June 9, 2015 · 1 comment
If you’re looking forward to our upcoming releases of Tiger & Bunny The Rising and Sword Art Online II, we’ve got you covered with a preview of what you can expect with each title in this weeks edition of our Newswire.
~ For those of you looking forward to our release of Tiger & Bunny: The Rising you can see the final visual of what our Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD combi release will look like below.
Set for release on 29th June, this will come with a rigid case, inside that a digipack containing two discs (1 x Blu-ray and 1 x DVD) that includes the main feature (both dubbed and subbed) plus a slew of extras. Also included are 4 UK exclusive art cards showcasing the heroes. You can pre-order your copy from Amazon UK HERE and through out web shop HERE.
All going well we’re hoping to getting a finished sample in the office within the next week and we’ll be sure to share images of it accordingly.
~ For those wondering, the latest update on Kill la Kill Part 3 is that all is our target for our 29th June release.
~ Today we’re happy to be able to share provisional images for our release on both Collector’s Edition Blu-ray/DVD combi and Standard Edition DVD for Sword Art Online II: Part 1.
Both of these are still subject to approval, but we wanted to give you an idea of what you can expect when the product arrives. The Collector’s Edition version comes packed in a rigid case, inside that a digipack containing the discs (1 x Blu-ray + 1 x DVD) along with a booklet featuring material translated from the Japanese release and imagery exclusive to our release outside of Japan. Also, on the right side of the Collector’s Edition image, you will see the Collector’s Box that will store four volumes we’ll be releasing.
~ Due to a delay in approvals Space Dandy Season 2 and the Season 1 & 2 DVD box set are being pushed back to 3rd August. (Slightly ironic given we shared the provisional images of the artwork last week, but that’s just how things go sometimes.)
~ Speaking of Space Dandy, are you planning to come to MCM Manchester Comic Con in July? All going well we have some cool Space Dandy related news for the event we’ll be able to share with you soon.
~ Looking forward to 009 Re:Cyborg? It’s been a (very) long time coming but we’re happy to confirm we’re aiming for a 27th July release date for both the Collector’s Edition Blu-ray/DVD combi and Standard Edition Blu-ray versions.
~ Seeing as it’s been a few weeks since our last Podcast, we’re planning to record our next episode later this week. All going well it should be available for your listening pleasure on Friday.
~ In case you missed them, here are some of our recent features that have been getting great responses:
- Raz Greenberg on Perfect Blue and Social Acting
- Jonathan Clements reviews the novel about a pirate DVD seller called Running Through Beijing
- Andrew Osmond on Satoshi Kon’s classic, Perfect Blue and Horror films
- Anthony Thomas on the music of Outlaw Star by Kazuhiro Hara
- Andy Hanley reviews the Seraph Of The End manga
- Anthony Thomas on the app that helps you to read Chinese
Can you believe we already ten episodes in to this season of simulcasts. You can watch the latest episodes of Seraph Of The End, Plastic Memories and The Heroic Legend Of Arslan at the links below?
