Play.com to end first party retail sales

Date: Thursday 10th January 2013 [16:58] | Posted By: Joe
Category: > Retail

We've just heard that popular on-line retailer Play.com will stop "first party retail sales" by the end of March 2013. They intend to focus on it's Marketplace business. Play.com were sold to the Rakuten Group in 2011 for £25m. With the price reflecting the close of the tax loophole that allowed them to sell their DVDs from the Channel Islands, without paying VAT.

This basically means they will not directly distribute goods, but instead act as a market place to allow third party companies to sell stuff.

Cowboy Bebop returns to the UK on DVD and Blu-ray Q3 2013

Date: Saturday 22nd December 2012 [13:54] | Posted By: Joe
Category: > Anime > DVD

New UK anime company on the block Anime Limited have just announced on Twitter (and other social media) that their first title will be Cowboy Bebop on DVD and Blu-ray. It'll be released sometime in Q3 of 2013. The TV show has been released in the UK a few times on DVD before but has been out of print for a while and UK copies of the DVD are hard to find.

It has never been released on blu-ray in the UK. A hi-def version of the series has the potential to look amazing as the series was cel animated with some CGI, if done properly the blu-ray release would be worth grabbing!

The series was voted number 2 on the top anime of all time list by 11,700 Newtype USA readers (Neon Genesis Evangelion the TV show was voted number 1).

Cowboy Bebop, like Evangelion is one of those landmark must have titles that all anime fans should see. Additionally, Bebop isn't just about the anime, it's also about the music, The Seatbelts (Yoko Kanno's band) do an amazing job on the Bebop soundtrack.

Category: > Toys

At the moment we don't really cover figures much on Otaku News, but every now and again there's something you just have to shout about, we know that our review of the Perfect Piece Tachikoma proved popular, so we know a lot of our readers will be interested in the pre-orders for the Revoltech No.126 Tachikoma. The figure comes with all the articulation you'd expect from Revoltech, along with with interchangeable hands, and fun accessories like organic oil. It also includes some wheel mounts so you can speed it along re-enacting Section 9's adventures. The thing that makes this model stand apart (or stand-alone sorry, we couldn't resist the pun) is that it's magnetic! So you can also relive those wall climbing moments.

The good folks from UK anime, manga and Asian pop culture publication NEO magazine have sent us the details of their latest issue. It's due to hit the shelves on Thursday 23rd February 2012 (available from WH Smith, Tesco and all good newsagents). It features their round up of the greatest anime movies of all time, with their own top 10 list, along with reader contributions.

Plus previews of anime, along with all the usual features and articles you'd expect. K-Pop fans will want to read the article on Korea's Japanese pop invasion with an analysis of the Oricon charts. We're interested in reading the report on the continuing aid efforts in Japan following the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami of 2011.

Category: > Retail

Hyper Japan 2012 Spring is all set to start on Friday 24th February and will run until Sunday 26th February 2012. One of the many things we like about the Japanese culture event is the all the different stalls and the wide variety of things they sell.

Every time you go you're always going to find something new and exciting. Graphic artist Amy Crabtree of Cakes With Faces will be there. You may have seen her stall at other events such as the London MCM Expo. At Hyper Japan she'll be launching an appropriately themed t-shirt called All the best stuff is from Japan. The colourful design is great to show off your otaku side.

The design is launched at Hyper Japan and you'll be able to pre-order at a special price and collect it at the event.
