News Kimi ni Todoke BD-Box to Add New Anime Bonus Extra
posted on 2011-07-12 12:00 EDT
A Blu-ray Disc box of both seasons of the Kimi ni Todoke anime will ship on September 21 with a new anime short as a bonus extra. Production I.G, the studio that adapted Karuho Shiina's Kimi ni Todoke manga into anime, is producing a new "Mini-Todo Gekijō: Romeo to Juliet 3D" (Mini-Todo Theater: Romeo & Juliet 3D) anime exclusively for the limited first-pressing BD-Box of the entire anime series. The complete series box, which will cost 42,000 yen (US$527), will also have an audio bonus extra called "Mini-Todo Gekijō: Romeo to Juliet, Sore Kara…" (Mini-Todo Theater: Romeo & Juliet, and Then…)
Each of the two seasons will also be available in separate BD-Boxes on September 21 for 26,250 and 15,750 yen (US$329 and US$197), respectively. However, these standalone season boxes will not have the new "Romeo & Juliet" extras that the first pressing of the complete Kimi ni Todoke 1st & 2nd Season BD-Box will have. Shiina and anime character designer Yuka Shibata are illustrating the jacket covers for the complete series box.
Shiina's manga has 16 million copies in print. The first anime season premiered in the fall of 2009, and the second series premiered this past January. Earlier "Mini-Todo Gekijō" shorts were included with the later DVD volumes of the second season's DVDs.
