    Well that was quick. About what I'd expect from their recent Fruits Basket release aesthetic, which in turn was lifted pretty directly from a corresponding Japanese release anyway. Not blowing me away, but I don't know that I have any particular complaints either.

            Oh I don't like that the box looks like it's going to be a MHA Season 2 Parts 1 and 2 Limited Editions.

              Oh god no, please don't pull another MHA S2 LE and split the season into 2 separate LE's hated that.

                I prefer group shots for covers, but this is a lovely illustration.

                  I'll have to wait until I see the finalized product, but that box just isn't proportioned right. I'm hoping that they don't pull that shelf-hogging crap they did with the second season of MHA where not only did they widen the box, but giving the second half its own LE. Anyway, I'm just surprised that it's coming out this soon.

                    This looks like a very strangely shaped box. Hopefully it turns out better in practice.

                      Yea hope it's shaped like a standard BD/DVD artbox. If they stick with the horizontal layout, maybe it'll still be standard dimensions like the Franxx and Black Lagoon LE/CE's. Fingers crossed to hoping one of those is the case. Wouldn't be too pumped if it turned out to a huge monstrosity like those Gundam IBO LE Boxes (luckily it came with a normal artbox in it for just the series).

                        I hope the box ends up using different art.

                              Welp this release is a major letdown for such a great show. Oddly sized artbox (assuming it is one and not one like the Gundam IBO LE's) not to ention the lazy reused artwork for both covers. What puts the nail in the coffin has to be Funi pulling the MHA S2 LE ridiculous-ness by giving each cour a separate LE. So disappointed. Was expecting an amazing LE since I really enjoyed this show. Guess I'll be sticking with the standard edition instead.
