posted on by Andrew Osmond
The original 220-part series will be released in four Collector's editions and eight standard editions

Anime Limited has announced details of its upcoming Blu-ray release of the original 220-episode Naruto TV series.

The series will be released in both Collector's and standard editions. There will be four Collector's editions, each carrying eight discs. Set 1 will contain the first 55 episodes; Set 2 will contain episodes 56 to 110; Set 3 will contain episodes 111 to 165; and Set 4 will contain episodes 166 to 220. Each Collector's Edition set will also come with a rigid slipcase and a 32-page art booklet, with character artwork from the relevant story arcs.

There will also be an edition of the first set (pictured) sold through the AllTheAnime website, which will include a box that can contain all four of the eventual sets.

Regarding the Collector's editions, Anime Limited says, "You can expect one to land in retail every couple of months, with our Part 1 Collector's Edition set for a retail release date of September 2."

Standard editions of the series will also be released from September 2; the designs of the first two editions are pictured on the left. Each standard edition will contain four Blu-ray discs and the same on-disc content as the Collector's editions. Set 1 will carry episodes 1 to 27; Set 2 will carry episodes 28 to 55; Set 3 will carry episodes 56 to 82; Set 4 will carry episodes 83 to 110; Set 5 will carry episodes 111 to 137; Set 6 will carry episodes 138 to 165; Set 7 will carry episodes 166 to 192; and Set 8 will carry episodes 193 to 220.

Anime Limited says of the standard editions, "You should expect to see a new set drop on broadly a monthly basis."

The series will be presented in a 4:3 aspect ratio, and will have both English stereo and also Japanese stereo audio with English subtitles.

Anime Limited adds, "Our thoughts are already turning towards Naruto Shippūden, but it's fair to say we won't be sharing any news on that until we're closer to the end of the release schedule for the original series."

Anime Limited's announcement was posted on its blog on July 1, but it was unfortunately overlooked at that time; many apologies.
