Kill la Kill Third Volume Delay
posted on by Andrew Osmond
Anime Limited has made the following announcement on its website, confirming a delay to its upcoming release of the third volume of Kill la Kill (pictured).
We were delighted to have pre-release copies [at MCM London Comic Con] for attendees to purchase but by the final day of the event it became apparent to us that some people were experiencing issues removing the digipack and book from the rigid case inside the Collector's box. We checked some of the stock we had on the booth and following this we immediately had all remaining stock at our production house quarantined as we experienced the same problems. This is despite the samples we were sent prior to the event, and that we ultimately signed off on in order to have them produced in time for the event, not having this issue. In turn a new rigid box correcting the issues discovered for all units will now be produced.
As a result it does mean that Kill la Kill Part 3 has been delayed once again with a new tentative date being the end of June or possibly even early July.
Anime Limited will also set up a replacement scheme for those buyers who purchased Kill la Kill Volume 3 at MCM London Comic Con.
To everyone who purchased Kill la Kill Part 3 at MCM London Comic Con, May 2015 – we are going to begin a replacement scheme for the reason specified above. To apply for your replacement please email Jeremy on [email protected] with the subject line “KILL LA KILL PART 3 – MCM LONDON REPLACEMENT” and it must including the following:
- your full name

- a photo of your Kill la Kill Box 3 DVD/Blu-ray
- Please tell us in your email if you purchased the DVD or Blu-ray version and proof of you having been at MCM London Comic Con in the form of sending us a copy of the confirmation email you will have received when you purchased your tickets online. NOTE: If you purchased your ticket(s) to the event on the day you attended and/or don't have email confirmation, please include a picture of your ticket/pass/wristband in the photo of your Kill la Kill Box 3. Please have both the Box and you ticket/pass/wristband in clear view.(If you can't do any of the above, email Jeremy on [email protected] so we can discuss.)
VERY IMPORTANT – Deadline to apply for Kill la Kill Box 3 MCM London replacements is 9am on Monday 8th June.
In terms of when replacements will be fulfilled, we are endeavouring to get them to all applicants as soon as possible, but we are aiming for it to be before the general release of the title.
