Welcome to “Anime Blu-ray UK”, a relatively small, but ever growing, website founded by anime fan & gamer Scott Emsen, also known as “Emo185″ on Twitter.

The purpose of this website is to share information of upcoming Anime, Manga, Light Novel and game releases in the UK, such as news blasts and reviews, as well as show you which non-UK Blu-rays work in the UK and where you can buy them from.

What is Region Coding?:

Much like DVD’s, Blu-ray disc’s and blu-ray players have “region encoding” implied on them, meaning that only the correct region disc will work in your player. If you purchased your PS3 / Blu-ray player from within the UK then it should be a REGION B Player, however if not it could be one of three different regions (as shown below).

Region A = America & Canada
Region B = UK & Europe
Region C = Asia

To Check which region your player is you could either consult your manual or check the back of the machine, as most blu-ray players list what region the machine is on the back.

Some distributors make the disc’s REGION FREE, so these disc’s will work in any part of the world, this usually happens when the disc is released worldwide within the same week or if the distributor deciedes to release it this way.

Most Blu-ray disc’s however are REGION LOCKED, espically anime blu-ray discs, but this blog will show you which Anime Blu-rays will work in the UK.

    You’ve recently added a lot of posts where Blu-Ray’s can be made to work by changing the country on the PS3 to the USA. However – I haven’t been able to track down exactly where to do this and google searches either come back with the system language or dictionary type settings or say it can’t be done… Could you elaborate on the process for accomplishing this please?

      Just like the title search method not all players can do it… also (after some reasearch) it seems that PS3 consoles are automatically set to US (for their country code).
