The Japanese edition is more expensive at about $80. It basically shows you how overpriced Japanese editions are.

How's PQ on this one ? Thx !
In my opinion, the 4k is ok there's a little improvement over the Bluray but nothing major.
Personally, I only picked it up as I get most things Akira.
Its no way near worth the £50 originally asked for it but it's not a bad set with the current 40% off.
