    This is an excellent choice and a beautiful piece. I love the watercolor look of it, especially the LE box.

      Very beautiful piece of artwork there that's a great representation of the show's dramatic and melancholy mood. I wonder what the deal is with the name change as it already has an English name given by the Japanese source material that was used during the broadcast period.

          Just a gorgeous package this is, and very reflective of the show's grim nature. I especially like that poster that shows the scene in the ending animation. I just hope that Mary appears on the other side of the box seeing that she's an important character that doesn't appear until the middle of the show.

            Man all the art used for this release are just amazing. The box, covers, artcards, and even the reverible covers. That poster is an extra bonus. I always loved that piece.

              I'll probably go standard but this is a really nice looking set.

              On a side note I only just realized they changed the name, shame really as I quite liked the 'of Fantasy and Ash'.

                Definitely LE for me - really beautiful artwork for these. And, I actually prefer this new title over the original. I need to preview some of this series, have not seen it yet, but this is one of those cases of the packaging and artwork selling the series to me as a blind buy...

                    Quick pic of the back of the artbox and the other side of the extras box. The artbox itself has sort of a canvas texture to it (AoA's R.O.D. BD box has a similar texture) and the title is done in gold foil.

                      I really like what Funimation is doing with these boxes adding much more life to them. First, there's the glossy character shot on My Hero Academia, and now this. Anyway, it's fitting given something that happens in the show.
