Extras: 32p booklet, 4p manga from the original character designer/manga adaption artist, storyboard of episode 1, audio commentary, non-credit OP/ED and some ticket for some event in October.
And episode 1.
The event ticket is pretty worhtless outside of japan, I guess, but the extras sound decent enough. Especially the
storyboard does catch my eye to say the least. While it doesn't come as a surprise that it's a 11episode series on a 6 volume release (Zankyou no Terror was the same), I was hoping though they would shove the 1 episode release onto the last (weakest) episode, as was the case with ZnT (from which I ended up getting just volume 1 jp with the storyboard as AL's UE contained pretty much any of the other booklet extra content.)
Seems also like volume 2-6 will come along with two character songs and an "unreleased tracks soundtrack". Going by the listing for volume 2 that's quite a number of tracks. And there I was wondering where the hell a release date of an OST II was waiting for. So that means then, I'll have to wait until november until I get the episode 10 leak track and the Sarazanmai no Uta x Kawauso-iya track from the last episode with no sfx and dialogues? ._.
(Also doesn't look like the already OST itself is being spread over the volumes, so screw consistency, if someone wanted the complete OST in a shelf next to each other, huh?)
October 9th sees the release of the 4K restoration of The Tale of the White Serpent aka The White Snake Enchantress aka Hakujaden. Fingers crossed that one of the UK / US distributors picked it up in Cannes...
