Anime Limited News: Love Live! Sunshine!!, Hyouka Part 2 & More!

It’s been nearly two months since the last round-up on the world of Anime Limited. New information have appeared like new artwork, Spring 2018 licenses and of course Gundam. Here’s the quick TL;DR on all of the news revealed throughout the past couple of weeks.


Love Live! Sunshine!!

Sunrise’s Aqours group is finally hitting the UK & Ireland on Blu-ray as Anime Limited have now unveiled the artwork for the upcoming release.

The complete first season collector’s edition Blu-ray will include all 13 episodes across 2 discs housed in a rigid box with digipack, 3 vinyl stickers and a 20-page booklet with art from the series, cast interviews, group & member info and more. Unlike the other Anime Limited collector’s sets, this release will be available for up to 500 units only. Standard edition DVD will also be released. Audio options include English & Japanese with English subtitles. The series will be available starting 18th June 2018.


Hyouka

A new update is here for the second half of the series!

The set includes episodes 12-22 across 2 discs housed in a rigid box with digipack and an 84-page “Material Archive” art book. The set is designed so that it will fit inside Part 1’s Collector Box. Standard edition DVD will also be released. Audio options include English & Japanese with English subtitles. The series will be available starting 25th June 2018.

Modelled similarly to the Gundam UK sets, Part 1 came with a box to house the series while Part 2 will include a booklet. The set includes episodes 14-25 across 2 discs on a standard Blu-ray case with an artbook. The set is designed so that it will fit inside Part 1’s Collector Box.

Next Going Out of Print title: Sword of the Stranger Collector’s Edition Combo Pack

There hasn’t been that many titles falling under the ‘Going Out of Print’ banner for a while, but recently another title has joined the ranks. The December 2017 release of Sword of the Stranger is now going out of print, and there are some copies left remaining.

The set features the film on both Blu-ray & DVD housed in a rigid box with a digipack and 40-page booklet. The on-disc content from the previous Beez release are all intact and any errors from that release have been corrected in the Anime Limited version. Audio options include English & Japanese with English subtitles. You can order the release over on Shop AllTheAnime.
