The official website for Oh! great's Air Gear racing tournament manga announced on Wednesday that the 32nd manga volume will ship in a limited edition with a new anime DVD on June 17.
The DVD will contain "Trick 3" (episode 3) of the Air Gear: Kuro no Hane to Nemuri no Mori -Break on the Sky- (Air Gear: The Black Wings and the Sleeping Forest -Break on the Sky-) anime project. In particular, it will continue the "legendary" battle between the Kogarasumaru team and the first Sleeping Forest team from the 24th and 25th manga volumes. It will also have an illustration gallery and audio commentary.
The official website posted the staff and cast lists for the third anime DVD, new comments from the cast, and a promotional video:
The manga creator "Oh! great" (Ōgure-Ito) launched his Air Gear manga series in Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2002. Del Rey published the manga's 15th, 16th, and 17th volumes in one combined bumper volume in North America last August, although Kodansha Comics will take over the series as of the 18th volume in June. ADV Films had once released Toei's 2006 television anime version of Air Gear in North America, and Funimation has released this earlier anime on DVD and on the web.
