The summer 2019 anime series Astra Lost in Space may be coming out two years after the manga has finished but here we are with Media Factory handling the release. The distributor has set a box set approach with two sets scheduled beginning on October 25th, 2019. With that coming up in just a bit under a month, Kadokawa has now rolled out the main cover and full packaging spread for the set. The DVD sets are priced at 16,000 yen each and the Blu-ray sets priced at 18,000 yen each. Check out the details we know below.

The anime adaptation had set Masaomi Ando to direct based on the scripts by Norimitsu Kaiho. Keiko Kurosawa worked on the character designs with studio Lerche handling the animation production.

The Japanese cast includes Yoshimasa Hosoya as Kanata Hoshijima, Inori Minase as Aries Spring, Shunsuke Takeuchi as Zack Walker, Tomoyo Kurosawa as Quitterie Raffaëlli, Hina Kino as Funicia Raffaëlli, Risae Matsuda as Luca Esposito, Kouki Uchiyama as Ulgar Zweig, Saori Hayami as Yun-Hua Lu, and Nobunaga Shimazaki as Charce Lacroix.

Based on the work by Sket Dance creator Kenta Shinohara, the manga ran in the Shonen Jump+ app and it saw a print release in North America in English through Viz Media. It was also a bit of an experimental series as it had a voice drama that ran alongside the manga. The series began in 2016 and wrapped up in late 2017 with five volumes total.
