GRIMES, Iowa, September 30, 2010 – Anime producer and online retailer Right Stuf, Inc. and its Nozomi Entertainment division have rescheduled the release of the GRAVITATION Complete DVD Collection to January 4, 2011.
This new release collects both anime adaptations of Gravitation – the 13-episode television series and the 2-episode OVA series – together for the very first time. The set will feature remastered Dolby Digital 5.1 English audio, plus Dolby Digital 2.0 English and Japanese audio options, and English subtitles and on-screen translations, and it will be housed in a thin-profile, collectors’ art box.
Gravitation has been hailed as one of the “best romantic anime titles of all time” (Anime Insider) and is based upon the boys’ love manga by Maki Murakami. The manga series, its sequel and the Gravitation novel are published in North America by TOKYOPOP.

Love – the one force that simply won’t be denied! Walking through the park, aspiring rock star Shuichi’s latest lyrics flutter away and land at the feet of a stunning stranger that takes his breath away. The stranger happens to be the famous novelist Eiri Yuki, who completely crushes the young singer by telling him he has “zero talent.” Now, Shuichi’s so annoyed that he’s managed to finish his song just so he can find and confront Yuki! But, are his actions really motivated by anger, or has he fallen in love? Includes both the entire 13-episode TV series and the complete 2-episode OVA series!
