According to Anime Limited, 'The problems had forced it to be pushed were resolved faster than we had anticipated. So if you have pre-ordered this you can (all going well) expect it to arrive at some point within the next week. Stock has been sent to retailers, so it'll be a question of them being able to fulfil their orders respectively as quickly as they can. We ask for everyone to please allow some flexibility on when you may receive your pre-order of the Blu-ray version.This includes if you've placed an order at our web shop for the Blu-ray version. '
- Blood Blockade Battlefront has been moved forward to October 24.
- No-Rin has been pushed back to November at the earliest. According to Anime Limited, 'We were informed new disc masters were needing to be created for our release, at the request of the licensor. Tthis process involves a PAL master for the DVD discs being required. So this will now include PAL formatted DVDs, again at the request of the licensor. This has now resulted in more time being needed to get this sorted.'
