Ajin: Demi-Human Original Anime DVD Promo Previews 'Shinya Nakamura Incident'

Anime episode bundled with 8th volume ships on May 6

King Records began streaming a promotional video on Tuesday for the original anime DVD (OAD) bundled with the limited edition of the eighth volume of Gamon Sakurai's Ajin - Demi-Human manga.

Both the regular and limited edition of the eighth volume will ship on May 6. The limited edition will cost 3,600 yen (about US$29.50).

The official website of the manga previously teased the OAD's story:

The Ajin Control Committee's most feared worst-case scenario: "The Shinya Nakamura Incident."
The truth will finally be revealed!
The story of the country's first Ajin will get a forbidden anime adaptation!

The cast includes Yuuki Kaji, Takuya Eguchi, Sumire Uesaka, and Makoto Furukawa.

Hiroaki Ando will direct the anime at Polygon Pictures, with script supervision by Hiroshi Seko. Both are returning from the manga's film and television anime adaptation. Kenta Ihara is penning the script.

Netflix streamed new episodes of the television anime series in Japan three days after they aired on television, and streamed the full series outside of Japan after it finished airing.

Sakurai launched the manga in Kodansha's Good! Afternoon magazine in 2012, and Kodansha published the seventh compiled book volume in Japan in November. Vertical will publish the seventh volume in North America on February 23. Crunchyroll is posting new chapters as Kodansha publishes them in Japan.
