Unboxing: Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc V – Season 1 Volume 1 (Blu-ray) [USA]


With Manga Entertainment UK continuiously working with 4K Media to get older generations of Yu-Gi-Oh! Anime series out to the UK fanbase I opted to ‘look over the pond’ and see what the American division of 4K Media were up to with their Yu-Gi-Oh! releases; and interestingly enough I discovered that they had release Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc V, which is of course the latest anime entry into the franchise, on Blu-ray. As such in our latest unboxing feature we will be taking a look at the American Blu-ray release of Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc V – Season 1 Volume 1.

Originally released on the 6th September 2016 this Blu-ray release of Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc V – Season 1 Volume 1 contains the first 24 episodes of the series in English and full 1080p. Just like with previous DVD only releases each disc will display a main menu with each episode listed individually with a PLAY ALL button at the bottom; but more importantly their are no supplementary contents – its just the episodes on a disc with minimalistic artwork and presentation.


Of course it’s not all doom and gloom; the front cover and disc artwork for each Blu-ray disc offers – in my eyes at least – some great character key artwork and considering it’s price (can be picked up for less than £20) it’s not a bad price point either. Unfortunately however this Blu-ray release of Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc V – Season 1 Volume 1 is Region Locked (as we pointed out earlier in the year); so those hoping to play this set on a UK Blu-ray player will not be able to; so hopefully Manga UK will be able to release this series in the near future as well.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc V – Season 1 Volume 1 is now available on Blu-ray (and DVD) within America; but for those wanting a closer look at this set then you can do in our unboxing video below.
