One of the more stellar success stories in terms of anime sales on home video in recent years has been that of Tokyo Ghoul, the popularity of which certainly can't be ignored even if its second season wasn't as warmly received as the first.

To that end, UK distributor Anime Limited will be returning to world of Tokyo Ghoul later this year, as they've today announced that they'll be releasing both of the show's OVAs on DVD and Blu-ray.

This release will contain both the Jack and Pinto OVAs as a single releaseon both formats, providing fans with two episodes that link the first and second seasons of the anime. Here's some more detail on each OVA from the distributor themselves:
