Thread: UK tri. Part 5 Blu-ray Collector's Edition Release- Scans, Breakdown, and Overview

    UK tri. Part 5 Blu-ray Collector's Edition Release- Scans, Breakdown, and Overview

    Time for a new UK release!

    The UKers finally get a head start! Digimon Adventure tri. Part 5 Coexistence came out in the UK a week before 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 editing. The scanner used was more meant for scanning documents and further editing likely would have made the final images look worse. I did a bit more editing than I normally do for the UK breakdowns due to some scanning issues, and a bit of physical damage to the packaging.

    I'm not going to to go over tri. Part 5 itself, but I did in the recent review of the US tri. Part 5 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 5 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 pink and white go with each other quite well and is pleasant 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 pink lines up perfectly with how prior releases used grey, green, yellow, and pink.

    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 5, 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 grey-pink 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 use slightly less familiar art then we've seen in prior releases, which based on your preference can either be a positive or negative.

    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, for both Japanese and English 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 interview with Johnny Yong Bosch that aired after Part 5 in theaters.

    It's a rather nice, roughly 10 minute long, extra that is a rather good EPK style interview. Arguably it's biggest flaw is that it seems to have little to do with tri. Part 5. Watching the interview you have to wonder if it was filmed to be included with tri. Part 3, but held back for later after they did the AX panel recording last year.

    Johnny is pretty honest in the interview about how he didn't know much about Digimon when he signed on for it, and the interview covers a number of elements including his thoughts on TK, his style and thoughts on dubbing anime, and even early interactions with fans regarding tri.

    Overall it feels like a much more focused interview than we saw in early interviews, and while somewhat short, it feels like it adds quite a bit to the package.

    That's it for this one. The UK release is a touch earlier than expected 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.

    There is also a discussion thread for the English release of tri. Part 5 here.

    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.

    I really love those posters. Now I'm sad I was sent the DVD instead lol

    Mostly joking but the DVD only came with the DVD and the reversible cover, you figure they'd at least put one card or something.
