We’re back with another edition of the Anime Limited Newswire to wrap up the month of March. Yes, it’s April tomorrow. This year is flying by!
~ Good news to kick things off! We’ve managed to get ahead of things on the production side of things we’re happy to confirm we’ve been able to bring the release date of the DVD version of Wings Of Honneamise forward. It will be available this from this coming Monday (6th April). Yes you did read that correctly. The Collector’s Edition Blu-ray/DVD combi version will be available from 27th April as we’ve been previously advertising. You can pre-order both versions from Amazon UK HERE and through our web shop HERE.
This news has been updated in the Release Schedule accordingly at the conclusion of this update.
~ In light of this news we’re going to be posting a comparison of the original footage compared to the remastered footage of Wings Of Honneamise later this week! Be on the lookout for it.
~ For those of you who have been on the fence about getting a copy of Space Dandy Season 1, we’ve just launched our latest Deal Of The Month at our Web Shop where you can purchase the Standard Edition Blu-ray version for only £19.99! Get the details HERE.
~ In case you missed it earlier today, we’re working with our partners in Japan to help launch the Hakuoki game on iOS and Android devices in the UK. You read the details of this HERE. If the name sounds familiar to some of you reading this, our friends at MVM Entertainment released the series here in the UK.
~ For those of you waiting for our next podcast, we’re hoping to record our next episode either later this week or next week. (Don’t forget you can listen to the first two episodes HERE.)
~ In case you missed it a few weeks ago, we have officially launched our replacement scheme for Durarara!! Blu-ray Collector’s Edition. Get the full details HERE. (If you’re planning to apply for replacement discs please take the time to read all the details posted.)
– A reminder that we are logging in applicants as we go and are intending to send a confirmation email to everyone who applies on a weekly basis. We ask that you please allow a few weeks to receive the confirmation from when you first apply. (We’ll be sending out the next wave of confirmation emails by the end of this week.)
