The phrase “How hard can it be?” that Jeremy Clarkson often spoke in the previous generation of Top Gear springs to mind when I read the latest newswire published by Anime Limited as a large portion of Anime Limited’s Q4 release schedule has been pushed back due to delays received; most of which seemingly happen to be delays in approval from the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) which is of course required by UK Law for a product to be released within the UK.
In any event; Anime Limited have confirmed that Assassination Classroom Season 1 Part 2, Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad, FREE -Eternal Summer-, Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam – Part 1, Psycho-Pass: The Movie and The Empire of Corpses have all been hit by delays. Some of the delays, such as Assassination Classroom Season 1 Part 2 and Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad, were due to approval ratings from the BBFC taking longer than expected, where as FREE -Etneral Summer- and Empire of Corpses were hit by production delays.
The new release dates for these titles are as follows:
- Assassination Classroom Season 1 Part 2 – 26th September 2016
- Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad – 12th September 2016
- FREE -Eternal Summer- – 26th September 2016
- Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam – Part 1 – 3st October 2016
- Psycho-Pass: The Movie – 3rd October 2016
- Tokyo Marble Chocolate – 28th November 2016
- The Empire of Corpses – TBA
Fortunately enough this week’s Anime Limited newswire wasn’t all doom and gloom; as the distributor revealed that it would be releasing Mobile Suit Gundam: Reconguista in G as a Complete Series Blu-ray release, whereby previously it would have been two seperate parts; and that this complete series set will follow suite with the previous Mobile Suit Gundam release whereby it featured two amary cases inside a chipboard artbox – all of which looks fantastic. This has currently been scheduled for a 3rd October 2016 release date.
Although Anime Limited have announced these new release dates it goes without saying that they could change; but for the time being at least this is what we can expect from some of the upcoming Q4 titles form Anime Limited.
