17/02/2017 Leave a comment
It’s always surprising when an anime distributor opts to announce a handful of new titles outside of a Comic-Con event; but that’s exactly whats happened as after Manga UK’s announcement of Yo-Kai! Watch UK release competitor Anime Limited have announced that they will be releasing Tokyo Ghoul OVA’s, Sword of the Stranger and Dragon Dentist at some point within the UK.
All three announcements were made as individual blog posts on the Anime Limited website; of which additional details for each title were confirmed – each of which we will explain below:
Tokyo Ghoul OVA’s:
Tokyo Ghoul received two OVA’s, known as Jack and Pinto, and bridge the gap between the events of Season 1 and Season 2 (also known as Root A) and Anime Limited will be releasing them as a standard DVD and Blu-ray release during May 2017.
Unlike the actual TV Anime Series, which is presented in both English & Japanese, these OVA’s will be presented in Japanese with English Subtitles only as an English Dub has not been produced and it’s unlikely that a dub will be produced anytime soon.
Sword of the Stranger:
Originally released by BEEZ Entertainment on DVD several years ago, and then later re-released on Blu-ray via Bandai Entertainment and homeaise, Anime Limited have today announced that they will be releasing the film as a Collector’s Edition release during June 2017.
Specific details about this release, such as whether it will be a Blu-ray and DVD Combo pack or individual formats and what type of content will be included in the box, will be confirmed in due course but Anime Limited have confirmed that it will feature both English and Japanese audio tracks with English subtitles.
The Dragon Dentist:
The final announcement of the day comes in the form of a simulcast streaming partnership with Crunchyroll for The Dragon Dentist which is a brand new anime series. This partnership will also see the series released on to Home Video (formats to be confirmed) after the series has finished broadcasting. Once again specific details are vague; but we will know more in the coming months (or years).
So; that’s three brand new anime licenses within a single day – two of which we will see in the coming months while the remainder will be released at some point in the distant future. Exciting times indeed.
