    Naruto Shippuden Box Set 37 Review

    Naruto Shippuden Box Set 37 is… not the final release of the series, despite the first volume of its sequel series being released after it. What Box 37 IS though is the final few episodes of adapted manga material, and the finale of the long… LONG Fourth Great Shinobi War story arc. How does it...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    As per usual I have immediately pre-ordered the new Gundam release. Looking forward to Wing and 00 at the end of the year / start of next year as well (plus also weirdly looking forward to getting the little metal keychain with my CCA order...)

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I've had some problems here and there with couriers, but I don't use them often enough to get a gage on which ones are the best. I can say my Gundam NT set was delivered yesterday by UPS, so I got lucky this time, by the sounds of it!

    UK Anime Distributor Manga Animatsu Discussion Thread

    I find it odd that they're releasing Boruto before finishing Shippuden, especially as after Set 37 in July they'll only be one left to release. I guess it counts as a separate license or something?

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I just got an e-mail from UPS telling me my package had been dispatched, which i immediately thought to myself "Stupid spam, I don't have anything coming from UPS! Like I'd get tricked by a... oh, it says its from Anime Limited." So I'm assuming either my Gundam Narrative set has been...

    UPDATED: Funimation Acquires Manga Entertainment UK

    On one hand it's a real shame, Manga Entertainment's logo has been appearing on my purchased anime releases dating back to the first one I ever brought (Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie on VHS sometime in the late 90s), so to see them get brought out by an American company is disheartening...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Totally against type, at the start of the year I brought the 80s/90s Universal Century OVAs, Char's Counterattack, F91 and V-Gundam from the States, thinking that if Anime Limited did get back into Gundam it would probably be stuff like the promised 00 or Wing, and more modern UC stuff like...

    Castlevania - Complete Season 1 Review

    What’s that? “Castlevania isn’t an anime!” Well, I’ll have you know… you’re right. But it’s being released by Anime Limited, and ticks a lot of the same boxes that our favourite subgenre does anyway, so… let’s take a look at this game adaptation’s first season! Continue reading...

    My Hero Academia - Season 3 Part 1 Review

    My Hero Academia, the latest smash hit from the pages of Shonen Jump!, returns for a third season, and it’s safe to say that the episodes contained in this half-season may be the best so far… Continue reading...

    Naruto Shippuden - Box Set 36 Review

    Naruto’s main story is, slowly but surely, reaching its conclusion, but what’s this?! More filler?! Shocking! But is it filler that’s actually worth telling this time? Let’s find out… Continue reading...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I remember my first exposure to G Gundam was through the first Dynasty Warriors: Gundam game. I was so... so very confused, having only watched Wing and the first two UC series heading into the game...

    UQ Holder! Review

    MVM’s latest release, UQ Holder!, is a sequel to Negima! (a series that had quite the cult following a decade or two back) so why hasn’t UQ Holder! generated the same kind of interest? Well, manga-wise I can’t tell you, but the anime adaptation on the other hand… Continue reading...
