posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official Twitter account for the Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere anime series revealed on Saturday that the anime series is getting a Blu-ray Disc box set on December 21. The box set will include both seasons of the anime. Special bonuses include a new novel written by original light novel creator Minoru Kawakami, new bonus music (to accompany the new novel with lyrics written by Kawakami), and an "all-new bonus animation." The set will include English subtitles.
Based on the eight-book series by Kawakami, the ecchi sci-fi story takes place in a distant future. Inhabitants created a history book called “Testament” and follow its contents to reproduce the events in history. After retrieving Horizon from the Testament Union following the Mikawa Uprising, Tori and the others seek out the Armor of Deadly Sins, Horizon's emotions, and head for their next destination, the floating isle, England, on board their flying city-warship, Musashi. However, Tres España is also beginning to sail for the Battle of the Armada.
The first 13-episode season premiered in October 2011. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2012. The 13-episode Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere II anime premiered in July 2012, and Crunchyroll again streamed the series as it aired. Sentai Filmworks released the season on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2013.
Sentai Filmworks later released both seasons in a complete collection set on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2016.
