posted on by Andrew Osmond
Death Parade Ultimate Edition, 2015 Lupin the Third, Belladonna of Sadness, announcement of propaganda feature Momotaro's Divine Sea Warriors

Anime Limited has announced that it has acquired the following titles.

- Death Parade will have an Ultimate Edition later in 2016, including the original Death Billiards anime (right).

- The 2015 version of Lupin the Third has been acquired.

- Eiichi Yamamoto's 1973 experimental adult anime film Belladonna of Sadness (Kanashimi no Belladonna) will be released as a 4K remastered Blu-ray.

- The Tatami Galaxy (previously released as a UK DVD by Beez).

- Anime Limited will also release a Blu-ray edition of Momotaro's Divine Sea Warriors (left), a World War II propaganda film which was the first Japanese animated feature ever made. This will be an HD remaster and will include a booklet written by Jonathan Clements. (The film will be also be screened at this year's Scotland Loves Anime.)

- At MCM London Comic Con, an Anime Limited panel mentioned that the possibility of a new release of Season 1 of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya will depend on Funimation's plans for the same title in America. If Funimation authors both seasons of the series in a single set, then Anime Limited would need to author its own discs, as it only has the rights to the first season of the series.
