    Anime Limited & MVM's 12 Days of Christmas 2021

    Y'all, don't sleep on Girlish Number for only £3.99! It's like a more cynical Shirobako about voice acting. As for me, I jumped in on Familiar of Zero, Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun and a couple of the DVDs. Even though I've yet to watch the stuff I bought in the last big MVM sale...

    Anime That is Cut in the UK: The Definitive Thread

    I just watched that segment on HIDIVE and... yeah, I can see why... For those who don't know, the sequence is basically flashbacks to Kosaka as a 4 year old, and her mother's observations really sexualising her behaviour...

    Anime That is Cut in the UK: The Definitive Thread

    Well, it's certainly been a while since this has happened. Do you have any more information on the cut? Such as where it took place, etc? (And yeah, I checked the BBFC website and it's useless lol).

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I'll be at Scotland Loves Anime in Edinburgh on the Saturday and Sunday. Bit gutted that Heaven's Feel 3 is during the week, and that the combination of my uni timetable and that of flights/trains won't let me see the Friday ones. But oh well!

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    I recently bought the Japanese Blu-rays of Uma Musume Season 2, but I'd buy an English release in a heartbeat. Especially as the Japanese Season 1 Blu-rays are still very expensive on the second-hand market.

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I think I first watched Evangelion during that The Anime Network block that ADV used to have on… Propeller TV, I think? One of my earliest ventures into anime beyond Pokémon and such franchises.

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    In fairness, AL has had Ultimate Editions of other highly revered classic shows, and Andrew did say that the initial print run was based on their usual sell-through, with UE's never selling before launch, nevermind within 24 hours. I imagine fans being starved of an Eva release for over a...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Years ago, I had a pre-order for ADV's Platinum Collection DVD box set. However, I was unemployed at the time, and cancelled the preorder as I just couldn't justify the expense. I've regretted that for years, so while I think the set is pricier than I would have preferred, I've put an order in -...
