The announcements made at this May’s London MCM Comic Con by the companies were big, bold and surprising; but lets not forget there are plenty of titles which have already been announced but were not mentioned during the weekend. For example Manga UK have Dragon Ball Z Kai (Season 1 and 2) coming out on Blu-ray and DVD by September; while Animatsu have The Comic Artist & His Assistants Complete Series which is also due out in Setepmber on both DVD and Blu-ray.

Either way; the UK Anime Industry is definately getting bigger and better – so there is plenty to look forward to within the next half of the year; and judging from MVM Entertainments 2016 line-up there is plenty to look forward to next year as well.
