Though the series ended its broadcast run and simulcast through Crunchyroll awhile ago, we’re nearing the end of the home video release for Mushibugyo and wanted to take a look at the covers. The eighth volume of the series is set for release in just about ten days, though there’s still one more to go, and they’ve done some neat things with them that could be used if the show ever gets licensed for home video release here.
The series is getting a nine volume release for its twenty-six episode run where each volume will have three episodes, though the first one will have two in order to make it all work. The series began its release back on July 26th, 2013 with the first volume of the Blu-ray running 5,040 yen while subsequent volumes will be 7,140 yen. For the DVD releases, it’ll be 3,990 yen and 6,090 yen for the same layout.
Plot concept: The protagonist, Tsukishima Jinbei, strives to be a warrior who wins every battle until the day he dies. Jinbei has left his homeland in the Tsugara Domain to join the Mushibugyo in the great city of Edo. His job in the Mushibugyo is to exterminate giant bugs that run rampant in the city. Jinbei fights with the Mushibugyo, an office of brave men who risk their lives to protect the peace in Edo and the smiles of the people! Honesty does pay off!
