It’s been a busy August for us thus far, with many of you enjoying the fruits of our Summer Sale, and another little announcement dropping yesterday at the time of writing this.

However, we know that you folks also want to take a look at other titles coming up, and so here we are (albeit a little later than usual) to bring you a peek into some of what September has in store.

Let’s start with a quick and simple guide to our August line-up, so you know what new releases to expect over the coming weeks.

August 30th also brings us a new addition to our range of Mobile Suit Gundam Standard Edition Blu-rays, with the arrival of Gundam Unicorn in this form.

Pre-orders open at next Wednesday, 18th August, so if you’ve been waiting for this one don’t miss your chance to pick it up!

New August Early Birds

As the first week of August saw us focus on our Summer Sale, this brought with it a number of new pre-order titles which we’ll be recapping in a bit, but first let’s talk about what pre-orders you can expect over the rest of August.

If you’ve been keeping an eye on our social media channels, you’ll know we have one massive piece of news coming soon, so we’ll just leave this here…

Beyond that, we do have one other major Early Bird coming this August…

InuYasha – Season 1 Blu-ray Collector’s Edition

A lot of you have been asking excitedly after our plans for InuYasha ever since we announced the title, and now we’re ready to reveal our Season 1 Collector’s Edition plans!

This Collector’s Edition holds episodes 1-27 of the series (plus clean opening and ending animations as a bonus feature), with our standard rigid slipcase housing a Digipak which itself holds the three Blu-ray discs containing said episodes. These discs will feature a new UK author using the Japanese home video materials prepared for this Blu-ray release.

Beyond that, our release also includes a 20-page booklet delving into the history of the series, and an A3 poster.

And one last thing…

Before we let you go, we do have one more thing to give you an early peek at…

That’s right folks, it’s almost ready, and we’ll be opening pre-orders for the Sword Art Online Alicization: War of Underworld Part 1 Collector’s Edition on Friday September 3rd at 5PM.

We’re still finalising our plans for the release, but we can confirm that what you can see above is only part of the story, as we’re also planning to include an outer box with artwork from character designer abec to hold both parts of War of Underworld, in keeping with our release of the first season of Alicization.

Stay tuned for full details when we launch pre-orders, but we’re sure you’re as excited as us to be returning to the (under)world of Sword Art Online!

As ever, this is just the tip of the iceberg as we move into the final quarter of the year, where you can expect news on more Gundam titles, a new vinyl title and more… not to mention that we’re already busy preparing a mammoth Christmas sale period!

So, with plenty to look forward to, take care for now!

    Quite a busy and exciting month for new Anime Limited releases I see. I haven't seen Inuyasha before so I'm going for that, along with Sao.

    I would love to get some of those titles for me! However, with all the Brexit and stuff what is your policy for shipping to the EU. Is it possible for you to dispatch your Blu-rays inside EU to avoid those pesky VAT taxation?
