Anime Limited To Reconsider Eureka Seven: Hi-Evolution Release Plans; Cancels Wider UK Cinema Release

In some rather interesting news a post on the Anime UK News forum has revealed that Anime Limited’s plan for Eureka Seven: Hi-Evolution to receive a wider cinematic release across the UK has been cancelled.

As of yet Anime Limied have yet to officially announce the cancellation; but the post was made by Andy who is the (relatively) new Marketing Assistant over at Anime Limited.

“We’ll be sticking to the home video release of the film for now, yes, so no wider theatrical plans for the first film (although there’s always the possibility of other festival screenings if an opportunity arises).”

In any event it’s also been reported that Eureka Seven: Hi-Evolution – Movie 1 left attendes unimprssed and confused; with the film itself featuring thirty minutes of newly animated footage mixed with footage from the original TV Anime, of which was shown in its original 4:3 aspect ratio as opposed to a new 16:9 ratio.

The negative response to this film has now led Anime Limited to reconsider its release plans for this film, maybe even future films, and as such the distributor will now focus its attention on home video release plans as opposed to a wider UK cinematic release.
