There is still a month to go until the MCM London Comic Con and yet UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited are already making some pretty big announcements through their website.
To start with Anime Limited confirmed that they would be bringing Empire of Corpses, which was previously a part of the MCM Loves Anime line-up last October, to Blu-ray and DVD as a Steelbook Collectors release.
Interestingly enough the release will be limited to 1,000 units and will be released on the 11th July 2016 with both English & Japanese audio options.
Synopsis: In an attempt to revive his dearly departed friend, young medical student John Watson becomes obsessed with replicating the work of Dr. Victor Frankenstein—the legendary corpse engineer whose research produced the only re-animated corpse to possess a soul. But when his illegal experiments put him at odds with the British government, Watson is drafted into a worldwide race to find the lost research notes of Victor Frankenstein before the secrets of the human soul fall into the wrong hands.
The second announced came in the form of Harmony, which is another film adapted from a Sci-Fi Novel by Satoshi Itoh; and just like Empire of Corpses it will also be released as a Steelbook Combo Pack limited to 1,000 units.
A standard DVD and Blu-ray release will also follow shortly after with each version containing a booklet filled with details about the film.
Synopsis:Synopsis: In a future ruled by an unwavering dedication to good health, three high school girls led by the defiant Miach Mihie attempt suicide as the ultimate act of rebellion. Tuan Kirie survives, but can’t shake the hatred she has for the “perfect world” she lives in.
Years later, a simultaneous mass suicide rocks the globe and sends society into a state of shock. A small group stands up to take credit for the event, claiming they’ve hijacked the consciousness of every person on the planet. Everything about the terrorists’ message sounds too familiar to Tuan. She suspects her old friend Miach might be involved, but how could that be when she’d supposedly killed herself years earlier? Desperate for answers, Tuan launches an investigation that takes her across the globe chasing the ghost of her old friend. But what is Miach’s end game? Will she finally wake the world from its monotonous slumber? Or, end it all for good?
The final announcement made on their website was confirmation that Anime Limited would be releasing Lucky Star on Blu-ray later this year.
The series was previously released on DVD by Beez Entertainment but since the company closed down stock of it have been extremely hard to find.
The UK Blu-ray release of Lucky Star will feature the complete series in both English and Japanese and will be released as a Collectors Edition set on the 5th September 2016.
Synopsis: What’s the best way to eat dessert? Do twins really have a psychic connection? What kind of guys are into moe girls? These are the kinds of questions that float through the inquisitive mind of anime super-fan Konata Izumi. When she’s not lost in her favourite manga or logging hours in one of her online games, she’s debating the mysteries of the universe with the best friends a girl could ask for.
And while they might not share Konata’s refined eye for anime tropes and trivia, she doesn’t hold it against them. After all, Miyuki Takara is a precious moe dream girl, and twin sisters Tsukasa and Kagami are always there when she needs a helping hand or a notebook to copy homework from (even if Kagami insists on being totally tsundere about it). At the end of the day, Konata could look far and wide, but she’d never find a better group of girls to get her through the horrors of high school!
In short Anime Limited will be releasing Empire of Corpses, Harmony and Lucky Star onto Blu-ray within the near future.
