Cruchyroll has put out its schedule of Blu-Ray releases for this May. Why should you still buy Blu-Rays? Because, for one thing, all the digital titles people owned under the Funimation label are now null and void. Those who bought the titles on disc don’t have problems like this.
Last October the news broke that nationwide chain Best Buy was planning to get rid of the main reason people originally went there in the first place. A rep from the company confirmed that, come January of 2024, they planned to stop selling movies and TV shows on DVD and Blu-Ray. In fact, the departure is complete — they wouldn’t even offer them online. It’s 2024 now, so was Best Buy serious? Early reports suggest that….they were. Bleah.
You’ll want to get out of your chair for this one: Suzume, Makoto Shinkai’s latest anime feature film, now has a date for its own physical Blu-Ray release. Crunchyroll made the announcement this morning.
The second season of Spy x Family is currently running on Crunchyroll and affiliated places. If you’ve been wondering when it will go physical, we got our answer today. Crunchyroll announced a full Blu-Ray set for Spy x Family Part 2 is coming in February.
Crunchyroll is still committed to physical releases and will support some of its more popular titles with disc pressings in 2024, starting off with these titles.
There was a rumor flying through the Net yesterday we were hoping wasn’t real, but today actual confirmation came out. Best Buy says they’re eliminating Blu-Ray and DVD movies from their stores starting early next year. We don’t just mean from the physical locations — we mean you won’t even be able to buy a movie on disc from their online store.
Though I wanted to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem in the theater, I never had the time. And I’m not pleased by that fact, since this kind of cool animation style was made to be seen on a big screen. The movie is available digitally now, but I don’t have many other reasons to seek out a Paramount+ subscription.
Crunchyroll announced its slate of releases for the holiday season today, and headlining them is the disc release of My Hero Academia’s latest half-season.
We promised we’d pass along more info about the horror parody Caddy Hack when we got it, and something just came in. Wild Eye Releasing has announced a date for the home release of the film. Digital will get it first October 10, followed by the Blu-Ray release on October 24.
You probably know by now that The Walt Disney Company is 100 years old this year. The”Disney100″ branding on most products issued out in 2023 is designed to make sure everybody knows. But the celebration comes at an awkward time, as the studio is currently filming nothing while a bitter strike rages outside its walls. At this time they’d rather magnify the past, not the present.
Though most of Amazon’s current TV content remains restricted to a digital format, you don’t need a Prime subscription to watch their current biggest hit, The Boys (though you have to wait a while if this is your preferred format). The show’s third season will be pressed to physical discs next month.
So how do you like it in the future, folks? You have an instant library filled with hundreds of shows, BUT the fee to access that library goes up every year, and your favorite shows can be pulled from that library without warning. Now I bet you’re not so eager to declare physical media “obsolete,” are you?
