Avex Marketing is offering the first Blu-ray Boxes for the 117-episode Galaxy Express 999 television anime series (1978) starting March 5, 2014. There will be seven boxes (two on March 5, two on July 25, one on August 22, and two on December 19) for 28,000 yen (about US$290) each.
The television anime will get noise/color corrections, Seigen Ono's audio mastering, and other improvements. The final box will include a compilation episode, six Internet anime episodes, and the extras from the previous DVD release (without the new mastering that the television anime itself is getting): the first episode preview, clean opening and ending animation sequences, and the 3D CG Glass no Clair Preshow.
People who pre-order all seven boxes will receive a bonus Blu-ray Disc with the 2007 anime shorts "Galaxy Express 999: The Starry Sky is a Time Machine: The Solar System and the Extinction of the Dinosaurs" and the 2009 "Ginga Tetsudo 999: Diamond Ring no Achira e" short.
