UK Release of Turn A Gundam Delayed Indefinitely

As part of the weekly Anime Limited newswire, and previously mentioned in a recent podcast; the UK Anime Distributor have decided to indefinitely delay the release of Turn A Gundam, a series which was previously announced for a UK DVD Release at last years October London MCM Comic Con.
The reason? Well fans have asked for a Blu-ray release and now Anime Limited are discussing with Sunrise, the japanese licsensor for the franchise, to make this happen; but obviously no guarantee’s can be made; as Andrew Partridge, President of Anime Limited, explained in the recent podcast:
“Turn A Gundam is currently, not cancelled, but we are delaying it significantly because we are arguing the point that Blu-ray would be really great for it. But that hinges on a few things because Sunrise are kind of looking at things in a more global strategy for English speaking [territories]. So if we do it, it would have to be done in conjunction with other territories as well. It’s one we care about and we’ve heard what you guys have said so we’re going to respect that as best we can.”
For the time being at least the only Gundam releases we can expect anytime soon are Mobile Suit Gundam – Part 2, which is being released on the 8th February 2016, Mobile Suit Gundam: Reconguista in G, which is being released later this year. Turn A Gundam is still in the pipline; but it may be awhile before we see it on our shelves.
