The summer 2018 anime series How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord is getting its home video release handled by Avex Pictures and they set a short schedule for it with its previous release. The twelve-episode series is set for a three-volume run on Blu-ray only where they’re priced at 14,000 yen. The series began its release on September 28th, 2018. Recently, Avex pictures has put together a complete collection release that will arrive on February 24th, 2021 priced at 19,800 yen. The set looks to include a new bonus CD and what we saw with the previous releases and we now have the full packaging spread for it that looks great.

Check out our review of the series.

The show was directed by Yuta Murano based on the series composition by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu. Shizue Kaneko worked on the character design while Yuki Nishioka served as the chief animation director with Ajiado handling the animation production.

The Japanese cast includes Azumi Waki as Rem Galleu, Yu Serizawa as Shera L. Greenwood, Masaaki Mizunaka as Diablo, Yumi Hara as Alicia Crystella, Rumi Okubo as Sylvie, Emiri Katō as Edelgard, Atsumi Tanezaki as Klem, Sayaka Senbongi as Celestine Baudelaire, and Yūka Morishima as Mei.

The light novels began in 2014 from Yukiya Murasaki and have nine volumes out as of this writing. The first novel got a digital release from J-Novel Club last month and Seven Seas Entertainment has plans for the manga.

Plot Concept: In the MMORPG Cross Reverie, Takuma Sakamoto is so powerful that he is lauded as the “Demon Lord” by other players. One day, he is summoned to another world – but with the same appearance he had in the game! There, he meets two girls who both proclaim themselves to be his Summoner. They had performed an Enslavement Ritual to turn him into their Summon… but that’s when Takuma’s passive ability <> activated! Instead, it was the girls who had become enslaved! Though Takuma may have been the strongest Sorcerer there was, he had no idea how to talk with other people. That’s when he makes his choice: to act based on his persona from the game!

“Amazing? But of course… I am Diablo, the being known and feared as the Demon Lord!”

So begins a tale of adventure with an earth-shakingly powerful Demon Lord (or at least someone who acts like one) taking on another world!
