August 2, 2022
The summer may be slipping away by the day, but we’re not ready to let it escape before…. the All The Anime Summer Sale!
Yes, we’re kicking off this month’s newswire with a reminder that our huge summer sale begins this Friday, 5th August. Expect all manner of great deals, including Buy One Get One Free offers, a host of Collector’s Edition deals, and free shipping on international orders over £100!
This is also a great time to consider signing up to our newsletter for a little special something from us when the sale commences, or if you want to prepare yourselves for maximum savings for this sale and far beyond, why not sign up to Anime (Un)Limited?
It’s also another exciting month for anime in the cinema, as the charming, tear-jerking Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko arrives on the big screen in selected cinemas on 10th August. The film was a real hit last year at Scotland Loves Anime, and we’re sure a lot of you will love this outing from the director of Children of the Sea and Komi Can’t Communicate.
This isn’t even the only film we’re bringing to UK cinemas this year, but you’re free to speculate what we’re planning for the very end of August…
So, that’s the preamble out of the way, let’s move on to the…. amble? (Is that how that works?)
August 2022 releases
Let’s start with our usual run-down of what’s coming in terms of new releases over the course of the month, and as per usual we have some unmissable titles!
Seraph of the End Standard Edition Blu-ray
The Heroic Legend of Arslan Season 1 Standard Edition Blu-ray (Deal of the Week pre-orders open 16th August)

Blood-C Limited Edition Blu-ray (Early Bird pre-orders open 18th August)

New August pre-orders
With our summer sale taking up the lion’s share of our mindspace this August, we’re keeping things rather svelte for the month in terms of completely new titles, but we still have plans afoot for some new additions to our (and your!) collection, with plenty more in the pipeline as we move into the autumn and beyond as always of course.
Blood-C Limited Edition
After a handful of unforeseen hold-ups with our Ultimate Edition (making a product of such size and scope is hard, y’know!), that stunning and definitive edition of Production I.G’s twisting, turning, eye-catching Blood-C is now on the brink of being complete.
However, we know that plenty of you prefer a slightly less bombastic version of some of our titles, and so we present to you our Blood-C Complete Series Limited Edition!
This Limited Edition set sports the same beautiful artwork as our Ultimate Edition, but in our more traditional Collector’s Edition packaging form. This rigid slipcase, holds two Amaray cases within – one housing the TV series, the other the movie.
You’ll be able to pre-order this item – or grab another chance to nab our Ultimate Edition at a special price – on the 18th of August.
Product: Blood-C Limited Edition
Release date: 29th August 2022
Pre-orders open: Thursday August 18th 2022, 5PM
Pre-order price: £34.99
New vinyl release
We’re still waiting for the final sign-off, but we’re hoping to have news of a much-anticipated vinyl release to close out August. Stay tuned as we’ll have news as soon as that date is confirmed!
Of course, alongside all of this our Gundam SEED Destiny Ultimate Edition is still available at an Early Bird price throughout the month, so don’t miss your chance to grab this gorgeous edition of the continuation of the Cosmic Century!
We’ll be back next month with more new titles for pre-order, and our schedule of cinema releases continues to be packed, so as always, stay tuned!
