As part of it’s weekly newswire Anime Limited have revealed that a handful of their Q1 2016 releases have received minor delays; with both Mobile Suit Gundam – Part 2 and Noein – The Complete Series collection reciving the biggest set-backs.
To start with Mobile Suit Gundam – Part 2, which was previously confirmed for a 25th January 2016 release after it’s Q4 2015 was delayed, will now be released on the 8th February 2016. The reason for the delay is due to production of the bonus booklet, which is only limited to 1000 units, taking longer than expected and being made out of a stronger material than previously designed.
Meanwhile the Complete Series Collection of Noein: To Your Other Self, which has been scheduled for a January 2016 release, has had it’s date altered to a To Be Confirmed date this year. Considering nothing has been mentioned since it’s announcement last year then it comes as no surprise to see this title delayed; but in actuality the real cause for the delay is due to approvals taking longer than initially expected.
The final release date alteration comes in the form of the cinematic anime film Fuse: Memoirs of the Hunter Girl which has also been moved to a To Be Confirmed date this year. The reason for this particular title being delayed is due to getting the discs authored (made) correctly but as it stands all previously shown artwork has been confirmed and signed off by the Japanese licensor.
Of course it wasn’t all bad news as Anime Limited went on to confirm release dates for Sword Art Online II – Part 3, Miss Hokusai and the standard edition of Kill La Kill – Part 1. For starters Sword Artr Online II – Part 3, which will contain the entire Calibur arc and two episodes from the Mother Rosario, will be released on the 8th March 2016; meanwhile Miss Hokusai will be released on the 28th March 2016 after being incorrectly listed as the 31st March 2016. Finally The standard edition of Kill La Kill – Part 1 will be available from the 16th March 2016.
As always theres bad news and good news with the weekly Anime Limited newswire; but at least we’ve been informed of what to look out for dring the month of March.
