Seraph - Is there another art book coming out ?

Hi,
as I said in my presentation post, I am from Italy and I would really like to buy the DVD of this masterpiece. I was looking for it on the web, but it looks like there's no distribution for this work in my country at the moment.
I'm very disappointed Sad
How can I do to have the DVD of this movie? Is there at least an English version (or with english subs) that I can buy out there and that I can watch with my DVD player (I'm thinking about the regional limitation)?

Hey Gian,

Right now, 5cm is only available in English, Japanese, Russian and Chinese (according to Anime News Network). The English version has English subtitles. It's a Region 1 DVD. I checked and Italy uses Region 2 DVDs.

Now, I believe the Blu-Ray DVD is region free, meaning that it can be played on any Blu-Ray DVD player. (Someone correct me on this.) That may be your best way of owning and watching a copy. Hope that helped.

Sad

Thanks again gleowine. I think that even if I pray on my knees mr Shinkai-san I won't get a copy of 5cm that works in Italy.

The only solution for me is to check if a pc dvd reader can read region 1 dvd and then buy the English one or check if Blu-Ray has regional limitation as you suggested!

I think BluRay has regions as well ... I know the US is the same region as Japan so I got the BluRay from Amazon.jp.

Hmmmm ... I'll have to check into this further.

Only bad news!
OK, if this is the situation, the only solution is to buy a DVD, rip it and make it region free. Only in this way I can watch his works in a DVD quality here in Italy.

So sad!
