[Overseas] Anime News & Announcements

Luna

Thousand Master
It aired on German TV. Never watched it full, because it always aired at school time. It's somewhat (quite) episodic with an overarching plot. It's also quite a classic that's often referenced. (Including one very um, questionable one in City Hunter by the same author, which in turn is kind of a classic now.)

Madman already has To Love-ru licensed, but they're only releasing it on DVD from what I'm seeing.

@Bryan Admiraal, @Badej, The chances of a UK release of To Love-Ru is practically slim to none. Because as @Badej said, the show does contain quite a few questionable scenes. As myself and @D1tchd1gger have said before the "BBFC will take issue with anyone being under 16 years old" in those situations, which is part of their guidelines which also complies with the law within the UK. So in other words, no UK release for TLR without cuts being made.

I had to look up the Wikipedia entry on it (but I don't know how much of it is correct, seeing as it's Wikipedia), as I've never seen the series (and currently don't plan to at this time). According to the character details, Rito Yuuki is 16 years old, so he's safe. Mikan (Rito's sister), on the other hand, is 12 years old, so she's definitely too young. I can't find any details on the ages of the other characters (apart from Yuu Kotegawa, who is 19 years old).

Who knows what will happen regarding a potential UK release (should there ever be one), considering the BBFC had some inconsistent decisions (e.g. Shomin Sample being passed 15 uncut), but if To Love-Ru has to be cut, then so be it, they have to abide by the law.

Haven’t seen an official announcement yet, but reports on Twitter suggest Discotek have acquired the rights to both the new City Hunter film and ‘the rest of the anime’. Should be interesting to see if they can get that on Crunchyroll.
