Manga UK Issues Product Recall on High School DxD BoRN Blu-Ray & DVD Sets

After several months of delays the UK re-release of High School DxD BoRN, otherwise known as Season 3 of the franchise, had arrived but sadly that news is short lived as Manga Entertainment UK have now issued a product recall for both DVD and Blu-Ray versions of the series.

As explained by the distributor those who have purchased, and received, either the Blu-Ray or DVD version of the set are advised to return it to the point of purchase (i.e. the retailer) as soon as possible to receive a refund (or if possible await for correct stock to arrive). The reason for this product recall is not due to a technical issue with the product and instead relates to the incorrect BBFC rating being used.

In this case Manga Entertainment’s release has 15 rating being used (as the series was originally rated 15 by the BBFC when released by FUNimation via Anime Limited) but Manga Entertainment’s re-release has been rated 18 by the BBFC and thus should include the 18 rating on both the discs and packaging. It’s a very unique situation and once again illustrates that the BBFC rating procedure can produce varied ratings for the same product.

Regardless of the rating received full details on how to return the product can be found listed below:

Unfortunately, due to a production error on our February 22 release of High School DxD Season 3 across DVD & Blu-ray, we must issue a product recall. All copies must be returned to their point of purchase.

Please note that this issue is related to print and packaging only, and there are no technical issues with any on-disc content.

How to do this:
Contact your retailer and arrange a return with them. New stock will be available within 4-6 weeks.

If you have purchased your copy from www.mangauk.com, please email us at pressuk@funimation.com by 5pm on Friday 12th March 2021 to apply for a free returns label. You will need to provide your full name, mailing address, contact number and order number.

If you have purchased your copy elsewhere, please contact the retailer directly.

Naturally those wishing to keep hold of the set can do so, at this point it could even be considered a rare item, but either way it is another interesting situation that High School DxD has found itself within.
