AnimeBlurayUK TV – Episode 1: The Unscripted Pilot – A Video News Show


If you our subscribed to our Youtube Channel (AnimeBlurayUK) then you may have noticed a new video series being uploaded over the course of the weekend; well this video series is our new monthly / bi-monthly, i still haven’t decided, video log whereby I discuss all things anime related that have appeared on the website as well as do some potential video reviews and impressions.

The idea is that it will give you, the readers, a quick re-cap on anime related news that has transpired over the past few days as well as a few laughs at my face-to-camera skills. Truthfully this new series is still in its infantacy; but it will be interesting to see where it goes and, if it continues to prove positive, then i will do more. Read more of this post

gurren_lagann_review_screenshot (1)

Earlier in the week reports came in that the Ultimate Edition of Gurren Lagann suffered from some rather amsuing but disappointg issues; well today All The Anime have provided an update to these issues so that hopefully everyone knows where they stand.

The first issue was that a wide selection of fans who received the product noticed that the third disc tray was either glued in the wrong place or had fallen off completely; this was down to a manufacturing fault and it seems in order to fix it viewers can either re-glue the disc try onto the card or request a replacement box.

Update and Clarification To Region Lock Listings

With the site becoming more popular i thought i would take a moment to update (and clarify) some of the posts regarding Blu-ray Discs being labelled as “Region Locked” when some people have discovered that they can be made playable on a UK Blu-ray Player.

As many of you may be aware, especially members from the UK Anime Forum, some Anime Blu-rays, such as discs from Sentai Filmworks, Aniplex USA and Viz Media, can be played on a UK (Region B) Blu-ray player by using the title search method. This method “does” indeed work, but it does not work on all Blu-ray players and can requrie a bit of “technical know-how” to preform it, as you have to manually choose which title to play which could result in the wrong item being played.

Because this title search method is not guaranteed to work on all Blu-ray Players (something which i have confirmed myself) and can be complicated to use, i do not use it in any of my disc testing, and as such if the disc does not work using my methods then i class the Blu-ray “Region Locked”.

The idea of this site was to highlight what US Blu-ray Discs worked on UK Blu-ray Players without any modifications or tricks. The only option i do use, and reccomend (as you are still granted full use of the disc menu and extra features) is the “Disc Menu” option, as some Blu-ray Discs (such as the recent Nura: Rise of Yokai) can have the region lock screen bypassed by pressing the disc menu button and the disc itself will continue to operate as normal.

Basically if a US Blu-ray Disc works in UK Blu-ray players then the disc will be classed REGION FREE, if the Region A only screen appears but is bypassed (and works as normal) by pressing the “Disc Menu” button then the disc is still classed as REGION FREE, however if the disc does not work via either of these methods then the disc is classed REGION LOCKED.
