One of my favorite manga and anime series from the 90’s is getting a new lease on life as Kodomo no Omocha is getting some new home video releases. The series is being produced as two SDBD collections with the Elementary School arc due out on July 22nd, 2020 while the Middle School arc will arrive on September 30th, 2020. Both sets are priced at 26,000 yen each and feature 51-episodes in high-quality standard-definition encoding.
The packaging for the first set was released as well.
The manga series got its North American release from TOKYOPOP years ago and the first half of the anime series received a DVD release from FUNimation.
Property concept: Sana Kurata, a child actress, faces many problems in her classroom, including a major one – her bullying classmate, Akito Hayama. Sana’s outgoing and friendly nature leads her to work towards correcting all of the problems around her. Her ‘meddling’ irritates Hayama but at the same time captivates him, just as Hayama’s gloomy nature irritates Sana and compels her to change him. As these two opposites attract each other, they face many hardships that bring them closer to a mutual understanding.
