This Corner of the World screen

When Animatsu Entertainment first burst open into the UK Distributor scene last year one of their goals was to become a worldwide distributor for numerous products; and today that goal is one step to reality as today the distributor have announced that they have licensed Sunao Katabuchi’s animated feature ‘In This Corner of the World’ for global distribution.

This distribution license means that Animatsu Entertainment will be able to distribute the film freely across all countires excluding Japan and Asian countries. What’s quite interesting about this announcement, excluding the global distribution agreement of course, is that this film will not have it’s Japanese premiere until later this year and as such it may be awhile before we (in the UK) even get to see it.

Earlier in the month Anime Limited announced it had acquired the UK streaming rights for Castle Town Dandelion and Aoharu x Kikanju, with both shows being stream on Viewster; well today that partnership continues as the UK Anime Distributor has today announced that both they have licensed both GANGSTA and Chaos Dragon for UK Simulcast streaming on viewster.

GANGSTA: In the crime-ridden, mafia-governed city of Ergastulum, Worick and Nicolas are two “handymen” known as “Benriya” who would take any dirty job from either police or mafia — for a good price. After an assignment from police the two met and later joined by Alex, a former prostitute who got interested in the mysterious background of the team, in particular of Nicolas’ abilities.

Chaos Dragon: In the year 3015, the country of Nil Kamui is entwined in a never-ending war between neighbouring countries Dontania and Kouran. Nil Kamui is caught in the middle of this struggle after having lost its independence when it’s guardian god known as Red Dragon went of out control and their monarchs passing away in the tragedy. But now to put an end to the rampage of the Red Dragon, a small group of unlikely allies band together to bring peace and restore order back to the world.

That’s not all either; as Anime Limited have also confirmed that both titles will receive a UK Home Video release, most likely DVD and Blu-ray, sometime in 2016 – with further details to be confirmed in due time. For the time being at least these shows will appear on a weekly basis via Viewster; and better yet Viewster is a FREE (and legal) streaming service; so there is no excuse not to give these shows a watch.
