With everything that’s been going on at Anime Limited HQ the past few months, it’s resulted in it being a good few weeks since we had a proper Newswire to share with you. And chances are today might be your last Newswire for a few more weeks as we have lots of things to get sorted and moving onto following MCM London Comic Con this past weekend.
So the purpose of this Newswire is very much to bring you up to speed on where certain things stand, and a few additional notes for upcoming releases you should be aware of. As a note, if we don’t mention an upcoming title that you’re looking forward to it simply means that no news to share at this time. Read on below for your latest updates.
FOLLOW-UP TO ANNOUNCEMENTS LAST WEEKEND

Following on from those announcements, we have now an update on each title we announced to share with you. (Please note the above links will be updated with the following bits of information shortly too, but at time of publishing have not been.)
– Free! Iwatobi Swim Club
The only information we can add to the original announcement is that our projected release is at this time during the second quarter of 2017. But that is by no means a lock, please take that with a grain of salt.

– In some news that may surprise you, we have now brought the release date of our Outlaw Star Ltd Collector’s Edition Blu-ray forward from the 5th of December to the 14th of November! The reason for this is that earlier this week a retailer was sent their allocation of stock early, and consequently began shipping orders immediately despite it being a month ahead of the street date. So as to make sure everyone can receive their copy of Outlaw Star in a timely manner we brought the release date overall forward by a few weeks to 14th November.

In light of this news, the 14th November is now an even more stacked release day with the following being available:
