iirc last time i asked manga before funimation gobbled them up, they said they didn't have the license to Saikano anymore so i guess there could be some hope in it being brought over, only problem is i guess the blu-ray release won't have the 2 OVAs

Manga's DVD release of She, The Ultimate Weapon was terrible (non-anamorphic letterboxed), so that's a definite upgrade for me.

was this both releases? i'm sure i remember the set with the slim cases in a box being widescreen, i know the mangaforce dvds i have still are letterboxed tho

I have the Box version in 4 slim cases, that is the other release and it 16:9, screenshot of the picture when in full screen on a 1920x1080 resolution, so I'm pretty sure that means it still non-anamorphic letterboxed (but not entierly up to speed on the exact term)

Rightstuf just sent out notification today that the Steelbook release of Interspecies Reviewers coming out on 7 December will now include the OST. The product page has also been updated. Lol, that'll be a real banger! 😁

I haven't seen it but I gotta respect them for going all out with this release (I love OST CDs) 😅 🤣 😛👍

Yes, I'm a big fan of OST CDs, especially for anime, the music is generally so very good. Although, the music for this is going to be a bit different than most anime, with what I remember from my viewing. Some silly, tongue-in-cheek stuff - at least with the OP and ED anyway, lol.

I'm in for:

Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World LE
Fire Force Season 2 Part 2 LE
Darling in the Franxx Steelbook (Already on pre-order - Best Buy Exclusive)

IWGP and Bungo and Alchemist are total unknowns to me, will have to check them out first.

If Haibane Renmei is the same crappy upscale as the JP Blu-ray that looks worse than the DVDs, then I'll most likely pass on that. The image is also not showing any slipcover for it.
 

Girls with Guns

Dragon Knight
Ah, ok - so it will probably be the same ugly upscale. I haven't actually seen the upscale, and I really wanted to buy the JP release a few years ago, because digipak - but the PQ for that was slammed so bad, I didn't get it.
