Patlabor: The Mobile Police – OVA Collection

Region: A (Not Playable in the UK)
Boxart states Region A Only

Price: $27.21 / £17.29 (Excluding postage)

Episodes: 1 – 7

Plot: Drunk drivers are bad, but put a drunk driver in a giant robot called a Labor and you’ve got a disaster waiting to happen. And when REAL criminals get their hands on those same giant robots, the cops need giant robots of their own just to maintain the status quo, right?

Well, that’s the logic behind the development of the Patlabor program and special Labor Crime units like Japan’s Section 2 in any case. But what logic fails to take into account is where to find police officers who’re equally conversant with both robots and the regulations? And THAT’s where the motley crew of Section 2, Division 2 comes in!

With ridiculously perky tomboy Noa Izumi and gun-happy madman Isao Ohta as primary Labor pilots and the impossibly laid back Captain Goto in what passes for command, SV2 is ready to hit the streets with their twenty ton feet! But will they be taking a byte out of crime or have they bitten off more than they can chew? The law of the land and the laws of robotics are about to collide in the first Earth shattering collection of Mobile Police Patlabor!

Plot: Class F is back in the Baka and Test – Summon the Beasts: OVA Special Collection! Fumizuki Academy’s popular Refreshing Festival is quickly approaching, and the student body is busy prepping class projects. For Yoshii and the gang, there’s a lot more at stake than showing off for campus visitors. If Class F doesn’t profit from its festival project and buy some new gear for its dumpy room, Mizuki’s parents are going to send her to another school!

Of course, even if the slack pack makes some money, they’ll have to win one of the toughest Summoner Test Wars of their lives before they’re allowed to spend it. It’s not going to be easy, that’s for sure. But once the underachievers of Class F get motivated, they don’t give up – and they can’t even spell surrender!

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood OVA Collection Gets Delayed within the UK

Manga Entertainment UK has today confirmed, via its latest Podcast, that the UK release of the upcoming Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood OVA Collection will be delayed due to a technical fault with the subtitles on the Blu-ray Disc.

According to the UK Anime Network, they experienced ‘subtitle issues’ with the Review / Sample Discs and because of this issue it rendered the release ‘impossible’ to watch in its original japanese format. The UK Anime Network  forwarded this information onto Manga Entertainment UK, who repsonded that they would try and fix the issue before its release next monday – however during the Podcast Manga confirmed that the release would have to be ‘pushed back’ until the problem has been sorted.

While the fault is only on the ‘Blu-ray’ Disc of the Collection, the DVD disc, which works perfectly fine, will not be released seperately, meaning that fans will have to wait until the Blu-ray disc has been fixed – before being able to watch any of the OVA Collection.

While some fans may be disappointed with news of the delay, its great to see that this ‘issue’ was picked up before its general release, unlike the Panty & Stocking DVD Collection which featured several seconds worth of footage missing – because of this error Manga had to recall all stock from customers and retailers, before being able to re-release a fixed version of the product.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – OVA Collection was expected to be released next monday, 15th October 2012, however at this moment in time the release has been pushed back into an ‘unannounced’ release date.

UK Boxart for Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood OVA Collection Revealed

Manga Entertainment UK has recently released what could ‘possibly’ be the final confirmed artwork and disc art for their upcoming Blu-ray release of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood OVA Collection.

The overall Box art is very similar to FUNimations release earlier in the year, which we unboxed here, however its the Disc artwork in this UK Release that i prefer more. The american disc art was relatively black and hard to read, where as the UK release is White (DVD) and Blue (Blu-ray), making it easier on the eyes.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood OVA Collection contains four 30 minute long OVA Episodes, which fill in the gaps in some of Broterhood’s timeline, as well as 16 Comic Episodes – all of which are contained on one Blu-ray disc and one dvd disc.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood OVA Collection is now available to pre-order in the UK for around £17 from a variety of online retailers such as Amazon, HMV and Play and it will be released on the 15th October 2012.
