Ten years is a reasonably good run for a label like AL, and whereas the group is staying put, it is unhappy to see them finish their indie streak.
With Plaion shopping for out Anime Restricted (and Manga UK being purchased by Funimation, adopted by Sony’s acquisition of Crunchyroll), there now stays a single impartial anime label within the UK and Eire. Whereas consolidation is the secret, ultimately (as evidenced by Crunchy and FUNI merging) you find yourself with one or two gamers and that is by no means good for selection. We are able to solely hope that Anime Restricted’s new homeowners enable them to stay the identical maverick label they’ve all the time been.
