Btw, Anime Limited releases are better than Manga Entertainment (they're usually just taken from FUNimation/Madman as is ó which is not a problem, but it's not somewhat unique).
Interesting. I do have a PS3 Slim as my blu-ray player.

You do realise that most Anime Limited releases are the same discs from FUNi and Madman, right?

From what I understand, Manga's Stand Alone Complex release isn't the **** up that the NA release happens to be. I have my eyes on that one.

Just saw on Twitter that Madman will be releasing their complete boxset, too.



AU$349.95 (£193.98 / $249.58)

No question, Manga Entertainment's CE is by far the best one of the English Super releases.

PS3 has universal power inputs or whatever the more technical term might be.

Basically what I mean is you can plug any PS3 into any power supply around the world and it should work. I have both US and JAP Launch Models and they both plug in and work just fine without adapters here in the UK.

[Show spoiler]Also if you softmod your PS3 i.e Jailbreak it you can change the Blu Ray region via the menu.

Does anyone know if the new Manga UK Complete box is Region B locked? I remember reading somewhere on this forum that it wasn’t but this review I just watched on YouTube says it was, can anyone confirm before I buy?

The YouTube review you mentioned is most likely correct since they actually own it, but I'm waiting to receive the set myself, so once it arrives I'll be able to confirm whether or not it is locked (unless someone else here gets it first)

If you’re talking about AnimeAjay’s review, I helped him out by giving him a website thing where you post some part of your BDMV and it determines region locking. (I also showed him what bitrate viewer is, and that’s why he put a lot of emphasis on it in his review)

For what it's worth, Funimation titles that are released by Manga Entertainment are re-authored to be region B only, and it's been that way for quite a while now. US/AUS gets A/B Discs, UK discs are only Region B, most likely because our releases are so damn cheap whilst they try to find a sustainable price point.

Yes thatís the one! You donít say, small world, and nice work helping him out itís a great review. I thought that segment felt pretty familiar, wondered if he was a frequent viewer of the anime video quality thread here.

Shame about it being B locked, I must have got Manga and Madman confused in terms of region coding. Iíll still keep the box anyway for the box and extras, I had like half of the Funi discs, and the artwork on the discs is the same so I can see if I can find the rest on sale. Not the worst thing in the world.

I'm surprised one for North America hasn't been announced yet.

I don't even need a complete series set. Sets with 25-50 episodes should be fine.

On the contrary, I'd be surprised if Funimation put the effort in for a complete series box. I expect at some point they might do 2-part collections like they eventually do with most other series, but I think the most we can hope for in terms of a complete set is an Amazon-exclusive slipbox with all the individual parts inside.

Why does it seem like other countries always get these complete collection sets whereas North America rarely gets them? And if we do it takes years.

FUNimation likes to be weird with Dragon Ball. See: Them still refusing to repackage the Green, Orange, and Blue bricks in DVD cases which take up less shelf space for retailers. They also have yet to do bigger sets for Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z beyond retailer exclusives, and those are just giving the bricks a big slipbox.

Oh yeah, I forgot about the FYE slipboxes for the bricks. I was only thinking of the Amazon slipbox for the Blu-rays

FUNimation did release the Standard DBZ Blu-rays in U.K. which look pretty sweet. Well, by name it's Manga Entertainment, but under the hood it's FUNimation.

Who knows what's taking them so long. Maybe they just don't want U.S. customers to have access to the same packaged release as U.K.



Time for FUNi to discontinue the Orange Bricks and just maybe, they could downscale the 30A release to DVD so there's still a DVD version for those who want it.

They're not going to discontinue the Orange Bricks, they've sold quite literally millions of those things, and they continue to fly off the shelves to this very day. They should look into repackaging them so like say Walmart can fit more stock on the shelf at one time.

Just bought the BD of the Super Broly film, hope I enjoy it. Would buy the BD box sets of Super but it's too expensive for my tastes.

Super Broly is great. I'm not the biggest DB fan and I loved Broly.
