Here’s one where I might have gone for the steel, but it’s pretty underwhelming, for me at least. Too cluttered, and with characters of all sizes and perspectives all over the place (yeah, I know it’s based off a poster). And what the heck is going on with Lupin from his tie-clip down? Still, loving the Marlon Brando lookielike at the top!
Hopefully the standard Blu will get a slipcover. That’ll be my bag, baby!
A lupin film getting a big screen release in america that's not the studio ghibili film! Crazy!
A current anime film that's not a DBZ Funimation/Fathom release? Crazy, but not unexpected!
(Usually we get the core-series, or the current artsies like "Your Name".)
The quick rush to Blu makes the theatrical release more "billboard" to promote it and hope for a Best Animated slot, but I'd rather have a shot at seeing them on the bigscreen anyway.
That's how I first saw Castle of Cagliostro, back in the Streamline Pictures days...
I love the Steelbook image at first glance, but it is really busy, and the foreshortening on Lupin's leg is just weird. Not wrong, necessarily, but weird. The standard disc will defintitely have a slip, as all GKIDs titles do initialy. Shout Factory guarantees slips for three months after release, then while supplies last.
