Unboxing: Time of Eve – The Movie (Standard Blu-ray) [UK]


After Pied Piper’s successful Kickstarter campaign in turning the ONA (Original-Net-Animation) Series Time of Eve into a movie and releasing it as a ‘Deluxe Edition’ Blu-ray set, which we will be unboxing next week, the company have now turned their attention to creating a more affordable standard edition version of the film; and today that’s what we are going to take a look.

Available to purchase from the Time of Eve Shop, and currently priced at $34.95 / £22.35, this standard edition release of the project contains a copy of the film, which is presented on in High Definition on a Blu-ray disc, a 33-Track Soundtrack CD and an 8-Page booklet featuring some interesting insights into the films production. Furthermore this ‘standard edition’ release features some minimalistic, but satisfactory, artwork all of which is housed inside a single slim-line Amaray Blu-ray case.


From the offset this standard edition Blu-ray release of Time of Eve: The Movie seems basic and minimalistic, as the front cover itself only features a single image of the two main characters and the films logo. This same minimalistic feel also carries over onto the disc artwork; as both discs feature the same pink logo and similar copyright logos. In hindsight if it wasn’t for the yellow BBFC logo you’d have to double check which disc is which; as they do look very similar. Amusingly the back cover features no stand-out artwork and instead opts to overwhelm the customer with a variety of informative text; for instance the CD’s entire track listing as well as the Blu-ray specifications (including a list of bonus materials) are presented – mind you important details such as audio and subtitle options, although present, are not entirely clear at a quick glance.

Interestingly the biggest surprise (for me) was the inclusion of both the soundtrack CD, which is also present in the Deluxe Edition, and an 8-Page booklet which gives a detailed overview of the films production, such as in-depth explanations from the director (Yasuhiro Yoshiura) and the Music Producer (Tohru Okada). Since this was the ‘standard’ release I wasn’t expecting either of this items being included so in retrospect you really are getting value for money; as the blu-ray disc in itself is packed full of bonus materials as well.


Pied Piper’s Standard Blu-ray release of Time of Eve: The Movie is anything but standard; it contains a feature length film (in both English & Japanese with multiple subtitle options) a wealth of on-disc bonus materials, a jam-packed soundtrack CD and an informative booklet. In reality the only thing standard about this release is the packaging as everything else is pretty much top-quality.

Time of Eve: The Movie (Standard Edition Blu-ray) is now available to purchase from the official Time of Eve shop for $34.95, which equates to around £22.35, excluding postage.
