Kill_la_Kill_Ep1_04

It seems like All The Anime can’t catch a break lately, as now their Blu-ray Release of Kill-La-Kill – Part 1 has been pushed back till the 1st December 2014 due to an desynchronisation issue with the English Audio.

Basically the English Dub track for Episode 4 goes out of sync, something which makes the entire episode difficult to watch due to sound effects and voices being later than they should. Interestingly this ‘error’ is only apparent on the Blu-ray version of the set and as such the DVD version is still on course for its 3rd November 2014 launch day, as Andrew from Anime Limited / All The Anime explains: Read more of this post

It seem’s being an anime distributor is never a dull moment, as now Anime Limited is following in the trend’s of Kaze by delaying ‘another’ upcoming product, except this time there is good reason to. Speaking on the official Anime Limited Facebook account it has been confirmed that their DVD release of Outlaw Star has been delayed to an undisclosed release date.

Outlaw Star News: Many of you have been asking us ‘What is the deal with Outlaw Star? Is it still coming out?’ To which I say a firm: Definitely! We have, however, run into some issues when we QC’d the series.

Initially scheduled for release later this month, Anime Limited’s Re-mastered DVD release of Outlaw Star has been delayed yet again due to continuing audio issues, an issue which was noticed awhile ago but the company is waiting for a fix to be implemented, as the facebook post continues to explain.

Cowboy Bebop – Box 2 Receives Slight Delay Due to Technical Glitch

cowboy_bebop_faye_smash_delay

Anime Limited has today took to Facebook to confirm that the upcoming Blu-ray release of Cowboy Bebop – Box 2, along with the Complete Series DVD Set), has received a slight delay due to a technical glitch that has been spotted.

According to Anime Limited the delay is so that a “another video capture glitch” could be fixed, what exactly this means i’m not entirely sure, but because of this the release has been given a new ‘temporary’ release date on online retailers with a new ‘confirmed’ release date expected to be announced later in the month.

A few folks have messaged us as the date for Cowboy Bebop BD Part 2 and DVD Complete Collection had changed on Amazon – this is a temporary date set because we had to shift the release date a few weeks due to finding another video capture glitch we wanted to fix.

We’ll actually have the final masters no later than next week so expect a release actually in October – so a couple of weeks delay max to bring you the best quality product. Not December!

It seems Anime Limited truly cares about their products, and who can blame them especially after the recent issues with Kaze produced releases. Either way Anime Limited hopes to have Cowboy Bebop – Box 2 (Blu-ray) as well as the Complete Series Set (DVD) out during October 2013, with more updates expected to follow in the coming weeks.

As it stands the issue will not affect everyone, but MVM Entertainment have issued this statement just incase someone does encounter a problem with their release of Bakemonogatari – Part 1.

“Unfortunately our manufacturers packed the wrong discs (Shana) into the Bakemonogatari Pt1 box.

This was spotted a week before release date but some stock had already shipped to major mail order retailers.

Although these retailers have been advised of a product recall some units may have shipped to customers.

Any customer receiving this product should seek a refund from their retailer.

Bakemononogatari Pt 1 will now be released on 1st July with new barcode and catalogue number (MVD2324).

This is the only way to ensure bad stock does not get mixed with new good stock.

This only effects mail order retailers as bad stock was stopped in time before going to high street stores such as HMV.

Apologies for any inconvenience. This has been something of a nightmare for us too.”

that some Anime fans may have experienced.

According to rumours people who ordered

Basically if you have ordered Bakemonogatari – Part 1 from an online retailer, such as Amazon or Sainsbury’s Entertainment, then you should check to make sure the correct discs are inside. If you do discover that your Bakemonogatari – Part 1 has the incorrect disc’s inside then you should return it to the retailer as soon as possible.

Bakemonogatari – Part 1 is now available on DVD from local and online retailers, however some retailers may not receive the correct release until the 1st July 2013.
