anime-limited-panel-may-mcm16

At this month’s MCM London Comic Con event Anime Limited opted to break-tradition and announce their new anime licenses via a board at their booth; an idea which seemed fun but caused confusion and disappointment to those attending the panels, such as ourselves.

The biggest announcement of the weekend was the unveiling of the Fullmetal Alchemist Ultimate Edition Blu-ray set; a set which will contain the entire series (51 episodes) remastered in High Definition with English and Japanese audio along with some artcards, a book and special packaging – a packaging design which sees the Gate of Truth holding the collection.

As always details are still yet to be confirmed, such as format and release window, but the following titles will be making their way to the UK in the near future. Read more of this post

Animatsu and MangaUK Industry Panel Announcements from MCM London Comic Con May 2016

animatsu-mangauk-mcm-may2016-panel

It seems Animatsu and Manga Entertainment UK were ‘slumming it’ in the Bronze Theatre at the MCM London Comic Con this month as not only was a table not provided for them but the audio equipment didn’t seem to work either; which resulted in not many ‘cheers’ from the crowd despite some interesting announcements being made; including the confirmation that Digimon will be making it’s return to the UK on DVD.

Ignoring the sound quality issues Fraser, Andrew and Jerome provided a solid presentation with a line-up of new announcements accompanied with trailers (all of which you shall see in our video of the panel). Unfortunately however not all licenses were announced and nor were all of the details revealed; so expect more information and announcements from MangaUK and Animatsu Entertainment in the coming weeks! For the time being at least you can check out the panel below in our video. Read more of this post

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin Panel from MCM London Comic Con May 2016

One of the highlights of the MCM London Comic Con May 2016 was that SUNRISE, and Mobile Suit Gundam: The Oirigin, Producer Osamu Taniguchi and Mechanical Designer for SUNRISE Mika Akitaka would be the anime guest of honour and be hosting their own panel at the event.

This panel, which saw the European Premiere of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Oirigin – Episode III take place along, also featured an hour-long-segment which saw both Osamu Taniguchi and Mika Akitaka provide insight into the world of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin, the process of creating the animation itself and what the future has in-store for the Origin series. For Gundam fans, such as myself, it was an insightful look into the world of one of the oldest anime franchises to date and if you somehow managed to miss this panel you can see it all (excluding the film of course) in our video below.
