    I just don't know what the hold up is on the release. I've had the French release for like, 6 months now, with 100% functional English subtitles.

    It's Aniplex/Manga/Kazè hell would have to drop to absolute zero and Satan would have to invite God, Jesus and Buddha round to film an episode of Come Dine With Me topped off with a screening of Evangelion 4.0 before they stopped screwing customers :D

    £39.99 for all 12 episodes of Nisekoi Season 2 would be pushing it as it is, but split across two £39.99 sets? Yeah, that's ridiculous - especially when you can import both of the French blu-rays for around the price of one UK half.

    EDIT: Just checked. It would cost €47.10 (about £40) to import the two blu-ray volumes from Amazon France (before postage, which would only be about a fiver?). So you're essentially looking at "Buy 1 Get 1 Free" in relation to the UK price.

    Probably also worth noting that the French version is nicer than the UK version will likely be. The French version has a nice digipak, where as the UK (if it's like S1) will get cheap and thin cases.

    Anime-On-Line saves the day again. Season 2, Part 1 is currently available to pre-order there for £27.99 (£20.99 for DVD).

    @IncendiaryLemon - Digipak you say? Damn son. I need me some of that.

    @jaden550 Do you really need to go for the UK release? The french one looks so much nicer.

    Well, I had croissants for breakfast today and petit pans for lunch, so I may as well complete my French transformation...

    (Not even lying. That is what I ate - and dinner will no doubt be on a brioche bun).

    It's actually getting released? That took its time. I really hope there's an early bird to apologise for it being 9 months after the US release of the second series.

    I really want it to have an early bird so I can blind buy it.

    Do the french Nisekoi blu-rays have English subtitles? Their Amazon pages say they only have French subtitles and English dubbing, but I really want subtitles (I'm not a dub guy). I can't really see it in that pic, either, my eyesight isn't the best.

    There is no English dub for Nisekoi. The French sets have the French dub, French sub, and english sub.

    It does have English subs, and also Nisekoi doesn't have an English dub. The Amazon listing is just botched.

    Thanks guys, I'll buy the French releases of Season 2, then, when I'm able to. Thanks for the heads up!

    I'm sure the uk season 2 will quickly drop in price once its released and my OCD couldn't handle those upside down spines on my shelf so I'm happy to wait.
