Multiple Kaze Releases Delayed Until September

We have just been informed that multiple Kaze UK releases, most of which are expected to be released next week, have now been delayed until September 2013.

Titles affected include Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan – Season 1 Part 2, Bleach Complete Series 11 and Tiger & Bunny – Part 4, each of which were being released into the UK by Kaze via Manga Entertainment UK thus making the pile of delays even larger to Kaze’s already “impressive” delay streak.

According to the information we received the delay is due to stock not being able to reach the suppliers in time, so consequently the delays are rather minimal. Here is a rundown of the new release dates:

2nd September 2013:

Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan – Season 1 Part 2
Tiger & Bunny –  Part 4

11th September 2013:

Bleach Complete Series 11

It’s worth noting that while the discs / artwork have the Manga Entertainment UK logo on them they have no involved with the production, supplement (etc) as this is all sorted via Kaze’s end, which just recently has been rather appalling.

Kaze Delay’s UK Release of Bleach Series 11 and Pengiundrum Box 2


It seem’s like a bad week for Manga Entertainment UK as not only has Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works suffered a month long delay (as mentioned earlier in the week) but now Kaze’s UK release of Bleach Series 11 and Penguindrum Box 2, both of which are distributed into the UK via Manga Entertainment UK, are now also suffering delays.

Both Bleach – Series 11 and Penguindrum Box 2 were originally intended to be launched next month, however due to an undisclosed reason both releases have now been delayed until September (Bleach) and October (Penguin Drum).

Hi everyone. Today we have been informed by Kaze of two release date amendments.
Bleach Complete Series 11 will now be released on 2nd September and Penguindrum Part 2 will now be released on 7th October.

For those unaware, Manga Entertainment UK distributes a wide variety of titles from Kaze in the UK.

Both of these titles are available to pre-order now.

The following date amendments will be updated on online retailer listings shortly. ^JG

So to re-cap that’s three Manga distributed titles delayed within less than a week, but you have to keep in mind that, unlike Fate/Stay Night, Manga UK have no involvement with the production of Bleach or Penguin Drum as these are both produced by Kaze and then are distributed to suppliers via Manga UK.

Either way Bleach Series 11 will now be released on the 2nd September 2013 while Penguindrum Box 2 will be released on the 7th October 2013, both of which will only be available on DVD.
