It’s time for another edition of the Anime Limited Newswire. Read on below for the latest updates direct from Anime Limited HQ.
~ First of all, we’re now just 5 days away from the arrival of our Terror in Resonance release! It’ll be available as an Ultimate Edition Blu-ray/DVD set (pictured left) as well as standard DVD. We posted an unboxing of this yesterday, you can check it out HERE.
If you’ve not seen the show before, it’s from the director of Cowboy Bebop and Space Dandy, Shinichiro Watanabe. You can watch the trailer below.
~ Also out this Monday is Kill la Kill Part 2 standard edition on Blu-ray and DVD. However in a late change to proceedings the standard Blu-ray and DVD of Miss Hokusai will not be released this Monday. We’re very sorry for the lateness of this change and we’ll have more details about this soon as possible for you.
~ In case you missed it on Friday last week, Durarara!! x2 Shou has been pushed to a tentative new date of 30th May. We posted a bonus edition of the Newswire to explain (and show you) why. You can find that HERE.
~ Following Terror In Resonance and Kill la Kill Part 2 next week, the next date for your calendars when it comes to releases from us is 2nd May as we’ll be releasing the wonderful film A Letter To Momo. We’re anticipating finished samples to arrive at our HQ any day and as soon as they do we’ll share and unboxing with you. If you’re not familiar with the film check out the trailer below.
~ Speaking of films, don’t forget that if you’re in Glasgow next week (Thursday 28th April) there’ll be a very special screening of The Case of Hana & Alice that will feature a Q&A with the director of the film, Shunji Iwai at the Glasgow Film Theatre. If you haven’t booked your tickets yet there’s still time. Book yours HERE.
Check out the trailer for the film below.
~ For those of you looking forward to our release of Lord Marksman and Vanadis, we have an update about on-disc content for you. Obviously you know that our release includes the entire series in both English and Japanese with subtitles, but there is extra content too. These extras are 13 “Tigre and Vanadish” chibi theatre shorts, episode commentaries, a preview of the first episode, promotional video and the clean opening and closing title sequences to the series. We’ll be releasing the series on a Limited Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and standard DVD. You can order your copy from our web shop HERE.
~ We know a lot of you are wondering what we have planned for a number of our upcoming releases. Rest assured that there will be details coming very soon about these.
~ If you’re going to MCM London Comic Con next month it was announced yesterday that the European Premiere of Gundam The Origin III will be taking place at the event! If that wasn’t enough there will also be a special guest from Sunrise, the Japanese rights holder of Gundam, as Mika Akitaka, mechanical designer on a variety of Gundam titles, including Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ, and many other titles such as Martian Successor Nadesico. You can read about this at the MCM website HERE with more details to be confirmed soon.
We know a few of you have been asking and we can confirm this is a standalone screening and not part of an MCM Loves Anime type of event that was held during MCM London Comic Con last October. We are investigating whether another event like that might be possible at a future event.
You can watch a trailer for this below.
