Another short wait for UK fans!

Manga UK has announced
Digimon Adventure tri. Part 4 Loss will be released on April 30th!


The Blu-ray is listed as a Collector's Edition with a poster and art cards, while the DVD is a standard release, just like prior releases.

The cover art (like Parts 2 and 3) will be the Japanese home video cover art.

April 30th is the week after the US release. It's been mentioned in the past that the UK release has to be after the US release so they have access to the dub.


The Blu-ray is currently listed as £24.99 and the DVD is £19.99

Pre-order links from Amazon UK.

Update- Proper cover art and updated some details (like about the DVD version)

£24? jesus christ. Are they all that much? that's ridiculous. Most are no where near that, like I just went to a generic one for a current release and Paddington 2 is just over £10 on blueray

IIRC the DVDs are £15.99 and the Blu Rays have been £19.99. Don't remember them ever starting at £24.99 but they've been more expensive than regular Blu Rays (I'd normally expect £15 for a standard film). Although this could be an anime thing. Crunchyroll were offering a half price sale on a bunch of new Blu Ray releases. At half price, you'd pick up 12 episodes (either the full season or a part 1 of 24 episode series) for £25. So they wanted to charge nearly £50 for regular prices. Someone is off their rocker if they think people will reliably pay £100 to get Blu Rays for a 24 episode show. But it doesn't seem to be uncommon.

I think the most expensive home media I've purchased was the 4 season DVD collection releases of Digimon (the one with 32 disks) and even that felt way too expensive. Home media is becoming less and less of a desirable commodity with streaming so prevalent so everyone has to put prices up

That was the original price for Part 1 before it got discounted. Yeah, it sucks that they're more expensive than non-anime Blu-rays but I guess that's the price we're paying for a niche product ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Funnily enough I was wondering yesterday when (or even if*) this was going to get announced. Needless to say this news made my day.

*Yes, I'm that cynical.

It's 6 films rather than 24 episodes... that's just how Cruncyroll are doing it

But yeah, you'd be paying £150 for the entire series, that's crazy. I'd be thinking around £60 would be fair for all 6 together

I'm aware of that, I was commenting on Crunchyroll's release of other media. For example, they are doing Pre Orders for Re Zero Part 1 (so the first 12 episodes). The Blu Ray is at half price and costs £23 but they'd normally want to charge £46.59. Same pricing for Season 1 of Akashic Records (also 12 episodes). I remember picking up SAO Blu Rays, they were split into 6 episodes at £15 each. It's not just that Tri is expensive, anime Blu Rays in general seem to be expensive. For a film like Tri, I'd expect to pay £15 per Blu Ray, as that's online with normal Blu Ray costs. £20 maybe to cover the extra difficulties and lower demand. But no more.

Ah yeah, I do remember that actually. Remember thinking I wouldn't pick it up until it went down in price, or just wait for a collectors edition with all 6 films.
