girls_und_panzer_ova_dvd_screenshot7

If you are eagerly awaiting MVM Entertainment’s upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of Girls Und Panzer OVA Collection then unfortunately you’ll have to wait a ‘little bit’ longer, as the set has been pushed back until the 16th June 2014.

The set was originally expected to release on the 2nd June 2014, however after noticing several online retailers, such as Amazon and Zavvi, listing a 16th June 2014 release date we decided to reach out to MVM Entertainment for some clarification on the release date, and it seems the release date change is indeed true.

It is indeed 16 June – DVD for sure, but BD may have to go back another week.

This means that the Girls Und Panzer OVA Collection will be released on the 16th June 2014 as opposed to it’s inital 2nd June 2014 release date, however the bad news doesn’t stop their as the Blu-ray version of the set may be released a ‘week after’ the DVD version, thus arriving on the 23rd June 2014.

So as it stands now the DVD Version of Girls Und Panzer OVA Collection will be released on the 16th June 2014, with the Blu-ray version expected to release on the same day but it ‘may be’ pushed back to 23rd June 2014.

Unboxing: Girls Und Panzer – The Complete OVA Collection (Blu-ray) [USA]

Girls_Und_Panzer_OVA_US_Unboxed_Front

With MVM Entertainment to release both the TV Series and OVA Collection of Girls Und Panzer onto Blu-ray this year i decided to ‘dive ahead’ and pick-up the American Sentai Filmworks release of the OVA Collection to see exactly what’s in store, so lets get it unboxed!

As you may already be aware the US Release of Girls Und Panzer OVA Collection is Region B Compatible, so it will work perfectly fine on UK Blu-ray players and consoles, however despite this i’d recomend waiting for the official UK release – mainly because its cheaper. The US Release is around $30 / £18, without shipping, meanwhile the UK release is available to pre-order for £15, so if you wait that little bit extra you’ll save some money and support the UK Anime industry.
