Anime Releases [August 2016]

Welcome to the Japan Curiosity anime release schedule, the most complete schedule for anime releases in the UK. I hate to kick this off on a negative note but while there appears to be a great amount of awesome series coming this month I expect another round of disappointing delays. No company can avoid all delays, some are just plain unexpected and unavoidable, that doesn’t mean more can’t be done to take measures to reduce the amount of delay – something I think certain companies aren’t doing. With that said there is potentially some great series coming this month including Assassination Classroom Season 1 Part 2Haibane Renmei CollectionBeck: The Complete Collection and Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam – Part 1.

Update: As expect All the Anime announced delays for the majority of their planned releases. The table has been updated to reflect this as has the hopes and dreams of fan across the UK.

*We’ve decided to change our links to products from Amazon to Anime-On-Line mainly because they are generally cheaper and we like to support that.

**(Blu-ray / DVD) means released separately on both formats, although in some cases they may be released as a combo pack, in which case that will be marked with (Combi Pack). Instance where CE or DE is used this denotes Collector’s Edition and Deluxe Edition respectively.
