Agreed. Didn’t they say that they were planning to release five gundam series this year? No way that’s happening now.
I appreciate with Crunchyroll now being the all consuming juggernaut in western anime they're going to need to prioritise new avenues to stay afloat in the current market. But they've had the Gundam license since 2015. It's now 2022.

Hey at least they're announcing it's delayed and that 'classic' CDPR style of tweet 😎 love it.

Step in the right direction for communication 👍

I just checked my bank account and all the anime have charged me £17.99 for (animeunlimited)
which is fine but I would of liked of been notified beforehand.
If my membership was up for renewal maybe send a notification. There may be some members that do not wish to renew.
I agree. I had the same "problem". I didn't realize that it was a subscription so I had no clue it would renew itself automatically.

I don't know if it was a random old advert or if someone pressed a button a little too soon but I saw an advert for ScreenAnime starting up again for a limited time until the end of October... May have been imagining things don't quote me 😂

No plans for it just now so not sure what happened there! Scotland Loves Anime may borrow the name again in October when we do a digital festival but yeah nothing to go round there.

@anime_andrew as a fan of Detective Conan myself, have you ever thought about bringing any of the US releases over here?

Such a strong show for all ages having no presence here in UK, has always mystified me.

Previous attempts (like the manga) for Detective Conan stumbled there somewhat in the UK. Personally I'm a big fan of the show though so it's definitely not impossible, no plans at this moment though....

This!! I would love Rose of Versailles and especially Dear Brother getting UK releases! Please @anime_andrew we need more classic shoujo anime! 🙏

Not an impossibility but the issue with classic titles is the BBFC costs often outweigh the interest in the title for homevideo, it doesn't make it impossible but it does mean it's a sort of right-time-right-place situation. We have Rose of Versailles in France so definitely fans of the title and keep coming back to look at viability so never say never again...

While we're hounding poor Andrew with questions about shows we'd like to see, I'd love to see Sound of the Sky (ソ・ラ・ノ・ヲ・ト) given a new lease of life with a Blu-ray release (I think Nozomi released one in the US some time ago?). I think Beez's DVD release might be the last release of theirs that I bought, and that show really is a hidden gem, in my opinion. Now that I finally have some free time, I might give it a rewatch and pitch a retrospective piece somewhere.

Honestly, I'm still chuffed that they released Anti-Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon. I felt that the show really went under the radar at the time due to premiering in the same season as the similar Chivalry of a Failed Knight and The Asterisk War, but I had a good time with it. I'd pretty much ruled out a release in my mind, so it was a nice surprise to see that announced.

It's only anime-adjacent since it's Chinese but has there ever been consideration of trying a release for something like Mo Dao Zu Shi? It's not too long and I would pay a small fortune for a disc release with the effectively-unobtainable-in-the-west soundtrack. Obviously not the easiest one since it means dealing with completely different companies but the viewing experience is so irritating on YT/WeTV that I thought it was worth an ask! I had high hopes when Funimation started showing a few titles but that never seemed to get much support, and with Seven Seas promoting the novels so heavily it would be great to see a reliable company swoop in and complete the package.

Also throwing my hat into the Darker Than Black push; it has always been pretty popular on the forum here and seems to successfully appeal to both old fans and younger folk.

I would sell an organ for a western physical release.

Looking through the Belle track list and it looks to me that U (JP version) is missing and a few of Belle’s songs in English are also missing?
