With Anime Limited’s third and final instalment into the Kill La Kill series constantly being pushed back due to ‘undisclosed’ reasons we thought we would travel back-in-time and unboxing the first release of the series; namely their Collectors Edition Blu-ray release of Kill La Kill – Part 1.
Anime Limited’s release of Kill La Kill has always been special; not because the first print-run featured a 0.4 second audio sync issue on the fourth episode, which this set also featured, but because the amount of detail and care that went in with the packaging – but this can be said for all of Anime Limited’s collectors edition, and even, ultimate edition releases. So, if you haven’t picked up this set, here’s whats in-store.
The first part of the Kill la Kill Collectors Edition featured the first nine episodes of the series, in both English and Japanese, spread out across two blu-ray discs; in addition a storboard-styled-artbook filled with over 200-pages was included. In retrospect its not a lot of content, especially when you consider the £50 RRP asking price, however in other countries – such as American and Australia – the discs are sold seperately and more importantly don’t come with the artbook. When you realise this then even the RRP seems justified; but in my eyes its only for the die-hard fan.
Packaging-wise then its another special set by Anime Limited – with the discs themselves fitting inside a carded sleeve that slides alongside the artbook in a chipboard artbox. At first everything seems fine, and the chipboard box is quite sturdy, however if not careful the carded sleeve which holds the discs can easily become bent and damaged. In short Anime Limited’s Collectors Edition release of Kill La Kill – Part 1 is special; but its only for those who really (really) like the show and want to own a special piece of it.
