The wraparound jacket band on the seventh compiled volume of Sakae Esuno's Big Order manga is announcing on Monday that the eighth volume will bundle an original anime Blu-ray Disc. The limited edition volume with the bundled anime is slated to ship in Japan on October 3.
The manga's story centers on an introverted high school student named Eiji Hoshimiya with a huge secret — he wished for the destruction of the world when he was younger. Fairies give certain people special powers called Orders. What Order Users can do with their power depends on their wishes. 10 years after the Great Destruction, Eiji struggles to come to terms with his immense power.
Esuno launched the supernatural manga series in Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine in 2011. The sixth compiled volume shipped in Japan in August, and the series has topped 800,000 copies.
Esuno ended the main series of his Mirai Nikki (Future Diary) manga in 2010. Tokyopop published 10 of the 12 manga volumes before shutting down its North American publishing operations in 2011. The original manga inspired an original video anime in 2010 and a television anime series in 2011. Funimation released the television anime in North America.
