Anime Limited’s Q4 2018 Home Video Release Slate Thus Far

Distributor Anime Limited have revealed their fourth-quarter release slate for their anime catalogue in 2018.

Worth noting that the distributor will offer more titles later down the line at any moment so the list won’t be final. As of 26th August (12pm), we have added more titles to the list! We will be updating more as soon as more titles are revealed.

We also want to clarify that there is currently a delay with regards to The Testament of Sister New Devil Burst so there’s no exact release date at the time being for the series (same issue is also happening with the Funimation release).
