It’s not them being actively malicious. It’s just the UK market being an afterthought for any release that mirrors a Funi US release. They just ship over the materials from the US CE print run for a handful of UK copies and shove the UK standard edition inside. Then they can say they did it. We don’t need any CE exclusive artwork on the release; that would require printing more than just the standard edition covers, and they just don’t care.Comment Removed by User said:Deleted
Hero is Overpowered CE has soundtrack CDs in the bluray keepcase. The standard edition doesn’t. The cover for both is identical down to the standard edition product code, not mentioning the soundtrack CDs at all, the cover is just shoved in a case with more disc trays. Anything to do the bare minimum.
At least UK specific CEs seem to have slightly better print runs, because the UK team have to design and actually order the product, it’s not just “leftover” US components. But the discs are susceptible to being whatever ancient blurays Madman (owned by Sony) have lying around because they’re bought and paid for. Those K-On! Discs that couldn’t be used a decade ago because they were incompatible with UK players? Abra-ca-*******-dabra, they now work, because Sentai’s new discs would cost money and those discs were already on hand at Madman.
I hate Funimation.
