Anime Limited Announces Screen Anime Streaming Service for UK

In a rather unique, but especially surprising, announcement Anime Limited (otherwise known as All The Anime) have today announced the birth of a digital streaming platform known as Screen Anime, with the idea of bringing the joys of ‘anime on the big screen’ at home. through a digital streaming platform.

Launching on the 25th May 2020, which coincidentally is also a bank holiday Monday in the UK, and priced at £3.98 per month (with a yearly subscription being £39.98), anime fans will be able to stream a selection of titles onto compatible devices through the Screen Anime website and, when released, relevant apps. At the time of writing a full schedule of what is expected to be included has yet to be announced but Anime Limited have confirmed that PROMARE, Penguin Highway, Patema Inverted and Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honnemaise will be available to stream at launch with each film also containing a ‘bonus feature’ as well. Anime TV shows will also be available to stream but details have not yet been specified other than that one show will be available at launch.

Confirmed titles:

  • Patema Inverted [Bonus = Alternate angles]
  • Penguin Highway [Bonus = Interview with Tomihiko Morimi]
  • PROMARE [Bonus = Lio’s Side Story]
  • Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honnemaise [BONUS = TO BE CONFIRMED]

Screen Anime is being promoted as a digital anime film festival, although it will seemingly be available all year-round and updated with content, as Andrew Partridge, CEO of Anime Limited explains:

“Ever since founding the annual Scotland Loves Anime Film Festival, showcasing the best in theatrical anime has been a passion for me but how to keep doing that during this ongoing global situation we find ourselves in? The answer was to take the film festival experience online and at the same time address a gap we recognise from fan feedback in how theatrical anime is released to date. There are so many ideas we are excited at bringing to folks through Screen Anime over the coming months and I for one can’t wait to talk about them!”

What is also interesting is that Screen Anime will be more than a ‘digital platform service’ as those who purchase the yearly pass, known Festival Pass, will also receive a physical membership card that can unlock exclusive benefits like discounts on Anime Limited’s online store and at future events.

All of the films available on the service are available on Blu-Ray and DVD in the UK via Anime Limited and it is expected that the TV shows being planned for the service will also be titles released peviously by the company. Additional details for Screen Anime can be found on the official website.
