Eleven Arts, Shout! Factory Announce Home Video Distribution Agreement
posted on by Karen Ressler
Shout! Factory and Eleven Arts Anime Studio announced on Wednesday that they have signed a distribution agreement that will give Shout! Factory home video distribution rights for several of Eleven Arts' anime films.
Eleven Arts Anime Studio previously announced a distribution partnership with retailer Right Stuf in August. Eleven Arts confirmed with ANN that Right Stuf is still publishing Haikara-San: Here Comes Miss Modern and Laughing Under the Clouds: Gaiden as previously announced, so its agreement with Shout! Factory will be for other titles. Right Stuf put Haikara-San: Here Comes Miss Modern Part 1 up for preorder on Thursday; the Blu-ray Disc is slated for December 4.
Eleven Arts' upcoming theatrical releases include Liz and the Blue Bird, The Laws of the Universe: Part 1, Haikara-San: Here Comes Miss Modern Part 2, Laughing Under the Clouds: Gaiden Part 3, and Penguin Highway. Other recent theatrical releases include A Silent Voice and Maquia - When the Promised Flower Blooms.
