    Demon Slayer was one more Aniplex title I didn't watch streaming and edged away from the obvious interest of others towards, filtered as it were through a long-cellared vintage of sour grapes; that an economy edition would come to pass was a real surprise to me. "Of course" the cover art for this edition would look a bit bland somehow, and that's supposing nothing about what's going to happen to the video on the discs inside... Still, the chance to offer some feeble counterargument to "obviously appealing to a high-end audience works; 'the mass market' is just about extinct, anyway" isn't something I'm about to write off right away.

      It does seem like this was designed to look especially "standard" to contrast Aniplex's premium alternative. Still, it's a good-looking show, so you can't really go wrong. I don't love the spine, though. At any rate, there was never any chance that I wasn't getting the premium releases, but I hope the more casual fans find this release at least serviceable.

        The promo image works OK as a cover, though that spine is pretty meh.

          Cover art looks fine, and I like how the back places emphasis of this being the best show of last year. That said, the white spine does not really fit in.

            I like the black updated spine a whole lot more than the white original

              Infinitely better spine. I wonder if the original one was actually a placeholder, because that's exactly what it looks like, especially in comparison.

                  2 changes this has is there's no longer a FUNimation Digital Copy, which is likely what got it pulled initially to begin with, Aniplex Japan not wanting there to be a digital copy, and the audio tracks are now both Linear PCM stereo rather than Dolby TrueHD with the English track being 5.1.

                    Much better spine there as it just looks awkward with the white spine between black covers. Now it's black all-around and it is great.
