Yuruyuri OVA's Home Video Release Promo Streamed

posted on by Sarah Nelkin
1st edition Blu-ray/DVD comes with director's cut version of anime

Pony Canyon began streaming a video promoting the Blu-ray and DVD home video release of the original video animation Yuruyuri Nachu Yachumi! (a deliberate misspelling of "natsu yasumi," or "summer vacation") on Saturday.

First copies of the OVA will include the director's cut of the OVA, which includes scenes not seen in its original theater run. It will also have an original soundtrack, creditless opening and ending sequences, and two trailers. The Blu-ray and DVD will also come with a code to apply to purchase a ticket for an upcoming "Nana Mori Chū Yagai Fes" (Nana Mori Middle School Outdoor Festival) event. The Blu-ray and DVD will ship in Japan on February 18.

The OVA premiered in five theaters in Japan on November 29.

The cast remains the same from the earlier anime, but the staff changed. Hiroyuki Hata (Kamichu!, Recently, my sister is unusual.) replaced Masahiko Ohta as director. Michiko Yokote (Red Data Girl, Squid Girl) handled the scripts, and Motohiro Taniguchi ( To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness, Recently, my sister is unusual. animation director) replaced character designer Chiaki Nakajima and served as chief animation director. The project was animated at TYO Animation (Tamayura - Hitotose) instead of Dogakobo.

The Yuruyuri anime adapts Namori's manga about four fun-loving schoolgirls who take over the former room of a tea ceremony club for their own "Gorakubu" (amusement club).

The first anime series premiered in Japan in July 2011, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. The 12-episode sequel series Yuruyuri♪♪ aired in 2012, and Crunchyroll also streamed that series as it aired. JManga and ALC Publishing released part of the original manga digitally in English before JManga shut down last year. NISA has licensed and released both seasons in North America.
