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.
The product itself isn’t released in Japan until November 2015, so we anticipate our stock to arrive following the Japanese release date.
Please read on below for details on what you can expect with this product.
Universal Century 0071. Three years have passed since the escape from Side 3’s Autonomous Republic of Munzo.
Casval and Artesia, the orphaned children of Zeon Zum Deikun, have fled to Earth along with Jimba Ral and taken refuge in the household of Teabolo Mass. They now live quiet lives under the names Edouard and Sayla. However, they are once again being targeted by the evil schemes of the pursuing Zabi family…
Meanwhile, Side 3 has been renamed the Autonomous Republic of Zeon. The Zabi family have seized power, and as they consolidate their system of control, they embark on the development of a new weapon called the mobile worker in order to resist the Earth Federation Forces.
