Anime Limited license Early Shinkai Anime

Postby Dannielle » Thu Feb 28, 2013 6:32 pm

"Pleased to announce (and confirm for those at the GYFF) that we have licensed Makoto Shinkai's earlier works - The Place Promised to Us in our Early Days and Voices of a Distant Star."

"Blu-ray confirmed and we'll have more details soon including a blog post on it - for now a trailer. "

"Also added into the mix is a sweet little piece called "Travelling Daru" - a short prepared by a lot of the team involved in The Children Who Chase Lost Voices."

We already knew they had Place Promised in Our Early Days, but they've just confirmed it, added Voices of a Distant Star, confirmed Blu-ray, and announced new content... Travelling Daru...

YES YES YES YES

Anime Ltd is wanting me to give them my money, and I'm more than happy to oblige.

EDIT: If Andrew can get these for BD why can't Jerome get 5CM Per Second?

It's not his fault - there are some pretty good reasons it isn't out in the UK just now. I know very well that he'd like nothing more than release it on Blu-ray so fingers crossed it happens at some point :).

I logged in to ask this exact same question, when the page refreshed you had already beat me to it. But yeah, this^
Oh I may as well ask this too, is the name going to be changing or are you settling on Anime Limited?

We've said this before, but it pretty much boils down to the rights holder saying "no" when asked if Manga could release 5CPS on Blu-ray. Believe me, we all want this to come to Blu-ray, but at the end of the day until that stance changes nothing that can be done.

Believe me I don't, actual I really don't care. I've seen 5 Centimeters per Second and I thought it was tedious. The main characters moping about, the main male acting all emo, I thought he was going to top him self near the end. That's an hour of my life I won't get back.

Moreso for the eye candy than anything else. By all means I didn't think 5cm was bad, I would love to own it on Bluray.
It's a shame though that if it ever does come out here I'm 99% sure it won't have the ADV dub which is the one I watched.

Great news, thanks! Another double dip for me.
If you can add to the package the old shorts by Shinkai then this would become a TOTAL EPIC WIN.

So much of my money will be going to andrew that I might as well just give him free access to my bank account at this rate. Pure awesomeness.

I will get both day one for sure. Nice to see these good movies back on tracker in the UK though im getting a bit worried since all the releases announced, all of them are re-releases if im not mistaken, besides 009 Re:Cyborg.

Hope to see something new soon and it can be something that is already in the US, as long as its the first time in the UK.
