MCM London October 2017 Announcements: MVM Round-up

The second day of MCM London Comic Con has arrived and this time we have distributor MVM unveiling more new licenses.

As mentioned way back in the May 2017 MCM round-up, distributor MVM Entertainment are a much smaller company than the others so as such they don’t have a panel whatsoever, but they do have a presence at the expo thanks to their booth that sells their titles. For announcements they decide to unveil it through social media instead, most notably Twitter.

Before mentioning the titles they stated that they had 10 titles to reveal, but one of them was No Game No Life Zero which was unveiled a few days ago. The titles listed below are in alphabetical order.

Also we want to remind everyone that it is clearly unknown on whether these respective titles will be available on DVD or not, as Sentai Filmworks have confirmed they will be discontinuing the DVD format from 2018 (was 2019 but it seems it’s happening sooner than we thought) onwards. MVM have stated that DVDs are important to them in terms of sales so we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

All of the titles listed will be on Blu-ray regardless, but as stated the DVD format is unknown for the time being.
