    We are still working on our 2017 line up and we haven't announced anything beyond Starmyu, Drifters and Beserk officially yet but I think there is a very good chance that we will be releasing So You Thought There Was Never A Girl Online in the UK in 2017!

    Personally, I'd rather you bring us Grisaia. It's a much better series than So You Thought There Was Never A Girl Online.

    Very OT but Henceforth i would love it if people spoiler tag the names of the shows that they use images and gifs from. I love seeing them but always ends in me having to Google search for the show details online :p

    I would be over the moon if And you thought there is never a girl online? was released here, maybe even with a Seraph/Arslan-style Collector's Edition?

    Well this is awkward, Arslan Part 1 has Short Comedy episodes 1-7, but Part 2 has Short Comedy episodes 5-8. Huh?

    Any news on an updated schedule?
    Berserk and Drifters are the main two I'm interested in...

    If it is Universal then that's great. Nice collectors edition ahoy!

    I like the Arslan and Seraph CEs, I just wish the opening was in the side rather than the top.

    Still waiting on news for Netoge as well. Hope we get some more info on the 2017 line-up soon. Drifters is on my purchase list.

    Bonus disc TWO! And it's nearly 2 hours long?! Jesus that's a lot of extras!!!! :D

    Looks to be a good release, Universal have been great thus far :D (though I agree that side-opening would be better than top-opening)
    Would be interesting to see if anything has developed regarding Berserk 2016 as well (especially since a dub trailer was just unveiled)

    Loads of content i'll (unfortunately) never watch, just give me an artbook like the previous UP releases and i'll be happy!

    Three Blu-ray discs? This is interesting considering I took a look at the US release. They have 2 Blu-ray discs and 3 DVD discs. The extras that are listed on the BBFC are all on Blu-ray disc 2.

    Either way, it's time to intensify:

    If previous UP releases are anything to go by we'll get the best of both (booklet and bonus material) :D
