Multiple FUNimation Home Video Releases Delayed; Including Fairy Tail


FUNimation’s presence in the UK Anime market continues to be a dawdling one as following on from last week’s news that Gonna Be The Twin Tail!! would be delayed until an unspecified date FUNimation have now revealed, via their UK Distribution partners Anime Limited, that both Fairy Tail and No-Rin will also receive a delay.

Although Anime Limited have not provided any ‘tentative’ release date in their latest newswire blog post a number of online retailers, specifically Amazon UK, have begun to list potential release dates for these titles. Specifically Gonna Be The Twin Tail!! is listed as 22nd August 2016 (although this is most likely incorrect), Fairy Tail – Part 10 is listed as 7th November 2016 (which sounds about right) while No-Rin is listed for the 22nd August 2016 which also seems abit optimistic.

We noted last week about the delay to Gonna Be The Twin-Tail!!, unfortunately the delay in certification has meant this will now likely not be arriving until the end of August at the earliest. As we mentioned last week, once we have a new locked in date we’ll be sure to make it known.

When it comes to Fairy Tail Part 10 and No-Rin, we’re working the basis that neither will be arriving before September. Chances are by the time you’re reading this dates may have started shifted with retailer listings. Please note that these new dates being listed are NOT final, they are simply placeholders. Once we have the new locked in dates we’ll be sure to make them known ASAP. We’re sorry for the delay in all three of these.

Basically; Gonna Be The Twin Tail!! will be the next FUNimation title to be released; with Fairy Tail – Part 10 and No-Rin to follow shortly after, but when exactly remains to be seen. In terms of why these titles have been delayed then it is due to BBFC classification taking longer than expected. In any event we won’t be seeing any FUNimation titles for quite some time.
