Anime Limited’s Q2 2018 Home Video Release Slate Revealed

Updated as of 13th February with Amazon UK links available if you want to pre-order them right now! Anime Limited’s own store won’t make the listings available to purchase until closer to release.

Anime Limited have revealed their second quarter line-up of 2018 via their main website!

Just a quick heads-up, they have clarified that not every title has been listed in their line-up (and to our guess would include a title or two from the Gundam franchise since they didn’t want to repeat what happened with Zeta Gundam years prior) so stay tuned as more will crop up over the next few months into the season.

Anywho let’s take a look and see what they have to offer. Pre-order links won’t be live until closer to their release, and the release dates can change as well so keep that in mind also.
