Lost in Translation
The DVD and Blu-ray volumes of the Kuragehime anime series will include unaired "Heroes" ("Eiyū Retsuden") episodes as bonus extras when they begin shipping on January 28, 2011. Each of the four volumes from January and April will have one episode.
Akiko Higashimura, the creator of the original Kuragehime manga, drew the Kuragehime Heroes manga as spinoff shorts in Kodansha's Kiss Plus magazine, but they were not included in the tankōbon (compiled book volumes) for Kuragehime. Kodansha is posting these four manga shorts online to celebrate the television broadcast of the Kuragehime anime. (The online manga shorts require the Crochet browser plug-in.)
Updated The first Blu-ray/DVD volume will also include "Tsukimi & Jiji-sama to Iku Kurage Kanshō Tour" with voice actresses Kana Hanazawa and Mamiko Noto. A limited number of the first pressing of the first volume will bundle a talking mascot figure of the main character's jellyfish pet, Kurara.
