It’s been an exciting and insanely busy weekend at this years May London Comic Con Expo and with the three major anime distributors (Manga UK, MVM and Anime Limited) opting to announce their new titles in various different ways we’ve decided to gather all the information into one ‘easy’ to read spot.

  • Blood Lad (Format TBC)
  • Pshyic School Wars (Format TBC)
  • Full Metal Panic (DVD & Blu-ray)
  • Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid (DVD & Blu-ray)
  • Full Metal Panic: FUMOFFU (DVD & Blu-ray)
  • Terror of Resonance (Format TBC)
  • Wings of Honneamise (DVD & Blu-ray)

  • Kokoro Connect (DVD)
  • Blast of Tempest (Format TBC)

Manga Entertainment:

  • One Piece – Collection 9 to 12 (DVD)
  • The Devil is a Part Timer (Format TBC)
  • The Princess and the Pilot (Format TBC)

All of Manga Entertainment’s UK new announcements were made on Saturday, during their own panel, however MVM and Anime Limited announced their new titles via the traditional industry panel on Sunday and finally to top it all off Anime Limited resorted to announcing a slew of new titles via their website and social media channels, so as you can see announcements of new releases have been thick, fast and all over the place during the weeked.

In addition to the content listed above, most of which will see a UK release by the end of the year, Manga UK shared more details surrounding the upcoming UK DVD & Blu-ray release of Attack on Titan (including an English Dubbed Clip) and their UK Exclusive Blu-ray steelbook release of Ghost in The Shell, both of which will be released in September. MVM Entertainment also confirmed that Bodacious Space Pirates IS coming to Blu-ray as a complete series boxset, a fact which we pointed out in Zavvi’s listings earlier in the month.

It’s expected that each of the above titles, excluding One Piece – Collection 9 to 12 and Hellsing Ultimate, will be released later this year but more ‘confirmed’ release details will be revealed in the coming months.
