[Overseas] Anime News & Announcements

The only known rejection by the German FSK in recent years was Shobitch (Ep 3). Even Valkyrie Drive Mermaid and Testament of Sister New Devil (incl "Departures") passed with a "16" rating.
 
Germany fsk it's all good.the uk bbfc bunch of smelly pedo weebs it's banned.
Not everyone will know this but bbfc vetoed the part of the HRA on freedom of expression they didn't want the uk to have the same laws as the eu on freedom of expression and Valkyrie Drive Mermaid would be allowed if weren't for the bbfc vetoing freedom of expression part of the HRA.you can correct me if I'm wrong.

Stated many times. Depicting the sexualisation of characters that are or look underage is against the law! The BBFC are merely upholding the law, so blame which ever government passed it.

I'd certainly be interested in reading any sources you can provide. I also don't see how the BBFC have a power to 'veto' any part of legislation, beyond expressing an opinion when such things are put out for consultation.

The only issue I have with the BBFC is the fees, which can make a release of perfectly innocuous material prohibitive - particularly for smaller labels. But when it comes to their decision making, one has to applaud them for being transparent and for always making a concerted effort to make as minimal cuts as legally possible.
 
Kazé Germany announced a cinematic release of the "Sinbad-Trilogy" (Nippon Animation, streaming worldwide on Prime Video).
The cinematic release will be a compilation - however, as they submitted full-length versions for youth protection checks, the Home Video release that most likely will follow should be uncut (age 6 and up)

Technically no official announcement, but Madman employee Sly says that Madman has gotten the Love Live Sunshine movie for release in 2019.

We have great slate of films coming up including Fate/Stay Night Heaven's Feel 2, Love Live! Sunshine!! and more.
Also, nothing will change in how Madman operates.
