I reckon it's probably an oversight, maybe they thought the dub they had was the UK one. Discotek managed to get everything sorted for their release without issue twice (they released it on DVD years ago and a few months back on Blu-ray) so I don't think it's a rights issue.I preordered this but didn’t realise the UK dub and extras weren’t on it. This is very poor show for Manga. Was this an oversight I wonder, or just laziness? Surely there can‘t be rights issues with the dub, at least?
I think it’s a Manga don’t give a **** issue. Discotek actually care about their releases, Manga just do the bare minimum.I reckon it's probably an oversight, maybe they thought the dub they had was the UK one.

This. Manga have the most contempt for their customers of any company I've dealt with. They simply do not care and only want to put the cheapest product for the most money out. Now Funimation own them things are better tbf as we now get the US collectors editions.I think it’s a Manga don’t give a **** issue.

Well they had to re-rate the film due to Wicked City being cut in the past, but I agree that they should have just used the Discotek discs, granted timing might be the reason why.Surely it couldn't have been cheaper to author their own discs rather than pay BBFC fees for the three language tracks and those extras? I'm struggling to think of another reason why they wouldn't just have used Discotek's discs. And why Streamline's dub over their own!?
Whatever the reason, this is really disappointing.
I haven't heard anything to indicate that they've been cut, but this release doesn't have the Wicked City English dub produced by Manga UK - only the American one produced by Streamline, if that bothers you.Just joined the site
Really thinking of buying Wicked City & Demon City blu rays
The site has stated the former as uncut and the latter in its original form
Are both completely uncut?
That’s what I meanI want to say that Demon City was never actually cut on its original release, as it's a much tamer film, but I couldn't actually swear to that.
Just read about the English dub for Wicked City on movie censorship site and yepThat’s what I mean
No one really knows - completely uncut is fine by me as I don’t buy cut dvds/blu rays
Well I do have Urotsukidoji- Hell On Earth dvds and most are censored by darker scenes
I’m not bothered about the English dub- I have a lot of live action foreign films w/English subtitles anyway
