The fall 2016 anime short series 3-Nen D-Gumi Glass no Kamen, which was produced by DLE, has its home video release set and as we’re just a few weeks away we’ve got a bit more about it. The set has a new thirty-second promotional spot out from DLE that plays up the weird humor of the show while giving us a good look at the design work as well. Happinet is distributing the show with a planned March 2nd, 2016 release with a DVD priced at 4,800 yen and a Blu-ray priced at 6,800 yen. The Blu-ray comes with a CD that has the ending theme in its different versions and some poem recital material. The Blu-ray has the full thirteen episode run, some of the travel video commentary material, a special edition of the ending, the home video release announcement, and a booklet. There’s about thirty minutes of extras all told.
The Japanese cast includes Kana Asumi as Maya Kitajima, Rumi Ookubo as Ayumi Himekawa, Atsuko Tanaka as Chigusa Tsukikage, Yuki Kaji as Yuu Sakurakouji and Daisuke Ono as Masumi Hayami.
Original Series Premise: Kitajima Maya, a 13-year-old girl with a talent for acting, was discovered by the reclusive actress Tsukikage. The story follows Maya’s growing up, intense training, overcoming challenges, and evolving into the foremost actress of her generation (she is about 20 so far). Maya’s greatest rival is Himekawa Ayumi, the beautiful daughter of a famous movie couple. They ultimately vied for the most sought-after role—the “Crimson Goddess.” An equally important subplot is Maya’s relationship with the handsome and ruthless entertainment mogul Hayami Masumi, who secretly became her number one fan, but misunderstandings and bad-timings have obstructed their romance.
