It was SLA 2011 Mystery film (or the film we couldn't confirm in time for the printed programme, as I like to call it).
I really liked this one. Not one of Production IG's best, but it looks so nice.

Think I'll pass on this one. After seeing trailers for it I decided not to get the region A release so I don't see me buying it now it is getting released over here.

I thought it was quite enjoyable flick. Not life changing, but fun nonetheless.

Yeah it was a good film. Took me ages to get used to the weird animation style but some of the film looks gorgeous.

Found the plot slightly disturbing in parts, especially [spoiler=]when the bad guy kills cotton. Just unnecessary.[/spoiler]

Anyway I'm a bit annoyed I bought the US version of this a couple of weeks ago now. I'd rather support the UK release but didn't think we'd be getting one.
