New Pioneer Releases
After a long gap, Pioneer have finally announced three new releases. The impressive
mecha series Kishin Heidin is concluded with volumes 3 and 4 of the series, and the
wacky goings on at the Masaki Shrine continue in Tenchi Muyo 4 - The Night Before
the Carnival. All three tapes will be released on 25th September for £12.99 each.
Anime Projects delays
Most of the new Anime Projects releases (such as the model kits) have been delayed. The
exception is the SD Double Feature which will go on sale in September as planned. When
this tape was submitted to the BBFC for classification, they insisted that the
mini-documentaries after each feature were seperate items and demanded four fees for the
job. AP responded by carefully examining the rules and then claiming that the documentaries
were exempt from classification entirely due to their documentary/music video format.
Stay tuned for further developments.
