While we’re only a few episodes into the season so far, Media Factory is getting their presentations set up when it comes to the home video plans for their shows. The latest comes from the 25 episode series Log Horizon where they’re debuting the first commercial for it. The show is getting an eight volume release on both DVD and Blu-ray with regular editions for both, though first press materials are obviously going to be there at times. The Blu-ray releases will be priced at 8190yen each while the DVDs are set for 7140yen each with a new volume monthly starting on January 29th, 2014.
Extras for the release in terms of on-disc pieces are always subject to change but so far they’re indicating that there will be opening and closing storyboards with the director, an audio commentary with the director and cast interviews for the first volume.
Plot concept: One day, while playing the online game Elder Tales, 30,000 players suddenly find themselves trapped in another world. There, eight-year veteran gamer Shiroe also gets left behind. The trapped players are still alive, but they remain in combat with the monsters. The players don’t understand what has happened to them, and they flee to Akiba, the largest city in Tokyo, where they are thrown into chaos. Once proud of his loner lifestyle, Shiroe forms a guild called Log Horizon with his old friend Naotsugu, female assassin Akatsuki and others. From the ruins of Akiba, the Shiroe who shuns human contact sets out with his friends to change the world.
