If Season two of Golden Kamuy is not getting an LE box from Funi, then I'll just Frankenstein the S2 discs into the Season 1 LE box, either swapping out cases for ones with additional hubs, or binning the DVDs, which I have no use for anyway. Problem solved.
Except you now have Season 3 to deal with.

Still, that's only 6 Blu-rays - easily will fit inside two BD cases in the LE box. And that's only if I even like Season 3...

Heh, Funi will probably release a CE for Season 3 of Kamuy - just to cover all the bases... :rolleyes:

Was thinking we wouldn't hear about new Discotek stuff until Otakon after they skipped over their usual time period each month to announce a new slate.

Very happy that we're finally getting Blood Spray of Goemon, I've put off watching the fansub version waiting for the eventual Discotek release and now that wait is close to an end.

They have said they still have loads to announce. And now finally my copy for twelve kingdoms has shipped.

Awesome that Nichijou will be available for region B, will still wait a bit to see if it gets a uk release so I won't have to deal with the uggly australian age rating thing on the cover but if it seems unlikely that we will get a uk release then it is way way better than nothing.

As for the US release the back of it says region A, from my understanding Funimation has the actual information of the region locks on the back of their blu-ray cases so I would assume this means it is only region A since the ones I have seen so far that are compatible with region B from Funimation has it written on the back.
 
I'm done waiting for UK releases of shows that I love. They never get released here, or if they do they are inferior formats, or years after everyone else. I've had the Australian Nichijou DVDs for over six years now. No one ever picked the show up here, same with Gosick, both of whic subsequently got US Blu-rays. Maybe Madman will release Gosick on BD as well.

Probably when it gets a classics/essentials release they will. But past 2/3 years with Gundam and all these funi stuff an a player has been near essential.

It's understandable. I'm waiting for Manga's Q4 line-up to be fully unveiled before I consider importing some titles.

Manga should probably think about releasing the Steins;Gate Film finally considering how well Zero is selling.

I think the LE has been subject to a really low print run...
My theory is that Amazon probably took a bulk of the stock which resulted in other retailers selling out fast. I believe this has been a cause for a number of Anime Ltd sets going 'out of print'.
