Madman Entertainment Open Pre-Orders for December 2016 Anime Release Slate

-

Last month, Australian anime publisher Madman Entertainment opened up pre-orders for their November 2016 release slate. In addition to a number of new releases, the company seemed to be gearing up for the Christmas season, with complete season collections of hit shows (Eg. Attack on Titan) and pricey yet extensive collections for hit shows such as Dragon Ball Z.

The question some may have is… what do they have in store for December – especially with Christmas around the corner. With the turn of the month, Madman Entertainment have opened their last batch of pre-orders for 2016. On offer will be a range of titles, including some pricey collections which have seemingly been delayed from November, a range of new titles, and a Blu-ray collection for an anime which is celebrating its 10th Anniversary. All of these items can now be pre-ordered via the official Madman Entertainment website, or your local anime retailer.

You can read more about their entire December 2016 anime release slate below:

But are they ready to give up on their dreams just yet? No way! Because while anime may come from inspiration, in the end it’s the ones who’re willing to put in the perspiration that make their dreams real in Shirobako!
