Following an initial announcement from back in mid-August, Discotek Media has finally given a release date for its HD Blu-ray release of the Kimagure Orange Road series. This collection will include all 48 episodes of the TV series spread across 5 Blu-ray discs. It will include the original Japanese dub alongside English subtitles. A brief description of the series (as provided by Discotek) can be found below:
It can be hard moving to a new school, and fifteen-year-old Kyosuke has it harder than most. He’s fallen head over heels for his classmate Madoka, a girl who won’t even give him the time of day, and unintentionally ended up dating her best friend, Hikaru, instead. Worst of all, Kyosuke and his family have amazing supernatural powers, but he has to keep them hidden from the rest of the world! How is Kyosuke ever going to balance the affections (or lack thereof) of two girls, schoolwork, and his secret abilities all at the same time?
The collection will release on March 26, 2019 and is currently up for pre-order on Right Stuf’s website. The normal retail price is set at $99.95, but it is currently marked down to just $64.97. If you like the style of 80s Studio Pierrot animation and quirky romantic-comedies, be sure to give this one a look. If you’d like to know more about the series, check out the Anime of the Past piece that we posted about it back in 2013. I’m personally really psyched for this collection, so be sure to leave a comment below if you decide to snag a copy as well.
