All titles in the list below have been tested & confirmed region free (well regions A & B at least).

If there are any mistakes in the list please let me know and I will correct it.

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood Part 2 is definitely A/B, I don't own Part 1 but I'm sure that it is as well.

I read somewhere that the recent reprint of FMA Brotherhood by Funimation has locked Parts 1 & 2 as well as included in the Blu-ray Collection Part 1

I think Funimation printed new Blu-ray discs for both collections, which is why all the discs are now locked.

Until I know for sure I will remove parts 1 & 2 from the list.

EDIT: Ouran High School Host Club BD is Region Free? Ordering that badboy!

Awesome thread!! :)
The Tsubasa ones mentioned are the Collected Memories set which covers both TV series and the movie(7-disc), and the OVA collection. Collected Memories is out-of-print now, in favour of the two separate ''SAVE'' TV series sets(3-disc each).

The Double Feature is probably region-free too though, at least on the Tsubasa side, as the same disc appears to be used for the Tsubasa movie in the Collected Memories set.

(If you're looking specifically for visual upgrades, the only parts of Tsubasa in native HD on Blu-ray are series 2, and the OVAs. The movie was made in native HD too, and has aired as such in Japan, but FUNi just upscaled an SD version :/.)

Good idea to create a master thread for this :)

Might I suggest consolidating multiple volumes of 1 series onto 1 line?

e.g. Dragon Ball Z Kai part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
or perhaps: Dragon Ball Z Kai part 1 - 8

This list is likely to get quite large so it might be good to establish some space saving at the start

I'm thinking about buying the Spice and Wolf Season 1&2 collection since it's a DVD/Blu-ray pack. I know about the Blu-rays being region A&B, but does anyone know if the DVD discs are region 2 compatible? owo

The DVDs in the Season 2 standalone release were regions 1 and 4, so I'd assume that'd be the same for this combo pack. Not sure about the DVDs for the first season though - if I had to guess, I'd say they probably wouldn't be region 2 compatible.

Received the collection yesterday and can confirm that the DVD’s of season 1 are region 1 only and season 2 are regions 1 & 4 only.

Darn, I figured as much. I don't suppose I have much hope for the DVD/Blu-ray combo pack of Ga Rei Zero either? :( I guess it's still worth it, since the separate seasons of Spice and Wolf from Manga are going for £17.99 and £22.17 on Amazon and the complete set is going for £34.32 on United Publications. :)

FUNimation's Shakugan no Shana Blu-ray is A/B - tested by me (Says only Region A on the box).

Thanks for the info Josh, will add season 1 of Shana to the list.

Just a note, the DVDs are region locked though.

I was just feeling curious while playing around with the DVD region while comparing the discs, thought it was worth trying it with the BD region changed too...and it worked.

Well, that's weird.

I've removed Shana from the list just to be safe.
