Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna

Ever since we brought the film to cinemas last year, you’ve been asking us constantly “When is DALEK (Ed: I love that acronym) coming to Blu-ray?” We’ve been promising it for a while, but the time is now, as this month you’ll be able to pre-order your copy of the film to own and keep forever!

To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts

We do love to surprise you with a little curveball here and there, so how’s this for you? To ensure that this title does not go abandoned yes, we will be bringing To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts to Blu-ray… not just in the UK, but also for our fans in the US too!

This series sports some absolutely stunning artwork, and so of course we’ve compiled all of it! You’ll find some of this incredible work on the show’s rigid slipcase, with the rest included as a set of four artcards, with even more to be found inside the 20-page booklet within. The remaining artwork can also be found on the stylish Digipack which houses the two Blu-ray discs containing the series. Don’t miss the pre-order window to add this to your sacred anime collection – you’ll be able to find our Collector’s Edition release on our own store of course, and US fans can head over to the Crunchyroll Store to pick up their copy come October 12th – we’ll share the link for the US release once we have it.

Hula Fulla Dance

If you were at Scotland Loves Anime in Edinburgh last year, you may have been lucky enough to see a charming but emotional little film called Hula Fulla Dance – think Love Live as its most touching, but with more grass skirts.

Well, we enjoyed the film so much we wanted to release it on home video, so here it is – say aloha to the UK release of Hula Fulla Dance!

Bring summer back to your home with this colourful, gorgeous slipcase, within which you’ll find an Amaray gyrating (okay, not really) with excitement at the Blu-ray housed inside. Also included is a full-blown 48-page booklet with character designs and information on the wide-ranging cast of the movie, topped off with an article analysing the film and it’s very particular place in Japan’s culture and history.

If you’re a fan of our every-growing range of original film Collector’s Editions, this is a must-have addition!

Release date: 
20th November 2023
SRP: £39.99
Pre-orders open: Thursday 19th October 2023
Pre-order price: £24.99

Deiji Meets Girl

Some weeks, just one new anime pre-order isn’t enough, so how about a double-bill of new anime that you may have seen in cinemas?

In fact, double-bill is an apt phrase, as our next title is one you may have seen in a double-bill with Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko – the svelte yet beautiful short series Deiji Meets Girl.

This release also continues our October trend of keeping a little slice of summer in your home, with a trip to the beach for some very sunny artwork on our rigid slipcase, inside which you’ll find an Amaray housing the Blu-ray disc for this short series.

Also included is a 16-page booklet with character designs and info from the series to round things off.

Product: Deiji Meets Girl
Release date: 
20th November 2023
SRP: £39.99
Pre-orders open: Thursday 19th October 2023
Pre-order price: £24.99

The observant amongst you might notice there’s one slot left for the month of October – well, we’re going to keep you waiting before we reveal all the details on that, so for now let’s just pretend we know nothing about it, and stay tuned to all of our usual channels for more news in due course!

As always, this is only the beginning – our plans for Bleach on Blu-ray are already progressing apace, and we’re still hard at work on major projects such as Macross Plus and A Place Further Than the Universe that we know you’re all hungry for more updates on, and plenty more aside on both the home video and music fronts.

Of course, the end of the month also sees us return to MCM London Comic Con, so watch out for plenty of news about our plans for the show – and announcements during it – during October!

Until then, take care.
