Bandai Visual will release the first Blu-ray Disc volume of the Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere* (Kyōkai Senjō no Horizon) with English subtitles in Japan on December 22. Bandai Visual had confirmed on Saturday that the anime will have Blu-ray Discs at retail, but not DVDs.
The regular edition Blu-ray will have the first episode, promotional videos, commercials, the first pre-broadcast introduction video for the characters on the Musashi, and the first pre-broadcast video seminar on the Far East setting of the story.
The limited first edition will also bundle the novel Genesis Series: Kyōkai Senjō no Horizon Kimi to Asa Made I by original author Minoru Kawakami, a special CD with music tied to the novel, and an exclusive eight-page booklet. The limited first edition will also have footage from the press conference announcing the anime (with Jun Fukuyama, Minori Chihara, Minoru Shiraishi, and director Manabu Ono), audio character commentary, a package illustrated by character designer Tomoyuki Fujii, and a clear case.
The anime will premiere in Japan on October 1.
* The production comittee decided that the official English title will be Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere instead of the previously used Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere.
