We made this joke about another company, but get ready to spend your mortgage payment on this set!
Earlier today, Sentai Filmworks announced that they will release a limited edition boxed set for Legend of the Galactic Heroes. The set, which will have a 1,000 unit run, will retail for $799 when it hits retailers on July 24.
The 26-disc set will include the enitre Legend of the Galactic Heroes OVA series, as well as the three films. The box will also include the following:
- 200-Page Artbook
- Metal Collectible Coins
- 3D Art Cards
Sentai didn’t specify digital extras for the set, and explicitly stated that this would be the only home video run for the title.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes is a long-running anime series, based on Yoshiki Tanaka’s influential series of sci-fi novels. It was a passion project by late director Noboru Ishiguro (Macross, Megazone 23), and his Artland anime studio. Ishiguro spent over a decade adapting the works as OVAs and theatrical films. Over 100 installments were made between 1988 and 2000.
Sadly, he passed away in 2012, due to a lung infection.
Sentai streamed the series on HIDIVE last year, after the publisher announced that they licensed the show in 2015.
