    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Unpleasant truth of the matter is because it is not a strong seller by any means and it was necessary to prioritise titles that were likely to sell stronger in the short term. Twin Star Exorcist was an unfortunate casualty there and there's plenty of qualitative arguments that some could be...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Figured it's worth me commenting on this briefly (in a rare appearance as I'm rather busy!) In terms of home video releases - it's definitely been a year of all change for us for many different reasons. The primary one is that we're no longer a small company of 4 people and we've finally...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    We've worked on this and I'll cover it in a mo - but re music - our only crime there was being ambitious. There's a reason not everyone does vinyl and it requires a tonne more work than video including a whole new workflow for production really. So yep - hands up, shouldn't have gotten so...

    SLA Edinburgh 2019 Line-up

    Whatever you say there really :rolleyes:. We see a similar version of the above everyyyyy year now - you'll always find a reason to justify not going and complain :). Prove me wrong and come along sometime though, by all means! If you'd paid attention before when we've discussed events...

    SLA Edinburgh 2019 Line-up

    Hahaha - well it is a part of Scotland Loves Anime's history! We've curated a whole strand of films that are looking back at Scotland Loves Anime of the past to celebrate our past 9 years where we screened 117 individual films (not including the second screenings we'll have done in one city or...

    SLA Edinburgh 2019 Line-up

    Figured I'd chime in as the festival director here... Promare: Actually, it makes more sense when you see the full line-up. That will be the second screening - the first one isn't happening at the Filmhouse and there'll be some more details on that shortly :). Code Geass - Lelouch of the...

    SLA Edinburgh 2019 Line-up

    There's a film slot missing on the Sunday and there's a reason there's a second screening of Promare on the Monday at the Filmhouse. Downside to our full programme not being online yet is there are some details missing just now... Also, I fixed the line-up a bit to make sure the last film at...

    SLA Edinburgh 2019 Line-up

    I can't help but notice despite never planning to attend in any form, you find time every year to critique our line-up. If I were to charge tickets for the privilege I'd make a guaranteed sale every year from you 😂,

    I do understand how tough it is to spot stuff outside of your own area so here's a list - as you'll see there are definitely some other things on: In the North of England: There's Leeds Film Festival - which runs an anime day every year still and we share programming ideas with annually. Run in...

    It certainly does - and just what we can there - which is the vinyl :)! AP

    Europe as well - English speaking is just fancy talk from me that it's coming to the USA as well without mad shipping prices :). There'll be CDs as well still, have no fear :)!

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Wouldn’t normally dip in nowadays, but just to say this definitely isn’t the case. The work we’ve done in the UK has yielded some really significant results and the UK is more than commercially viable. That’s why we’re hiring again in the UK just now and will have another role up in the UK...

    Would love to - but that artwork isn't allowed for usage now apparently - had to change our standard to remove it as well on latest reprint! The joys of artwork usage... AP

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Few ones I'm mopping up in passing: That's precisely it - distribution partner deals make no sense for the sale like that because of the structure of the deals. Nobody wins out on that side sadly on a business level :(. At that point we'd not decided to do one or I'd certainly have...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    We only ever put things into discount that are older than April release - so there's 0% chance of March Came in Like a Lion being at that price I am afraid this year. Same reason for Hyouka Part 2 being nowhere to be found! New projects unreleased ala Pigtails are potentials for the 12 days...
