NBC Universal Japan brought out the first box set for The Fruit of Grisaia back on May 10th, 2017 priced at 24,000 yen. They’re now rolling out a priced-down edition of it with a planned July 31st, 2019 debut and we now have a look at the packaging for it. The new set shaves off about 90,000 yen as it comes down to 15,000 yen for the set. It’ll be a three-disc set with the full thirteen-episode run and it comes with a sleeve case and a booklet. The set will include the six shorts as extras.
The release looks to be done across three Blu-ray discs so it’s a new encoding that will have the original Japanese language track and no subtitles listed. The set will come with a booklet and a poster.
The twelve episode series builds on The Fruit of Grisaia and the standalone special The Labyrinth of Grisaia. All the properties have been picked up by Sentai Filmworks for release in North America. Check out our review of them.
Plot Concept: The story picks up immediately after the events of Grisaia no Meikyuu, with Kazami Yuuji having been detained for suspected involvement with an international terrorist organization, lead by Heath Oslo, that has managed to enter Japan’s borders with a devastating new weapon of mass destruction in hand. Meanwhile, at Mihama Academy, the remaining students find themselves with time running out – due to financial issues, the school is set to close within the month. Over the past year, though, the girls of Mihama have finally begun to find their own legs, thanks to Yuuji’s involvement – are they really just going to bury their heads in the sand and let the world change around them? And are they really willing to let the man who changed their lives slip away without so much as trying to win him back? As the end of their time at Mihama Academy approaches, Amane, Makina, Sachi, Yumiko, and Michiru find themselves arriving at a single conclusion.
How much a group of students can do in the face of countries and organizations far bigger than any individual could hope to be remains to be seen. In the first place, Yuuji’s position is far more complicated than any of them could have imagined, as he finds himself embroiled in an elaborate game of super-political chess revolving around both himself and an inconceivable new system slumbering in the depths of CIRS – a system that Yuuji may have more of a connection to than he thinks. One thing is for certain, though – the girls of Mihama are no longer willing to let the world steal things away from them without at least a bit of resistance first. And with help from a mysterious individual known only as Thanatos, they may just achieve their goal…
