LDMS now distrubting ADV titles in the UK.

Date: 2008 March 11th Tuesday [19:08] | Posted By: Joe

We've received a press release from LDMS who will be now be distributing ADV DVD titles in the UK, after ADV closed their UK offices. The press release details the release schedule up until May 2008.

After ADV UK closing down it's good to see that their titles will be still be distributed, but it's sad to see that ADV UK had to shut shop, the UK staff there were more than just people doing their jobs, they were actual anime fans with a passion for what they were doing which does make a difference. ADV UK's presence at anime events will be sorely missed. They were more than just another company, they were actually part of the UK anime scene. It was a shame to see these people lose their jobs. We wish them the best of luck in finding a new careers.

It will be interesting to see if LDMS will be active in anime fan circles as ADV UK was.
Full Story
Press release as follows:




LDMS, in partnership with ADV Films, is pleased to offer once again ALL titles in the ADV catalogue from all good retailers. These include series on hiatus, titles already announced but delayed, and older titles on special offer from select outlets.

"It’s business as usual for ADV Film’s titles in the UK," said Andy Lyon, Sales Director at Lace Digital Media Sales. "The delay was regrettable, but unavoidable as part of the operational transition. LDMS are happy to announce stock of all titles is in circulation again as before."

"It is our great pleasure to be able to build upon all the hard work we’ve done for ADV Films over the past five years, by expanding our role and ensuring the continuing presence of the brand ands its titles here in the UK," said new Label Manager Howard Musson.
