FUNimation UK to Release Fixed K-ON! Complete Collection Limited Edition this November

FUNimation UK have taken to social media to reveal that a ‘fixed’ version of the K-ON! Complete Collection Limited Edition that was released, and later recalled, earlier in the year will be released on the 15th November 2021.

The original K-ON! Complete Collection Limited Edition release, of which saw the both TV Series and the Movie inside a single set with collectable content, was faulty due to unusual picture quality concerns during some of the episodes. In this case selective episodes, at set points, would (depending on the player) display encoding issues or skip the frames entirely, as reported here.

FUNimation UK acknowledged the issues and requested customers to return the product to their place of purchase for a refund. It was uncertain if FUNimation UK would fix the issues, but it was suggested; however the company did not offer a replacement scheme. Fast-forward several weeks and now FUNimation UK will re-release the ‘fixed’ set on 15th November 2021.

Judging from the beauty shots, which look to be the same as the original release, it looks like it will use the same number of discs and presentation style as the original release; of which we also another concern by fans. The disc themselves were based off of older disc masters produced by Bandai rather than the newer Sentai Filmwork masters. Additionally the packaging style, which was carded slots, also presented people with concerns over scratching the discs.

K-ON! Complete Collection Limited Edition [Fixed Release] is due for release on the 15th November 2021 and will be available to pre-order from all of the usual retailers.
