Today Madman has announced that in conjunction with Studio Gonzo, they will be holding the Australian premiere of LAST EXILE – Fam, The Silver Wing at the Manifest Convention later this month on the 26th. What makes this such big news is that this premiere will be over 1 month before it even hits Japanese screens.
This is an absolutely huge announcement for Australian anime fans as it shows how far the industry in Australia has progressed. To think that Australia would be the place to hold a premiere of a yet to be released in Japan title of this high calibre, is mind boggling.
Madman’s Tim Anderson had the following to say regarding this announcement:
“Madman Entertainment are extremely proud to be working with Gonzo and Manifest to be bringing Australian fans such a rare opportunity to see a brand new anime show, especially of such a high calibre, before it even airs in Japan”
To be apart of Australian anime industry history, make sure you find your way to Manifest 2011 on the 26th of August. This is definitely something you do not want to miss out on.
Alongside this huge announcement, Madman announced they had licensed the series for distribution throughout Australia and New Zealand.
