The fall 2020 anime adaptation of the light novel series Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World, also known as Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjō, Arui wa Sekai ga Hajimaru Seisen, is getting its home video releases handled by Kadokawa. The distributor has set a three-volume release that began on January 27th, 2021. With the second volume coming out in a couple of days, we now have a look at the packaging for this release as well. The DVDs are priced at 11,000 yen while the Blu-rays are at 13,000 yen. There are also limited edition Blu-ray sets coming in at 20,000 yen. I think the main inclusion in the limited edition is a set of sheets for your bed with new illustrations on them. Check the full schedule below.
The project was directed by Shin Oonuma and Mirai Minato based on the series composition by Kento Shimoyama. Kaori Sato worked on the character designs while serving as the chief animation director with production handled by Silver Link.

Plot Concept: A great war has raged for years between the scientifically advanced Empire and Nebulis, the realm of magical girls—until the youngest knight ever to receive the title of the Empire’s strongest meets the princess of the rival nation. Though they are sworn enemies, the knight is taken by her beauty and dignity, and the princess is moved by his strength and way of life. Will the fighting between them ever be allowed to end?
