    Wait, what? How does importing something make someone a hypocrite? :S

    If I imported a Sentai release when Manga are doing a "Deluxe" edition, it would make me a hypocrite. So I'll have to buy both.

    Pokemon Movie 19 has popped up on Amazon on DVD and BD for a May 15th release. No release date parity with Germany this time, sadly. Hopefully Manga can at least manage to get the 5.1 audio track this time - Germany's release will no doubt have it as per usual.

    I wish they would release 5cm per Second on Bluray, I have all of Shinkai's other films on Bluray now apart from this :( Off the top of my head I know that Kazé released it on Bluray in Italy, so the original issue of ComixWave not allowing a UK Bluray release can't still be a problem.

    The reason there is no 5cm Blu-ray in English speaking territories is that they produced a Blu-ray in Japan called the "5cm Per Second Global Edition" which has several languages, including both the English dub and English subs. It is in a normal amaray case, but it has a pink box instead of blue. It can still be found on Amazon for about £60 through 3rd party sellers, or bought direct from Amazon Japan. I get that it's terrible as the only option though, since it's so expensive for what it is. If you're a super fan and just want to have everything on Blu-ray though, it is there as an option.

    Here's a link to it:

    5 Centimeters per Second: Global Edition 2007 Blu-ray Region Free English/Japanese...: DVD & Blu-ray

    For whatever reason they decided that only English speaking territories couldn't produce their own Blu-ray, probably because English is on the Global Edition. Kaze was able to get rights to their own one probably just because the languages they cater to weren't on the global edition. I don't believe this is going to change for English speaking territories though, so the Japan copy is probably the only way to get a Blu-ray in English.

    Isn't Discotek releasing 5cm or is it another Shinkai film I'm thinking of.

    FYI, Discotek recently released the film on Blu-ray and it's actually the best release of the film going. Looks as good as the Japanese BD and has three Lossless audio tracks (EN 2.0 & JP 4.0/2.0) versus the two lossy tracks on the JP BD (EN 2.0 and JP 4.0). Given that the disc itself was actually mastered way back in September, it wouldn't surprise me if the disc was actually the one intended to be included in Anime Limited's constantly delayed Shinkai Collection.

    Oh damn, it appears I was going off old information there. And now I need to import that. I love Discotek.

    Is there a reason why they didn't release Soul Eater NOT! on BD to begin with? I know it wasn't great (awful actually, or the few episodes I saw were anyway) but I would have thought a BD would be viable.

    I'll be curious to see what Kaze do with OPM as unlike the rest it's a show I'd like to own.

    Why not just bring Soul Eater out on BD as well? Surely that's more important. :(

    Seems Amazon currently have the dvd version of SAO season 1 mispriced at £9.99

    I'm interested in that One Punch Man set. Even though its Kaze it looks nice. I will wait and see what the SAO box set looks like before I buy it.
  19. Lord Bacchus

    Lord Bacchus Dandy Guy, in Space

    Considering it was originally released in four standard boxes, I would assume SAO is just a barebones release.

    I only have the DVD sets at the moment so it would still be an upgrade for me
