    Looks fine other than do they really need to have "reversable cover" stated on the the physcial cover? If they want to let people know they should put some kind of sticker on the front like they did with Soni-Ani.

      Not bad. Pretty standard, but I'm one of the 3 people that doesn't already own this movie so I'll probably be picking this up. If they're re-authoring the discs, this will actually be the DVD debut of Sentai's 2011 redub of this film, since their original DVD only had the old 2004 Animaze dub.

        This release feels like it deserves a shiny slipcover to go along with it.

          If this doesn't have a slipcover I'm gonna be surprised and disappointed.

            Could that Sentai Selects logo be any blander?

              So is this Sentai Selects line going to be Sentai's SAVE equivalent? A cheaper line of older titles?

              With that reversible cover bit I'm kinda getting that vibe?

                Well, it works as a cover art. But until I know what Sentai plans to do with their Selects line, that's as much as I can say.

                  Also a grey Sentai Selects banner is a lot better than a neon green SAVE banner.

                  It might vary depending on the cover though. This cover has a lot of grey, so it makes sense for the banner to be grey. It might have different colors on other covers to match their designs. I wish FUNi's SAVE line was more like this. I also wish it was just a banner at the top like this instead of something that takes up the whole cover.

                    I don't think it is so bad, small text and fairly unnoticeable. And it makes it clear it is reversible for those that hate banners (or small text saying reversible cover :D). The problem with a sticker is that it adds expense to production. So between a tiny bit of printed text, or not having any indication that it can be reversed at all, I would go with this.

                      Not as nice as Funimation's Classics line but definitely better than their SAVE line. The "reversible cover" text is unseemly and ruins it though. Would be much better without it.

                        Or they could list the reversible cover info as one of the extra's on the reverse side?

                            They actually kept the 'Reversible Cover' bit on the front? At least the spine does a better job than the Anime Classics and S.A.V.E. sets.

                              If this is the future of Sentai's own SAVE/Classic line then I can only say THANK YOU SENTAI! Seriously something that is cheap but doesn't look like crap. It has the logo on the spine which is great and how it should be, See Funimation, It's not hard!
