Seeing as we missed last week’s ‘weekly’ unboxing video we’ve decided to do two this week; and this time it will be VIZ Media’s American Blu-ray release of Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan – Set 1 and Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan – Set 2; which makes up for the entirety of Season 1.

Before we ‘dive’ into the contents of each Blu-ray set the American Blu-ray release of Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan Set 1 and Set 2 are compatible on UK Players; as all you need to do is press the ‘Disc Menu’ button when the Region A screen appears to divert it to the main menu – afterwhich everything acts as normal.

Manga Entertainment UK has today taken to twitter to confirm that the UK DVD Release of Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan – Season 2 Part 1 has been changed, and that it will now be released on the 10th March 2014.

Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan – Season 2 Part 1 was initially slated for release on the 3rd February 2014 but it will now be released on the 10th March 2014. It’s not clear if this change in release date is a delay on Kaze’s side (who is authoring the discs) or if its just an alteration to the release schedule, either way this first half of the second series will not be released next month, but instead on the 10th March 2014.

Multiple Kaze Releases Delayed Until September

nura_yokai_clan_screenshot (2)

We have just been informed that multiple Kaze UK releases, most of which are expected to be released next week, have now been delayed until September 2013.

Titles affected include Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan – Season 1 Part 2, Bleach Complete Series 11 and Tiger & Bunny – Part 4, each of which were being released into the UK by Kaze via Manga Entertainment UK thus making the pile of delays even larger to Kaze’s already “impressive” delay streak.

According to the information we received the delay is due to stock not being able to reach the suppliers in time, so consequently the delays are rather minimal. Here is a rundown of the new release dates:

2nd September 2013:

Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan – Season 1 Part 2
Tiger & Bunny –  Part 4

11th September 2013:

Bleach Complete Series 11

It’s worth noting that while the discs / artwork have the Manga Entertainment UK logo on them they have no involved with the production, supplement (etc) as this is all sorted via Kaze’s end, which just recently has been rather appalling.
