Anime Limited has announced two theatrical releases at MCM London Comic Con, as well as two TV titles for Blu-ray release.

- Maasaki Yuasa's new feature Ride Your Wave, pictured right, will have a UK cinema release, following a screening at Scotland Loves Anime in October. The love story follows Hinako, a college student who moves to a coastal town. She loves surfing, and when she's on the waves she's fearless, but on land she has trouble riding the waves of life. When a fire wreaks havoc in the town, Hinako encounters a firefighter named Minato. Minato can handle almost any task on land, but is a beginner at surfing. As they surf and spend more time together, Hinako feels drawn to someone like Minato who devotes himself to helping other people, and the two start a relationship. However, Minato loses his life in an accident at sea. Despondent, Hinako sings a song about their memories together, and Minato appears again from the water.

- Keiichi Hara's new feature Birthday Wonderland, pictured left, will have a UK cinema release, also following a screening at Scotland Loves Anime in October.

The story follows Akane, a girl with no self-confidence. On the day before her birthday, she meets a mysterious alchemist Hippocrates and their student Pipo, who both tell her they're on a mission to save the world. Together, they set out from the basement for "Wonderland," and Akane finds herself labelled Wonderland's savior.

- Also the Naoko Yamada series Tamako Market, animated by Kyoto Animation, will be released in a Collectors Blu-ray edition, packaged together with the feature film release Tamako Love Story
