~ We mention this on the latest podcast but just to make a note of it here, for anyone who purchased a Blu-ray version of Kill la Kill Part 1 from our booth at MCM London Comic Con last October, we will be launching a replacement scheme for those those discs hopefully in the near future. (NOTE: This ONLY applies to Blu-ray units that were on sale at MCM London Comic Con last October, any unit purchased after the event had re-authored discs included by default.) We haven’t got a time frame on this as things stand – we’re currently working on getting Durarara!! sorted – but there will have a replacement scheme for those affected.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
Q: It’s been mentioned previously that some of your simulcasts might be available through your Vimeo download-to-own service, as was the case with Gundam Reconguista in G. Is there any update on this at all?
We can confirm that Seraph Of The End will be available through our download to own service on Vimeo, but we’re unable to confirm if The Heroic Legend Of Arslan and/or Plastic Memories may be available through the same service at this time. We can’t elaborate on more details regarding this at the moment, but we’re hoping to able to confirm details for Seraph Of The End soon. Please stay tuned for further updates.
