As many of you recall earlier in the year we announced we were working with our partners at Bandai Visual in Japan to give UK fans the opportunity to own (the now sold out) Gundam The Origin I: Blue-Eyed Casval Blu-ray Collector's Edition. We are happy to announce that we will be giving UK fans the same opportunity with the sequel OVA Gundam The Origin II: Artesia's Sorrow Blu-ray Collector's Edition [Export Version].
As was the case before our pre-order scheme in conjunction with Bandai Visual allows UK fans to pre-order this upcoming release knowing that it will be sent from our offices here in the UK (once stock arrives.) Though please note this is a Japanese product. The main feature itself will include the English language dub and English subtitles to accompany the original Japanese audio but any additional features on the disc itself and/or the physical items included in the package itself will be in Japanese only.
We (Anime Limited) are now taking pre-orders for this Gundam The Origin II: Artesia's Sorrow for the UK and European customers through our AllTheAnime.com web shop. The deadline to pre-order this by is 12pm on Monday 15th September. Continue Reading

What results when a Naruto addict and a vocaloid producer combine forces? Anime song goodness, obviously! That’s exactly what happened when Japanese twosome GARNiDELiA exploded onto the scene in 2014, unleashing their first single “Ambiguous”, a track that will no doubt be familiar with anyone watching Kill la Kill – it’s the series’ second opening and you can watch its music video right here.
Originally the twosome pursued musical adventures independently of each other. Composer and producer toku (with a little ‘t’, because why make things easy for foreign journalists) started late in life, with a baptism by mecha space opera Macross Frontier as he entered his 30s. The anime series was the first to really capture his imagination, particularly due to its intergalactic pop diva character Sheryl Nome and aspiring singer Ranka Lee. Ever since watching the series, toku began watching late night anime whenever possible, and started composing his own anime-inspired tunes using vocaloid software and Miku Hatsune. Soon he was arranging (anime!) tracks for Sony’s latest otaku idols LiSA and Haruna Luna. Continue Reading
It's that time of year again, when Paris heats up, the tourists arrive and occupy the cafes along the Seine and the Parc des Expositions de Villepinte swells with anime and J culture fans from all over France and beyond. Yup, Team Anime Limited hitched their wagon and went to Paris for Japan Expo and what a weekend it was!
Japan Expo is a unique and wild weekend - as one of the biggest anime, gaming and J Culture events in Europe, it is incredibly popular and filled to the gunwales with booths, events, cosplay and food. This year was no different - a feast for the eyes (seriously, the booths are incredible) and an astonishing array of cosplay, we went once more into the breach. So, what did I see on our Japan Expo adventures this year? A whole lot of stuff!
Booths and Events
The biggest impact on your eyes when you first enter the exhibition hall is definitely the booths. They are huge, intricate and featuring some of the best artwork associated with whatever show, game or manga the company is promoting. The biggest impact comes from the gaming section of the expo - where an immersive, comfortable experience is the go to for companies like Nintendo and Bandai Namco Entertainment and boy did they deliver this year. Nintendo occupied a huge expanse of the expo centre with various sections promoting different games and adapting the design and experience for the game. The big promotion was for Super Mario Maker - an enormous booth with a giant screen allowing participants to play the game to an audience.

One man eats Japan. That’s the basic premise of Michael Booth’s book (and, now, anime series) Sushi & Beyond. In fact, it’s called British Family Eats Japan in translation; as far as travel/cookery literature goes, there are few better places to visit if you’re a veteran foodie with a knack for writing. Booth’s three-month, sprawling adventure through the country’s major food hubs is a revelatory experience for both himself and readers, and the resulting series of vignettes is well worth the ride.
