    The distributor have confirmed that they currently only have digital rights for The Heroic Legend of Arslan, although they would be interested in picking up home video rights if possible.

      Given this move [Universal Pictures releasing Seraph of the End directly in the UK], we'll also be keeping our eyes peeled for a similar strategy with The Heroic Legend of Arslan, another Universal Pictures show recently simulcast via Anime Limited in the UK. Indeed, to that end Manga Entertainment's Jerome Mazandarani has commented on Twitter that "Universal holds the rights to all of their Japanese anime productions and will be self-distributing them moving forwards".

        Universal UK having home video rights to Arslan confirmed. July 4th release date and premium bonus items confirmed as well.

        http://www.uk-anime.net/newsitem/Uni...o_release.html

        Following on from our story breaking the news of Universal Pictures' plans to release Seraph of the End's first season as a Collector's Edition this May, we now have some exclusive news on the company's plans for another property.
        That title isthe first series of The Heroic Legend of Arslan, Liden Films' 2015 anime adaptation of Hiromu Arakawa's manga itself based upon a novel series by Yoshiki Tanaka.
        The twenty-five episode series will be released across two Collector's Edition volumes, the first of which is scheduled for a 4th July 2016 release on both DVD and Blu-ray. The first half of the series will be shipped on each format complete with a collector's book (probably totally around 70-80 pages), and with other physical bonus materials planned including a map of the world depicted within the series, art cards and a shogi-esque board game.
        The second half of the series will then follow in a similar Collector's Edition form later in the year, most likely around December 2016, with the second season of Seraph of the End likely to appear in a similar timeframe. It's also fair to say that this isn't the last we're likely to see of Universal Pictures' entry into the UK market, with other titles yet to be confirmed but currently in planning.
        Watch this space, as we're likely to have more news about these and future releases as we move through 2016!

                  More details and a change of date, via UKA:
                  http://www.uk-anime.net/newsitem/The..._revealed.html
                  a lengthier approval process has caused the date for this release to be shifted somewhat from its original date of July 4th to a new release date of Monday 25th July 2016.
                  As per their Seraph of the End release, this edition ships in a rigid case with a two-disc Digibook for both DVD and Blu-ray editions, along with an English translated 80-page art book compiling content from the Japanese home video release, a set of art cards (12 in this release), and a quartet of character trading cards. On top of this, also included here is a map of the world depicted within the series, and also a shogi-esque board game with both board and playing pieces.

                    This will be followed later in the month with The Heroic Legend of Arslan Season 1 Part 2 on Monday, 26th December - both DVD and Blu-ray Collector's Editions will ship with a hefty 100-page "flipper" art book featuring a visual guide and character sketch book, character cards, 12 art cards and adouble-sided poster.

                    In addition to all this, both of these December releases will also have a special fifth character card produced, featuring Ferid Bathory for Seraph of the End and Hilmes for The Heroic Legend of Arslan - these additional cards won't ship directly with the products themselves but will instead be strictly limited promotional items offered at conventions and/or as pre-order bonuses. More details will follow as to how to get hold of these exclusive items.
