New UK Anime Distribution Company Launching in 2013

posted on by Andrew Osmond
Andrew Partridge speaks about forthcoming company distributing anime on home, cinema and digital formats.

A new anime distribution company is due to launch in 2013, set up by Andrew Partridge of Kazé UK and Scotland Loves Anime. The name of the new anime label is not confirmed yet, although the underlying company is called Anime Limited. It will release anime on home and digital formats, and also in cinemas. ANN conducted an interview with Partridge about the new company, available here.

On TV anime, Partridge says his goal is to "take a select number of archive and new titles and elevate them to a Criterion-style release." For cinema releases, his aim is "to develop a theatrical market for Japanese animation over the next five or six years."

Partridge cannot confirm any specific anime titles at this stage, but says he will start "talking content" in early January. He says that, “For film, I have some nice surprises over the next few months. For TV, I have two contracts signed on my desk and a ton more on their way." The first home releases are likely to be in the late second quarter of 2013, Partridge says.

The label's website will be launched in January. For now, it will have an online presence at the following places:
