Manga UK Confirms Madoka Magica for Blu-ray Release

Manga Entertainment UK has today confirmed, via Twitter, that popular Magical Girl TV Series Madoka Magica, will be getting the Blu-ray treatment in the UK.
I'm happy to confirm we will release Madoka Magica on 3 disc DVD and Blu-ray on 22-Oct. DVD is £29.99 RRP and BD is £39.99
Maga Entertainment UK's Blu-ray release of Madoka Magica will feature the complete 12 episode tv series over three Blu-ray Discs in one Blu-ray case, which is great for UK fans considering that the American and Australian releases of Madoka Magica have been sold in individual volumes at a very expensive price.

MangaUK also pointed out that the 'Store Retail Price' of Madoka Magica is £39.99, so online prices will most likely be cheaper than the in-store price, such as is the case with previous Blu-ray releases such as the recent Bleach and Naruto Movies.

Pre-orders for Madoka Magica will start to appear online within the next few weeks, however the Blu-ray (and DVD) Boxset is not released until 22nd October 2012.

New Anime Blu-ray UK Releases (28/05/12)

After a short period without any new Anime Blu-ray Releases in the UK, the past month (and upcoming months) are going to be rather busy - since last week Ghost In The Shell: Solid State Society Blu-ray was released and upcoming next month is Angel Beats and Broken Blade on Blu-ray.

Return to the present and we find that Manga Entertainment UK, in partnership with Kaze UK, has today released the first three Bleach Movies on Single Blu-ray discs across Britain.

I've seen the first two films on Blu-ray, from Kaze-Fr, so i expect the quality and menus to be exactly the same (since the versions by Kaze-Fr had English Dub Track and English Subtitles). Both films had superb picture quality and 5.1 Surround Tracks. Either way today all three films are available to purchase from UK Stores and online retailers.

Bleach: The Movie - Memories Of Nobody -> £15 (Amazon UK / HMV UK) £17.99 (Play UK)
Bleach: The Movie - Diamond Dust Rebellion -> £15 (Amazon UK / HMV UK) £17.99 (Play UK)
Bleach: The Movie - Fade To Black -> £15 (Amazon UK) £17.99 (Play UK) £20 (HMV UK)
