The 2015 anime series Prison School recently found itself with a pickup by Italian distributor Dynit and a few more details came out. We previously knew that the company will be bringing the show out in a DVD/BD combo release with four episodes per volume kicking off on May 25th, 2016. Now, the distributor has set the release date for the next two volumes of the series. The second is scheduled for a July 20th, 2016 release and the third and final for an august 31st, 2016 release. The show is also getting a pretty good treatment in terms of audio as it’ll have the original Japanese language track as well as an Italian dub alongside Italian subtitles.

In the first time in school history, they are allowing boys to be admitted. As Fujino Kiyoshi starts his first day at Hachimitsu Academy he is shocked to find out that there are only 4 other guys in the entire school, making the ratio of girls to boys 200:1. And to their dismay, not one of the thousand girls will talk to them or even acknowledge them. But Kiyoshi and the guys are about to find out about the shadow student council that has been threatening the female students about interacting with male students.
