    Given that this is Aniplex, the sense in which this title is being rescued is not exactly an ordinary and unqualified one...

    Well it is rescued - rescued from not being licensed again so regardless of your issues with their pricing, it's still a license rescue.

    I'm still wondering what Aniplex are doing with Classroom Crisis (IIRC they cancelled their release of it)

    But judging by their previous outing, that will amount at least three films too many.

    Aniplex of America A-Kon 2017 announcements:

    [​IMG]

    Gurren Lagann
    is the next title to receive the TV BD-Box treatment. Similarly to the UK Ultimate Edition & Collector's Edition and the Japanese BD-Box, the new release from Aniplex will contain both the TV series and the Movie compilations. The on-disc content will match the volume releases of the TV series from back in late 2014 to early 2015, and the compilation set for the films from back in July 2014. SRP is $189.98 which is the exact same price for the UK Ultimate Edition based on the current rate, and Rightstuf price is $149.98.

    UPDATE: The set will also contain a rigid box just like Blue Exorcist.

    The Irregular at Magic High School Movie has been licensed and will be given a theatrical release nationwide in the United States later this year.

    In addition Fate/Grand Order -First Order- English Dub has been announced. Three other titles; Asterisk War, Charlotte and Erased, will all have their English Dubs available exclusively through Hulu for streaming.

    For simulcasts, Owarimonogatari Season 2 has been acquired with details soon to follow.

    What's the likelihood that the artwork for that Gurren Lagann set will change? I mean that looks awful, as if they got the work experience kid to do it, at least our re-release looked nice (and cost like £30....).

    It's using the artwork from the JP set. I don't think it will change.

    I don't think it's the art that's the problem it's the way it's presented with that cheap font and horrible border. It looks like it was designed by an amateur

    You mean the several seconds of pasted footage? You must be more discerning than me, as I've never noticed it.

    Wow, they're charging them that much for a re-release and aren't even making it as complete as the one we got for £30 a few months ago? That's low of them. Glad we have a different region code
