Is it necessary to watch Sound Euphonium to understand what Liz and the Blue Bird is about?
As IncendiaryLemon says, it isn't needed in order to understand the film and I think it holds up pretty good on its own. That being said, if you pay close attention you can deduce certain things regarding the events in the two seasons of Sound! Euphonium (so in that sense it "spoils" certain things a bit).

So if you can, I would still suggest watching Sound! season 1 and 2 first and then the movie. They're all great works and well worth a watch if you ask me. Liz and the Blue Bird in particular managed to exceed my expectations.

Is this a legit release of the show? - it's even listed on blu-ray.com
It's also sold by Amazon themselves.
Yes that's the French DVD release by the French distributor Dybex, who still has the rights for. Although I believe one of the European distributors said that they were having issues trying to renew it.

Would you know how the quality is compared to, say the UK single releases?

Edit: Which reminds me, is it burned in subs?

I wouldn't know about the quality to be honest, outside of the fact that it's PAL and has French/Japanese audio with French subtitles. Might be worth asking some of the French users on here as they may be able to help.

@NormanicGrav : No, the Dybex-license expired several years ago.
But its quite common to find cheap overstock and leftovers from old French releases, as the DVD sales in France collapsed during the last years.

Even the old Nicky Larson DVD set (Beez license exxpired 2012 or 2013) ist still on rank 3 of Anime-bestsellers on Amazon, caused by the massive overstock.

Note that https://www.anime-store.fr/as/Evangelion-Neon-Genesis-Integrale-Platinum-Coffret-DVD-Livret-Edition-Gold-VOSTFRVF-produit-video-5129.html sells them even cheaper (Shipping to Denmark: from 7.42€ depending on weight)

Can Burst Angel be recommended? - Most reviews says it's great or trash, no inbetween.
Is it a CG anime? Is it a mecha? - can't find much about it.

EDIT: CG not GC wth...

hmm... I got the DVD but haven't gone to watch it again, it's a weird beast though. it tries to look like a futuristic western, sort of. every so often the main cast will have to use the mech (some of the critters they fight are very mech - like, but are unmanned more often than not) it takes a while to get a proper narrative on track, but once it does it kind of makes sense I guess?

it's really a sort of near future dystopia/western/mecha/gangsta sort of thing, if you like the larger than life badasses you might like Jo, like 90% of what she does is look for a fight, the other 10% is watching banned horror films

Thanks for the response! - hmm, I've watched some clips on YT, but it looks alright I think lol.. would you say it's worth trying out for £7?
 
Nice, would you know if there's any difference between the two US releases?
there's two of them? I got what MVM sold, sorry I don't know if there's any difference between any versions, the complete one I got has the OAV that looks into Jo's and Meg's past, so I doubt a complete collection cuts anything out

There's two US blu-ray releases, one that is the original release, then a Anime Classics release. I think it's the same discs, FUNi has done the same with a bunch of other shows.

And now another release with the new Classics/Essentials.
Did MVM do a UK blu-ray release?
 
So I’m gonna put up a sales thread before long, just wondering if a few things are worth putting in;
Galaxy s7 (it’s gotten pretty slow and unresponsive with physical buttons)
Soundblaster Xz ( when’s the last time anyone used a sound card?)
Excel saga complete manga, English - 27 volumes (not that popular among the members here)

Of course, all my volumes of Berserk would be on there too, a good haul for someone not looking for the new format
