The premium edition set will retail for US$69.99. The set will include a full-color art book with an interview with original author Go Nagai.
Ghastly Prince Enma Burning Up is the latest project from Go Nagai's Dororon Enma-kun supernatural anime and manga franchise. In the series, Enma (Kappei Yamaguchi), Yukiko (Mamiko Noto), and Kappavier (Takehito Koyasu) are members of a Demon Patrol who are sent to the human world to arrest demons. Yoshitomo Yonetani (Brigadoon, Betterman) directed the series at the studio Brains Base. The 12-episode series premiered in April 2011.
NISA had announced in July 2011 that it had acquired the rights to the series.
