Also, news on Anime Limited's Makoto Shinkai releases.

UK company Anime Limited has announced that its home release of Kenji Kamiyama's action science-fiction film 009 RE:CYBORG (pictured right) has been delayed "due to a delay in the completion of the English dub of the film. We're still waiting on an updated delivery date for this and can't give a firm date yet."

Anime Limited also made some comments on its releases of Makoto Shinkai's anime films. Its upcoming twinpack of The Place Promised in Our Early Days and Voices of a Distant Star (planned in both Collector's and regular editions) has been delayed. The reason is "difficulties getting our hands on the English language assets for the films... which reside elsewhere and not with Sentai Filmworks. This is something we're currently working on and should have sorted soon."

The label added that the twinpack is currently listed as a December 2014 release on Amazon, but that this is just a holding date, and the pack will be out 'way before' December.

Anime Limited is also planning "a Collector's Edition of Makoto Shinkai's work to date which will include a couple titles which we hope to negotiate the inclusion of." The label also confirmed that The Garden of Words (pictured left) will be released in a separate edition, planned for the first quarter of 2014.

Finally, Anime Limited confirmed that the following titles are also planned for the first quarter of 2014: Outlaw Star, Tiger & Bunny the Movie: The Beginning, Durarara!!, Nerima Daikon Brothers, the Gurren Lagann Collector's Edition, and a theatrical release of A Letter to Momo.
