Just a bit after the news have been released, I am here, as your loyal Shinigami, to give you a sneak peak of what has been announced at this year’s London MCM expo. Announcements from Manga UK, Kaze UK and Anime on Demand, MVM are available as well as all the titles of the announced new additions to the British market in subtitles, DVD and Blu-ray Disk distribution.
Jerome Manzandarini from Manga UK:
the distributor has licensed new shows and will be delivering them throughout the end of this 2011 and the start of 2012. The titles include: Tales of Vesperia on (BD and DVD), Shiki, Strike Witches 2, Naruto Shippuuden’s second movie (BD and DVD). Samurai Girls will be delayed until the early days of next year due to subtitle issues and the 3rd Bleach movie, Fade to Black, will also be released later than the initial statement – somewhere around the second quarter of 2012. Trigun: Badlands Rumble and Mardock Scramble will air in Spring around early March through April. Princess Jellyfish will also be released by the distributor next year, in the Summer.
Andrew Partridge from Kaze UK and Anime on Demand:
UN-GO, Persona 4 and Mirai Nikki are the three big names that will be released by the British company. Other good news from the platform include the fact that Manga Entertainment and Kaze/Anime on Demand are planning a long-lasting and healthy relationship.
Tony Allen from MVM:
Welcome to the NHK! will come out January 9, 2012. Rights over Fruits Basket (new release to come out February 6, 2012) and Kiddy Grade (new release to come out March 5, 2012) are regained.
