Jeremy Graves To Step-Down as Community Liason for Manga Entertainment UK

If you are a fan of the ‘big friendly giant’ Jeremy Graves, who is the current Community Liason for Manga Entertainment UK, then prepare for some disappointing news as earlier today Jeremy announced through his personal instagram account that will be stepping-down from his current position to start an exciting new oppitunity.
Well now’s as good as time as any to announce that I’m leaving my current job next week (with my last day being Friday 12th Dec.) as I embark on a exciting opportunity that’s been offered to me.
I want to give a massive thanks to @jeromemazandarani, @ajhewson, Almar and Lisa for the opportunities they’ve provided over the past few years. I’ve done many things I never thought I’d ever have a chance of doing and for that I’m eternally grateful.
(Out of respect to my current employer I won’t reveal what lies ahead for me just yet, but it’s going to be an exciting change and one I can’t wait to get started on.)
It’s not known what this ‘exciting new position‘ is, but we do have a few ideas of what it could be; anyway we wish him all the best in his new upcoming role.
For those unfamiliar with Jeremy Graves then he has been the guy who handled all of Manga Entertainment UK’s social media channels and handled podcast recordings. Jeremy also did a variety of unboxing videos, all of which are currently available on Manga UK’s Youtube Channel, and he has even presented a few panels over the past few years at MCM Expos. Put simply Jeremy Graves was considered a figurehead and he will be missed by the Manga UK Community.
It’s been a relatively strange couple of weeks for the Manga Entertainment, as not only have their recent releases been woeful but key figureheads of the company, such as Jerome Mazandarani and Andrew Hewson, left to form Animatsu andeven more recently a selection of Blu-ray announcements have been reverted to DVD only. Things only seem to becoming worse for the UK Anime Distributor who were once called the ‘best in the business’ and with Jeremy Graves stepping down from the position you could call it the icing on the cake.
No-one currently knows what the future holds for Manga Entertainment UK; but things are quickly changing within the company and it seems that things are only going to get worse before they get better.
