    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Almost thirty years after airing, the first UK release in any format for Captain Tylor... a year after I spend over 200 quid importing the TRSI Ultimate Edition 😭 Still, I'm going to tell myself that it was worth it for the (admittedly fantastic) art book. And I'm pleased that more people will...

    That is so nostalgic. I owned all of those at one point, even the Western Connection Fuma Conspiracy with the mistimed subtitles. Really want that on Blu-ray, c'mon Discotek. Coincidentally: This version of Mamo has all four dubs produced, including the lively Manga UK one that wasn't on their...

    Seems that way. And yet last year they hired that marketing guy from Crunchyroll who, on his LinkedIn, calls himself a "Global anime marketing leader". Maybe he's doing some good work somewhere but we're not seeing much of it. Maybe it's just my natural pessimism, but it feels like the whole UK...

    I think AL are all right. Delays are part of their DNA. My observation is that they're wildly optimistic with release dates. CCS, for example, was announced in December for release in... January/February? Call my cynical (go on, I dare you) but they must have known that wasn't going to happen...

    This reminds me of the thing with "some" copies of Violet Evergarden not having two stamp books. I don't think I've seen anyone say they got two. Seems they don't want to draw attention to an issue that many people won't notice, which I kind of get, but... eh, bit slippery of them. Don't really...

    Typical. You wait four years for more UY on Blu-ray (Beautiful Dreamer was February 2018, god damn) and two turn up in a week. Don't like Remember My Love that much - too sentimental and Ataru spends most of the film - but... it's UY. Being an upscale of an early digipaint show, I was never...

    Amazing. When I were a lad, I dreamed (literally) of having a room with rows of shelving units taller than me, full of anime and manga, like a library. Clearly I didn't dream big enough 😲 From United Publications:

    There are no words to describe how cool that is. You're living the dream, man 😎

    Don't see why that should prevent them from informing us of delays, which would take all of a sentence on social media. Josee delayed, going to be a while longer, etc. I really don't think that's unreasonable.

    Less than a week until release and this is how we find out. How is it that AL, with all their online presence, can't communicate these things more effectively.

    Needs more Giant Robo for sure. Also Street Fighter II movie, Memories, and Beautiful Dreamer. Typing of UY, still waiting on Only You from UP. I swear it's always the things I want most that take longest 😫 Did get Project A-ko a couple of weeks ago though. Film hasn't held up too well...

    In that case, no idea what's keeping them from sending Silver Spoon. I paid a month ago, release date has passed, stock is now sitting in Amazon warehouses, and... nuffin. This is why I usually avoid their store in favour of UP. Except they don't have any of these releases listed yet 😫

    Did you order that with anything else or on its own? Waiting on dispatch notice for Silver Spoon, which is in stock at Amazon, but wonder if Boogiepop holding it up.

    Nice. I'm sure I read that Japan only got the shortened version. God Bless Discotek. UP should be sending out copies in the next week or two.

    Thanks for that. Good to know I'm not going mad. Sounds like AL are relying on stock being delivered as promised and will then send it when they can. I do wish they'd just say "here's the release date, it may or may not ship earlier kthxbai" rather than, say, give me false hope of...

    Aren't we due the pre-order CEs that were supposed to have had stock available before Christmas, then weren't, the first week of January? I must have deleted the email but I'm sure they sounded quite insistent that stock was arriving this week. I guess they could still be sent today, but the...

    The News Thread (for news that does not need a thread)

    The hope has been that sales of the movies will be good enough for Discotek to consider licensing the rest of it. I'm not sure if this new announcement makes that more or less likely to happen; will renewed interest push up the original's licensing cost, for example, or will a bigger distributor...

    While there are few people as cheerfully optimistic as olde Lunatico here, I have some reservations about this new UY series. Obviously it's amazing that this is even happening and I will be keeping a close eye on it, but UY is such a product of its time that I feel any modern incarnation is...

    Defective or Disappointing UK Anime Discs

    There's a very minor issue with the subtitling in Penguindrum. Dialogue that should easily fit into two lines is quite frequently being split into three, and occasionally four. Don't think I've seen anything like it before and doesn't seem deliberate. Still, pleased to say the subtitling is a...
