Re: Upcoming U.S. Anime Releases - 2018 Edition

Update on the Utena 20th Anniversary box sets:

Regretfully, due to circumstances beyond our control, the 20th Anniversary Revolutionary Girl Utena Blu-ray Box Set will be delayed. The ring components of this product have been lost by the carrier, and while we have attempted to wait for them to be found, this has not occurred. Therefore these components will have to be remanufactured.

We realize this will come as a disappointment to many of you who hoped to have this wonderful box set for the holiday. Rest assured that we will do everything in our power to expedite the re-manufacture so that we can ship this item to you as soon as possible. All other components are in house and we will assemble them internally to turn them the day that they arrive.

Please accept my personal apologies for this issue. I was truly hoping that the materials would be located in time.

Best,
Shawne Kleckner
President

Are the other two rival groups ready for a new series of cross-band duets, with each song pairing one member of STARISH and one member of HEAVENS? Will Haruka be up to writing yet another round of spectacular songs? It's time to pick up the tempo and sing to the balconies as the musical one-upmanship only gets wilder in UTANO - PRINCESAMA LEGEND STAR!

With Sato being better trained, more experienced, and allied with other Ajins, Kei has only two chances at heading off the final apocalypse: to somehow learn how to better control the Invisible Black Matter being he generates or to recruit other Ajins into the battle.

Because Rekka has a personal score to settle with Karma, and she's determined to destroy that Horror herself!

It won't be easy adjusting… and not just because Chiya still tends to check to see if people have tails or want their tummies rubbed! But the other girls studying at the Natsumeya teahouse are all unusual in their own ways, and it's clear from the beginning that Chiya's going to be great friends with studious Kon, rambunctious Koume and shy Nono. And that's good, because if Chiya's going to find her missing mother, she'll need all the help and support she can get in URARA MEIROCHO!

And just in case that isn't exciting enough, the "ClassicaLoids" have added Giant Robots and spectacular light shows to the mix! But as more Classicaloids continue to arrive, can the town withstand the combined creative energies of dozens of musical geniuses all determined to promote their own creative output? Find out when Bach is back, Liszt is on the list, and Chopin is chopping at the bit to unleash the full power of classical music in ClassicaLoid!

SRP: $29.98

SYNOPSIS: The sleeves of Coco's penguin coat are sewn together to look like flippers, so it might seem a bit awkward to wear. However, Coco's father gave the coat to her before he disappeared, so she wears it every time she goes out exploring. What Coco doesn't know is that the Goblins have a legend about a brave flightless bird and when Coco unexpectedly ends up in their realm, they all think that Coco is the Penguin who can save them from the evil Emperor of Darkness! But how can a 6-year-old girl stop an army of demons? Coco doesn't know, but together with her new friends Chaley the Goblin and Zammie the fallen Angel, she's certainly going to try in YONA YONA PENGUIN!


Title: RIN-NE SEASON 3
Published by: Sentai Filmworks
Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 625 min.
Street Date: 5/22/2018
Format: BD, DVD
Language: Japanese with English Subtitles
SRP: $89.98, $69.98

SYNOPSIS: If you've got a ghost in your Japanese neighborhood, the spirit-moving specialists to call are Rinne Rokudo and Sakura Mamiya. Sure, they're both still in high school, but Sakura's been seeing the dearly and not-so-dearly departed since she was a child, and Rinne's part shinigami, which comes in handy when dealing with the more assertive supernatural incursions. What Rinne isn't good at is working his way out of a perpetual state of debt, and the need for quick cash can lead them onto unhallowed grounds where other exorcists fear to tread. Cleaning the Wheel of Reincarnation? Repossessing magical artifacts? What about REALLY dangerous tasks like trying to train a cat? It's all just another paranormal day's work in Rumiko Takahashi's RIN-NE - SEASON 3!


Title: SWORD ORATORIA
Published by: Sentai Filmworks
Distributed by: Section23 Films
Run Time: 300 min.
Street Date: 5/29/2018
Format: BD, DVD, COMBO
Language: English & Japanese with English Subtitles
SRP: $69.98, $59.98, $129.98

SYNOPSIS: Contrary to what the adventures of Bell and the Goddess Hestia might imply, not everyone goes into the dungeon of Orario to pick up girls. The veterans of the Goddess Loki's Familia have lots of reasons for risking life and limb facing the monsters and mayhem lurking within the deadly labyrinth's multiple levels, but new member and mage Lefiya just wants to prove that she's worthy to be on the same team as her hero, the famed sword princess Aiz Wallenstein. As for Aiz herself, she's seeking something that no one else even suspects, and she may find it when trouble comes after her from the previously unreached 59th level! If you thought you knew the Danmachi universe, be prepared to think again as the adventure continues from an all-new point of view in SWORD ORATORIA!

Re: Upcoming U.S. Anime Releases - 2018 Edition


We've had inquiries from those of you with Amazon orders for the 20th Anniversary Utena Blu-ray set. Amazon has currently delisted the item because we don't have a new release date set for it. However, for some reason Amazon is telling people it is shipping this week. It is not. The set will not ship until we get the new rings which are currently under production.

The rings are very nice quality and therefore they take a lot of time to re-manufacture. We hope that those of you who have ordered this item will please be patient with us as we work to get this issue resolved.

- Kris, Senior Producer

Lead by the Emperor of Darkness, they waste no time to dispatch their fearsome Battle Beasts, which easily defeat Mazinger Z. As Koji and Sayaka leave for the United States, it's up to skilled pilot, Tetsuya Tsurugi, and his new and improved Great Mazinger to take a stand!

The battle between good and evil continues in the exciting sequel to Mazinger Z! This includes the original Japanese language with English subtitles!


Thank You WTK!!! I'll greatly appreciate any links to the pre-order too. My Mazinger wish list is being completed.
