It's the weekend and we've got some exciting details to share with you! It's been a long time coming. We know a lot of you have been patiently waiting for details on our release of Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- Part 1 and today we can bring you some details on what to expect when it arrives in the UK in under a couple of months time on 25th June 2018.
But before we get to telling you what to expect in our release, for those unfamiliar with it, a quick introduction to the series -
From the studio brought you Akame Ga Kill, Steins;Gate, Jormungand and The Devil is a Part-Timer!
Synopsis: "Natsuki Subaru, an ordinary high school student, is on his way home from the convenience store when he finds himself transported to another world. As he's lost and confused in a new world where he doesn't even know left from right, the only person to reach out to him was a beautiful girl with silver hair.
Determined to repay her somehow for saving him from his own despair, Subaru agrees to help the girl find something she's looking for..."
Check out a subtitled preview (originally published when the show was airing) below -
Part 1 of Re:Zero will be getting released on standard DVD and Ltd Collector's Edition Blu-ray (pictured) on 26th June 2018. It will include episodes 1-12* of the series with both English and original Japanese with English subtitles language options.
*This includes the double length first episode (aka episodes 1A & 1B)
The Ltd Collector's Ed. Blu-ray version will come pack in a rigid case with a digipack to hold the two Bu-ray discs. Inside will also be 52 page book. Inside the book will be -
A unique aspect of this book is that it combines lots of data from the original Japanese releases, but is split into two distinct sections, this in essence being the first two story arcs of the series. The first covering events that take place in the first three episodes (four technically, if you consider that episode 1 aired as episode 1A & 1B), then the second section covering events between episodes 4-11. It's a great companion piece to watching the series and one we're sure you'll be happy to have in your collection.
You can pre-order your copy of this right from many retailers including the following -

If you look through the catalogue of titles we have brought to the UK you'll notice a varied mixture. Over the past few years we've been delving into the archives of franchises that have been out-of-print and made them available again for long time fans, but also made them available for the first time to newer fans. Giving them the chance to experience these classic titles and understand we fell in love with them many moons ago. One of these classic franchises is Full Metal Panic.
Full Metal Panic is a wonderful blend of action, adventure, drama, comedy and mecha SF action that's set in a time all rolled into one and being able to release the first three seasons (Full Metal Panic, Full Metal Panic: Fumoffu? and Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid) is something we're very happy about. But to say we have been craving more for a long time - I'm talking about since The Second Raid concluded it's broadcast in Japan - is an understatement.
But the time has nearly arrived for the wait to be over and we (Anime Ltd.) are delighted to announce we have acquired the rights to the upcoming fourth season of the franchise, Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory.
And what's more, fans in UK & Ireland will be able to watch new episodes of the series each week through a simulcast at Crunchyroll. (Please stay tuned to Crunchyroll's for more specific details, but we'll be sure to update this post accordingly..)
Synopsis: "Full Metal Panic returns with a brand-new, action-packed series, continuing from the events of The Second Raid.
Invisible Victory finds Sagara Sousuke and his colleagues at “Mithril" under fierce attack at their bases around the globe from a rival organisation known as “Amalgam”. While Sousuke and Kaname face new tests thanks to a dangerous threat on their home turf in Japan, Merida Island and Mithril’s flagship submarine, the Tuatha de Danaan, both come under fierce and concerted attack themselves.
The series is written by original Full Metal Panic author Shouji Gatou, with production handled by animation studio Xebec. The series is directed by Katsuichi Nakayama (Planetarian, assistant director Evangelion 2.0 and 3.0), while the series’ character designer Osamu Horiuchi returns to his role for the new series."
You can check out a few previews for the series below -
There will be a weekly simulcast for viewers in UK & Ireland via our good friends at Crunchyroll. At time of writing the specifics haven't been announced, so please stay tuned to Crunchyroll's channels for more details. (We'll of course be updating this post accordingly.)
And that's about everything we can tell you at the moment! If you've not watched series before, it's a perfect time for a catchup. We have released all three seasons on Blu-ray so you can be more than ready ahead of the new series!
And be on the lookout, as there might be some more Full Metal Panic related news coming soon.

Kae Serinuma is a fujoshi, a type of fangirl who is obsessed with Boys-Love products, and looks for it in real life wherever she goes.
