I shouldn’t get my hopes up but it got me thinking Prime Day is going to be great for anime/manga fans with all these consistent timing deals.

Garden of sinners is back in print (finally!): https://www.rightstu...Box-Set-Blu-ray

 

I still hate Aniplex.

So they have the gall to charge $250 AND not include a dub? Wow, Aniplex of America is either run but people who are insane, or really really dumb, or both

Aniplex: The anime you want at the prices we want.

Aniplex: Because we presume anime fans are all masochists who love sodomy.

Yeah... hope Netflix/Amazon or someone convinces them to make a dub. Really great series.

I ordered Gintama: Series Three Part One and Overlord S1 for about $28 each after the extra 20% off for Prime Day. 

 

While perusing Amazon UK (foolishly thinking my US prime membership meant something to the Queen), I found this for those of you that have been patiently waiting like I have:

 

Ghost in the Shell (region B) Complete series: 37.49 GBP ($49) after VAT removed - This contains both seasons.  Back when the US blu rays came out that they released a comment that they were not going to be using the US release as their source for the UK release.  If I remember correctly, they were pretty vocal about not liking the US release.  In short, this set should not have the closed caption subtitles and other issues from the US set.  Plus, it"s $50 for the pair so it's a pretty good deal anyway.

as a diehard ghost in the shell fan, the US blu ray release was a damn shame. I hope this one turns out better. the visuals on it were rock solid though(so hopefully they use the visuals as a base), but sadly the rest of the release was meh.

I did a little more research, and the UK release was confirmed to be based on the French one. It doesn't have that audio switching part and it has the correct subtitles for the Japanese track. Before this standard edition there was a Zavvi exclusive set for 100 GBP, and they mentioned that the standard edition will also correct some chapter stop issues from those previous discs as well.

It sounds like it will be the set I was looking for.

It's hard to be 100% sure because reviews on foreign products are hard to come by sometimes. Everything I've read though has indicated that it should have none of the audio/subtitle problems that the US set has. It should be good on both the English and Japanese Audio tracks.

fair enough.

 

thanks for the info again. looks like it should be a good release then. I will certainly have to keep an eye on it as I do love me some ghost in the shell. one of my favorite shows of all time. I just rewatched it for the first time in a long while and it holds up quite well.
