It's Tuesday and that means it's time for our latest newswire!
~ First of all we know you've been patiently waiting to see what it will look like and this past Friday on our social media channels we revealed how the Blu-ray version of Kill la Kill Box 2 will look. Check it out below.
You'll start to see this image appearing on retailer sites this week. As a note the only difference between the Blu-ray and DVD versions is the disc colouring. The DVD discs haave a red background and black text. You can pre-order your copy today from Amazon UK HERE.
~ We're hoping to be able to show you all what our other March releases will look like soon.
[UPDATE: English dubbed preview now added.]
You will recall we recently announced that UK fans can purchase the upcoming Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin I: Blue-Eyed Casval Blu-ray Collector's Edition [Export Version] through our website (see HERE for complete ordering details) and today we're excited to share with you a preview of Blue-Eyed Casval. You can watch the first seven minutes of this in Japanese with English subtitles below.
You can watch the official English language trailer for this below.
Valentine's Day is very important in some... most relationships and we respect that fact. For all you gentlemen planning to give your significant other a day they'll never forget please allow us to offer some handy tips to making that perfect day a reality.
Team Anime Limited
Netflix UK is a fantastic portal to watch not only television shows and movies, but also anime. If you've never used the service before one of the great things about Netflix is that new subscribers get the first month for free! So why not give it a try today.
We wanted to take a moment to highlight what titles of ours are available to watch on Netflix UK. Read on below for details.
You can watch both seasons of one of our favourite shows of 2014 with not only the great English language dub, but also the original Japanese audio with subtitles.
The complete series (27 episodes) is available to watch on Netflix UK. You can watch it in both English and in Japanese with subtitles
The complete series of this highly entertaining series is on Netflix UK. (Though please note only the 10 episodes of the main series itself are available on here. The bonus OVA episode is exclusive to our DVD and Blu-ray release.) Can be viewed with English or the original Japanese audio with subtitles.
Kill la Kill
The complete series (excluding the bonus OVA episode, which will be exclusive to our release of Box 3 in May 2015) is available to watch in Japanese with subtitles.
Thus far we have released Box 1 (episodes 1-9) on DVD and Blu-ray with Box 2 (episodes 10-19) coming in March. CLICK HERE for details on both of those.
Ahead of our release of the series later this year (more details on that soon,) you can watch the complete series of Samurai Flamenco in Japanese with subtitles right now.
We're going to be releasing it in the UK in the future, but in the mean time you can watch the inaugural season of Tokyo Ghoul on Netflix in Japanese with subtitles.
From the acclaimed director of Cowboy Bebop and Space Dandy comes Terror In Resonance. It's another show we'll be releasing in the future but you can watch the series right now in Japanese with subtitles.
We'll be sure to keep you updated on more of our titles being available on Netflix as and when it happens.
Welcome to the latest edition of the Anime Limited Newswire. Below you will find the latest up to date news from us!
~ Did you hear that we're giving UK fans the opportunity to purchase the Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin I: Blue-Eyed Casval Collector's Edition [Export Version] from Japan through our website? If not please see HERE.
~ Also A Letter To Momo is getting theatrical screenings across the UK as part of the Japan Foundation Film Touring Programme. You can get the details on that HERE.
These new discs will be using the exact same video and audio assets. (We were very happy with video and audio quality originally so we want to retain the same high standard there.)
We'll be getting new subtitles applied to every episode across all the discs. (They won't be the same ones as were used previously.) These subtitles will have typesetting tweaks as well. Plus we'll also be getting a separate sign & song subtitle track created too! As if that wasn't enough, the menu used previously will be getting an overhaul and the chaptering on every episode will be redone as well.
Please note that we still don't have an eta on how long this will take to be completed. Everyone who has purchased our already available Durarara!! Blu-ray Collector's Edition set will be eligible to receive a replacement set of discs, but once the time is right we'll make it known how/when people can register for this. In addition to this we still have plans to release the series on DVD and as a standard edition Blu-ray collection as well - both of those will include the re-authored discs by default - but again we don't have a time frame on this as things stand.
~ From previous updates you will have seen we tentatively listed Gankutsuou - The Count Of Monte Cristo for release at the end of June. We can now confirm that it won't be released until later than that. As such we have now removed it from our current release schedule - see the end of this update (below.) We'll be sure to keep updated as to when we're planning to get it released, but at this time we can say it will be this year.
~ If you're interested in the world of CG Anime, be sure to keep an eye out for the newest issue of 3D World Magazine (cover pictured left.)
In this issue there's a feature written by Jonathan Clements (co-author of The Anime Encyclopedia and author of Anime: A History) focusing on CG Anime (including a making of section focusing specifically on 009 Re:Cyborg with Tomohiko Ishii describing Director Kenji Kamiyama's workflow) and how it's developed. It's a very interesting piece and well worth checking out.
~ Following on from our Gurren Lagann update last week, there's been a small snag when it comes to replacement digipacks being sent out. Some were sent out but we're currently talking to our supplier about what's going on. More on this as we get it.
~ And just to include a mention of it in here, there is no new update or Patema Inverted at this time.
~ For Durarara!!, in case you just scrolled down and didn't read our update earlier in this newswire, please refer to the information above.
~ Patema Inverted Kickstarter backers! Have you read our most recent update (sent out on 4th February)? If not check your inboxes or head over to the Kickstarter website HERE to read it.
~ Mai Mai Miracle backers, as a heads up all going well an update is coming your way next week.
Before getting onto the question itself I'd like to say we were really happy to read the feedback on this section. The way we select the question is based on what we're asked frequently during the prior week.
Question: You've been mentioning Kill la Kill Box 2 and Wings Of Honneamise being released in March. Though you talked about them in some detail last week we still haven't seen any images of what either will look like. Is there a particular reason why and is there a time frame on when we can see images?
With all title we release any packaging we intend to use has to be approved by the rights holder. So the reason we haven't been able to show you images of what some of upcoming releases will look like yet is due to waiting for feedback on our approvals request. Unfortunately we can't pinpoint a time on when we'll be able to share images at this time, but believe me as soon as we can we'll be sure to do just that.
