With the recent release of Bakemonogatari on Blu-ray in North America on Nov 20th, I saw a spark of hope that it may eventually make its way across the pond. However I have heard nothing about it since and as far as I'm aware the series hasn't been lisenced for a UK release. I've had a quick Google and the only articles/forums I can find are vastly outdated so I was wondering if anyone who is better informed than me might know if there is a chance that this will happen?
I can't help but feel that the UK gets screwed when it comes to DVD releases of awesome anime.

Or you could possibly import it. You know like a sensible human being.

With the three companies Manga, MvM and the newly made Anime Limted. I would be really surprised if it wasn't picked up by someone over here.

A quick look at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.jp show that the North American BD for this series retails for $186.97, while the Japanese release retails for ¥21,452. A quick exchange conversion shows that the Japanese version is almost US$100 more. In terms of Sterling, the Japanese version is £150 and the US version £117. Not as dramatic a difference, I guess--but, completely irrelevant for the OP anyway, since the BD region is the same for Japan and the US, but not for the UK. So unless he has a region-free BD player, he can't "import it" from either place.

So I'm sure the poster would like a) a price that matches the general economy of his country and b) a BD that will actually play on his television.
