The box jacket for the limited edition of idol group Momoiro Clover Z's “MomoClo Aki no 2 Dai Matsuri” concert DVD and Blu-ray Disc sets will use art by Tetsuo Hara, the artist best known for the Fist of the North Star manga.
The MomoClo Aki no 2 Dai Matsuri DVD and Blu-ray sets contain two concerts: The “Girl's Festival,” a concert held in October which only allowed female customers, and the “Guy's Festival,” the other concert held a month later that was only open to male customers. Hara's artwork depicts the Guy's Festival. Nobuaki Kakuda, Japanese Seidokaikan karate martial artist and a fan of Fist of the North Star, attended the Guy's Festival. In total, including viewings at movie theaters, the concert was viewed by over 14,000 people.
The Blu-ray version of the box will cost 11,340 yen (about US$125), while the DVD version will cost 9,240 yen (about US$100). Both box sets will be released on February 27.
