Following on from days of speculation that numerous Anime Limited titles, specifically Tiger & Bunny: The Rising and Baccano, had been delayed Anime Limited’s latest Newswire has today confirmed what we already assumed; that they have been delayed.
Starting with Tiger & Bunny: The Rising the film, which is being released as a Collectors Edition Combo Pack and originally scheduled for an earliy 2015 release, is now scheduled for a late June 2015 release date. The reasoning behind this delay has not been mentioned; so we can only assume its something to do with the finalised artwork or disc assets not arriving in time.
Meanwhile Baccano, which was originally scheduled for a mid-2015 release, has now been pushed back all the way to December 2015. Before we get ‘too concerned’ this release date is tentative and as such the release could be brought forward at anytime; but Anime Limited have confirmed that we won’t expect to see it anytime in June. Yet again a reasoning for this delay has not been mentioned so we’ll just have to expect it.
Finally Kill La Kill – Part 3 has been moved from late May-2015 to an early june-2015 release date, in this case the 8th June 2015; once again Anime Limited have not provided an explanation into this delay but we can safely assume its related to the collectors box, which will hold all three volumes of the series, taking longer to produce than usual.
of course its not all doom and gloom as Anime Limited also confirmed that Fate/kaleid liner Prisim Illya, which is a spin-off of the popular Fate/Zero and Fate/Stay Night franchises, will be released as a Collectors Edition Blu-ray sometime after July and more interestingly is that the standard edition release of Durarara! will be available from the 18th May 2015. And finally to round out the good news is that the English dub for Psychic School Wars is currently in progress with a confirmed cast last to be revealed very shortly.
In short; plenty of bad-news and release date alterations going round; but at least there is some good news to be had in the form of ‘some’ anime shows being given estimated release dates.
