As our spies were beginning to flag from the weekends festivities (read: drinking too much red wine while recording the podcast), during the final throes of Sunday’s MCM London Comic Con - at the late late hour of 4pm - Anime Limited snuck out another couple of license announcements during their final panel of the weekend.

First up is the license rescue of classic (and utterly bonkers) series Revolutionary Girl Utena, which will be getting a standard release as well as receiving the Collector's edition treatment. The releases should hit retailer shelves sometime in 2018.

Synopsis: "Never lose that strength or nobility, even when you grow up." When Utena was just a child and in the depths of sorrow, she found salvation in those words. They were the words of a prince, who wrapped her in his rosescented embrace and bestowed upon her both a ring and the promise that it would lead her to him again. She never forgot the encounter. In fact, she was so impressed that she aspired to be like the prince and also help those in need. Now a spirited teenager, Utena attends the prestigious Ohtori Academy. However, her strong sense of chivalry soon places her at odds with the school's student council and thrusts her into a series of mysterious and dangerous duels against its members.

Also announced was Junjo Romantica which will be released on blu-ray sometime in 2018.

Synopsis: Three very different couples caught up in a storm of pure romance!

Romantica: Misaki is struggling to prepare for his college entrance exams, so his brother arranges for a private tutor. But Misaki’s nightmare is just beginning when his tutor, Usami, comes on to him! How will Misaki ever manage to pass his exam?

Egoist: Just when Kamijou’s life is at its lowest, he has a chance meeting with a man who never lets anything hold him back: Nowaki. His name means "typhoon," and he’s about to take Kamijou on a whirlwind ride that will turn everything upsidedown.

Terrorist: Miyagi always seems to shrug off the cares of the world with a joke and a smile. But even he has problems, although he doesn't let them show. Foremost is Shinobu, a relentless young man who’s adamant that they’re destined to be together.

And that's all for this year's MCM London Comic Con, tune in next time for more.
