Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2199, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime and Wise Mans Grandchild Release Dates Changed


As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause disruption around the world Manga Entertainment UK have today announced that titles previously planned for a May 2020 release, such as Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2199, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime – Seaon 1 Part 2 and Wise Man’s Grandchild, have now been moved to between May and June 2020.

The reason for this delay, as with any physical product expected to be released during the next few weeks, is due to COVID-19 causing disruption with the production and distribution of physical retail products. Furthermore although online retailers are still operating normally most of them are operating at limited capacities with less stock being received and dispatched on a daily basis. Amazon UK for instance is focusing on essential items with other products, such as Blu-Rays, Games and Books, being held back by up to a week depending on the workflow.

The current dates for these titles are as follows:

  • Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2199 – Expected 1st June 2020 (Previously 11th May 2020)
  • That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime – Season 1 Part 2 – Expected 25th May 2020 (Previously 11th May 2020)
  • Wise Mans Grandchild – Expected 18th May 2020 (Previously 11th May 2020)

Depending on the status of COVID-19, and the UK lockdown, it is possible that the release date for these products will change again – but its nice of Manga Entertainment UK to keep its followers informed of the updated release dates through the official website.
