posted on by Egan Loo
The "Finale Screening" for the Toaru Majutsu no Index: Endymion no Kiseki (A Certain Magical Index: The Miracle of Endymion) anime film revealed on Friday that the film will ship on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in Japan on August 28. According to the anime's website, the special editions will have a bonus disc with a making-of video and bonus anime.
Original novel illustrator Kiyotaka Haimura is drawing the art for the special editions' boxes, which will include a soundtrack CD, a 64-page booklet, a miniature replica of the dialogue recording script, and a reproduction film. Both the regular and special editions will have audio commentaries.
In the movie's all-new story, the main characters Touma Kamijo and Index encounter a level 0 girl named Arisa just before the completion of the Academy City space elevator "Endymion." Hiroshi Nishikiori (Magic Tree House, Azumanga Daioh, Angelic Layer) returned to direct the film at the studio J.C. Staff (with CG produced by SANZIGEN). Hiroyuki Yoshino (Macross Frontier, Accel World, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion) scripted the film based on the original novels' author Kazuma Kamachi's new story.
