A promotional image for the special edition of the fourth volume of Meme Higashiya's four-panel manga Recorder and Randsell revealed this week that the book will bundle a DVD with anime unaired in the television series adaptation. The publisher Takeshobo will release the fourth volume on July 17, and the edition will also include an exclusive booklet.
The anime adaptation's official website announced on Tuesday that the first season DVD and Blu-Ray Disc releases will ship in Japan on April 20. The website also announced last week that the series will continue with a second season titled Recorder and Randsell Re. Director Hiroshi Kimura and the first season's main cast will return for the sequel series, which Dream Creation will again produce and the studio Seven will again animate.
Higashiya's story revolves around Atsushi Miyagawa and his sister Atsumi Miyagawa. Atsushi looks like an adult at 180 centimeters (about 71 inches) tall, but he is actually an elementary school boy. Atsumi looks like a little girl at 137 centimeters (54 inches) tall, but she is actually in high school.
The manga launched in Takeshobo's Manga Club Original magazine in 2007, and it also runs in Takeshobo's Manga Life Original magazine. Crunchyroll is streaming the first television anime series outside of Japan. The JManga website is hosting the original manga.
