Arslan’s heroic tales will get releases that are legendary, indeed.
Yesterday, the official The Heroic Legend of Arslan anime website announced that the show’s limited edition DVD and Blu-Ray releases will add anime and manga to the mix. The first four volumes will include four four-panel manga strips (one for each episode). Each strip will be joined by a short anime adaptation.
The first of eight planned volumes will hit Japanese retailers on July 23, with a suggested price of 6,800 yen ($56.96 USD) for the DVD edition and 7,800 yen ($65.34 USD) for the Blu-Ray. The final volume, which includes episodes 23 through 25, is scheduled for a February 24, 2016 release.
Odd-numbered volumes will bundle the “Pars Military Official Resource: Strategy Meeting Kit,” which includes the first volume’s “Strategic Point Map.” Even-numbered volumes will ship with drama CDs that were supervised by Arakawa.
A 30-second commercial for the first Blu-Ray began airing on Japanese TV yesterday. You can check it out below:
