posted on by Andrew Osmond
At the London MCM Expo festival, Manga Entertainment announced the following upcoming releases:
The Wolf Children - the latest feature film by Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time). The film will be released on both DVD and Blu-ray. A theatrical release is also planned, and possibly a theatrical retrospective of all of Hosoda's previous films.
Blood-C (the television series)
Blood-C The Last Dark - the feature film sequel to the above.
Hellsing Ultimate part 5 to 8 (two Blu-ray discs and two DVD discs), 'hopefully' in May.
Hellsing Ultimate parts 1 to 4 will be released on Blu-ray on the same day.
Guilty Crown is planned for release in April; Cat Planet Cuties and Jormungand are also due next year.
Jerome Mazandarani said that he was still negotiating with Kadakowa over the series Steins;Gate, and that it 'might' be ready by May or June 2013.
Mazandarani also said that he would like to release BTOOOM! and Usagi Drop. He also mentioned that he "would like to do something" with the film versions of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, but that it would better to wait until the third film was releases.
Andrew Partridge of Kaze UK added that he would like to release Deadman Wonderland and (an 'unrealistic' hope) Nodame Cantabile.
Update - Cat Planet Cuties added.
