I already have the US 4K steel, but I'm tempted to double dip on this. If the slip and steel are finished well (and manga don't fu^k up another 4K disc) this could be worthwhile, particularly at that price point. Steel looks embossed from the mockup too.

Absolutely perfect, placed an order. Will be swapping in my Japanese 4K discs as seen below (in an unrelated SteelBook), should look great!

I do have the US SteelBook and discs (of which I assume the UK release is the same) but the Japanese discs and this SteelBook are nicer.

Fairly sure they won't be. US discs are lionsgate and these are manga entertainment, who have yet to use dolby vision or atmos. More than likely to be the same as the bandai Japanese 4K disc, with an added 5.1 English track. Happy to be proven wrong though, would make the choice to move on the US steel easier if I end up preferring this one once it's in hand.
