posted on 2014-09-06 13:40 EDT by Egan Loo
The Blu-ray Disc Box for P.A. Works' Tari Tari television anime will include a new seven-minute anime as a bonus extra on December 17. The bonus anime will feature a new Shirahamazaka High School Choir Club song as its theme.
The 306-minute box will cost 28,000 yen (about US$270). It will include 6 Blu-ray Discs with all 13 television anime episodes.
In addition to the new anime, the bonus extras will include a box illustrated by original character designer tanu, a 100-page full-color booklet that collects the booklet pages from the previous individual volume releases, the clean opening and ending sequences, promotional videos and commercials, and footage from the Shirahamazaka High School Fan Appreciation event. It will also have in-character audio commentaries and staff commentaries. The online canime.jp shop will offer an exclusive bonus extra CD with the Shirahamazaka High School Choir Club song from the new anime.
The story centers around five Japanese high school students who are too young to be called adults, but who no longer think of themselves as children. Wakana Sakai (Ayahi Takagaki) once took music lessons, but she withdrew from music after losing her mother. Konatsu Miyamoto (Asami Seto) is a positive-thinking girl who loves singing and spends time after school at the choir club. Sawa Okita (Saori Hayami) is a spirited archery club member who dreams of becoming a horse rider. Taichi Tanaka (Nobunaga Shimazaki) is a chronically late badminton team member who lives with his college student sister. "Wiin" (Natsuki Hanae) just transferred into Wakana's class after 12 years abroad in Australia. Music brings Wakana, Konatsu, Sawa and the others together into an ensemble during their last summer in high school.
