We have made it to July. So what better way to kick off the month than your latest edition of the Newswire! Read on below for the latest updates on all things Anime Limited.
~ First of all this week we have two new titles available! Kill la Kill Part 3 and Tiger & Bunny: The Rising are both available to add to your collection today!
~ In case you missed it yesterday, we have licensed the series Aoharu x Kikanju. And we’re happy to confirm that it will be simulcast at Viewster.com. The start for the simulcast case is to be announced, but once we have more information we’ll be sure to let you know.
~ For those of you looking for a good bargain our web shop Deal Of The Month for July has launched. It’s Tiger & Bunny The Movie: The Beginning Collector’s Edition Blu-ray/DVD for only £8.99. (Very timely as Tiger & Bunny: The Rising is now available.) You can order your copy from our web shop HERE.
~ Speaking of Tiger & Bunny, we mentioned last week that we’d be bringing you an unboxing of our Tiger & Bunny: The Rising release. You can still expect it, except it’ll most likely be tomorrow (Thursday) instead.
~ Have you checked the English dubbed trailer for Sword Art Online II ahead of the release of Part 1 in August? If not you can watch it HERE.
~ Speaking of trailers did you catch the English dubbed trailer for 009 Re:Cyborg that launched at our YouTube channel last week? If not give it a watch HERE.
~ In some very exciting news, Miss Hokusai won the Jury Award in the Official Feature Film Competition at the 39th Annecy International Animation Film Festival. As we’ve mentioned before this will be coming to UK cinemas later this year. You can watch the subtitled trailer for the film below.
~ This weekend Japan Expo is taking centre stage in Paris and some of us (the UK Anime Limited team) will be heading across the channel to lend a hand to our French team over the weekend. (In case you don’t know Japan Expo is one of the biggest conventions in Europe. So it’s a very big deal in France.) All going well you can expect a few updates from us over the course of the weekend or failing that a summary of some kind here at our website next week.
~ All going well, and depending on how much our team haven’t melted in the intense heat while at Japan Expo, we’re planning to record our next podcast next week.
