Multiple Animatsu & Manga Entertainment Titles Delayed
13/08/2015 1 Comment
UK anime distributors Animatsu and Manga Entertainment have today confirmed that a selection of upcoming titles have been delayed; the good news however is that they have only been pushed back by a short-time-frame (well two of them at least).
To start with the release of Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions, which was due for release on the 24th August 2015, has been pushed back to the 7th September 2015. Elsewhere the highly anticipated release of A Certain Magical Index – Season 1, has been moved to the 14th September 2015 as opposed to being released on the 31st August 2015.
The biggest, and potentially most disappointing, delay however is the upcoming release of Puella Magi Madoka Magica Part 1: Beginnings and Part 2: Eternal; as that now has a new release date of 12th October 2015. In comparison this title was originally announced for release on the 10th August 2015 but was then later altereted to the 7th September; and now fans will have to wait until the 12th October 2015 – a mere two months after its inital announcement date – before being able to get their hands on it.
Ironically the third movie in the Puella Magi Madoka Magica franchise, known as Puella Magi Madoka Magica Part 3: Rebellion, is still on course for its 28th September 2015 release date. Some may criticize this decision; but given Part 1 and Part 2 of Peulla Magi Madoka Magica are just recap movies of the TV Series then its all ok in my book (the tv series is better anyway).
These release date alerations effect all versions (DVD, Blu-ray and Deluxe Edition Blu-ray) of the titles; and so we will have to sit back and wait that little bit longer for some anime goodness.
