We would like to thank all our devoted customers for supporting the LTD anime and we are looking forward to when we start our second decade to many subsequent years of creating the best possible editions of Japanese animations on the market and connecting creators with recipients, which we care about.
Ten years is a pretty good run for a label such as Al, and while the team remains in place, it is sad to see their end of their independent run.
After the Plaion Anime Limited (and Manga UK bought by Funimation, and then the takeover of Crunchyroll by Sony), currently one independent anime label in Great Britain and Ireland remains.While consolidation is the name of the game, after all (as evidenced by the combination of Crunchy and Funi) you finish with one or two players, and this is never good to choose from.We can only hope that the new owners of anime Limited will allow them to remain the same individual label that they have always been.
