MangaUK Confirms Delays to Digimon Tri & Death Note

In rather disappointing news UK Anime Distributor Manga Entertainment UK have today confirmed that both Digimon Tri, the latest instalment into the Digimon anime franchise, and the Blu-ray re-release of Detah Note have been delayed due to production issues.
As explained by MangaUK on their social media feeds Digimon Tri has been pushed back due to circumstances beyond their control and as a result it will now be released during March 2017; which is quite an extensive delay. Death Note on the otherhand has been pushed back to the 19th December due to issues discovered with the materials provided; as explained on twitter.
We already expected Death Note to receive a delay, as last week we received notification from Amazon UK that the date had been pushed back, however the delay to Digimon Tri does come as a surprise; especially when everything seemed to be on track.
It’s possible that Digimon Tri needs to be held back so that it can have it’s American (and potentially Australian) release, which is similar to what happened with Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F; but in any event it’s a product we won’t see for quite some time.
