You must all be getting very bored of updates from me about Gurren Lagann’s Ultimate Edition now but I thought we owed you one last update really – to highlight the changes we’ve made on the release and why outside of Japan this is justifiably the best edition around!
Let’s start off with some comparative shots as a whole:
What you’re seeing are “white samples”. We get these a lot because we don’t operate with standard packaging so we ask to see the types before we go to print. It avoids something horrible happening and protects the manufacturer from complaints later if it matches what they send out. Obviously the previous iteration before changes are quite staggering! It was a choice made 100% on our side to preserve the quality of what we’re doing and to satisfy approvals as you can imagine.
White samples are one thing – but let’s compare it to an existing release shall we? Let’s take Durarara!! for example:
So now you should have a bit of an idea about just how far we’ve taken this – and if we’re going to make you guys wait (Spring 2014 seems so long ago now…) then I want you to have the very best edition we can do. It costs more to do* but I’d rather deliver the best possible edition we can for you guys!
Here’s another quick shot of the edition as it should look when done too:
