http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/KnK.jpg Type-Moon are publishing a Kara no Kyoukai Blu-ray box set early next year, the company has announced. The box is currently slated for February 2nd, 2011, at 52,500 yen.

 

Included in the set will be a bonus disc containing a new, final chapter, concluding the Kara no Kyoukai story. This disc will also be available as a separate purchase on Feb 2nd.

 

The best part about the Blu-ray box set, however, is that it includes both Japanese and English subtitles.

    sweet, $53 for 7 blu-ray movies is not a bad deal at all

    • FHOIW

      Er… More like 620 dollar mate….

    • corti

      Yeah, so kinda… a hellova lot more than $53. I usually have google convert it myself. Does anybody know if a price like this is normal? I mean geez, $620~ is a LOT of money for some movies.

  • FHOIW

    I believe it’s only the last one.
    Nevertheless, I am a huge KnK fan, so I’m definitely gonna save up for it. Just hoping it won’t go out of preorder soon. Amazon.co.jp has it for 33000 or something yen as a discount.

    Could have sworn Blu-ray Movies were region locked. Guess im wrong?

    • godmars

      They are, but Japan and the US share the same “region.” You’re only SOL if you’re in the EU.

      Blu-ray Movies are region locked~ So if you want to buy a U.K. release, you’ll have to buy a players from there. Japan is in our area -for the blu- for both games and movies:

        This is not true at all. Most Blu-Ray movies are region free; it’s just that a small minority are region locked, but this applies to only the most scrupulous of publishers. I have several movies from several regions around the globe & none of them are region locked.

          It usually depends on whether the movie has been released on theathers in different regions.For example, Scott Pilgrim has been released in August, but in some european countries it will only arrive in November. In that case, I suspect the american BR release will be region locked, because the movie will still be too fresh out of european theathers.

            Scott Pilgrim won’t be aired over here until next year. D:

        I’ve yet to see a Japanese anime Blu-ray that’s region locked, and I own quite a few of them.

  • doubleO7

    I dont think its worth it. Aniplex’s US branch has already indicated that they have the rights are currently negotiating with a US company. Sure, we’ll probably have to wait a year or more after the Japanese release before it makes it to the US, but when it does it’ll be WAY cheaper that $600+, and possibly include an english dub.

    Although I guess if you’re really impatient, and have several hundred dollars laying around, then it might not sound like such a bad deal.

  • malek86

    Yeah, there’s something I quite never understood: what’s with Japan’s eff-ed up anime prices?

    • mirumu

      In practice I don’t think anyone will actually be paying 52,500 yen. Japanese retailers will sell it for a lot less than that. Amazon has it for 38,497 yen. Fairly common practice for most DVD/Blu-ray box sets.

      I don’t mean to suggest even those reduced prices aren’t eff-ed up though. Just a little less so than it may initially seem.
