Anime Limited Announces UK Cinema Plans & New Titles from MCM London Comic Con May 2017

As per usual Anime Limited, otherwise known as All The Anime, were once again out in full force at this years May MCM lond Comic Con and although they had three panels, one of which being the Anime Gust of Honor with Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry director Tatsuma Minamikawa & Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry producer Yohei Ito, however despite their dominate appearence at the event the UK anime distributor only made a handful of new announcements during their panels with most announcements relating to cinema releases rather than home video releases.

In short; Anime Limited opted to split their announcements in to two different panels with the first panel, which took place on Friday 26th May 2017, focusing on anime films being released in cinemas later this year while the second panel, which took place on Sunday 28th May 2017, focus on some new home video license announcements. Both panels also featured an extensive selection of Q&A; but you can check them both out in our videos below.

Friday 26th May 2017 – Anime Limited Panel 1:

The panel that was hosted on Friday saw Marketing Executive Jeremy Graves discuss Anime Limited’s future plans for anime films in the cinema with at least one new film being released per month. Films confirmed for a cinematic showing include an IMAX version of Your Name in August as well as Project Itoh’s third stand-a-lone film Genocidal Organ in July; but alas this is only a small example of the six films announced at the panel. Although Jeremy discussed these films in more detail throughout the panel the news of each film was posted up on the Anime Limited booth (as you may have seen on our Twitter feed) before the panel itself.

2017 Film Line-Up:

  • 12th July – Genocidal Organ
  • 16th August – Napping Princess
  • 23rd August – Your Name (IMAX screenings)
  • 20th September – The Night is Short Walk On, Girl
  • 31st October – Perfect Blue
  • 6th December – Lu Over the Wall

Sunday 28th May 2017 – Anime Limited Panel 2:

The panel that was hosted on Sunday once again saw Marketing Executive Jeremy Graves discuss Anime Limited’s future plans and in this case the focus was on upcoming home video releases; but namely the new license announcements of Hyouka and Wolf’s Rain – both of which would be getting a Blu-ray release later this year. Hyouka will be released in two parts while Wolf’s Rain will be released as a complete series collection.

The biggest surprise however was confirmation that Anime Limited will be putting a selection of anime, starting with Eureka Seven and Tokyo Ghoul, on to UK TV via the Satelite channel Viceland. Details are still unconfirmed but it is expected the shows will be shown in English only and will most likely be placed on a late-night timeslot.

Announcements:

  • Hyouka – Part One & Part 2 (Blu-ray & DVD)
  • Wolf’s Rain – Complete Series (Blu-ray)
  • Anime on TV (via Viceland starting with Eureka Seven & Tokyo Shoul)

Further details surrounding the titles announced at the panels will be confirmed in the coming months; but for the time being at least we have both home video and cinema releases to look forward to.
