Yuki Yuna is a Hero: Seasons 1-3 Complete Collection (Blu-ray)
Now that's a surprise; I was expecting them to release each season separately. That set is going to have a hefty price tag, no doubt, but it's a definite purchase.

Not sure how I feel about having to buy season 3. I'm unlikely to watch all of it again, since most of the story was a major step down from the first two seasons, but on the other hand it's book-ended by a good episode at the beginning and end. Oh well, it will be worth it to finally own the first two seasons.

Nothing for me out of that Sentai lot for September. I already have the standard release of Dororo, and I'm not double dipping for a boxset that costs $130.

here's to hoping MVM gets the 2nd seitokai movie and hopefully yuki yuna as i randomly discovered the other day that it shares the same composer as the nier series so i have an interest in watching it now

Madman Entertainment October 2022.
Pleasantly surprised to see that Sailor Moon set back on the schedule. I was starting to think that Madman had lost the licence. 10 months is a hefty delay though.

I wonder how the picture quality will compare to the remasters that are starting to come out in the US.

considering they are a part of the aniplex machine dont think it would take much to get it back

but no pissing off the author would help .....

Wait, so both AL and Nozomi are releasing separate Macross Plus editions in the US?!

Macross got parole from license prison and it already seems like a minefield with at least 3 separate companies releasing the series.

I think that's just a typo, Nozomi are releasing Frontier and Delta.

Super hyped for Plus, I hope Anime Limited also release the other series here too.

Yep that's a typo, somehow Delta was written as Plus.

Ah that makes more sense 😂 it sounded weird but I wouldn't have been fully shocked if it was true.

So now we have to wait to see who's going to release Frontier / Delta in the UK.
I think if Nozomi were going to branch out and release here (like AL releasing Plus there) they'd have announced it at the same time.
If its AL I get contracts may not be signed but they NEED to say yes were are actively pursuing it before the preorders go up in the US!

I'm confident Anime Limited will tackle the Macross titles if the US licensors are AnimEigo, Nozomi, Discotek etc. If it were Sentai then MVM would be the one, and if its Crunchymonopolyroll then it's that zombie branch.

Yeah I'm also pretty confident theyll try but they have a terrible tendency of playing coy and just not saying anything 🤷‍♂️

I'm looking forward to Frontier and Delta, but 'Ultra Edition' is going to mean $200-300 before tax and international shipping isn't it... 😰

Hopefully Macross Plus will have both versions bundled together, since the ideal way to watch it is OAVs 1-3, then switch to the end of the movie for the improved finale. I wonder if they will be able to include the Manga UK dub. I imagine licensing that will have been complicated by Manga changing hands twice in the last year.

Poor old Animeigo getting stuck with the dregs. 😅

Wow, we've abruptly gone from famine to flood (or the US has anyway). That's going to be a lot of expensive, oversized boxes to import, or likely years waiting to see if UK releases are announced for any of them.
