Anime Limited Reveals November & December 2020 Titles with Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Promised Neverland, Gundam & More

Distributor Anime Limited has revealed their next batch of titles planned for release later this year with the November 2020 release schedule as well as a few that are arriving in December 2020.

The distributor has clarified that this update does not reveal their entire December line-up so stay tuned for what else they have in store later down the line.

To recap, we have a few titles that were previously revealed making an appearance in the schedule:

Makoto Shinkai’s Weathering With You Deluxe Edition 4K Ultra HD & Blu-ray combo pack is scheduled for 2nd November exclusively through Anime Limited and Zavvi. The SRP £69.99 set is the only way to own the 4K version in the UK at the current time but also comes with an bonus Blu-ray disc with more extra features.

The collector’s edition set will begin its early bird on Friday 2nd October (5pm BST) until Thursday 8th October at £24.99, but will also be available to pre-order across all retailers at SRP £39.99.

This contains all 13 episodes plus the OVA, extended version of Episode 13, and the Japan Tour compilation films. The set will also be available across all retailers for SRP £69.99.

For the titles revealed below, we will be ordering them based on when the Early Bird pre-orders will become available, as we have done before with the September line-up. The idea of this is because Anime Limited wants users to receive more heads up on their titles.
