Like the look of the collectors set, but at just short of £60 for half a season, it's a clear no from me.
Would have much rather Manga released FUNi's Franxx CE...
I agree £60 is dear but AOL have it for £44.99 and mangaUK just confirmed no CE for franxx :/

I don't know if these already reached the UK, but recently several fake "Manga Video" DVDs appeared at varius online marketplaces on the continent.

How to spot them:
- old "Manga Video" Logo, (some?) even with VHS-era text "An Island International Company" on the back
- no BBFC printed, but stating "Region 2" PAL (some have FSK-stickers)
- old titles where the license of Manga Entertainment expired ages ago (or never existed)
- DVD only

Affected titles include, but aren't necessarily limited to: Battle Angel (Alita), Plastic Little, Venus Wars, Royal Space Force (Wings of Honneamise).

These fakes are usually priced much higher than the usual malaysian fakes and look way more professional.

I think £44.99 on AOL seems pretty nice for CE of part one of MHA season 3 especially considering that the box is meant to house part two as well. Though I do think it will look rather odd on the shelf considering season 2 have not had a CE, having CE of season 1 and 3 while having SE for season 2 will just look really odd.

The tweet after that it was a fine encode and I can read those subs but I’ll only go standard instead of steelbook.

But DBS.... ifs self encode and it spells Freeza wrong yes that’s a cancel

That’s why I didn’t question JoJo also no SC yet suggests maybe it didn’t do well but no idea. I thought 5 cm would last until Shinkai’s new film. Luckily my local CEX has it so I’ll run in and grab it tomorrow morning.

I know not everyone is region free, but Manga's disc is the exact same as Discotek's American release, which itself is a 1:1 clone of the Japanese release in regards to its video transfer.

..I don't understand how either of those are OOP already. It can't of been that long since they were released.
