When Manga Entertainment UK announced that they had the distribution rights to Digimon Adventure Tri, specifically Movie 1, last year it was met with surprise and joy; however unfortunately that excitement quickly died down when the distributor delayed the title until early 2017 with the reasoning that they wanted to release the film with it’s newly produced English Dub (as previously it was going to be a subtitle only release). Well today that disappointment continues as now the film won’t be released until the 22nd May 2017. Read more of this post

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
