Happinet Reveals First ‘Zatch Bell’ Blu-ray Anime Box Set Packaging

2 min read

Zatch Bell VisualWith plenty of DVDs released previously, the Zatch Bell anime series was previously announced to be making its way to Blu-ray. Happinet is handling the distribution for it and has set the first box set, which was originally scheduled for an April 4th, 2017 debut, now set for a July 4th, 2017 release. Since it’s now very close we now have our first look at some of the packaging design for it. With the set containing fifty episodes and priced at 57,000 yen, it’s understandable to give fans a bit of a heads-up to start setting money aside for it.

The set will come with some audio commentary material, two booklets and the clean versions of the opening and closing sequences.

The series comes from the manga Konjiki no Gash Bell!! from Makoto Raiku which ran for 37 volumes through December 2007. The anime started in 2003 and ran for 150 episodes while getting some decent distribution on TV over the years as well from Cartoon Network to YTV and to Toon Disney. Cinedigm through New Video Group has released the first 100 episodes dubbed on DVD in two complete season sets in North America.

Plot concept: Every thousand years, mamodo descend upon earth to conduct the ultimate battle. The winning mamodo becomes the king of the mamodo world. In order for the many mamodo to use their powerful spell books, they need a human partner. Kiyo is a brilliant but aloof 14-year old. Kiyo’s father, an archeologist, finds a mamodo child named Zatch unconscious in a forest. He sends the goodhearted Zatch to be his son’s mentor. It is up to Kiyo and Zatch to discover this together. The unsuspecting Zatch and Kiyo must defend themselves against the ambush of mamodo-king wannabees.
