    I'll give them till MCM to announce it. What region is the Senatai version?

    Region A.

    Shame that no good to me unless it plays on a ps4

    It should do. Sentai normally geo-locks to country code, rather than region locking to region code. For some reason PS4s are normally set to have US as their country code and so Sentai discs normally play.

    I can't talk about these specific discs, but it definitely worked for Space Brothers.

    Didn't you buy those Hunter x Hunter sets earlier? Those are Region A...

    If u don't have PS4 then u could just pick up Madmans version which was released a few weeks ago Australia BDs are the same region as the UK

    I don't believe this "geolocking" is a real thing. I can't find a bluray player in my house that doesn't play Sentai's "geolocked" blurays.

    Depends what title, really. Sentai's Chunibyo S1, for example, will not play on my Region Free BD player, no matter what region I put it on, yet will play on my PS4. There are some titles, such as Kiniro Mosaic S2, which seem to be straight up Region A/B, playing on my Region Free player no matter what region I set it to.

    Yeah, even my actual Japanese players bought in person in Tokyo play them. I think you can force them not to play if you deliberately set your locale to the UK but it's all very silly. Not that I'm going to complain.

  14. The strangest experience I've had with Sentai's geolocking is Engaged to the Unidentified playing on my PS4 but not the Region A Panasonic player I imported from Amazon.com o_O

    I haven't imported anything for a while. Are you telling me that even though I got a region free BD player specifically for imports it might not work for some newer Sentai releases? I suppose it's lucky I have a PS4 as my UK player, but that's a shady move to pull.

    Like I've done with Anime Ltd, here's a Mangatsu version. Baring in mind they have a huge backlog of titles, but I'm only listing the recent ones. A lot of the backlog has expired anyway due to the Funimation deal collapsed.

    I actually didn't know Manga had Umaru-chan. Hopefully they do a non deluxe edition priced release.

    intresting, Manga's liecence slate seems to be thin on the ground especially when you remove franchise shows.

    Jerome already confirmed same release model for Umaru-chan and School-Live! on twitter.
    Think I'll be importing Sentai's School-Live! and buying Manga's as well so I'm not a hypocrite.
