Discotek Media previously made a very welcome pickup to get back into the marketplace with The Twelve Kingdoms. With the home video releases out last year and streaming through a couple of services, they’ve now got a new clip up for it through Retrocrush. This one clocks in at about six minutes and comes from the nineteenth episode where our young lord meets his guardian but it’s a complicated relationship that they have.
The distributor previously set a May 28th, 2019 release date for the complete series on Blu-ray where it’ll be priced at $89.95. It’ll have the 45-episodes in bilingual form with both Japanese and English language tracks. No extras are listed at the moment for the 990-minute set.
Media Blasters previously released the series on DVD and Blu-ray in bilingual form in North America.
