Croisée TV Anime's BD/DVD Volumes to Add SD Specials (Updated)
posted on by Egan Loo
The first Blu-ray Disc/DVD volume for La croisée dans un labyrinthe étranger (Ikoku Meiro no Croisée) television anime series will include a newly produced SD "Yune & Alice" special short, "Costume Chapter," as a video bonus extra. The first volume will also have the credit-less opening and ending animation sequences, as well as the Club AT-X "Double R" video extra.
The limited first edition of the volume will add the first of an assortment of CDs. The first special CD will have tracks by composer ko-ko-ya which will be not included in the regular soundtrack release.
The story in Hinata Takeda's original manga follows a girl named Yune who arrives in the lower-class neighborhoods of Paris in the last half of the 19th century, when Japanese culture gains popularity in Europe. She ends up working at an ironworks shop with a boy named Claude.
The anime will premiere in Japan this summer.
