    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I'm honestly happy enough with those announcements. I'm not a massive fan of Macross Plus & even less so of Zero, but it's nice they're both getting releases. It is funny to me that the Ultimate edition uses the same artwork as my ratty 20+ year old dvd set, but I guess those designs are...

    I picked up Irresponsible Captain Tylor. I had been meaning to check it out for years, but I wasn't going to blind-buy at full price. The lack of the ova release is a bit odd, but all I've heard about them is that they're kinda crappy filler that eventually builds up to future arcs that were...

    UK Anime Blu-ray & DVD Bargains

    It's a much smaller sale than their bi-annual ones but there's some decent US exclusive titles worth picking up if you haven't already. Hataraki Man, all three seasons of Chihayafuru, & Hakumei & Mikochi, a show I will forever hype up as one of the best iyashikei titles ever I've watched. I'm...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I'll admit to being a bit glib. Obviously blu rays are more expensive to produce here (Justin Sevakis recently said getting BBFC certification adds roughly an additional £5 per 13 episode release), particularly with CE packaging, while I still had to use a proxy shipper & pay imports to get my...

    Oh the JP audio is also included. That's generally just treated as an unspoken given,

    They've actually quietly added that it's solely the Bandai dub in the product details section. A bit weasely if you ask me but there we go. So it's £30 per film or £70 if you buy all three at once. Looks over at my Sentai boxset that includes all 3 films, the original 7 episode Oshii ova, the...

    UK Anime Blu-ray & DVD Bargains

    I caved. The prices seem to have gone up a few pounds for each blu ray set now, but fortunately I already had them all in my shopping basket. Apparently ebay commits to fixing the amount in place when you do that, which is a welcome change to the likes of Amazon. .

    Also, what does this mean for the future of MVM? It seemed like 80% of their releases were Sentai sub-licenses, with the rest being Aniplex... and that ship seems to have sailed to the Sony/CR graveyard.

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I guess the current strategy is just to sub-license as much of Sentai's library as possible. It's a reasonable enough decision in the short-term, although given how Sentai has been nearly strangled out of the US licensing market, there probably won't be many recent acquisitions coming from that...

    UK Anime Christmas Sales for 2023 [Anime Ltd's 12 Days of Xmas + More]

    It's a bit like that, although I'd say the better comparison would be Keep Your Eyes Off Eizouken. Just with the focus being more on creators working within the studio system, rather than the joy of creation for the sake of it. In any case, it's a damn good show & one of the darlings of the...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I was genuinely hoping we might get a re-authored disk of the two Patlabor films with the Manga Dub, but seeing as the reveal trickled out at the same time as the 12 Days offers being filled with old Sentai releases, I'm not going to hold my breath. I bought Sentai's box set (along with both...

    Sadly nothing in the sales for me once again. I think the only titles I'd be willing to blind buy would be Emma & Captain Tylor, & neither of those showed up in the 2/1 section. Maybe next year.

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    That's a pretty quiet announcement for Patlabor the Movie (& presumably 2). They're easily in my top five animate films, so I'll definitely pick them up, so long as the Manga UK dub is featured. I'm aware there might be some issues regarding rights and being made at PAL/50 fps. That said, people...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I'll definitely double-dip and buy a UK release of Shirobako. I'd like to think it was Miles that was specifically pushing for the collector's edition. ;) I'll probably pick up Re:Zero S2 as well, but oh boy, what a messy situation that appears to be. Well whatever, I'd be quite happy for AL to...

    Where to Buy Anime in the UK (was Anime Online Retailers)

    I'm cancelling my RS account. Given what I've heard of the CR store's pr department, and particularly their packaging, there will be no point continuing on with them as an international customer, regardless of whether they even cater to us anymore. Somehow I doubt the Iowan staff under Shawne...

    Ah yes, the set with the infamous 'No No Big Brother' stickers. Someone certainly had a unique sense of humour over there.

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    I mean it's definitely a more personal, low-key character drama in the vein of something like Bloom into You, Ping Pong or O Maidens in Your Savage Season (although definitely not as dramatic as that), so if you're aware & enjoy any of those, it's worth a shout. What I love about the show is...

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    After the Rain is such a damn good show and definitely worth checking out if you've never heard of it. Just don't be put off by the synopsis - despite the premise trying to bill it as a inappropriate age-gap melodrama, it's more a thoughtful & nuanced examination of desire, grief & purpose...

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    Land of the Lustrous was my personal favourite show of the last decade, so I'm definitely more than a little biased when it comes to recommending it. That said, it's not necessarily a tearjerker in the traditional sense of the word. I mean it's certainly sad, especially once you get into...
