It’s not great that customers have to do the work to fix a problem that never should’ve happened, but at least we’re only a few weeks away from getting the 4K HDR experience we expected. Otherwise, the special features and included booklet are impressive and feel worth the $37.99 price, but only if the follow-up disc corrects Akira’s missing HDR problem.
For those of you who would like to request the 4K HDR version of AKIRA, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (US/CA) or akira4kreplacementUK@funimation.com (UK/IRE) with “AKIRA 4K” as the subject, and provide your name, mailing address, email address and proof of purchase (receipt or confirmation email and photo of the disc).
If you’re unable to provide a receipt or confirmation email as proof of purchase, you will be requested to send your current disc to Funimation. So fret not if you get the AKIRA 4K Limited Edition for Christmas, you can still upgrade your disc!
