sorry didnt see :\
glad they're releasing the first movie too from fma. It was good. I'll get them both then.
I actually don't want them to release the first movie on Blu-ray.
For one thing, it's ridiculously cheap to import. You can get the Funimation BD, which is Region A and B for less than a tenner. There's no way that Manga will find the economy of scale to compete with that. And everytime they get burned on a Blu-ray release, that decreases the likelihood of them releasing more in the future.
The second thing is that Conqueror of Shamballa is a direct sequel to the first series, it concludes that storyline. Without the first series it's just a collection of pretty action scenes with no emotional weight, and without the first series available to buy in the UK, it's really only going to appeal to UK fans who have seen or own the first series, most of them will have the movie on DVD, so you have to persuade them to double dip.
I just want the dvd version so bd doesnt matter for me. If i can have region B over A, i can wait for a price drop. No problem. Im not that type that once it comes out, im gonna buy it. Regarding the region, unless the region A is far superior, i prefer always to buy region B.
And you're right when you say it doesnt make sense to release the first movie when the first serie isnt available anymore and because its a sequel. Anyway, i'll buy it once it gets too cheap.
