With Gosick coming out under the essentials label, what's the difference between that and the one that's out now? Is it just cheaply made but same discs?


Yeah so if you just want the show the releases make sense. I may actual get the Tanya one (that comes out in October) I could also get Gosick if I ever wanted to rewatch it.

A shame that Goemon’s Blood Spray is listed as DVD only, unless the Blu Ray is coming later?

Discotek releases the DVD versions a month after the Blu-ray is solicited for their new releases. In other words it's out next month.
Ah I see, must have missed the Blu Ray release date confirmation. Good to know for future reference.

Ha should have known that just as I completed my Hidamari Sketch collection that a set would come out with all of them, shame they still haven’t released the graduation OVAs.

There's a new update on The Island of Giant Insects which was supposed to be available back in June on Crunchyroll. Basically the one back in June was an OVA and while Crunchyroll screened it at their expo, there's a theatrical version scheduled for 2020 which I suspect will be the version that Crunchyroll will be using for their platform.
