With a UK release of Love Live! School Idol Project – The Movie currently nowhere to be found, despite a special screening at London MCM Comic Con and Scotland Loves Anime last year, I decided to import the Australian Limited Edition Blu-ray release of the film to see what it has to offer – and more importantly – to see if it will fit well with MVM Entertainment’s previously released UK Blu-ray Editions of the TV Series.

Unboxing: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – The OVA Collection (Artbox Blu-ray Edition) [AUS]

fullmetal_alchemist_brotherhood_ova_artbox_front_unboxing

When it comes to anime releases our friends over the pond in the Australia seem to know what they are doing; for starters not only do they author majority of our UK releases (with the exception of Hanabee Releases) but they also release some rather quality products when it comes to Limited Edition bundles and artboxes. Case and point this release of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – The OVA Collection (Artbox Blu-ray Edition) which i’ll be unboxing today.

When this product was released in the UK we received the collection as a DVD and Blu-ray Combo Pack with a thin carded sleeve wrapped around the amaray case (for the first print-run only); however in Australia this was released as a standard or an Artbox version – with the artbox itself having space for the ‘entire’ five-part instalment and the Scared Star of Milos movie; now thats how you create a limited edition product.

Ever since K-On! made it’s debut appearence within the UK fans of the show have constantly asked for a Blu-ray release of it; fast foward several years and while the movie received a Blu-ray the series still remains absent; fortunately for us there are other alternatives. There is of course the American (Region Locked) Sentai Filmworks release or more appropiately the Australian (Region B) Madman Entertainment release and today i’ll be taking a look at the latter, or more accurately K-On! – Volume 1 (Limited Edition Artbox Blu-ray).

Unboxing: One Piece: Strong World (Blu-ray) [AUS]

One_Piece_Strong_World_Bluray_Unboxing

Seeing as the US Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack of One Piece: Strong World is REGION LOCKED and there is no word of a UK Blu-ray (or DVD) release due anytime soon is worth mentioning that the Australian Blu-ray, which was released on the 19th February 2014, is fully compatible with UK Blu-ray Players.

As with all Australian Blu-rays the discs are encoded Region B, meaning they play perfectly fine within the UK, and with One Piece: Strong World this isn’t an exception. There isn’t much to talk about, as its a 115 minute long film (in High Definition) put onto a Blu-ray disc, with the only worthwhile extra feature being an introduction to Brook. This extra is included as the English Dub of One Piece has yet to introduce him, but if you watch it before the film then it does spoil some scenes.

The Australian (Madman Entertainment) release of One Piece: Strong World is exactly what you expect it to be, a Blu-ray disc with some cool art work and minimal extras – but interestingly I prefer this over the US version. Either way One Piece: Strong World is now available within Australia and like I mentioned before it works perfectly fine on UK Blu-ray players.
