11th episode to be bundled with Blu-ray set shipping on Friday

Flying Dog began streaming a digest video on Monday to preview the Blu-ray Disc-exclusive episode 11 for the Recovery of an MMO Junkie (Netojū no Susume) anime series.

(Note: The first video below is region-locked and can't be viewed in the U.S., Mexico, South Korea, Australia, or New Zealand.)

The Blu-ray Disc box will include director's cut editions of the 10 episodes that aired on TV, as well as the 11th episode (featuring two stories), a drama CD, audio commentary for each episode, and a chance at a ticket to an event. The Blu-ray Disc box set will ship on Friday.

Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs with English subtitles, and Funimation began streaming the show's English dub on October 30.

Funimation describes the story:

30-year-old Moriko Morioka has given up on reality! Forget dating and responsibilities—she's escaping to the world of online gaming. Here, she starts a new life as the handsome character Hayashi who, while learning the game, receives help from a beauty named Lily. The longer she plays, the more attached she grows, and soon her online connection will lead to an exciting IRL encounter!

Kazuyoshi Yaginuma is directing the anime as Signal.MD (Ancien and the Magic Tablet, Atom The Beginning), and Saori Den is serving as assistant director. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Yatterman Night, Monster Musume) is handling series composition, Senbon Umishima (Black Bullet, She and Her Cat -Everything Flows-) is designing the characters, and Conisch (Hetalia: World Series, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) is composing the music.

The anime is based on Rin Kokuyo's Netojū no Susume (Recommendation of the Wonderful Virtual Life) manga. The manga runs on the Comico manga website and app, but has been on hiatus since July 2015 due to the author's health.
