The summer 2015 anime series Charlotte has found a home in Germany as the folks at Peppermint Anime have picked up the rights to it. Their plans are fairly minimal at the moment with what to expect, but the basics are solid in that it will be getting a DVD and Blu-ray release that’s planned for September 30th, 2016. No word if it’s a complete set or the first of a couple of volumes.
