Comic Con License News!
As always representatives from the three big UK anime companies got together at this weekend's MCM London Comic Con to announce some new acquisitions, and although there were less than normal there was still plenty to report. Manga Entertainment had the biggest news, announcing the license of Production IG's fantasy epic Attack on Titan, the big budget live action adaptation of the classic sci-fi anime Space Battleship Yamato and feature-length anime spin-off Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works.
MVM had the most announcements, confirming the re-license of the fanservice-laden sci-fi series Daphne in the Brilliant Blue alongside former ADV Films titles Pumpkin Scissors and Red Garden. They have also picked up the sci-fi series Shangri-La, modern supernatural fantasy C - Control and detective drama Heaven's Memo Pad. Rounding off the announcements were new distributor Anime Limited, who revealed that they had pipped Manga and Kazé to the sci-fi film Tiger & Bunny: The Beginning, a spin-off from the superhero series Tiger & Bunny.
