Unboxing: Sengoku Basara – The Last Party (Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack) [UK]

sengoku_basara_last_party_unboxing

It’s widely known that “Sengoku Basara” is one of Manga Entertainment’s unpopular releases, with the first season selling poorly on both Blu-ray and DVD, which is why the company was hesitant about releasing any more. Fast forward years into the future and the final ‘movie’ instalment into the anime series, entitled Sengoku Basara: The Last Party, is now here, and better yet its available in the UK on both Blu-ray and DVD.

mcm-comic-expo-manchesterFor the first time Manga Entertainment UK hosted a podcast recording at the Manchester MCM Comic-Con (previously known as MCM Expo) and with it they announced a slew of new anime acquisitions as well as release windows for previously confirmed titles, such as K-On! The Movie.

New anime acquisitions include Sengoku Basara – The Last Party, Eureka Seven AO, Blood-C: The Last Dark, Fairy Tail – The Movie and Karneval, while confirmed release windows for K-On! The Movie, Black Lagoon: Roberta’s Blood Trial and Guilty Crown were also announced.

4th November: Black Lagoon Roberta’s Blood Trial (DVD & Blu-ray via Kaze)
18th November: Guilty Crown – Part 1 (DVD & Blu-ray)

Q1: One Piece – Collection 5 (DVD)
??: Sengoku Basara – The Last Party (format TBC)
??: Fairy Tail – The Movie (format TBC)
??: Karneval (format TBC)

More details surrounding each of these releases will be unveiled later in the year, and most likely at the London MCM Comic-Con which takes place in October. Personally i’m excited to see the Sengoku Basara Movie, as the series is highly underrated, as well as the conclusion to the Blood-C franchise in the form of The Last Dark.

Unboxing: Sengoku Basara – Season 2 (Limited Edition Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack) [USA]

sengoku_basara_season2_unboxing
As previously mentioned in a ‘Region Check’ article Season 2 of Sengoku Basara is Region Free, meaning that people within the UK will be able to enjoy this anime, which is based off a Capcom game, in full High Definition.

This particular release not only includes the DVD set, which is Region Locked, but it also includes a Limited Edition artbox where it can hold both Season 1 and Season 2 sets. Better yet the UK Blu-ray release of Season 1 fits perfectly fine inside the carded artbox, making this set an ideal purchase for UK Sengoku Basara fans.

Included on the discs we have 7 Sengoku Basara Katakura-kan Episodes, Cast commentaries, textless songs and trailers for other FUNimation releases in addition to all 12 episodes of the TV series and the bonus OVA episode.

It’s highly unlikely that Manga Entertainment UK will release Season 2 on Blu-ray within the UK, but if you do decide to pick-up the Blu-ray then I recommend getting the Limited Edition version especially if you’ve got season 1 on Blu-ray.
