Bad news folks! We really have a bad run of luck when it comes to delays and true to form as ever the final one has come from left field. Our printers have informed us (and everyone they work with) that they’re receiving abnormally high orders – in our case they’ve advised the initial usual turnaround period has an extra period added on.
It’s Anime Ltd – we kinda figured this was a risk – what’s the new date?
We delivered on time for the usual quoted turnaround but due to this – we’ll receive stock in time for a release date of October 20th. We’re pretty much sobbing in the shower at this point over it but we’re pretty much at their mercy on this one – there are times you push and get results quicker, others where all you get are scowls and hurt feelings. Sadly this is clearly the latter having spoken to our replicators on it.
So to be absolutely clear:
– We delivered (after long approvals) on time for a release date of September 29th
– Printers then remained silent for a week with our replicators, Sony DADC.
– Sony DADC were then informed of unusually high workload just now.
– Today they confirmed a new delivery date that would be in time for October 20th.
How does that make you feel?
If you’re still keen to pre-order (as opposed to throw things our way) you can at:
Hopefully better news soon – next up a preview of the Cowboy Bebop BD set and some good news there!

TL;DR Our printers done a bad – Gurren Lagann will be out just before MCM Expo on October 20th now.
