3 min read

Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash HeaderThe winter 2016 anime series Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash wrapped up in the same year with its single volume releases and now TOHO has scheduled a complete box set release for it. The set is scheduled for a February 23rd, 2019 debut where it’ll be priced at 22,800 yen and we now have TOHO bringing out a look at the packaging for the set and the cover artwork, all of which looks great and keeps in theme with the past singles releases. It’s a good price compared to the singles where the individual Blu-rays, all limited editions, were priced at 6,800 yen each. The new set will be done across four discs, so it’s reauthored compared to the original releases and looks to include the 2.5 OVA and a visual book.

Check out our review of the series.

The anime adaptation was produced by A-1 Pictures with Ryousuke Nakamura directing and Mieko Hosoi designing the characters. The cast includes Yoshimasa Hosoya as Haruhiro, Hiroyuki Yoshino as Ranta, Nobunaga Shimazaki as Manato, Fukushi Ochiai as Moguzou, Mikako Komatsu as Yume, Haruka Terui as Shihoru, Tomokazu Seki as Renji, Daisuke Namikawa as Kikkawa, Hiroki Yasumoto as Brittany and Mamiko Noto as Barbara.

The series comes from the novel series by Ao Jyumonji with illustrations by Eiri Shirai which began in 2013 and has six volumes out. A manga adaptation is currently being serialized as well from Mutsumi Okuhashi.

Plot concept: Why are we here? Why are we doing this? Before Haruhito had realized what happened, he was surrounded by darkness. Why was he here? Where was here? Even now, he still didn’t know. Those around him were the same as him, no one remembered anything other than their own names. And when they emerged from the darkness, the world that awaited them seemed like something out of a video game. In order to survive, Haruhito forms a party with the others, learns fighting skills, and as a soldier in the reserve force, takes his first steps into the world of Grimgal. What awaits him there, he doesn’t know… This the story of an adventure born from the ashes.
