MangaUK Announce Release Date Amendments

In some rather disappointing news UK Anime Distributor Manga Entertainment UK have announced through social media that a selection of their upcoming titles have been delayed until next year; with the Hosoda Collection titles pushed back until the end of November.

In this case Soul Eater, Sakamoto & Hello! Kinmoza, all of which were due for release during the November and December period of this year, have been pushed back until the 2nd April 2018.

The Hosoda Collection re-releases meanwhile, which includes Wolf Children, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Summer War, have been pushed back to later this year. Specifically Wolf Children will be released on the 13th November 2017, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time will be released on the 27th November 2017 and Summer Wars will be released on the 11th December 2017.

Although Manga Entertainment UK have previously released these films on Blu-Ray and DVD within the UK these ‘Hosoda Collection’ sets will be packaged with new art-sleeves and feature a booklet with information about the film.

The final release date amendment is that Paprika, a film which was originally due for release during late October/early November has now been pushed back to the 13th November 2017.

Naturally it is disappointing news; but at least the titles are still scheduled for release within the UK.
