Well, well, well…. we bet you weren’t expecting this piece of news! Today we’re excited to announce that for a limited time we are now taking pre-orders at our AllTheAnime.com online shop for the shiny upcoming Japanese Limited Edition set of Love Live! Sunshine!! The Movie: Over the Rainbow.
Now to be clear from the outset, this is not an All The Anime / Anime Limited product. This is a Japanese release, what we refer to as an “Import” product, that we taking orders for at our shop; once the stock is delivered later this year it will be shipped accordingly.
(If you’ve been following our activity at our online shop for a while, you’ll know we periodically get the chance to offer similar sets relating to Mobile Suit Gundam, the most recent endeavour in that field being the film Gundam NT, though that pre-order period has ended.)
We are taking orders for the Love Live! Sunshine!! The Movie: Over the Rainbow [IMPORT] set from right now until 5pm (UK) on Monday 17th June 2019! Not only do we have the import release itself, but also a bundle with a plethora of additional bonus items too!
If you’re a Love Live fan, read on below for all the details.
ABOUT LOVE LIVE! SUNSHINE!! THE MOVIE: OVER THE RAINBOW

Its first- and second-year students are now preparing for life at their new school – only to face a litany of unexpected trouble!

HOW DO PRE-ORDERS FOR THIS PRODUCT WORK?
Well first of all we once again need to stress that this is not an AllTheAnime / Anime Ltd. product.
This is a Bandai Visual product from Japan that will be shipped once stock arrives at our office in Glasgow, UK. (Expected to be early August 2019.)
This is a pre-order scheme in conjunction with Bandai that allows fans in the UK, Ireland and Scandinavia the chance to pre-order this product knowing it will be shipped by us from the U.K once stock has arrived.
The deadline to pre-order is 5PM (UK time) on Monday 17th June 2019.
Each order will also be shipped by the courier service UPS – this cost is already included in the price you pay at our online shop. So you’ll be able to keep track of its delivery progress too once it’s shipped.
Some important things to note –
- As we’ve said already but we need to reiterate this for a third time, this is not an AllTheAnime / Anime Ltd. product. This is a release from Bandai Visual in Japan.
- This is a Japanese product. Though the main feature itself will include the English subtitles to accompany the Japanese audio, any additional features on the disc itself and/or the physical items included in the package will be in Japanese only. Similarly, there is also NO English dub audio within this product either.
- The bundle available from our store will include the Limited Edition Blu-ray [IMPORT] set of the film + some additional bonus items for £99.99.
- The full cost must be paid immediately upon placing the order. (We do not have the facility to take delayed payments.)
- This price you pay automatically includes it being shipped to customers via the courier service UPS. (We will not ship the product any other way.) However, for any orders outside the UK there will be an additional shipping cost added as well to cover overseas shipping.
- The deadline to pre-order is 5PM (UK time) on Monday 17th June 2019. Once this date has passed we will no longer be taking any pre-orders for this product.
- Once stock has been delivered to our HQ – expected to be in early August 2019 – we’ll get them shipped as soon as possible to everyone who has pre-ordered it!
- Though unlikely, should any additional stock be available once orders have been fulfilled and delivered, these will be listed on our AllTheAnime.com online shop accordingly on a first-come first-served basis.
