Taking to their weekly newswire Anime Limited have announced that a selection of upcoming releases have been delayed; specifically Ping Pong: The Animation, Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo and Expelled from Paradise; but some good news came about in the form of confirmed release dates for Mobile Suit Gundam – Part 2 and Sword Art Online II.
Starting with the delays Ping Pong: The Animation, which has been in the works at Anime Limited for several months, has been moved to a TBC (To-Be-Confirmed) date due to unforseen production issues with an item they wanted to include with their collectors edition release. Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo and Expelled from Paradise on the otherhand have simply had their release dates shifted with Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo now being scheduled for the 8th March 2016 and Expelled from Paradise being released sometime in March.
Of course it’s not all doom and gloom; as Anime Limited went on to reveal that Mobile Suit Gundam – Part 2 will be released on the 25th January 2016. Further release date confirmations were that both Sword Art Online II – Part 3 and Sword Art Online II – Part 4 will be released during the first two quarters of 2016 and that the Shinkai Twin Pack should also see a release during the same timeframe.
Interestingly enough Anime Limited went on to further explain release plans for both Assassination Classroom and Aldnoah.Zero; each of which are expected to be release within the next few months of 2016. Both sets will be released as half-season-sets which each set featuring 11-13 episodes.
As always more details surrounding these releases will be revealed in due time.
