During the course of the weekend AnimEigo, the company which previously released Bubblegum Crisis onto Blu-ray a few years back, launched a Kickstarter campaign for Sonoda Ken’ichi”s fast-paced action OVA film Riding Bean and within 24 hours the campaign was successfully funded.

The concept of the Kickstarter campaign, much like the previously released Bubblegum Crisis Kickstarter, was to secure funds to release a Blu-ray Edition of Riding Bean with the film itself in crisp 1080p quality, English and Japanese with English subtitles and a selection of bonus on-disc content. AnimEigo were hoping to secure $30,000 within the 30 day period of the campaign but at the time of writing the company has secured over $78k and shows no sign of stopping; all of which can be seen on the Kickstarter campaign page.

The Disappointing Truth: Full Metal Panic – Ultimate Edition

fullmetalpanic-ultimate-edition-front-bluray-box

Due for release on the 7th December 2015 the UK Blu-ray debut of the entire Full Metal Panic franchise is something to get quite excited for if you are a fan of the franchise; however this excitement also comes at a great cost… and I’m not referring to its three digit retail price tag.

For those who attended the London MCM Comic Con in October advanced copies of the set, known as the Ultimate Edition, were available for purchase and considering its relatively competitive £90 price tag it had (for reference its £110 on Amazon UK) I opted to pick-one-up and explore its collectable goodness; unfortunately however what happened next came as a bit of a disappointment; and i apologise in advance if it sounds like i’m nagging.

Ultimate Edition of Patema Inverted Delayed By One Week for Kickstarter Backers

patema_inverted_screenshot3

It seems Anime Limited’s Patema Inverted Kickstarter project is becoming just as ‘botched’ as the rest of their anime releases; as now the Ultimate Edition has received a week delay.

As explained in a recent Kickstarter Update the production company (printers) for this release forgot to include the O-Card with the Ulitmate Edition of Patema Inverted and, as a result, the release has been delayed so that the O-Card can be included and shipped to all backers.

– Printers helpfully forgot about an O-Card for the UK, so we’re just waiting on those to be delivered. This means alas the Ultimate will ship one week later for backers now (week of December 1st) and the retail date on Amazon for it will be December 14th. This is why we don’t have any pictures to share yet for the Ultimate either (and we’re chomping our own hands off over it).

– Standard edition is now in the warehouse so will go out to backers of that tier next week as planned still, retail date being December 1st
