As you can see it’ll come packed in a rigid case, inside that there will be a digipack holding the three Blu-ray discs and the set will also come with 8 art cards. We’re still working on locking down a new release date for this, we’re hoping to have that confirmed for you soon, so please stay tuned for more details.

~ Remember a while back we spoke about our upcoming releases of Sword Art Online II: Part 3 & Part 4, and how we would have more information about the episode breakdown for each release. Today we can confirm the episode breakdown will see episodes 15-19 included in Part 3, and the remainder of the series included in Part 4.

This sees the complete 3 episode “Calibur” arc and the first two episodes of the “Mother’s Rosario” arc. Sword Art Online II: Part 3 is set for release on 25th March. You can expect more details, including visuals of what our release will look like soon.

~ Looking ahead to our release of Psychic School Wars, remember that one? We have an update on this for you. As we’ve talked about before we’ll be bringing this to the UK in the form of a Limited Collector’s Edition Blu-ray+DVD set scheduled for release on 25th April. Today we can show you what we have planned packaging wise for our release. There was some wonderful imagery so we’ve done our best to include as much of it as possible. Take a look at the visual below for your first glimpse at this our release.

Psychic School Wars – Ltd. Collector’s Edition Blu-ray/DVD coming April 2016

So to give you a rundown of what we have in the image above, our release will come packed with a rigid case (top row, centre) and inside that will be a digipack (top right) to house the two discs (bottom left), 1 x DVD and 1 x Blu-ray. In addition to this there will also be a Collector’s Edition exclusive 40-page booklet that will be divided into three sections: 1) character and background art, 2) a gallery, and perhaps one of the most unique aspects to a booklet we’ve had in one of our releases 3) an epilogue section to the film. Yes you did read that right, there is actually an epilogue to the film included in this booklet. And finally in the top left of the image above is an o-card that will slide over the top of the rigid case, like what we’ve done for various releases of ours including Wings of Honneamise and Space Dandy Season 2.

You can expect this image to start appearing with retailers shortly. You can pre-order your copy from the likes of Amazon UK, Zavvi and Base today.
