~ For those of you looking forward to our release of Sword Art Online II Part 3 on 11th April, today we received an early finished copy of the both the Limited Collector’s Edition Blu-ray/DVD and standard DVD at our office. We published an unboxing of both and you can check that out HERE.

~ For those you heading to Kitacon in Birmingham this weekend we will be too! Jeremy and Keith will be there all weekend managing the Anime Limited stand and also be having a panel discussing a variety of topics on the Saturday evening from 6:30-7:30pm in the Surrey video panel room. We look forward to seeing you there.

~ An update on Lord Marksman and Vanadis. Unfortunately this has been pushed back until 9th May. The reason is an unusually long delay in the BBFC certification process. As it’s a requirement by UK law to have releases certified by the BBFC this is something we can’t bypass, hence the delay.

~ For those of you in the Glasgow area next month, Scotland Loves Anime have announced a special event at the Glasgow Film Theatre. On Thursday 28th April at 6pm The Case of Hana & Alice will be screened. But there’s more as Jonathan Clements will be hosting a special Q&A session with the director of the film Shunji Iwai. You can book your tickets right now for this special event at the GFT website HERE.

– Remember we mentioned that a standard edition Blu-ray of Baccano will be coming soon? Today we can confirm it’s set for release on 2nd May and will come with the entire series over 3 Blu-ray discs. Today we can show you what the artwork for this release will look like. (See below.) You will begin to see listings for this appearing with online retailers soon.
