Unboxing: Sengoku Basara – The Last Party (Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack) [UK]

sengoku_basara_last_party_unboxing

It’s widely known that “Sengoku Basara” is one of Manga Entertainment’s unpopular releases, with the first season selling poorly on both Blu-ray and DVD, which is why the company was hesitant about releasing any more. Fast forward years into the future and the final ‘movie’ instalment into the anime series, entitled Sengoku Basara: The Last Party, is now here, and better yet its available in the UK on both Blu-ray and DVD.

Despite being rather unpopular I find Sengoku Basara to be a highly entertaining series, you just have to give it a chance. The series (and film) are both based upon Capcom’s “Sengoku Basara” game franchise – a franchise which has seen multiple versions released onto both the PS2 and PS3, with a game even reaching UK Shores under the title Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes. The game plays exactly like Tecmo Koei’s Dynasty Warriors franchise, however since an anime series is available I find the story easier to swallow, even if the anime hasn’t got a direction connection to the game(s) other than its characters. That being said both the series and game have received poor reception here in the UK, which considering how popular the Dynasty Warriors franchise is, it s rather surprising.

Anyway, back on track, the UK Blu-ray release of Sengoku Basara – The Last Party is a Combo Pack, meaning you receive both DVD and Blu-ray versions of the film, additionally both discs contain a variety of extra features. The story itself attempts to “wrap-up” the events that have happened previously in season 1 and season 2, so if you’ve never seen the series then i’d recommend avoiding the film for the time being.

Sengoku Basara – Season 1 and Sengoku Basara: The Last Party are both available on Blu-ray and DVD within the UK, while Sengoku Basara – Season 2 is only available on DVD. For those interested the US Release of Sengoku Basara – Season 2 is Region Free and plays fine on UK (PAL / Region B) Players.

    It is a shame that Sengoku Basara isn’t so popular, because I find it really entertaining and enjoyable. I thought Last Party was great. If only more people would give it a chance as you said!
