I would be lying if I said that upon seeing this glorious image of the series logo in modified for my native language didn't almost bring tears of joy to my eyes. Aniplex has answered my (and thousands of other Type Moon fans') prayers and will be bringing the Kara no Kyoukai bluray box set to US shores
on February 8th, 2011.
Before I say anything else, let me state this very clearly: THIS BOX SET IS AIMED AT ALREADY EXISTING FANS OF THE SERIES. I don't mean to scare off potentially interested viewers, but one glance at the $400 USD pricetag and it's pretty evident. All 7 movies on bluray in 1080p with (proper) English subtitles
, the new never before seen Epilogue OVA, the Seventh Heaven -Remix- Recap movie, an extensive artbook encompassing all of the key frame animations and much of the production art and interviews (for which the US release is coming with a translated into English version) - you are definitely getting a lot of bang for the buck, but if you aren't an absolute diehard fan of the series then this collection probably isn't for you.
Needless to say, I am going to be putting forth my best effort to save up and buy this collection.
Even if it means getting my hand cut off in the process...
