Thanks for the pictures/unboxing video. I don't actually have a huge issue with the texture of the box as a concept, but your picture does make it look like it's suffering from banding
More worrying is that inlet tray, which based on the video is giving me a flashbacks to AL's disastrous Gurren Lagann UE box from years past. Obviously, the tray itself isn't actually falling apart, but those untreated surfaces look likely to tear and scuff easily, in addition to the potential loose disk situation. The bright orange also doesn't help, given that it reminds me of Funimation's case for Eva 2.22, which easily peeled off like paint, although in this situation that's probably an unfair comparison. Still, I hope the UK release uses better materials.
I agree, but my Box even has the AL and Madman logos printed on it, so I assume you will receive the same quality. It's also visible in the first unboxing. (min 3:22)
Edit: Sorry I read that wrong. The German in me took your banding comment a little too seriously
