WHICH EDITION FOR ME?
Well if you’re curious about Blood Lad – check it out on Netflix first to work it out :)! The Blu-Ray version first out is the Collector’s one – it’s got a 96 page book mirroring the US one and contains the translated manga segments from the Japanese homevideo release, interviews, artworks from the original artist and more! Here’s a few snaps to whet your appetite:
This time, cost-wise it made sense for a straight to standard edition DVD version too – we’ve included reversible covers and all the same video content across three DVDs for folks there!
It’s slid from October to January pretty simply because approvals are complex so things had to be shuffled round. By the time everything was ready printers were in peak season alas so that’s the soonest we could really move on it.
Hope folks enjoy the show and grab a copy when it’s out in January!
