    Aniplex of America announcements:

The entirety of Season 1 will be released as a complete Blu-ray box with the same on-disc contents as the Blu-ray Limited Edition Box Sets from back in 2013. The set will be released on June 27th, the same day that both Magi and Sword Art Online are being re-released. SRP is $199.98 and Rightstuf price is $159.98 (the same as SAO).

    In addition Blue Exorcist Kyoto Saga English Dub is being simulcast exclusive on Hulu.

    The spin-off series WWW. WAGNARIA will be released on Blu-ray in two volumes. The first is due July 18th and the second on October 17th. The title will be Japanese with English subtitles only.

    Occultic;Nine on the other hand will be given an English dub and a Blu-ray release in two volumes. The first is due September 26th and the second on December 26th.

    HoneyWorks' second film The Moment You Fall in Love will be streaming on Crunchyroll next month.

    Wait, are they charging $160 for the same discs that Manga are selling for like £30?

    for Blue Exorcist if you want a nice artbox release for cheap just get Madmans, or if you really care and just want the show then get Manga's. Paying $160 for AoAs is crazy

    Still annoyed I was suckered into the LE DVDs for Blue Exorcist. At least I learnt in time for Magi - but there are still several DVD-only sets which really deserve the upgrade except they probably sold terribly due to AoA's staggered release strategy.

    All copies of Occultic 9 should be put in the bin. Good look in selling that overpriced rubbish Aniplex

    All The Anime | Announcement Day 0 and Day 1 #1

    Your Name coming to IMAX theaters this August.

    Project Itoh: Genocidal Organ, the third and final part of the Project Itoh trilogy adaptations is coming to the UK with a theatrical screening this July. Funimation managed to acquire all three films at the same time but Anime Limited only managed with just Empire of Corpses and Harmony a few years ago.

    Bonus:

    This was announced yesterday, but PQube did a similar type of announcement last year with Steins;Gate 0.

    Chaos;Child is heading west for PlayStation 4 and Vita. This is the fourth main instalment in the Science Adventure series, it also has ties to Chaos;Head but it's mostly standalone. The visual novel has been rated PEGI 18 and CERO Z for its strong bloody violence.

    They've been using those shirts for awhile now, I think it was for promoting Prisma Illya?

    Happy to see the rumor confirmed. Love the first Steins Gate game (still need to play 0), so this will be a day 1 purchase.

    Some good titles there. Will be picking up Netoge and Drifters. It's a shame that Grisaia wasn't on the list but there is a small chance MVM may have it.

    Only really interested in Drifters out of that Universal lot, and even then only at the right price.

    So was Anime Limiteds panel just about theatrical then?
