It has been quite some time now since Anime Limited announced any new licenses, but with MCM this weekend the team have promised three new announcements, two of which will be TV series while the other is something different.
Today Anime Limited have made their first announcement in the form of Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo which they plan to release on DVD, Blu-ray and through on demand services sometime in 2015. Speaking about the series Andrew of Anime Limited had the following to say:
“It’s great to be able to release this classic series – based on a classic piece of literature- here in the UK and on blu-ray too! I really enjoyed this series when it was first out and I’m glad to bring it back to the front of people’s minds. What can I say? We were due a classic release anyway!”
The series was handled by studio Gonzo and ran for 24 episodes between October 2004 and March 2005. The anime is loosely based on Alexandre Drumas’ classic French novel Le Comete de Monte Cristo. You can read more about Anime Limited’s release over on their site right here.
