    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    For non-Aniplex titles, I know the 90s Berserk TV on BD would be one; that's never gotten a BD release in the US. But I suppose I see your point; if MVM has poor sales expectations, even relatively limited costs might not seem worthwhile. It's interesting that DVDs are still considered viable...

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    A licensor restriction very well might be the reason, but that's a completely different reason than the one I was questioning. Just thought the idea that the U.S. release being DVD only as the limiting factor was odd, considering the number of UK only BD releases.

    New transfer? One already exists, as I mentioned in the very post you quoted. That's my whole point; the materials already exist, and a new transfer isn't required. If it was DVD only in Japan, I wouldn't even wonder about it.

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    I don't see how that explains it; MVM's released things like Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs, which never got released in the U.S. at all, on blu-ray. Also, Air has a blu-ray release in Japan; it was one of the earliest anime releases on BD, way back in 2006. So the materials already exist for BD.

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Any particular reason to think that? Because to me, it looks like AL licensed Kakegurui planning on using the Netflix dub, but the extreme delay for a release makes me think they had trouble getting it. Either it's taking this long to negotiate a workable price, or AL gave up on releasing the...

    Netflix has been charging absurd amounts for a lot of their dubs; so much that it's significantly cheaper to just do another dub of your own instead.

    Really, really hoping that one of them is Kakegurui; feels like I've been waiting ages for that to get a release. Shame Anime Limited only has the license for season 1, but I liked the first season better than the second anyway (although I'd be happy to have both). I'd also be interested in a...

    [Overseas] Anime News & Announcements

    I'd say that the chances of them accidentally including the trailer to a show they don't have is basically zero. So they have Nana, that's pretty much certain. It's really just a question of when they release it at this point, not if. The fact that we've seen a trailer for it (when we haven't...

    [Overseas] Anime News & Announcements

    I'm not super familiar with most of the 80s mecha series either, and it's not one of my favorite genres either (although there are a couple, like Votoms, that are truly excellent). I've never seen Laserion or Daltanious either. I can give you an interesting trivia fact about Daltanious, though...

    Not sure about the What If ones off hand, but I think they're pretty short and insubstantial. Very Merry Christmas is a full adaptation of novel 6, however, and is fairly long. I believe it's 3 hours or so; not sure of the exact runtime, but it's roughly that.

    Anime Limited & MVM's 12 Days of Christmas 2020: 1st-12th Dec | 9:30am MVM, 5:00pm AL

    Nope, the US set had the What If dramas (which honestly are pretty insubstantial); the Very Merry Christmas audio drama, which is the only adaptation of novel 6, has never received any English release. And that's exactly why I'll be getting the UK set, even though I have the US one already.

    UK Anime Distributor Crunchyroll/Funimation/Manga UK Discussion Thread

    Again, false, except for episode 1, like I explained in my last comment. This is a misperception that started because Funimation initially only released screenshots from episode 1, leading people to draw that conclusion. Later released screenshots from other episodes, and testimonials from...

    UK Anime Distributor Crunchyroll/Funimation/Manga UK Discussion Thread

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. What you're saying is completely false. The Anniversary BDs are NOT the season BDs cropped back to 4:3. They are restored to the original 4:3 ratio. Speaking from personal experience here, as I have both. Episode 1, specifically, is more cropped than previous releases...
