MCM London Expo 2017 Day 1 Announcements

Author: Seb Reid

Seb has been an anime fan since the late 90s and is particularly fond of anything post-apocalyptic, amusing, catgirly, ecchi or containing exquisite aerial battles. Living in Leeds with his cats and living up the bachelor life, Seb enjoys whiling the nights away deep in a book, game or a damn good series. 

It has been a busy day at the first day of the MCM Expo 2017. Here is our news and announcement roundup.

All the Anime

  • Fairy Tail Dragon Cry is getting a home video release in 2018.
  • Sword Art Online, Ordinal Scale is getting a home video release in 2018.
