Don’t Worry Nisekoi – Season 1 Part 1 Is Out…. It’s Just Stock is Scarce At The Moment

nisekoi_false_love_screenshot1

If you were expecting to receive, or purchase in-store, Kaze’s release of Nisekoi – Season 1 Part 1 today then you may be interested to know that while the set is ‘available for purchase’ stock is currently limited within the UK.

Its a rather ‘unique’ situation for Manga Entertainment UK; but as explained on Twitter a delay in the delivery of stock means that retailers, such as Baze, Zavvi and HMV, are unable to send out copies for those who pre-ordered the title. It also means that you won’t find the title in-store at your local entertainment retailer either; that is until stock arrives later this week: Read more of this post

nisekoi_false_love_screenshot1

After a few days of speculation the news of ‘further delays’ to two upcoming anime releases has been confirmed; with both KAZE’s Nisekoi: False Love – Season 1 Part 1 and Anime Limited’s Tiger & Bunny: The Rising being pushed back by well-over a month.

Neither company has yet to ‘express’ why these delays have happened, and in regards to Kaze’s release we will probably never know, but its yet again another disappointing time to be an anime fan.

Plot: Welcome to a world where just thinking about a crime is enough to make you guilty. Bad intentions can no longer be hidden, and the police know exactly which tainted minds are about to cross over to the wrong side of the law.

The great equalizer in the war on thugs is the dominator, a futuristic weapon that can read minds and assess the risk that a citizen will turn criminal. Cops work in teams made up of enforcers and inspectors. Enforcers take out the bad guys, Inspectors stop their partners from going rogue, and the all powerful Sibyl System keeps a watchful eye on us all.

Society is paralyzed by its deepest, darkest desires, and trial by jury has been replaced by the wrath of the dominator.

—-NOTE—-

A Limited Edition Complete Series set is also available (but does not include the DVD Version of the series) and Manga Entertainment UK will be releasing the series onto both Blu-ray and DVD later this year.
