Manga UK Gives Mardock Scramble: The Third Exhaust an August Release Date


If you are eagerly awaiting some news regarding the UK Blu-ray and DVD Release of Mardock Scramble: The Third Exhaust then you won’t have to wait much longer, as Manga Entertainment UK have revealed that they hope to have the film released by the 4th August 2014 – although this ‘could’ always change.

Mardock Scramble: The Third Exhaust was initally due to arrive on the 16th June 2014; however for an undisclosed reason the release was pushed back until further notice. What makes this ‘delay’ interesting is that anime sites, such as ourselves, already received the finalised product for review so we can only assume that the delay was either to do with the packaging and distribution of the stock or something more sinister such as Japanese License holders putting a hold on the UK release.

Of course we may never know the ‘real’ answer, but what we do know is that Manga Entertainment UK, via Kaze, are looking to release Mardock Scramble: The Third Exhaust on the 4th August 2014 on both Blu-ray and DVD.
