Madman Entertainment looks to be taking a bit more of a cautious approach to shows with two or more cours to them, opting when they can to wait it out a bit and just do a complete collection. Such is the case with Nanbaka as the two-cour series now has a February 5th, 2020 debut for Australian fans. It’ll be a Blu-ray release with twenty-five episodes spread across four discs in bilingual form. It’ll include the OVA and other extras to be detailed later.
