Australian distributor Madman Entertainment revealed back in July that their plans for the Ajin: Demi-Human first season property weren’t going to go ahead quite as planned. It was scheduled for a September 6th, 2017 release in the area but was then delayed indefinitely with no word about it until now. The bilingual release was getting a DVD-only release and we had hope that the delay would mean a Blu-ray release was being put together as well but that hasn’t happened as the distributor has now revealed a February 21st, 2018 release for it as the DVD-only edition.
