posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
NIS America (NISA), the American subsidiary of the Nippon Ichi Software game company, announced at its panel at Anime Central on Saturday that it will release the Bunny Drop (Usagi Drop) television anime series in a premium edition on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on August 7. The release will include four bonus episodes and a hardcover art book.
The anime studio Production I.G adapted the 11-episode television anime series based on Yumi Unita's original manga. Yen Press released the fifth volume of the manga last month. In the manga and anime adaptation, 30-year-old bachelor Daikichi (Hiroshi Tsuchida) discovers a little girl named Rin (Ayu Matsuura) in his grandfather's garden while at his grandfather's funeral. Rin is the 6-year-old daughter of Daikichi's grandfather, and Daikichi decides to take her in when no one in the family accepts the responsibility.
