elfen-lied-header

Although an official announcement has yet to be made by 101 Films a listing on Amazon UK reveals that this UK distirbutor will be releasing Elfen Lied on Blu-ray within the UK as a Special Collectors Edition set.

According to the listing this ‘Collectors Edition’ set will be released on the 27th July 2015 and contain the entire thirteen episode TV series along with the ‘missing’ OVA episodes; all of which will be presented in 1080p High Definition. In addition this set on-disc extras, such as production artwork and textless songs, and it will include a 36-page booklet, which we assume will contain bios and character artwork. All of the content, such as the Blu-ray Discs and 36-Page booklet, will come housed inside a unique metal case.

The current listing price for this set is £59.99, which we assume to be the RRP Price, and isn’t too bad considering Anime Limited’s Collectors Edition sets have been priced at around the same margin.

101 Films, who release anime titles as 101 Anime, have previously released Elfen Lied on DVD; other anime titles of theirs include Lady Death and RahXephon; both of which were pretty solid releases so we have high expectations of their debut anime blu-ray release.
