    Funimation "Pulls" Streaming for Interspecies Reviewers

    The problem is with studios that pursue a certain rating to get max cinema sales, and will voluntarily cut a film to reach that rating. The above idea does nothing about that approach to censorship.

    Studio Ghibli UK Thread ~ Laptua + Yamada BD numbers fixed

    It was the first Ghibli Blu-ray released in the UK, released on the Optimum label, before they rebranded as Studiocanal, and it was as Studiocanal that they committed to doing Ghibli as BD DVD combos.

    They never were customs safe. At least not as long as I've been using them which admittedly is only a couple of years.

    [Overseas] Anime News & Announcements

    I think the first run of Volume 3 was pressed, labels printed and packaged up before the BBFC announced their rating (you know how long it takes for ratings to appear their website), and for a small company, pulping that run would have been cost prohibitive. Besides, how many anime fans are...

    [Overseas] Anime News & Announcements

    Did you get the first print run? I think the first release of the series was uncut, but subsequent releases, when it went to collection form were cut. Certainly the check discs were uncut (the same thing happened with Battle Girls Time Paradox).

    [Overseas] Anime News & Announcements

    I hope this doesn't get a UK release. If it does, it'll have to be cut as per the BBFC dictates, and if that happens, chances are that the AU release will share discs with the UK and be similarly cut. I want this show uncut on Region B.

    UK Anime Distributor Manga Animatsu Discussion Thread

    Collections 3 and 4 were originally released here on Blu-ray by Manga in 2-disc collections as Parts 5-8, and Part 9 was released as DVD only by Manga. Thereafter it went to AL, who released most of the rest as DVD only.

    I see Blu-ray, I see DVDs, I see wall scrolls and plushies, but I can’t see Manga or Soundtrack CDs or anything else... Even on the site map.

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    They didn't wait on Hanabee for Kizumonogatari, so the option is there, but size of companies probably determine how long it takes for deals to be made, and as you say, Aniplex discs are region free; it won't surprise me if they try to eke out as much export profit as possible before licensing...

    And Crunchyroll have ****** up the queue again. They trialled this nonsense earlier and everyone raised a stink. They put it back today, a thing you can't sort or edit in anyway, just a listing of the shows you've added. Idiots!

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    Hanabee had a year or so of re-evaluation following the end of their deal with Rooster Teeth, which left them a little worse for wear. No releases, and their webshop pretty much died. They issued a statement a month or so ago stating that in 2020, they'll be getting back into releasing anime...

    General anime thoughts/discussion thread.

    I've been watching Noein again, and I've just realised it's another one of those 'showing your age' rewatched, just like watching Akira or Blade Runner last year, or Back to the Future 2 in 2015. Noein was made in 2005, and its dimension jumping post-apocalyptic future world showed the...
