Anime Limited News: New Artwork for Upcoming Releases, Update on Stock, BBFC Listings

It’s been nearly a month since our last Anime Limited article update, and while it’s been quiet some bits and pieces have popped up so here’s a quick round-up on what has been revealed thus far!

Stock Updates

It’s time for another update on the stock for our favourite things – the collector’s editions.

With the fourth season coming very soon in Japan, Anime Limited’s shop exclusive release of the first three seasons for Full Metal Panic! in a special collector’s box has sold out. The standard edition sets themselves are still available but the version with a box to hold all three of them is now out of print with no plans for any reprints of that specific edition (granted there is a possible chance you could see them appear at conventions).

Meanwhile now listed for the ‘Soon to be OOP’ list for the past couple of weeks is the 2017 re-release of Evangelion: 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone collector’s edition. A standard edition Blu-ray and DVD release should be expected once the collector’s edition goes out of print.

Other titles in the ‘Soon to be Out of Print‘ section:
