The spring 2019 anime series Yu-No is getting its home video releases handled by NVC Universal Japan and they’re going a pretty good route for it. The series is scheduled for a trio of box sets that begin release on August 28th, 2019. Each set is priced at 21,000 yen each. Now, the official site has updated (via ANN) to reveal that the third set will get a new episode included with it – if the first set due out in August gets 1,000 preorders for it. That’s an incentive!

The series has Tetsuo Hirakawa directing it with Mai Otsuka handling the character designs. With Studio Feel on board to produce the animation, it’s set for a two-cour run. It was also confirmed that the cast will include the game cast with Yuu Hayashi as Takuya Arima, Kaori Nazuka as Ayumi Arima, Maaya Uchida as Kanna Hatano, Saori Oonishi as Mitsuki Ichijo, Rie Kugimiya as Mio Shimazu, Yu Kobayashi as Eriko Takeda, and Rena Maeda as Kaori Asakura.

The opening theme song is “Kono yo no hate de koi o utau shoujo” by Asaka while Konomi Suzuki is performing “Shinri no kagami, ken no you ni” as the ending theme song

Plot concept: Takuya Arima is a young student whose father, a historian who has conducted various researches, disappeared recently. During a summer vacation, Takuya receives a peculiar package from his missing father, along with a letter containing information about the existence of various parallel worlds. At first, Takuya doesn’t take it seriously, but soon he realizes that he possesses a device that allows him to travel to alternate dimensions. Is his father alive, after all? If so, where is he?
