ANN has confirmed that the North American distribution company New Video Group will release "The Official Digimon Adventure Set: The Complete First Season" on DVD on October 9, 2012. The set will contain all 54 episodes of the first season of Digimon Adventure on eight DVDs. This release will be the first anime release by the New York-based company.
The set will also include a 36-page guide booklet featuring the original seven characters plus photo galleries and behind-the-scenes sketches. The set will include only the English language audio track, and will retail for US$79.95.
New Video Group's release will mark the first time the entire first season has been released on DVD in North America. Twentieth Century Fox and Buena Vista Home Entertainment both previously released part of the series on DVD in 2000 and 2002, respectively.
The original Digimon Adventure television anime series premiered on TV in Japan and in the United States in 1999.
