MVM Entertainment Delays Girls Und Panzer, Monster Musume, Norn9 and GATE

In some rather unexpected news MVM Entertainment have announced through social media that a selection of their upcoming releases have been delayed. Unfortunately the original post on Twitter did not mention which titles were affected; but after digging around the MVM Entertainment owned store, known as Anime-On-Line, we’ve discovered that the titles affected by this delay include DVD releases of Girls Und Panzer Der Film & Norn9 as well as the collector’s edition Blu-ray & DVD Combo Pack release of Monster Musume in addition to titles scheduled for November release such as GATE, Tenchi Muyo and Girls Und Panzer: The Real Anzio Battle.

In this case Monster Musume’s Collectors Edition Blu-ray & DVD Combo Pack was scheduled to be released on the 30th October 2017 but it has now been moved to the 11th December 2017. The DVD Release of Girls Und Panzer Der Film, which was due for release on the 23rd October 2017, and Norn9 – The Complete Collection, which was due for release on the 16th October 2017, have both been moved to the 20th November 2017. Blu-ray variations of Girls Und Panzer Der Film & Norn9 – The Complete Collection will continue to be released on the original release dates.

Its currently unclear what has caused this delay (most likely some sort of issue during production) but it seemingly only affects the DVD versions of the shows – which is good news for those who want the High Definition experience (with the exception of Monster Musume due to it being a Collector’s Edition Combo Pack).

In addition to the titles mentioned above MVM Entertainment have also pushed back titles that were previously scheduled for a November 2017 release into next year. In this case GATE, which was expected to be released on the 13th November 2017 as a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray & DVD Combo Pack, has been moved to the 8th January 2018, Matoi The Sacred Slayer – Complete Collection, which was due for release on the 20th November 2017 on DVD & Blu-ray, has been moved to the 15th January 2018 and Tenchi Muyo OVA Collection (as an individual DVD & Blu-ray release) has been moved from the 11th December 2017 to a 5th February 2018 release date.  Minor release date alterations include Girls Und Panzer: The Real Anzio Battle which has shifted from the 6th November 2017 to the 20th November 2017.

As a result of these changes the current release schedule for MVM Entertaiment now looks like this:

16th October 2017:

  • Norn9 – Complete Collection (Blu-ray)
  • Girls Und Panzer Der Film (Blu-ray)

20th November 2017:

  • Girls Und Panzer Der Film (DVD)
  • Girls und Panzer: This is the Real Anzio Battle (Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack)
  • Norn9 – Complete Collection (DVD)

27th November 2017:

  • Log Horizon – Season 1 & 2 Collection (Blu-ray)

4th December 2017:

  • Fruits Basket – Complete Series (Collector’s Edition Blu-ray)

11th December 2017:

8th January 2018:

15th January 2018:

5th February 2018:

As per usual these are tentative release dates and are subject to change; but it does give us an idea of what to expect from future anime titles by MVM Entertainment.
