Baccano! Blu-Ray Box Photos

Jacuzzi is very happy
Hey there, fellow Baccano! fans! As you may or may not know, the Blu-Ray box was released yesterday. My copy was juuuuust delivered, so I thought I'd share a block of photos of it. I'm sorry they aren't scans of it, but my scanner has been out of commission for a while. If no one has scanned it by the time I get a replacement scanner, I'll post scans (though that may be in several months!!).

The box is GORGEOUS. The booklet it comes with is very text heavy, it looks like the only pictures in it were already in the DVD booklets, so I didn't take and pictures of them. The yellow thing in the booklet is either a ticket to or the opportunity to buy a ticket to the live event "Welcome to ALVEARE," Which I would SO GO TO if I had more time to plan the trip. Argh! The poster is really nice, it's printed on a craft paper, which gives it a cool old look. Please pardon my hands and feet in the last few photos!

A couple details:
-It's not native HD, it's an upscale (but looks FANTASTIC)
-Includes English subs
-Includes English dub
-Super easy menus to navigate (honestly, it comes up and pretty much says "Japanese or English?" and if you want Japanese or English subs, the menu for that is super easy too)
-Best Blu-Ray release ever
-Best series ever

I love how Miria and Isaac's arms are outstretched on the B&W pics. The whole thing is gorgeous.

It looks AMAZING! SO jealous~

Outa curiosity, does the dub happen to be on this blu ray? Cuz I might consider importing it if it is....

Never heard of a Japanese DVD/BD that included English dubs tbqh.
27th-Jan-2011 09:08 pm (UTC)
Oh wow I had no idea. I mean I've heard of English subs but not dubs.
27th-Jan-2011 09:20 pm (UTC)
Supposedly there are a bunch of fans in Japan who watch/buy the English DVDs and compare the scripts, as well as use the U.S. DVDs to learn english. I have no sources for this one though. It's just stuff I've heard.
27th-Jan-2011 10:00 pm (UTC) - And hells yeah, Detective Conan icon
I just checked and it DOES have the English dub, along with English subtitles. FREAKING. AWESOME.

DUDE, SO BEYOND AWESOME. Now I need to find out how to import this shit ASAP.

YesAsia and CDJapan both have it. I got mine from CDJapan, and it looks like they still have limited editions left (I thiiiiink the limited edition bonus is the poster, because it's not listed in the regular listing, but I'm not sure).

Very nice, thank you for sharing! I wonder if they'll be releasing the hi-def stateside, I know they did with Seven Samurai and some others... if so, darn it why did I buy it on DVD so recently!

At the end of each episode, does it now say WHAT'S NEXT ON AWESOME BLURAY BACCANO, THE BEST SHOW EVER ... ?
2nd-Feb-2011 08:14 pm (UTC)
*one of the best shows ever. Fix'd.

And for the record, to theperson who posted those pics and all, it's not the best BD release or the best series ever. It's obviously not the best BD since it's an upscale, and it's "one" of the best series, but not the best. :P

How are the subs on this btw? Are they decent subs? I'm considering buying it.
28th-Jan-2011 04:01 pm (UTC)
I believe the subs are the Funimation ones. I'd have to check against my others, but I'm pretty sure they are. The font used is different than the one Funi uses though, but I like it more. It's a bit heavier and a bit taller, so I find it to be a tiny bit easier to read. It's really quite a nice release! =D

I love Katsumi Enami's art style. Now the blood Baccano will look even more beautiful. Must import. NOW.

I lol'd when I compared the first two cover pictures. The Blu-ray sticker hid Claire's face! >3>

8th-Feb-2011 02:35 am (UTC) - inedit chapter?
hello! i wanted to ask you, because there were rumors on the internet that the BD realese suposed to have an inedit chapter of the show, so did it? or was the full show plus the ovas only?
8th-Feb-2011 03:34 am (UTC) - Re: inedit chapter?
I'm not sure what you mean. An unedited chapter or a bonus video or something? It's all as-aired on TV (Which was not censored, to the best of my knowledge), and there are unfortunately no extra videos… in fact, it seems the only extra videos are the clean opening and ending.
8th-Feb-2011 05:16 am (UTC) - Re: inedit chapter?
rumors said it was suppossed to have an extra ova, dont know if new or unedited, but well, i think it didnt came =(, thanks for answering!
