MVM Entertainment Announcements at London MCM Comic Con May 2015
24/05/2015 3 Comments
With Animatsu, Anime Limited and Manga Entertainment UK opting to announce their new titles through Industry Panels throughout the Comic Con weekend MVM Entertainment UK opted to take a different approach and announce their new titles through social media – which ultimately led to some confusion and disappointment.
As it stands MVM Entertainment only have three anime titles heading out for the Q3, and potentially Q4, release window; however amongst (we assume) some criticism the distributor announced that they had signed another seventeen titles for release next year – which is quite an impressive amount.
To start with MVM Entertainment have confirmed that they will be releasing Love Live! – Season 1 on DVD and Blu-ray; interestingly enough the DVD will be released in July 2015 (as a subtitle only title) while the Blu-ray, which will feature an English dub, will come out next year. The second title is Captain Earth which is being released in two part instalments on both DVD and Blu-ray in July and September respectfully. Videogame based anime show Amnesia has also been licensed for a DVD and Blu-ray release with the series being available in early July. Mecha-Styled fans are also being catered for as Muv-Luv Alternate Total Eclipse will be released in two parts (August and September) on both DVD and Blu-ray; meanwhile the final announcement of the weekend was for Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works; however no release window was mentioned.
So to Sum Up:
- Amnesia (DVD and Blu-ray in July 2015)
- Captain Earth (DVD and Blu-ray in July 2015)
- Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works (TBC)
- Love Live! Season 1 (Subbed DVD in July, Blu-ray with English Dub in 2016)
- Muv-Luv Alternate Total Eclipse (DVD & Blu-ray; Part 1 in August, Part 2 in September)
Along with the Q3/ Q4 announcements MVM Entertainment confirmed that they had signed the following titles; with them all due for release next year:
- Busou Shinki
- Flowers of Evil
- Hidamari Sketch Season 1
- Kamisama Kiss Season 2
- Kampfer/Kampfer Fur Die Liebe
- Kill Me Baby
- Love, Election Chocolate
- Love live Season 2
- Outbreak Company
- Rosen Maiden-Zuruckspulen
- Samurai Harem
- So I Can’t Play H
As it stands MVM Entertainment have not confirmed which format these titles will be released onto; but 2016 looks like a busy year for MVM – which is ironic considering we are only ‘just’ halfway into the year of 2015.
