FLCL – The Complete Series was the second Blu-ray set to ever be released by MVM Entertainment and to some anime fans it came as a nice surprise with its unique story and characters; either way nearly a full year since it’s release i’ve managed to secure a copy and so today i’ll be taking a look at it.

Even though the Blu-ray of FLCL was only released last year MVM Entertainment have had the license for quite some time and as such we never received a a review sample but what i can say is that the set contains 6 episodes, all of which are in High Definition and in 4:3 aspect ratio, as well as a wealth of bonus content. In terms of “on disc materials” this Blu-ray release of FLCL is a huge success, but thats where the success ends.

To be frank this unboxing is terrible; the blu-ray sleeve is just a single image stretched out and while the front cover looks “ok” the back cover is just a disaster and feels like a hash job. For example not only are logos placed in random spots but there is no mention of the extensive extra bonus content – something which is sure to draw attention from fans such as myself. It’s not just the ‘outside artwork’ either, as the disc artwork is completely different to the outside packaging. The reason for this is simple, MVM Entertainment are using the discs created by Madman Entertainment in Australia – while this is perfectly fine the outer packaging should have been adjusted to match it. For instance the disc artwork is yellow and contains plenty of logos, meanwhile the outer packaging is mostly black and white – it’s completely different and doesn’t match-up.

Basically this Blu-ray release of FLCL is ideally for the fans and not for those who like outer-packaging; the on disc content is superb, its just the outside packaging that lets it all down, and you’ll see what i mean in our unboxing video. FLCL – The Complete Series is now available on both DVD and Blu-ray within the UK.
