4.0 out of 5 stars I'm pleased with what I got, but the cover art...., 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: High School of the Dead: The Complete Series (Drifters of the Dead Edition) (Blu-ray + DVD) (Blu-ray)
For the most part I'm happy with the release. This was my first time buying the series so I saved money AND got the OVA alongside. An issue I have though is the cover art. I was ecstatic to have Saeko, my favorite character, on the cover art as it was shown on the previous thumbnail here but I opened my mail to be disappointed with Rei. My LEAST favorite of the characters. Needless to say, that brought the enjoyment of the release for me down by a star... It's superficial, I know, but of all people it just had to be Rei. At least they changed the thumbnail now so no one else will have to experience my disappointment. Saeko is most popular character after all.

The other discs are pretty much the exact same ones from the previous blu-ray release, and I assume they're the same for the DVD version too, so the only change is the addition of the OVA that is on DVD in BOTH the DVD and Blu-ray versions of Drifters of the Dead Edition. Makes sense since it would be an expensive and unnecessary task to reprint new artwork on them or alter any formats on the discs themselves. Now, I knew from a MangaUK podcast that the OVA was going to be on DVD only so I wasn't affected by it. They explained that they cannot release a series on Blu-ray unless it is already released on Blu-ray by the Japanese distributors, and since the Drifters of the Dead OVA was a DVD exclusive giveaway to the buyers of the manga volumes in Japan, that's what we got too. Similarly, they also have to release boxsets and parts according to how they are released in Japan. I think they mentioned the reason behind both of these contracted terms being because both Japan and the UK are Region 2, and this reduces the possibility of the Japanese importing anime series from UK sellers for a cheaper price, as anime tends to be ridiculously expensive in Japan.
