It’s a pretty wild flex. But I wonder if the fact it’s on Bluray and given that American discs work on Japanese players means that this release will be on the pricey side? I’m thinking back to the days of Bandai Visual USA. Fans were complaining about their prices as compared to releases from BEI, Funimation and such and that was basically their defense—reverse importers.
