Can you believe it’s June already? We sure can’t but it stop us from kickstarting the month with a packed Newswire for you.
~ First of all, Kill la Kill Part 3. Following our news from last week [see this] we can confirm that the new release date for this will be 29th June. (So only a few weeks past our previous date.) Don’t forget you can pre-order your copy from Amazon UK HERE and through our web shop HERE.
On the subject of Kill la Kill Part 3 – REMINDER: If you purchased Kill la Kill Part 3 from our booth at MCM London Comic Con you can apply for a replacement rigid case by following the steps HERE. (Deadline to apply is this coming Monday 8th June.)
~ For those of you wanting to get in early with some of your pre-orders, you can now pre-order the following titles from Amazon UK:
(Please note that dates listed are tentative at this time and subject to change.)
- 17th August – Sword Art Online II: Part 1 (Collector’s Ed. Blu-ray/DVD combi, DVD Version)
- 31st August – Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya (Collector’s Ed. Blu-ray, DVD Version)
- September 28th – Psychic School Wars (Collector’s Blu-ray/DVD combi, DVD version)
- September 28th – Tokyo Ghoul (Collector’s Ed. Blu-ray, DVD version)
We’ll have more details to share about each release soon. These dates have been added to the release schedule further down accordingly.
~ Some of you eagle-eyed people may have spotted some provisional artwork for our upcoming release of Space Dandy Season 2 Collector’s Edition and our Space Dandy Complete Season 1 & 2 DVD Collection on Amazon UK. We do want to stress that these are not final, but all going well should be a good indication of the what the final product will look like following approvals.
We wanted to touch on a few points that some have asked about
- Both the Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and Collector’s Edition DVD versions of Space Dandy Season 2 will have an O-card (aka a sleeve or slip cover) around the rigid case. That’s what you can see in the two images above. Under that will be the rigid case itself featuring a clean version of the artwork.
- The Season 1 & 2 DVD Collection is effectively our standard edition DVD release of the series packing both seasons into one box set.
- As has been mentioned on our podcast recently, the Collector’s Edition Season 2 of Space Dandy will include an artbook and 20 art cards featuring artwork as seen in the Japanese releases. (We should be able to share more details and imagery of both soon.)
~ We mentioned our podcast a moment ago, have listened to our latest one (released last week)? If not you can get the details HERE. Also the Podcast is now available through iTunes. You can subscribe to it HERE. We’ve had some great response to our latest podcast and we want to extend a big thanks to everyone who has listened to it so far.
~ For those interested Zavvi have some cracking deals on Anime Limited titles at their website HERE. Titles include Cowboy Bebop, Kill la Kill, Outlaw Star and Space Dandy.
~ Speaking of deals, it’s the start of the month and that means a new Deal Of The Month at our web shop. Until 30th June you can pickup a copy of Space Dandy Season 1 Collector’s Edition Blu-ray for only £24.99! Order your copy HERE, baby.
~ Mai Mai Miracle Kickstarter backers. We know it’s been a while since the last update but you can expect one by the end of week (says Kerry.)
~ We’ll touch more on the replacement scheme in general for Durarara!! in the replacement update section below, but we wanted to say that we’re delighted with the feedback we’ve received for our reauthored Blu-ray discs. We wanted to direct your attention to a review by MyReviewer HERE who describe our reauthored discs (that is also our Standard Edition Blu-ray release of Durarara!!) as the definitive release of the series!
The latest episodes of Seraph of the End, The Heroic Legend of Arslan and Plastic Memories are available now! Click on the links below to watch them.
~ We sent out quite literally loads of Durarara!! replacements last week, around 90% of UK applicants and around 50% of International applicants, so much so that we’re actually needing to get more discs sent to our office to be able fulfil the remainder and new requests that have come in since then. If you’ve yet to register for replacement discs, a reminder that those who purchased our Limited Edition Blu-ray set of Durarara!! can still apply for a replacement set of discs. Get the full details HERE. (If you’re planning to apply for replacement discs please take the time to read all the details posted.)
~ We’re hoping to be getting the next wave sent within the next few weeks. (As mentioned above, we’re waiting for more discs to be delivered to our HQ.)
~ A quick reminder that a confirmation email will be sent to applicants once following the dispatch of replacements to the email address you registered with. (Be sure to check your spam box as well – sometimes anything can end up in there and you don’t even realise it.)
