UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

I think with regards to shows like Marmalade Boy (which would be great if they were brought over), there's also the question as to whether SD-BDs (Standard Definition transfer on Blu-ray) is marketable in the UK anime scene.
The other problem is: SD-BD are usually marketed at lower prices than regular BD and are assumed to reach a smaller audience - but still BBFC charges full rates. Could £ 20,000 BBFC fees justifiy Marmalade Boy?
And sadly only very few anime that are avaiable on SDBD in the US already got BBFC for an earlier UK-DVD.

Relaxo you make a valid (though unfortunate) point. I suppose if MB ever gets a full HD remaster and release maybe that might increase its chances, though that would also increase the cost of production for the discs as there would be more of them. I also wish someone would bring over Touch and The Kabocha Wine but chances of that are slim to non-existent (unlike awesomely lovely L/Eru-chan)...

...I wonder what the early bird price for 5cm Per Second Steelbook will be? :) (felt a bit guilty for getting this thread arguably far off topic so am trying to rectify that a tad XP ).

Just jumping in here. If you don't receive an email about the discount code after the end of your free trial, send Screen Anime a message on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram (whichever's your preferred) with the email address you used to sign up to Screen Anime, and that can be looked into for you.

5cm/s & CWCLV's early bird probably won't appear for a while. Given they're announcing the slates each month I suspect the rest of October and early November will be dedicated to November titles.

I think as Violet Evergarden seems to be on track to be a £100 UE (due to having the dub and having the extended 13 as sub only) and they want a lot of material it won’t be till 2021


Death Scythe
I've decided I'm going to wait for the eventual CE which I'm fairly confident WILL happen. £50 extra is too much for added stuff I don't particularly want, especially when Destiny is probably going to be an extra £50 down the line also.


Pokémon Master
Don't be a boob, buy Gundam SEED.

I do wish they would confirm if SEED is getting their usual type of release before the UE comes out, I don't care about the extras and would very much prefer a release similar to every other Gundam release they've done.

I'd assume its gonna fit with previous releases (can you imagine the backlash if it didn't?!) 😂
I'm more interested in the art book that was mentioned in the initial announcement but missing any kind of recognition when the preorder went up... if you're trying to flog a £120 box set I'd think saying it comes with a big art book would be a selling point.
