Industry News: Crunchyroll x Funimation October 2018 Release Slate

Before we go through the list there are a couple notes to point out. Funimation have noted down some delays for Testament of Sister New Devil Burst and Re:ZERO Part 2 from the previous slates (I believe the former is now due for September).

The other note to bring up is that a lot of the new additions listed here have been revealed over at Anime Expo 2018. Never-the-less here's what they have to offer for October.

Industry News: Sentai Filmworks October 2018 Release Slate

Every anime released on Blu-ray this month is getting an English dub! Surprising.


Unboxing [UK]: Mobile Suit Gundam the Origin I-IV: Chronicle of Char and Sayla - Collector's Edition (Blu-ray)

Anime Limited's next step in the Gundam franchise after Gundam ZZ ended up being one of the more recent adaptations with the Origin prequel series.


Unboxing [UK]: Rokka -Braves of the Six Flowers- - Complete Series: Collector's Edition (Blu-ray)

Pony Canyon have been an on-going issue over in the United States in terms of anime releases, but thankfully one of their titles has managed to reach the UK as a cheaper alternative, heck it even has an English dub available exclusively with this release!


Unboxing [UK]: Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- - Part 1: Collector's Edition (Blu-ray)

One of the most popular anime series from 2016 is finally making its way to home video. Both the UK & US were released at the same time so I went for the UK release.

Unboxing [UK]: Animerama: A Thousand & One Nights and Cleopatra - Limited Edition (Blu-ray) [NSFW]

Last year we saw the release of Belladonna of Sadness making its way to the UK on Blu-ray, restored after being lost for many years. This year the remaining films in the Animerama trilogy are back, restored and also available on Blu-ray for the first time from the folks at Third Window Films.

This release is noted as a limited edition with 2000 units available. It is also worth noting that due to the artwork presented this is not safe for work so bare that in mind.

Industry News: Crunchyroll x Funimation September 2018 Release Slate

Funimation brings us another big batch of anime including a new line of re-releases presumably replacing the S.A.V.E. editions called 'Essentials'. Also we have a few fan favourites of 2017 finally making a release.

UPDATE: This release slate has been tweaked due to changes made weeks after its reveal.

Tuesday, 5 June 2018

Unboxing [UK]: Lupin the Third Part IV: The Italian Adventure - Complete Series (Japanese Broadcast Version): Collector's Edition (Blu-ray)

Lupin and his crew make a return to the UK with Part IV, but this release is a unique one thanks to TMS. While Discotek are releasing the English/Italian Broadcast first, Anime Limited will be releasing the Japanese Broadcast Version first.

Unboxing [UK]: Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust - Collector's Edition (BD/DVD)

The first of many titles from Anime Ltd's batch of titles released throughout May & June are slowly cropping up. Of course this particular title was released early for others I ordered it at the last second so I had to wait a bit longer.
