Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom, 18th May 2021
One year ago today, Anime Limited announced the curated online film festival Screen Anime to bring together passionate communities in the UK and Ireland around the finest in animation, a quick and thoughtful response to the shutdown of cinemas and impacted opportunities for celebrating the arts necessitated by the global pandemic.
Fans in the United Kingdom learned last week that LUPIN III: THE FIRST will be premiering in select cinemas this June as the first exciting event in a considered and safe return to cinemas planned across the next few months. As part of Anime Limited’s dedication to sharing the magic of film on the big screen, the Screen Anime service will be retiring at the end of this month. If you would like to sign up to catch the final selection of films, including Tokyo Ghoul ‘S’ and Belladonna of Sadness, Screen Anime will continue to allow new members through 25th of May.
The staff of Anime Limited want to express their deep gratitude for the support that so many fans have given Screen Anime this last year and for participating in a community that has been a welcome respite to many during lockdown.
A beloved element of Screen Anime is the 10% discount for the AllTheAnime.com shop, Europe’s premiere webshop for home video and bespoke vinyl releases. To ensure that anime fans are able to maintain access to unbeatable prices on Early Bird specials, exclusive variant colours on anime soundtracks, and more, Anime Limited is proud to announce Anime (Un)Limited, available starting today for just £17.99 a year.
An Anime (Un)Limited membership will deliver:
- 10% off all store purchases
- Special offers at conventions starting in 2022
- Magazine shipped to home
- Exclusive deals on the store throughout the year *
* Special offers may not be redeemable alongside the 10% store purchases depending on type of offer.
Current Screen Anime annual members will receive a digital gift card for the AllTheAnime.com store via email this week, prorated based on the amount of time left in their subscription. Screen Anime subscribers with any other queries are encouraged to reach out to Anime Limited via the contact page.
For fans not yet able to go to theatres, Anime Limited has partnered with premiere anime streaming service Crunchyroll for Crunchyroll Movie Nights at Home, a series of hand-selected films available to fans in the UK and Ireland included in your Crunchyroll subscription at no additional charge. Films will be available for a month at a time for the next year, starting with May’s Penguin Highway.
Tickets are now on sale for LUPIN III: THE FIRST, exclusively in Showcase Cinemas on Wednesday 2nd June 2021. The iconic “gentleman thief” Lupin III returns in an action-packed, continent-spanning adventure, as Lupin III and his colorful underworld companions race to uncover the secrets of the mysterious Bresson Diary, before it falls into the hands of a dark cabal that will stop at nothing to resurrect the Third Reich. The gang undertakes trap-filled tombs, aerial escapades and daring prison escapes with the trademark wit and visual finesse that have made LUPIN THE 3RD one of the most storied animation franchises in the world, in a thrilling new caper that is sure to delight fans old and new.
