All The Anime Clarify’s What To Expect From The “Ultimate Edition” of Gurren Lagann


Ever since All The Anime, also known as Anime Limited, unveiled the “Ultimate Edition” of Gurren Lagann on Blu-ray many fans have been asking “what to expect” from this relatively pricey release. Well today All The Anime hopes to address these questions as they have released more details, including a Q&A on their site, about what to expect from this set.

So first off it will comprise of:

  • A rigid artbox think same style of material as Cowboy Bebop’s was made of – but bigger.
  • Nice Digipack inside – to hold all 6 discs.  Artwork  TBC.
  • A hardback A5 artbook to fit inside the box – currently the page count was set at 50 – see below for more info though.
  • Only 2,000 will be printed!   You’ll get an artcard inside certifying the number in the release you have got :).

What’s on the discs though?:

  • Episodes 1 -27 of the TV series, with English dub and subtitles over 4 BD50s
  • Movie 1: Childhood’s End with English subtitles, as it was never dubbed in the USA sadly, BD25 or 50 TBC!
  • Movie 2: The Lights in the Sky are Stars with English subtitles, as it was never dubbed in the USA sadly, BD25 or 50 TBC!
  • Parallel Works – Complete, but will be split in half as everywhere else, half on Movie 1′s BD, the other on Movie 2. 
  • Video extras – Whatever we can get our hands on, we’re negotiating now but it turns out the reason a bunch of extras on the US import from Japan weren’t translated was they are exclusive for the domestic release we gather.  Meaning we may not be allowed to use them on our

Basically the “Ultimate Edition” is a Limited Run of the Gurren Lagann collection, with both the TV Series & Movies being included as well as a variety of bonuses, such as the Parallel Works OVA Collection. To make this set “extra special” it will feature exclusive content that will not be released in feature versions of this series.

Despite having a £149.99 SRP (Suggest Retail price) Amazon UK are currently listing this set for £84.27, which is nearly half the ‘retail price’ meanwhile Anime-On-Line is listing the set for £111.99, so if you shop around you may be able to get this “limited-time-only” release for half of the asking price.

The Ultimate Edition of Gurren Lagann, which will only be released on Blu-ray, will ship during June 2014 – meanwhile the standalone DVD and Blu-ray sets will be released during October 2014.

    What magic are you doing with the verb clarify? Clarifies will do.

    Oh, on a side note. I import BDs from the US now and then. Do you like me to check ’em for region compatibility if they’re not already here?

      Oops, I was in a bit of a rush.

      The choice is yours if you want to submit titles for me to place onto the site, but i’ll need to see proof (if its not marked Region B on the back of the box) and an explanation if any tricks were used (such as the title search method).
