Animatsu Entertainment’s latest Blu-ray release is non-other than the rock-music themed samurai show Bakumatsu Rock, otherwise known as Samurai Jam; and with that being said what can you expect to receive with this UK Blu-ray release; well we take a look in our latest unboxing.
It’s fair to assume that Animatsu Entertainment have taken the American release of this series and modified it for UK auidiences; as the artwork and packaging style is pretty much what you would expect from its US counterpart – other than the BBFC and Animatsu Entertainment logos. The outer packaging is as you’d expect it to be with colourful front artwork, featuring the entire cast, and the reverse detailing the synopsis of the show with more colourful artwork. So everything is just as you would expect it to be; or so you would assume.
The inside of the packaging wields nothing interesting; just a singular disc – which features all 12 episodes of the series and some minor bonus content – in Japanese with English subtitles. The disc artwork itself is pretty cool though, as it seens each of the main characters on. Speaking of the discs its both Region A and Region B compatible; so its safe to assume that Sentai Filmworks encoded the disc on behalf of Animatsu Entertainment. There is some ‘inside artwork’ to be had but all it showcases is episode listings and a singular piece of character artwork – nothing special of mesmerizing.
Overall the UK Blu-ray release of Samurai Jam: Bakumatsu Rock is simplistic and basic; but for what its worth it actually works and works pretty well. Samurai Jam: Bakumatsu Rock – The Complete Collection is now available on DVD and Blu-ray within the UK.
