Anime expert Jonathan Clements has just updated his website revealing that The Anime Encylopedia will have a third edition and is schedule for publication in December 2014.

The popular book written by Jonathan Clements and Helen McCarthy has been expanded with over 1,000 new entries, over 4,000 updates and corrections. This book is one of those amazing multiple purpose references. If you're an anime fan you should own a copy. If you're an academic it's essential. If you're running a website dedicated to news for fans of Japan (just like this one), you'll already have the first and second editions and regularly use them to fact check and research, so you'll be keen to get your hands on the third edition.

You can pre-order the book from Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com. Remember that Amazon's pre-order price promise means you'll also pay the lowest price offered by Amazon, so if the price dips between now and when it's released, you'll only pay the lowest price.

We've been told that Attack on Titan Part 1 will be coming to DVD, Blu-ray and as a Blu-ray Deluxe Collector's Edition package on 15th September 2014. Part 1 will include episodes 1-12 of the series.

We interviewed WIT Studio the company behind the Attack on Titan anime at the October 2013 MCM London Comic Con.

For UK anime fans who can't wait, you can always watch it (legally) on Crunchyroll.

You can pre-order the Attack on Titan blu-ray or DVD from Amazon UK.

Pirate Anime FAQ Updated

Date: 2014 April 6th Sunday [10:27] | Posted By: Joe

The Pirate Anime FAQ is regarded as essential reading. We've just done a minor update adding a section about Anime Conventions and similar events to it. Geeky events like this are a great place to buy stuff from, but we urge caution as some will have excellent policies in place to stop dealers from selling pirate goods. Other events we are aware of however will not have any policy or if they do not enforce it. Often their concern is if they've sold enough tables to make a good profit. This does not just apply to small events. Bigger events also have this problem too.
