Went for Vampire Bund even though I've never heard of it, since it's Shaft. Even if it turns out to be trash, a LE set for £16 is hard to pass up.

Delivery estimate is June-July though.

I'm tempted to get Knights of Sidonia: Battle for Planet Nine but I'm unsure if I'll be able to play it due to the geolocking (I am a noob). The only other recent Sentai release I have is this one....

If this one plays will Knights of Sidonia?

No worries, for starters do you have a console that plays Blu-rays? Like a PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4?

If yes, then it will play without any issues.

Appleseed Sentai Selects I haven't tested (because I own the original release which was region locked) but since it was released after November 2014 there is a chance that it's geolocked.

No PS3 or PS4 just an Xbox one. I've a Sony 790 region B player and a Toshiba multi-region player (which I bought off the forum here). £49 is a lot to gamble if I can't play it. Hmm, what to do

Its a geolocked title. So if you don't have a Playstation console that are country code set to America than you won't be able to watch the BDs without ripping them on a PC with a BD drive.

I think Xbox One was also confirmed to work with geolocked titles, I remember reading about it in the old version of the Region Free thread.
 
Yes please, very kind of you.
My friend has an Xbox One I can quickly try Sidonia S2 in it if you want
Just in case, I can confirm Engaged to the Unidentified doesn't work on the Xbox One.
Having just tested a bunch of Sentai Geolocked titles on my Xbone, it seems to be early Geolocked titles which cause problems.
Just for transparency sake I tested the following Geolocked discs.

PASS
- Ao Haru Ride
- Beyond the Boundary
- Children Who Chase Lost Voice (2016 Re-author)
- Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-Kun
- Golden Time Part 1
- Grisaia Season 1
- Haikyuu Part 1
- Haikyuu Part 2
- Knights of Sidonia Season 1
- Knights of Sidonia Season 2
- No Game No Life
- One Week Friends
- Persona 4 The Animation
- Shirobako Part 1
- Shirobako Part 2
- SNAFU
- SNAFU 2
- Tamako Market
- Tonari no Seki-kun
- Waiting in the Summer
- Watamote
- The World God Only Knows OVA Collection

FAIL
- Amagami SS+
- Chuunibyou Season 1
- Engaged to the Unidentified (Confirmed by Peachy)
- Little Busters Refrain
- Maid Sama
- Non Non Biyori Season 1
- The World God Only Knows Season 3

Given that the above failures were released between Jan 15 and March 15, I'd imagine titles from that period of time may cause issues. Further testing is needed though I suppose. Interestingly though, Watamote and Golden Time were released prior yet do not present an issue.

Went to see if there's an EB offer for Your Lie In April Part 2 and saw this one - Selector Infected WIXOSS for £34.99 (First 100 copies) on AL's webstore.

I don't think anyone mentioned it, but some standard Blu-ray players can also play geo-locked releases. I watch most of mine on a Region B Sony Blu-ray player, it says BDP S790 on the front so it might even be the same or similar to the player you have. I've watched a good number of Sentai releases on it, both geolocked and ones that need the older bypass method mentioned above. I'll have watched Amagami SS+, Engaged To The Unidentified and Non Non Biyori on that player so it seemingly doesn't have the apparent limitation of the XBox One.

I have yet to come across a blu-ray player that won't play geolocked titles myself.
