We’ve had lots of you asking about when we’d be unveiling our plans for this classic, and we’re excited to tell you that we’re nearly there, and you’ll be able to pre-order our release containing all of Black Lagoon this month!


We’ll have a pack shot to show you very soon, but for now we can confirm that our release will contain Season 1, Season 2 and Roberta’s Blood Trail in a single collection across five discs.

Alongside a Digipak to hold those Blu-ray discs sporting a stunning piece of artwork, you’ll find a 20-page booklet and a landscape poster, all safely housed within a well-defined rigid slipcase.

Josee, the Tiger & the Fish Collector’s Edition

Earlier this year, lots of you got to catch the visually and emotionally beautiful Josee, the Tiger and the Fish on the big screen in cinemas, and we loved hearing from you about how much you enjoyed the film. Many of you were keen to own the movie for yourself to watch again in your own home, and whether you’ve seen the film before or are new to it this is one Collector’s Edition you won’t want to miss!

Again, we’ll be revealing a little more about how this release looks very soon, but for now we can tell you that there’s a lot to look forward to, as we’ll be recreating practically all of the contents from the Japanese Limited Edition release.

That means that as well as the film itself on Blu-ray, you’ll be provided with a huge book fulled of designs, artwork and production interviews for an exhaustive look behind the scenes of its creation, a second book replicating the children’s book that features in the film, and even a map of Osaka documenting the key locations throughout the film – invaluable for your 2022 visit to Japan, perhaps?

Oh, and how about the film’s soundtrack? Yep, we have that too, and it’ll be included on CD to complete this package. All of these contents will, of course, sit within a Digipak and rigid slipcase sporting some stunning artwork.

Product:  Josee, the Tiger and the Fish Collector’s Edition
Release date: 
29th November 2021
SRP: £44.99
Early Bird opens: 28th October 2021
Early Bird price: £29.99

The eagle-eyed amongst you may have spotted a gap in the weekly Early Bird schedule – expect some news on a new vinyl pre-order in there, so take note of that date for a juicy apple of a release from one of our friendly fellow vinyl producers!

As always, we’d love to hear what you’re looking forward to from these forthcoming titles, and we hope you’re looking forward to getting your hands on these new releases as much as we’re excited to be providing them for you!

Take care everyone, and we’ll be back with more exciting news soon no doubt!

    Please do a deal with Discotek to get that Project A-Ko Blu-Ray over here. Even better if an artbook was possible!

      I second this proposal and suggest a similar deal with Sentai Filmworks for their excellent Vampire Hunter 'D' BR.

    Hope the Omake is included in the "complete" release of Black Lagoon was really disappointed that Manga Entertainment didn't include it.
