    100% agree its nice to see the UK getting the nicer version for a change. The US version is an absolute eyesore, I wouldn't want that on my shelf.

    I'm not sure £50 is damn expensive when you're £35-40 for MVM's barebones discs-in-an-Amaray set...

    That's just Volume 1 though. It only contains 5 episodes.

    While it is expensive, I might consider getting it (somewhere along the line... perhaps:confused:).
    I really like the box art, it would have been perfect were it not for the 'amp' and 'King Records' labels.

    It seems to be a copy of the Dynit release with subtitles in my native language (Dutch). :D Peppermint is probably working with Dybex, so it might have French audio+subs as well. Time to put the Funi release in the trashcan where it belongs.

    Was it that bad?

    My reaction was a bit hyperbolic, but I'm quite unhappy with the Funimation Blu-ray. Funimation DNR'd the video master to remove dust and damage, but in the process some detail has been erased, which is especially noticeable in scenes with a lot of shadow detail. After the DNR pass, they've added a 35mm grain plate to replace the erased grain. The end result is something that in my opinion doesn't look quite like 35mm film with a lot of compression issues. You can see a screenshot comparison with Anime Limited release here.

    Seeing as how the packaging is identical to the Dynit release, I'm really hoping Peppermint/Dybex are also using the Dynit encodes.

    Well, the italian release definitely was the first (non-japanese) release with a good video track. All the previous are flawed in some ways. It was extensively discussed on blu-ray.com with comparisons shots from the japanese release, AL's and FUNi's.
    Plus Dybex has (or had?) italian rights as well so it's highly possible reusing one's packaging was part of the deal.

    The hype is real.
