Australian anime publisher Hanabee Entertainment are set to launch two anime films on December 3rd 2014, just in time for the holiday season to kick off. With Patema Inverted priced at $29.99 (DVD) / $39.99 (Blu-ray) and Short Peace priced at $29.99 (DVD) / $34.99 (Blu-ray), they are about the price you would usually expect to pay for a film in the Australian market. But are you after both titles and interested in shaving a few bucks off the price?
Hanabee have confirmed that buying both titles as part of a “Christmas Blu-ray Bundle” will take $4.99 off the price of each film, meaning that you can pick up both films on Blu-ray for $65.00 (Instead of $74.98) or both films on DVD for $50.00 (Instead of $59.98). Orders can be made HERE and HERE, and seem to be only available during the Christmas period.
