But you might wonder what the packaging looks like, especially since the Japanese Limited Edition Blu-ray is one of the most kick-ass releases EVER in that regard, despite being released over seven years ago. But that edition, out-of-print for years already, has always been very expensive, and didn't have any English dub or subs. Unlike this new British release by Anime Ltd. which is available for a reasonable price, and has English subs-and-a-dub.
So what does the UK Anime Ltd. release look like? Quite nice, actually, and it uses artwork which pays homage to Satoshi Kon's story. Here it is:
Well, the UK version can't win from the Japanese with its packaging, but at a fraction of that edition's cost it is certainly no slouch. It's very pretty in its own right, and the outside is a nice tough thick cardboard slipcase.
Inside the slipcase are the disc-holder and some artwork cards.
The disc-holder is quite clever, playing with the film's theme of split personalities.
All in all I'm impressed and look forward to what this company (Anime Ltd.) will release next!
And I understand if, after seeing the previous picture, you are curious about what's beneath the discs. And yes, it's just as "racy" as the Japanese edition was.
