See, look at this bulls***. The UK is blessed with Manga Entertainment as a publisher and will be able to pick these titles up at $47(which is still a bit high), while in the states we're stuck with Aniplex America who will be charging $90 for these titles.

I've heard other people going to region free players, and I have been looking into them over the last few months but now I sure getting one is in my best interest.

If they're getting all this http://www.rightstuf.com/​1-​800-​338-​6827/​catalogmgr/​PIzM3IsMrcM=​MjT9nI/​browse/​item/​98498/​4/​0/​0 then I'd agree that we're getting the short end of the stick. If they're just getting a bare bones release, then I'm happy with what we're getting.

^^^ I would happily pay twice the price, hey even more if we got even half of what the US get (and I mean this in general not for SAO). I'm bored of our bog standard releases in the UK, even the special editions pale in comparison. Meh I'll just carry on importing.

I can understand that. For most titles I'd prefer a less elaborate release, something along the lines of Nozomi's releases.

I guess in either case having the option to choose one would be ideal for the buyer. I can see myself paying $200 plus for a show that really touched me and holds a special place from all the anime I've seen, however I don't wanted to pay $200 plus for every Aniplex title that comes out here.

Their version is very barebones and doesn't come with any special features. On the flip side, however, they're getting a combo pack while we aren't.

Honestly, while the exclusion of the features does kinda suck, the fact that it's about half what we're being forced to pay more than makes up for it.

Besides, most of the bonus stuff that AoA is throwing in to the US release is just paper crap anyways.

Patema Inverted scheduled for theatrical release in the UK by Anime Limited

Glasgow, UK November 28, 2013 – Anime Limited are thrilled to announce a limited cinema release of Patema Inverted in the UK.

Patema Inverted is the latest cinematic offering from the talented Yasuhiro Yoshiura, director of the much loved Time of Eve and Pale Cocoon OVA. The film is set in a unique underground world where an adventurous young princess, Patema, sets to explore the ‘danger zone’ – the region where passage has been forbidden by the leaders of the community. As she investigates the ‘danger’, Patema soon discovers just what’s going on right under her feet.

Set for release in Japan in November this year, Anime Limited is very proud to bring this unique and beautiful film to UK anime audiences. Incredibly designed and breathtakingly shot, Patema Inverted is sure to be a hit with audiences.

In addition to the theatrical release of Patema Inverted, Anime Limited will also be releasing the film as a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and DVD with a regular release of the film on Blu-ray and DVD at a later date.

Andrew Partridge, founder and president of Anime Limited says: ‘We’re very excited to bring the visual and storytelling treat that is Patema Inverted to the UK for theatrical release. Having such a film made available to cinema-goers is what we strive to do here at Anime Limited. Being able to also bring the film to home video allows us to provide UK anime audiences with a full service experience’.

I had no idea that anyone in the UK even licensed it, but Space Dandy's got a release date. It's getting a DVD and BD release on the 24th of November which is a long way away, but still thought that it might be worth mentioning.

Thought I might mention since The Garden of Sinners is OOP right now in North America that MVM has picked up the license for the UK along with some other titles.
