I have never heard of this film before but that trailer and artstyle sold me. Will go to one of the local screenings in two weeks.

I have this film on DVD, and I'm anxiously looking forward to the Blu-ray from Cinelicious Pics. I love the art style, the soundtrack, and the overall mood. It's much different from most anime. There's very little actual animation for the most part -- instead, the camera will pan over still images with voiceovers and music. This didn't bother me much, however, since the artwork mostly looks great.

Belladonna Of Sadness - $22.05 after code

$5 off at Deep Discount w/ Purchase over $25.00 Code: TITANIC Expires 06-02-16 Noon CT.

You can either pair it up with some filler to get the free shipping or just take the $1.99 shipping hit. I get charged taxes as well but still $25.50 is a good deal in my book.

I was so busy with work and other activities this past week that I forgot this was being showed in one of my local cinemas and I missed the screening window. Will have to wait for the BD to come out to watch it. :/

Seems like the first printing of the regular edition companion book will include the Blu-ray, no matter where it's bought from. Originally only the description on the Hat & Beard Press website mentioned that the first printing will come with the Blu-ray, but the descriptions on Amazon.com/co.uk/de have been adjusted and now mention the inclusion of the Blu-ray as well. I tried contacting Hat & Beard this week, but they haven't responded yet.

Try asking Andrew Partridge at Anime Limited about posters, because Anime Limited is releasing the movie on Blu-ray in the UK. Their webshop offers international shipping.

EDIT: Received reply from Hat & Beard. First printing of the regular edition companion book comes with the Blu-ray disc stitched inside the book. The limited edition will contain the full retail version of the Blu-ray.

A few questions:

- I'm guessing there are 2 versions of this book you speak of?
- do you have the links to these books?
- when you speak of the blu-ray coming with the book(s), is there a difference between the blu-rays between the regular book and the limited edition book?

I only see one link on amazon regarding the book:
https://www.amazon.com/Belladonna-Sa...nna+of+sadness


I'm guessing the limited edition version is only available on cinelicious' website?

UPDATE: to answer my own question, it looks like amazon is the best place to get the book ($50.77), as the Hat and Beard site is selling it for $60. Don't think the "limited edition" is worth the $120 for:

Quote:
the Blu-ray release of the restored feature film by Cinelicious Pics; the official U.S. theatrical one-sheet 27 39 inch poster; an alternate theatrical poster featuring artwork only available with the limited edition; a Belladonna enamel jewelry pin; and a promotional postcard.
PS: the deepdiscount blu-ray is currently $21.99.

Yes. There is a $120 limited edition that's exclusive to the Hat and Beard webshop (Available here) and there is also a regular release of the book that's also available at other stores, like that Amazon link you posted.

The Hat and Beard representative told me that the regular edition comes only with the disc itself stitched inside the book, so it's missing the Blu-ray case and the 16 page booklet. The limited edition comes with the full retail Blu-ray with Blu-ray case and the booklet. In addition the limited edition also contains some extra goodies:

It's pretty clear the compression is subpar, reminds me of Criterion's Mulholland Drive. Most of the shots just show a lot of compression artifacts in the grain, but in that first example the encoder seems to have broken down completely.

I'd be a bit annoyed if I had worked on the restoration and this was the end result (for those not being able to see it in theaters.)

This gets released today and it's $25 at Amazon right now.

I preordered, so hopefully they'll refund the extra $15.

Yep they stopped doing that long ago because people as always abused the system. You an however should be able to get it fixed because it dropped before it shipped. Well usually it auto adjust but I haven't preordered anything from AMZ in forever. I used to get an email saying that since it dropped I got xxx amount back.

Got a response from customer service which totally ignored the actual issue I brought up. I'll have to initiate a chat when I get off work.
