Flame Haze
No Not yet
as ALs next film is Nov I doubt if they get it will be in cinemas 2018
Mirai no Mirai correct? It looks like that is about 4 months after Japan.
Pancreas is a September film in Japan, so yeah that would put in January if the same pattern was followed, if they pick it up.

Flame Haze
Yeah Mirai of the Future Hosoda's film
Can't wait for that.
Seems there's been less films this year, even with the recap films they showed. I was hoping for the Eupho. films (Liz and the Blue Bird and the sequel film) to be picked up, but probably not as bigger show as the likes of AoT and Code Geass for them to go through the trouble with.

I assume pony can have worldwide of Liz and the blue bird is what stopped that
The mixed reception to other two Geass films probably stopped those

Just looking down the schedule and noticed this on Sunday:
- Goblin Slayer Q&A Panel with Author Kumo Kagyu | 1:00pm - 3:00pm | 9:00pm - 11:00pm
- Seven Seas Entertainment Industry Panel | 1:30pm - 2:30pm | 9:30pm - 10:30pm
- Yen Press Industry Panel | 1:30pm - 2:30pm | 9:30pm - 10:30pm

That looks like rather bad planning - I imagine there are a lot of people who would want to go to all three of those.

I dont want to link the prices
$250 for GoS bloody hell
$70 for HF LE
$40 for SE
You do know that a forum ain't Twitter right?

Always have troubles to link abbreviations to real titles, and i guess i'm not the only one (i'm not that special you see :p) so for me GoS is actually in Dutch the name of the former Soviet Union when it fell apart and was known for a while as Commonwealth of Independent States.

So in short what is GoS, HF and SE ???

I'm totally in for that Free! Film collection. I need to bite the bullet and get Funi's Iwatobi Swim Club release at some point, I honestly don't think AL will release it at this point.

I'm of the same mindset, having all the films in one collection is handy. As for S1 I agree it seems unlikely that Season 1 will make it over here.

AL would have gone after High Speed, Take Your Marks and now S3 them not being after any of those killed the hopes in my eyes of it ever coming

What I'm wondering is whether they'll pull a Future Diary and re-release ReLIFE In a set with the series and OVAs.

Witch Hunter Robin is a title I never got around to owning so I'm curious on that release.
