It’s been a busy week so no better time than now to bring you our latest Newswire. Read on below
~ First of all a quick reminder that Kill la Kill Part 3 and Tiger & Bunny: The Rising are both available to add to your collection now! Kill la Kill Part 3 contains the final 5 episodes of the series plus the bonus OVA episode along with an art book and our UK Exclusive Collector’s Box to store the entire series!
~ For those of you attending MCM Manchester Comic Con this month it has been revealed that there will be an Anime Guest Of Honour for the first time at the event. Scriptwriter Kimiko Ueno (perhaps best known to western fans as scriptwriter for many episodes of Space Dandy) will be in attendance all weekend. There will be signing sessions and on-stage panel focusing on how anime screenplays developed. A truly unique opportunity for anime fans! And of course given that the event takes place just few weeks before the UK Blu-ray/DVD release of Space Dandy Season 2 we will be celebrating that as well.
There will be more specifics detailed as we approach the event so be sure to keep an eye on both MCM’s channels and ours for information.
~ Speaking of Manchester Comic Con you an expect more news relating to our activity at the event over the coming weeks. We can confirm that there will be an Anime Limited Panel and there will also be a panel for the Anime Guest of Honour, Kimiko Ueno over the weekend (dates/times TBC).
~ Since our announcement last week of Aoharu x Machinegun, we’ve confirmed one more new license acquisition! This being Castle Town Dandelion. (You can read about Castle Town Dandelion HERE.) Both will be simulcasting at Viewster.com with episode 1 of Aoharu x Machinegun available to watch now HERE. We should have information about when Castle Town Dandelion will be available on Viewster soon.
~ A reminder that the Deal Of The Month at our AllTheAnime.com web shop until the end of July is Tiger & Bunny The Movie: The Beginning for only £8.99! With us releasing the sequel, Tiger & Bunny: The Rising, last week, it’s the perfect time to check out The Beginning. Order your copy HERE.
~ In case you missed it earlier today we are now taking pre-orders for Gundam The Origin II: Artesia’s Sorrow Blu-ray Collector’s Edition in conjunction with our partners Bandai Visual in Japan at our web shop. You can the full details on this (in a very detailed post we published) HERE.
~ It’s been a while since we recorded a podcast, so you can expect us to be releasing one by the end of the week.
