Industry News: Aniplex of America ACen 2016 + May 2016 Announcements

This past weekend was the Anime Central 2016 convention and while there was not that much announced for other publishers, Aniplex offered to unveil some new additions to their ever growing catalogue. In addition we also have one more added a couple days after.

Here's the small list of titles Aniplex are planning on releasing over the course of the Summer/Q3 2016 season.

Unboxing [US]: Robotics;Notes - Part 2 (BD/DVD)

It's been 2 years since I picked up the first half of this series. Now I finally bought it after Robert's Anime Corner Store put the item on a clearance sale for $20, due to the upcoming S.A.V.E. release.

Here's a look at the second half of the series.

And yes, Barakamon is finally getting a release.

Here's the list of anime that Funimation have scheduled for the month of August 2016.

Unboxing [US]: Tales of Xillia - Standard Edition (PS3)

So after finally getting around to Tales of Graces f, the next game I wanted to get in the Tales franchise was Xillia. While UK copies are still around I wanted the set to match Graces f as the spines look pretty cool in my opinion. Unfortunately the game, while still available in the US, is not that import friendly on Amazon. Luckily I was able to grab a copy on eBay for a good price (cheaper than Graces f in fact) and best of all, it was from a UK seller so that's a bonus.

Unboxing [US]: Senran Kagura Estival Versus - Endless Summer Edition (Vita) [NSFW]

Okay. This was a bit awkward. I decided to order the game from Video Games Plus, a Canadian store that sells games from Canada. The reason for this was at the time Amazon had locked the set under the Prime wall so I couldn't order it regardless (and the third party sellers don't help either). Now I received my set, but the issue here was that I was sent the PlayStation Vita version instead of the PlayStation 4 version that I ordered. Since I'm from the UK and how long it took to arrive I couldn't be bothered to send it back and after contacting VGP I received a partial refund and points to my account as an apology.

With that said, the set is pretty much identical so I don't blame them for this accident. Anywho I now own Estival Versus. Not what I was expecting but at least I still managed to get the OST, artbook and cards! The set is sort of not safe for work.

Overview [US]: Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus - Let's Get Physical Edition (Vita) [NSFW]

Back in October 2014 I picked up the limited physical edition for Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus on Vita. I've beaten the game and I really enjoyed it, and to my surprise I didn't even show off the set on this blog.

So for this next instalment of Overview, where I cover items that I had already opened up, I'll be showing you guys what this set has to offer. It's worth nothing that this edition is officially out of print so if you find one at a good price I suggest you pick it up. The set is slightly not safe for work also.
