So we got another Title that was on the recent mystery boxes. i think pretty much every title that was in it is going to be in the deal of the week for the next few weeks.

The lack of detail (and time total) suggests the OVA's aren't included, not to mention that means it's not clear what masters are being used. Have to wait for the BBFC on this one to know for sure.
It's an interesting one because:
  • It's an Aniplex title, and so far no one has released the series on Blu-ray in the US & Australia. My speculation was that Aniplex of America was holding out for a Blu-ray Disc Box before they would release it to go along with their recent trend (and Aniplex of Japan has announced one for November 2020 with OVAs included).
  • In terms of the authoring, MVM will have to make their own. I don't know which master they'll use though - i.e. the TV Broadcast masters that Crunchyroll and Aniplex of America has for streaming, or the Uncensored Blu-rays from Japan.
To be honest, despite being a fan of the anime, I'm going to pass on this release.

MVM are potentially releasing something before anyone else, for dirt cheap, and we’re going to send them the message that a release like that doesn’t have demand?
I would rather wait for reviews and how Aniplex will handle theirs first. I'm in no rush for standard UK releases.

To be clear, I personally am not opposed to picking this up from them at some point (though, if its the TV masters then it be have to be on DEEP discount). Aniplex's releases are, in my opinion, WAY too expensive/Poor Value to even consider for me so i'm hoping for a good version all things considered. But the early bird is a definite miss (only way they could sell me is if the OVA's were included as that would have suggested the general path forward).

I bought it expecting AoA’s discs tbh so it having a low bitrate was a disappointing it is good that there is a cheaper option but yeah, especially as the last self authored AoA discs weren’t best bitrate I’m not holding much hope. @Mangaranga probably knows the actual bitrate as he checked the discs
