince of Darkness), as well as its Gekigangar 3 OVA spin-off. This will be the first time Gekigangar 3 will be available to North American audiences.

It will also include remastered video from the Japanese DVD release for the Nadesico TV series and Gekigangar 3 OVA and the previously released English-language dub (TV series and film), plus Japanese audio, English-language subtitles and on-screen translations, and on-disc extras. The limited-edition set’s seven discs will be housed in a Thinpak-style, full-color chipboard art box.

The new  MARIA WATCHES OVER US, Season 1 DVD set repackages the entire 13-episode first television season, plus the Season 1 specials, in a single DVD keepcase. It features Japanese audio, along with English on-screen translations, and two English-language subtitle tracks: one with regular dialogue subtitles and a second, special subtitle track that retains the Japanese honorifics.

Both titles are now available for pre-order.
