Thread: UK tri. Part 4 Blu-ray Collector's Edition Release- Scans, Breakdown, and Overview

    UK tri. Part 4 Blu-ray Collector's Edition Release- Scans, Breakdown, and Overview

    Time for another UK release!



    Short wait for UKers this time, Digimon Adventure tri. Part 4 Loss came out in the UK only a week after the US release!


    I did some editing on these... and no scanning, because I didn't get the UK release (gotta decide where that money needs to go.) Thanks to forum member Kai, we have these images because he scanned them on his own and shared them to make sure the UK release could get featured, the same way we try and do for media whenever possible. So big thanks to Kai for putting in the time and effort.

    Most of what I did here was reorienting, cropping, and some minor editing. The scanner used was more meant for scanning documents and further editing likely would have made the final images look worse.


    I'm not going to to go over tri. Part 4 itself, but I did in the recent review of the US tri. Part 4 Blu-ray, which you can read here.


    The first thing worth mentioning is the UK Blu-ray release does not include a DVD like the US release did. So if you want the release on DVD, you'll need to get the standalone DVD version. The Blu-ray is labeled as a collector's edition, the DVD is not.




    The front cover of the collector's edition slipcover (at the top) is the home video cover for tri. Part 4 in Japan. The cover looks very nice overall. The logo placement is about as good as it could be and doesn't cover up anything important in the art.




    The back of the slipcover is very clean.



    In a number of ways it feels like this back cover was based off the digital motif used in the Japanese release. While it has a nice overall look, I'm still not sure I like the text and screencaps at an angle like that though.

    The red and white go with each other quite well, so we don't have the issues we did with Part 3 where it had yellow and black which was unpleasant to look at.

    The back also has extras listed, along with various technical specs.





    The spine of the slipcover looks nice. The number on the red lines up perfectly with how prior releases used grey, green, and yellow.





    The actual BD cover insert itself is basically what you expect, roughly the same as what was used on the slipcover, just in insert form.



    And the insert is reversible!



    This one uses the theatrical poster from tri. Part 4, and uses different logo placement than the Shout release did. In addition, due to the different logo placement. It looks very nice and there are far less logos and other required things, since this cover won't ever be consumer facing in stores. The back cover also inverts the colors of the background.) It's a very nice looking cover, and I wouldn't be shocked if many people swap their covers to this version (especially since the main cover is nearly 1:1 to the slipcover.)



    The tri. style motif continues to the disc...




    The disc looks very nice and clean. It has the various logos on it, but otherwise sticks to the tri. style motif that is used elsewhere in this release (which was originally used in various Japanese tri. releases.) The pinkish/red used for the digital motif is visible enough, but something closer to white would have let them stand out a bit more.



    The release also includes a few physical extras.






    These four art cards each uses a different piece of art that'll most likely be familiar to tri. fans. Each looks very nice, and I expect they'll look extra fantastic if anyone decides to frame them.

    And Gomamon finally shows up! We didn't think he was going to show up for Part 4 either, but he finally got one!


    The other extra is a poster.



    The poster is too large to get on a scanner, but Kai took a photo just to show what it looks like. It looks roughly the same as the reversible cover, but with a bit of reformatting (since the poster is much larger) along with the image itself being a bit more vertical (since it doesn't have to fit the height of a BD cover.)




    I can't go over the on disk content in detail since I don't have it, but I can go over the few things I do know.


    The video is listed as 1080p. I expect that'll be at 24fps, same as the US disc (and quite possibly may be the same encode.)

    Audio is listed as being DTS-HD Master Audio, which is lossless. It's listed as having both a 5.1 and 2.0 English track, along with a 2.0 Japanese track. This is different than the US release which had 5.1 Japanese audio.

    It is also listed as having English subtitles.



    The on disc extra is listed as the same as on the US release, so I'll include what I said about them in the US review:
    We get the catch up feature that aired prior to Part 4 in theaters in the US, titled "The Evolution So Far, with Joshua Seth."

    It's a rather fun, roughly 10 minute long, extra that acts rather similiar to the digest versions of tri. that Toei has released. Joshua Seth provides narration, along with the occasional cutaway joke, to either refresh you or catch you up before watching tri. Part 4.

    It's short, it's nice, but I can also see people not liking it based on what they are looking for from extra features.




    That's it for this one. The UK release was a really short wait this time and it appears to be a pretty good release that is roughly equivalent to what we got in the USA. If you prefer art cards, a reversible cover, and a poster, the UK one is better. If you prefer a DVD and digital copy the US one is better. I think there are likely arguments to be made about either one.


    Big thanks again to Kai for the scans, which can be found in our gallery.


    If you have any questions about the release feel free to ask, we have quite a few members from the UK and I'm sure they'd be willing to answer questions from those of you trying to decide if you should buy the release.



    If I'm able to in the future I will attempt to get ahold of a copy of the disc to expand the breakdown, similiar to what I would normally do.



    Lots of Digimon stuff is coming out soon and supporting us via our Patreon or donations would be greatly appreciated so that we can do more breakdowns and improve the site. Feel free to join us in the Discord if you want to chat about the Blu-ray or tri.

    So does anyone know which release would be cheaper for me to import - the UK BD or the US BD?

    From the links Marc gave, the UK Blue Ray is 19.99 and the conversion for the US Blue Ray is 11.03.

    That's really a shame. I'd have liked to own that huge poster that comes with the UK BD.

    Sometimes it is worth paying that little bit extra for what you want.

    I agree, and I'd totally pay up if I actually earned any money at all. But I'm an undergrad student in India, living off my parents' money.
