It’s time for your latest edition of the Anime Limited Newswire. This week our roundup of news brings you details on our upcoming releases of Tokyo Ghoul, Ping Ping The Animation, 009 Re:Cyborg and more. Read on below for details.
~ Our next releases is the film 009 Re:Cyborg on 14th September as a UK Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD set that includes the film in both 3D and 2D on the Blu-ray disc. Also included is a DVD disc with the film along with a bonus DVD that includes some behind-the-scenes featurettes. If you haven’t already you can check out the trailer for it at our YouTube channel HERE.
We’ll be sharing an unboxing of the finished product with you later this week so be sure to keep an eye out for that along with some other cool things.
~ Speaking of 009 Re:Cyborg, it has come to our attention that some people may have received a notification of there being a delay of our release until October. Just confirm this is not the case and is very much on track for a 14th September release.
~ If you’re looking to pre-order our release of Sword Art Online II: Part 1 Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD (out 21st September) there are currently some great prices being offered by the likes of Amazon UK, and Zavvi to pre-order it. Be sure to take advantage of this pricing while you can as we don’t control the prices that retailers ultimately charge for our titles.
~ If you haven’t got your copy already don’t forget that Space Dandy Season 2 is available to add to your collection now! We’ve had tremendous feedback on the finished product and we’re delight to see how happy you are with it. If you’re wanting to see a new preview for the show we recently released this clip below on our YouTube channel.
~ Looking ahead towards the end of the month, we’ll be releasing Season 1 of Tokyo Ghoul on DVD and Limited Collector’s Edition Blu-ray from 28th September. As we mentioned a few weeks ago it has been passed uncut and allocated a 15 certificate by the BBFC. With that in mind here is an updated visual of the Limited Collector’s Edition Blu-ray for you.
For those wondering, the red bar at the bottom is a separate card that will be packed inside the plastic wrap when released, so that is not part of the box design – that is still clean as you will have seen from past visuals we have shared.
~ Speaking of Tokyo Ghoul being uncut, in case you missed it earlier today we posted a piece HERE highlighting the differences between the original TV broadcast version and our upcoming uncut release of the series. You can expect more details on what you can expect with our Tokyo Ghoul Season 1 release over the next few weeks.
~This past week we were able to reveal the first visual of our upcoming release of Ping Ping The Animation Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD set. You can pre-order your copy today from the likes of Amazon UK and Zavvi today.
