Tokuma Japan Communications is handling the home video release distribution for the spring 2015 anime series Re-Kan! and after revealing some of the plans back in April, they’re now showing off the covers. The series is slotted for thirteen episodes and it’s getting a five volume release, starting with a volume zero. That release lands on June 17th, 2015 with the Blu-ray’s priced at 6,800 yen while the DVDs are priced at 5,800 yen.
The first disc comes with the clean opening and closing as well as two episode commentaries. The second disc has the promotional videos and the commentaries. The third disc has a commercial collection and commentaries while the remaining volumes have only the commentaries.
With this series, the Japanese cast is similar to the drama CD cast, which often happens. Ibuki Kido is taking on the role of Hibiki Amami, which was played by Aya Endo on the drama CDs. The rest of the cast is new as well with Miku Itou as Narumi Inoue, Erii Yamazaki as Ogawa, Riho Iida as Uehara and M・A・O as Esumi. Additional casting came recently with Yoshihisa Kawahara as Daihen-zamurai, Mikako Izawa as Hanako-san, Kujira as Ero-neko, Eriko Matsui as Merry-san, Aya Uchida as Kogal Spirit and Futaba Kino as Faceless Spirit.
Announced back in August as getting the green light, the property is a four panel manga by Hinako Seta that began as a one-shot back in 2009 before going into a full series in 2010, which in turn has spawned five compilations so far. The anime adaptation is scheduled for a spring 2015 debut. It’ll be directed by Masashi Kudo based on scripts by Takashi Aoshima with character designs done by Aoi Yamamoto at Pierrot Plus.
Plot concept: Amami Hibiki is a girl who can see ghosts and other supernatural phenomena in her surroundings. The stories follow her daily life with both her friends and the otherworldly.
