UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

I dont know if someone from AL would be able to comment on this, but I'm always curious which is more popular.

For every anime movie that comes along, I do check the seat bookings for dub and sub screenings, and subtitled showings are pretty much always more popular based on the amount of seats booked. (and thats even the case for shonen series where you might expect a higher amount of dub watchers.)
The subtitled screenings at my local Odeon are usually pretty full of people, but not at the local Showcase. And it seems to only be Showcase doing the subtitled version; sadly my local didn’t make the cut.

It was posted at 12. (Hanners is away so it was pre-planned iirc)
Interesting that the November releases listed in that Newswire does not list the releases of Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of Underworld Part 1 (was due on 22nd Nov) and Black Lagoon (was due on 29th Nov). The respective pages for those releases still list those dates though?

Hopefully its just an oversight on the Newswire as delays to those would be very disappointing...

Same for Penguindrum (was now due for 22nd Nov, after some previous delays), but the page for that release still lists that date.

Wonder how much the new Cowboy Bebop release actually is, I wouldn't mind replacing my old CEs but they're having a laugh if the SRP is actually £69.99. The Newswire lists it as £39.99 (which seems more reasonable for something they've released several times already) but the product page has both £59.99 and £69.99 listed.

I have AL's complete series release for Cowboy Bebop so I wonder what the difference would be besides CE packaging?
Considering that it's the same number of discs, pre-order starts next Friday, release is supposed to follow on November 22nd, and there are no extras listed on the product page, I honestly wouldn't expect any.

I spotted that too! Thought oh £40 srp will probably be £30 EB that's pretty reasonable, so clicked on the link and saw £70 srp and £45 EB... there's the AL we know and love 😂
Great artwork, hard pass.

would've been interested in the cowboy bebop CE had they included the CD soundtrack in it seeing as the only way to get it from them is to buy the £200 vinyl set

I still haven't received Evangelion from Zavvi. Money was taken but no shipping email. I've got my other Zavvi orders that were made after the money was taken for Evangelion. Might give it till Monday or Tuesday then contact Zavvi.

Is there another Cloud Matsuri this year? (I kinda assumed there would be), I just took a look via google and didn't find much relating too a 2021.
It just the previous year it was 21-22nd, and if they were thinking roughly the same sort of time that would put it at the weekend of the 20-21st (which is now 2 weeks away), so was just thinking there would probably be some on site advertising on All the Anime or something at this point (maybe I'm jumping the gun and there plan was to put it out on Monday/start of new week).

Or is Cloud matsuri more of a replacement for the Anime conventions that couldn't go ahead?
