Original anime bundles with 3rd BD set

The official website for the television anime of Hiroyuki Kanno's Kono Yo no Hate de Koi o Utau Shōjo YU-NO (YU-NO: A girl who chants love at the bound of this world.) visual novel revealed on Wednesday that the series will get a completely new anime episode when the first Blu-ray Disc box set surpasses 1,000 pre-orders. The new episode will bundle with the third Blu-ray Disc box that will ship on December 26.

The first Blu-ray Disc box set will include the anime's episodes 1 to 8 and ship on August 28. The set costs 21,000 yen (about US$190), and the packaging will include original illustrations from staff members.

The anime premiered in Japan on April 2. The series will run for 26 episodes over the course of half a year (or two cours). Crunchyroll and Funimation are streaming the series as it airs.

Crunchyroll describes the story:

During the summer, Takuya Arima receives a package—from his missing father—detailing the existence of parallel universes. He investigates further and soon realizes that he's been given the key to cross-dimensional time travel. Now, Takuya is forced to use this newfound tech to unravel the mystery of his father's whereabouts and find out why those closest to him are keeping secrets.

Tetsuo Hirakawa (Grimoire of Zero) is directing the anime, and Mai Otsuka (This Art Club Has a Problem!, Shakugan no Shana) is designing the characters. Studio feel. is producing the animation, and GENCO is producing.

Director Hirakawa previously said that the anime will depict all the characters and all the routes from the original game. While the game unfolded from the first-person perspective of the protagonist Takuya, the anime will also depict the relationships of the girls around Takuya. Hirakawa vowed that the anime "will outdo the game in dirty jokes," that Mio "will be even more tsundere," and that Kanna "will be even more mysterious."

The companies first announced the project in December 2016.
