August 30, 2021 · 1 comment
So here we are in September…
Wait, it’s not September yet, what are we doing here? Well, our coming slate of forthcoming products is so exciting, we found ourselves raring to go on a Bank Holiday Monday, and couldn’t resist writing this blog post to fill you in on what’s coming soon!
We hope you’ll be similarly uncontrollably hyped by the time you’ve read up on our plans, so let’s get down to business!
September 2021 releases
As always, let’s begin by recapping what new titles September is bringing our way before we move on to talk about our October titles and new pre-orders.
Miss Hokusai – Blu-ray/DVD Limited Edition
Penguindrum – Collector’s Edition Blu-ray
Samurai Flamenco – Limited Edition Blu-ray
September 27th also sees Mobile Suit Gundam NT (aka Gundam Narrative) make its way to Standard Edition Blu-ray.
You’ll be able to order this title from our site starting Wednesday, 15th September, so prepare yourselves!
New September Early Birds
We’ve been hinting for a while at some big products we’ve been beavering away on, so let’s start with one of them, and a big new addition to our vinyl range….
JUJUTSU KAISEN – Deluxe Edition vinyl
Yes, that’s right, the superb OST to JUJUTSU KAISEN is making its way into our Deluxe Edition vinyl range!
This 5x vinyl set contains the full soundtrack to the series, encased within a high-quality rigid box, within which you’ll also find a 20-page booklet containing lyrics to all of the songs (in both their native language and with English translations where appropriate), an interview with the team behind the soundtrack’s creation and production.
Pre-orders for our edition open this Friday, 3rd September at 5PM, and run for a calendar month until October 4th.
Product: JUJUSTU KAISEN – 5x LP Deluxe Edition vinyl
Release date: 31st January 2022
Early Bird opens: 3rd September 2021
Early Bird price: £79.99
We know that many of you are also fans of vinyl variants when it comes to our Deluxe Editions, and we have big news for you on that count as well, as both Light in the Attic and Zavvi will be offering up exclusive variants of this soundtrack.
What’s more, Zavvi’s JUJUTSU KAISEN variant launches today at 6PM!
This variant (shown above) features the same contents as our own Deluxe Edition, but each disc features a special colourway designed to match character Satoru Gojo’s distinctive eyes. If you’re a fan of the show, don’t miss out!
Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of Underworld Part 1
We teased you with this earlier in the month, and although we’ve shifted its pre-order date slightly we can confirm that we’re returning to Underworld as Sword Art Online: Alicization barrels towards its epic conclusion!
This first half of War of Underworld contains episodes 1-12, plus the “episode 0” recap of the events so far across its two Blu-ray discs, which are housed in an artwork-adorned Digipak which will fit snugly inside the rigid case for part one.
Also featured in this edition is a set of six art cards, while in keeping with our previous Sword Art Online releases we are of course offering you a collector’s slipcase to store the entirety of War of Underworld, with space for part two when we release it later in the year. Artwork is to be confirmed, but we’re certain this’ll be another beautiful addition to any Sword Art Online fan’s collection!
Product: Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of Underworld Part 1 Collector’s Edition
Release date: 18th October 2021
Early Bird opens: 10th September 2021
Early Bird price: £34.99
On-Gaku: Our Sound
We’ve seen a lot of critical love for this incredibly enjoyable incredible one-man animation masterpiece, and so we’re thrilled that we’re finally able to bring On-Gaku: Our Sound to Collector’s Edition DVD and Blu-ray.
We’re hoping to be able to show off an approved design for this release soon, but for now we can tell you that we plan for our Collector’s Edition to sport the film on both DVD and Blu-ray, with both discs contained in an Amaray which is itself housed within a rigid slipcase.
Also featured in our release is an A3 poster, a series of five art cards, and a 12-page booklet exploring the film. Pre-orders open on October 18th, so don’t miss your chance to own this glorious little film!
Product: On-Gaku: Our Sound Collector’s Edition
Release date: 18th October 2021
Early Bird opens: 17th September 2021
Early Bird price: £19.99
Psycho-Pass: Sinners of the System – Collector’s Edition
It’s almost ready to go, but our Collector’s Edition of Psycho-Pass: Sinners of the System is now set for an October release.
Release date: 11th October 2021
As you might have guessed, this isn’t the full story for September – we still have an Early Bird pre-order berth to fill on September 24th, and we’ll be updating you with that in due course.
We also have plans for some further standard edition titles in October, including Mobile Suit Gundam F91 on Standard Edition Blu-ray, so watch out for more news there too!
Also, it would be remiss of us not to remind you that we’ve now revealed all of our home releases of NEON GENESIS EVANGELION – our Ultimate Edition is still selling fast, so make sure you don’t miss out if it’s caught your eye.
Which pre-orders are you looking forward to over the coming month? We’d love to hear from you, while we turn all of our attention to the remaining months of the year. Oh yeah, December isn’t all that far away now, is it? There’s plenty to look forward to there…
So, with plenty to look forward to, take care for now!
