Funimation Licenses Sakura Wars Movie (DVD and Blu Ray)

Very nice that we'll be getting a Blu Ray release of this awesome movie. If you haven't seen it, it actually could be seen as a prequel of sorts to Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love featuring none other than Rachet Altair herself fighting alongside Japan's Flower Division as well as the Douglas-Stewart company which played a big part in the Sakura Wars V: Episode 0 prequel.

Here's hoping the cover art is better this time around as well.

That is news to me.

How is Funanimation with Region Lock on their Blu Ray?
Total lock down, Workaround or none?

Region A like most North American releases. I think I saw one or two covers that show Region B as well.

Hopefully the Sentai Work around will work on them

Quite a few Funimation Blu-rays are Region B compatible while others are locked. Only a couple of Sentai Filmworks titles are Region B compatible. But there's been some recent titles on Blu-ray that have had Geo-Locking on them.

But anyways, I have this movie on DVD Limited Edition and on UMD. But will gladly buy it on Blu-ray.

There is workaround for Sentai Filmworks for Region B
