The North American distribution company New Video Group is listing on its website that it will release the Digimon Adventure 02 television anime series on DVD on March 26, 2013. The second season takes place four years after the end of the first season and features a new group of heroes.
The listing notes that, similar to the first season, the entire second season will be available in an eight-disc set with the English language track only. The set will include all 50 episodes and will retail for US$79.95.
New Video Group's release will mark the first time the series is being released on DVD in North America. Twentieth Century Fox and Buena Vista Home Entertainment both previously released part of the series on VHS in 2001 and 2002, respectively. Crunchyroll is currently streaming the entire series. The series premiered on TV in Japan and in the United States in 2000.
New Video Group previously released the first season on DVD on October 9.
Saban Brands announced in September that it has acquired the Digimon anime franchise outside of Asia, and it is working with MarVista Entertainment to distribute the series outside of Asia.
