Kill La Kill – Box 3 Delayed Once Again; This Time it’s an Issue with the Packaging

Kill_la_Kill_Ep1_04

Despite having advanced copies available to sell at this past weekends London MCM Comic Con Anime Limited have today announced, via their weekly newswire post, that the UK DVD and Blu-ray release for Kill La Kill – Box 3 will be delayed once again.

This reason for this is because early adaptors of the set have found it difficult to remove the artbook and the carded-styled-case (which holds the discs) from the thin chipboard packaging. Ironically this packaging defect has nothing to do with the Collectors Box (which holds all three parts of the set) which had previously caused delays due to not being produced in time. Whats even more confusing about this situation is that Anime Limited had no issues with the inital test mold they received from the production company, so this issue has really come by surprise.

Anime Limited’s Release of Kill La Kill – Box 3 Pushed Back by One Week

Kill_la_Kill_Ep1_04

Anime Limited have recently taken to their blog to reveal that the UK Collectors Edition DVD and Blu-ray release of Kill La Kill – Box 3 has changed; and that it will now be released on the 1st June 2015 as opposed to its inital 25th May 2015 release date.

The reason for this delay is due to production on the Collectors Box, which will house all three sets inside, taking longer than usual; as Jeremy Graves explains on the Anime Limited blog:

Hi everyone. Since this page was published the date of release for Kill la Kill Box 3 has moved back one week to 1st June 2015. This is due the production of the Collector’s Box. It’s a complicated process due its unique design (as you can see image below.) We made this decision to move the release date back one week as at this stage we couldn’t guarantee production would be completed in time for the originally advertised release date. As a precaution we decided to move the date back one week.

It’s ironic that the ‘special’ gesture of adding a Collectors Box is whats slowing this release down; but all the same it’s only a one week delay and theres nothing to really worry about. In short; Kill La Kill – Box 3 will be released as a Collectors Edition DVD and Collectors Edition Blu-ray on the 1st June 2015.

Anime Limited’s Kill La Kill – Part 3 to Include a Collectors Box

Kill_la_Kill_Ep1_04

Anime Limited have today revealed that those purchasing to first-print-run of Kill La Kill – Part 3, which is expected to be released on the 25th May 2015 on both DVD and Blu-ray, will receive a Collectors Box that will fit the entire series in.

The idea is that all three collectors edition parts of Kill La Kill will fit inside this Collectors Box to offer the illusion that it is a complete series set rather than individual parts; a feat which Manga UK recently attempted with Attack on Titan but ultimately failed due to product information and thin materials.
