Alternative World, Violet Evergarden Movie in 4K Ultra HD, Captain Tylor & More • Anime UK News

June 2, 2022

Anime Limited have revealed their latest news and updates, with their current release schedule for the month of June and which titles will be available to pre-order.

The distributor has announced a select few that will be on offer throughout each Thursday of the month.


Emma: A Victorian Romance Season 2

Release Date: 8th August 2022

The collector’s edition Blu-ray release for Emma: A Victorian Romance Season 2 was previously mentioned in last month’s update and will be arriving a lot sooner than expected.

The early bird offer begins Thursday 2nd June 5pm UK time for £34.99 (£31.50 for Anime Unlimited members).

Retailing for £59.99 SRP, the set includes a rigid box, Blu-ray case and 44-page booklet. The discs are expected to be the same as the North American Nozomi release, and will include Japanese audio with English subtitles and Nozomi’s English dub which was kickstarted back in September 2018.

The second season aired in 2007 and was animated by studio Ajia-do Animation Works with Tsuneo Kobayashi as director, for a total of 12 episodes.

“In the faraway village of Haworth, a new chapter in Emma’s life has begun. Now employed by the wealthy Mölders family, Emma has resolved to put the past behind her. She’ll have to adjust to a new house, a charming (but eccentric) new mistress, and a host of fellow servants, some with buried pasts of their own.

Meanwhile, back in London, William is doing his best to uphold his father’s wishes as the Jones family heir, but try as he might, he can’t forget Emma. Yet, whenever he feels at his worst, Eleanor is always there to comfort him with a warm, shy smile. Could the answer to his broken heart be right before his eyes?”

Violet Evergarden the Movie

Release Date: 29th August 2022

Kyoto Animation’s theatrical feature film Violet Evergarden the Movie that concluded the franchise is now coming to the UK on home video in 4K Ultra HD format!

The film’s early bird offer begins Thursday 9th June 5pm UK time for £49.99 (£45 for Anime Unlimited members).

The 4K Ultra HD disc will feature Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision High Dynamic Range, like the Japanese release.

Retailing for £69.99 SRP, the set includes a rigid box, Ultra HD Blu-ray case and a number of physical items including a 68-page booklet, 12-page special booklet that discusses the Dolby Cinema presentation process, a replica of the Japanese theatrical poster in A3 format, 16 art cards and Violet’s letter translated into English.

As the film has yet to be released in other English-speaking regions, the discs are expected to be sorted by Anime Limited and one of the authoring companies they’ve collaborated with before. The film will include Japanese audio with English subtitles and the English dub.

“Violet Evergarden, a former child soldier turned “Auto Memory Doll” scribe, has made a name for herself writing letters that evoke the feelings her clients cannot, in pursuit of understanding the meaning behind the “I love you” spoken to her long ago. When a terminally ill boy asks her to fulfil one last request for his family, Violet must confront her own feelings of love, loss, and her past with the one who told her those cherished words in order to write one final letter.”

Now, Makoto and the others are stranded all over again in a strange new kingdom called Creteria. It’s a bleak, industrial realm ruled by a despot named Dall.
