My personal favourite is the TV Spot for End of Eva which is batshit insane and has to be included
Bloody hell, I somehow missed this altogether. How's that for an inside look of a nervous breakdown in progress...
Packaging is an interesting one but I reckon they might go for a Gundam style route where it's using Amaray cases and rigid boxes plus an outer box to house them all.
No chance of that dreamy Japanese CE packaging unfortunately...
Dude, don't even joke about putting EVA and amaray in the same sentence,
Heheh couldn't agree more but their recent trend with releases is not particularly promising in that regard...
Hoping for amarays just to see people get big mad :p
That's just plain mean!
Not gonna lie but I feel like I'm the only one in this universe (Anime viewer) who hasn't even watched the original EVA as of present.
!!!! You young-uns have a classic to look forward to then heh.

Just got reminded that Genocidal Organ had a theatrical release by AL a few years ago but it never came out on BD in the UK. Wonder who has the rights still?
When the partnership between Anime Limited and Funimation ended a few years back so did their various releases. Genocidal Organ was one of many releases cancelled due to the rights reverting back to Funimation.

It's been updated on the store page now. I was going to say that I'm sure it was still 16th August a day or two ago. They make use of multiple social media sites and yet somehow don't think to communicate these things.

I don't know if it's a cookies thing on my browser or if it's because I got up extremely early or whatever but I could swear it still had the wrong date as early as this morning because I checked before writing my first post. I follow them on Twitter, and I receive mails concerning their new stuff, but I didn't get an email about the delay at all.

I'm guessing it's only for people who ordered directly with them.
 
Yeah, I don't use their store so I usually have to get my info about delays from this forum.

Not that I'm really bothered cause I got plenty of other stuff to watch, but it kind of blows my mind that they get to the weekend prior to release before realising that they have to delay it for another six (or at least tell people who ordered from their store about it).

Yeah, the importance placed on communication feels inversely proportional to their growth. One would think it would at least be uniform across all their social media so everyone can keep up to date.

Maybe eventually.

I got the email about the delay also. I'm never bothered really, when I pre-order I just kind of forget about it until it shows up. I'm still going through what I bought from Christmas lol, and last year.

I don't consider the Penguindrum delay a big deal, but I can't help but wonder if this is going to be isolated to that release or affect other things going forward, Eternity and the Auto-Memory Doll releasing on monday as scheduled seems rather unlikely, and the pre-orders launched during their sale don't seem to have any release date listed at all now (unless they're actually shipping already?).

About Penguindrum though, the one thing I am curious about is whether it'll be a single or 2 amaray cases, the updated image still suggests single but the text still states 2 amarays, 2 cases would be more in line with their recent releases, especially for something with 3 discs...

It isn't an isolated case, Demon slayer part 2 slipped release dates twice before it was finally released, it was originally April, then slipped to June and finally released in July.
Penguindrum is another slip.
It maybe why we still haven't had the release schedule for September, as they don't want too many more slipped release dates, even though we only get news of what is scheduled a month before and they still have problems, are we to see weekly updates for releases, rather than monthly?

Since Anime Ltd was listed on the credits of EVANGELION: 3.0+1.01, I am wondering if they have licensed the final movie and the previous Rebuild movies as well. I noticed that Manga UK's releases of Rebuild movies are out of print and I sadly wasn't able to buy them when they were released by Manga UK. So, how likely do you think it is for Anime Limited to have licensed ALL the Rebuild movies? I would love a complete collection release with all the four movies together.

Well for starters, Funimation currently owns the home video rights for all English-speaking territories (US, UK etc) and at the moment 1.11 is out of print. It is possible for Anime Ltd to acquire the rights for 3.0+1.01 but I don't think a complete collection will be possible at this moment.

There's also the fact that later this month, EVANGELION: 3.333 is getting a 4K Ultra HD release which I am curious to see if that will make it over to the west.
