Unboxing: Guilty Crown – Part 2 (Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack) [USA]


As you may have seen already Guilty Crown – Part 1 is readily available on Blu-ray (and DVD) within the UK, however with Part 2 not being available until April 2014 (at the earliest) I decided to take a dip into the US Version and see what that has to offer, something we shall see in the unboxing video for Guilty Crown – Part 2.

Just like with all FUNimation based releases Guilty Crown – Part 2 is a Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack release, meaning for a single price you receive both the Blu-ray and DVD versions of the series, as opposed to our UK releases which only include one format. Unfortunately don’t celebrate just yet as both the Blu-ray and DVD are Region Locked, meaning they can only be played on American (Region 1/A) Players.

This second instalment follows the same pattern laid out by the previous US, UK and Australian releases, whereby 2 Discs cover the content of the second half – in this case 11 episodes and a whole host of extra features, most of which I hope remain present on the upcoming UK Release. Unlike the previous Part 1 instalment the box features a more “darker” tone and to some may look odd on the shelf with different styled artwork next to each other, but both are of high quality.


The discs themselves offer an odd ‘lightscribed’ design, similar to that of Sword Art Online – Part 1,  but luckily the Blu-ray and DVDs are of different colour – so it is easy to distinguish between them on which disc is the version you want to watch, which in my case is the Blu-ray.

This US Release of Guilty Crown – Part 2  is everything you’d expect from a FUNimation release, a detailed and clean artwork on both the inside and outside of the case with a carded slip case to go with it. While the discs contain “questionable” style of design the content is what’s important and it is top notch quality (visual and extras) so I only hope that the UK release by Manga UK contains the same type of content and improves upon the disc artwork, but only time will tell.

Guilty Crown Part 2 (Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack) is now available within America, while a UK Blu-ray (and DVD version) is expected for release during April 2014.
