un_go_review_screenshot (3)The tale of the ‘defeated detective’ has arrived into the UK, but how does it compare with the US counterpart? Find out in our Blu-ray / DVD Review of Un-Go – The Complete Series.

That could prove lethal, given that not even the other “good guys”, including the police, are exactly on Shinjouro’s side. Fortunately Yuuki’s not completely on his own, and with the aid of his uniquely talented associate Inga, he’s ready to cut a swath through the veils of secrecy that have been laid before him. Get ready for mind against matter and a lot of cloak and dagger as the ultimate battle of clue and deduction begins in UN-GO! Read more of this post

Un-Go Delay Confirmed, Will now Release in July

un_go_review_screenshot (2)

You may recall earlier in the week that I mentioned, via Twitter, that the UK release date for Un-Go – The Complete Series had been altered on a variety of websites, including Manga UK’s own Publicity firm. However since we had no confirmation I decided not mention anything on the blog.

Well today Manga Entertainment UK have took to Twitter and Facebook to confirm that the UK Release of Un-Go has indeed been delayed and it will now launch next month, however this delay has nothing to do with the technical issue that was revealed last week.

According to the statement (which can be seen below) the reason for the delay is due an unexpected delay in the deliverer of the stock, basically the stock would not arrive at suppliers in time for the launch day, and so the release date has been changed.

Hello Everyone,
We wanted to inform you that due to an unexpected shipping delay of stock the release of Un-Go: Complete Box Set has now been pushed back to the 8th July.
We apologise for this but it is completely unavoidable.

As mentioned this delay has nothing to do with the technical issue found within the Blu-ray disc, so if you plan on watching the Blu-ray disc on a Panasonic Blu-ray Player you may still experience the technical error, the DVD discs however are in perfect working order.

Un-Go – The Complete Series, which is being released as a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack will now be released on the 8th July 2013.

Manga UK Identifies Technical Issue with Un-Go Blu-ray Disc

Manga Entertainment UK has today idenified a possible technical issue with the Blu-ray Disc for Un-Go: The Complete Series, which is being released on the 17th June 2013 as a Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack.

According to the statement issued by Manga UK the Blu-ray disc for Un-Go is not compatible with Panasonic Blu-ray players and after a quick inspection with our Panasonic Blu-ray Player (BDT-120) we can confirm that their is indeed a fault with the disc. The disc loads up and plays the episodes as normal, however no audio (or subtitles) is present and even changing the audio track doesn’t create any results. We can confirm that the Disc does work fine with other Blu-ray players, such as Samsung and LG players.

To those who are affected by the incompatible disc, KAZE UK are offering to replace the Blu-ray disc with another anime title from their catalogue. In order to do so you must contact Manga UK via Twitter or Facebook.

Here is the statement in full:

Hello everyone.

We wanted to inform you of a technical issue in relation to the playback of the Blu-ray disc included in the upcoming release of Un-Go Complete Box Set, that Manga Entertainment are distributing in the UK for KAZE.

“There has been a QC (Quality Control) error. We have tested the Blu-ray disc again, to find that it is not compatible with Panasonic devices. We are investigating the reasons for this to the fullest extent.

KAZE apologise for any problems this has caused and will offer a replacement product from the KAZE range to those effected”.

We are unable to comment any further at this time, as soon as there is more information we will be sure to make it known.

Please get in touch with us using Direct Message via @MangaUK on Twitter or Facebook if you have any questions. ^JG
