Anime Limited promised new titles aplenty at this May's MCM London Comic Con, and they've certainly delivered on the first day of the event. For starters, they announced the following titles from their booth:

Persona 3 Movies 1-4

High School Fleet

- Black Butler Season 3

- Dimension W

This took us onwards to the distributor's first panel of the weekend, which brought us the news of the Full Metal Alchemist Ultimate Edition - and boy is it glorious.

This Ultimate Edition will ship with an outer box and polystyrene packaging, within which you'll find a resin 31cm x 25cm replica of the gate seen in the show (see our header image for a peek at that), within which are contained both of the show's sets of discs in Amaray cases.

The release will also feature a 320 page art book, a custom certificate (with an equally custom Alchemist Name for the buyer) and of curse all 51 episodes of the show.

This Ultimate Edition is limited to 970 copies, and will cost £124.99 between now and July 5th, then £149.99 until October 1st - the retail SRP is a whopping £299.99. You can pre-order the release from this new landing site on the Anime Limited web site.

Meanwhile, we had confirmation that the Escaflowne Ultimate Edition will contain both the original and Director's Cut versions of the series, both with the English dub. There's more to announce about this release in the summer, which Andrew Partridge suggests will offer a "good audio experience". The Eureka Seven Ultimate Edition is still in progress, and we'll see another Ultimate Edition release announced over the course of this weekend.

During a question and answer session, it was confirmed that neither MVM Entertainment nor Anime Limited have the home video rights to Love Live! The School Idol Movie - more importantly, we learned that Kotori is Jeremy Graves favourite character while Andrew Partridge is more of a Nico man.

It was also confirmed that the long-delayed Makoto Shinkai Twin Pack is still in the works - authoring is complete, but discussions are on-going surrounding additional content, specifically the possibility of including the soundtracks for the two films contained within it.
