Andy has been writing for UK Anime since 2006, and was the site's editor-in-chief until August 2017.  Contrary to popular belief, Andy is not actually a robot.

It's the final day of MCM Comic Con, but we're still not done with announcements for the weekend, with Anime Limited promising more news as part of both a panel as well as their "wall of news" on the show floor.

Firstly, Death Parade will be getting Anime Limited's Ultimate Edition treatment, via a release that includes the original Anime Mirai Project short Death Billiards. This will be released in 2016, with more news forthcoming over the coming weeks.

The 2K remaster of the first ever feature-length anime, World War II propaganda film Momotaro's Divine Sea Warriors, will be getting a UK Blu-ray release complete with a 200-page book written by Jonathan Clements. The film will also screen at Scotland Loves Anime this year, and may get screenings at other festivals.

Lupin III's 2015 TV anime series is also coming our way, with a release planned for later this year.

Following it's screening announcement at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, it's been confirmed that Belladonna of Sadness will get a UK Blu-ray release based on its 4K remaster, as well as some further theatrical screenings.

Last but not least, The Tatami Galaxy will be returning to the UK on home video. There's no official word of formats yet, but we've heard to expect a Blu-ray edition.

It's also been confirmed that more Anime Limited titles will soon be appearing on Crunchyroll. More details will follow regarding these plans in due course.

In a question and answer session, it was confirmed that there's still no UK release date for The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Season 1 - this is currently waiting on Funimation Entertainment's US plans, as they may author the entire series as one set in which case Anime Limited will need to autho their own discs as they only have the rights to season one.

So, there you have it, then end to a busy MCM London Comic Con packed wth our announcements. Let us know your thoughts on what you've seen and heard over the weekend in the comments below!
