The spring 2018 anime series Comic Girls is having its home video releases handled by Sony Pictures Japan and they’ve set a traditional release for it. The twelve-episode series originally received a six-volume release that began on June 27th, 2018. The DVDs were priced at 6,000 yen and the Blu-rays at 7,000 yen. Recently, a complete collection is being solicited for the first time that will land on April 1st, 2021 priced at 22,000 yen. Which is a pretty good savings over the singles. It looks like it’s not skimping either as it’ll include the previous CDs and the extras.

With that set and getting closer, Sony has now revealed the main cover artwork in full, as well as the full packaging, spread to see what the slipcover, discs, and more looks like.

Yoshinobu Tokumoto directed it based on the series composition by Natsuko Takahashi. Keiko Saitou worked on the character designs and Nexus produced the animation.

The Japanese cast includes Hikaru Akao as Kauruko Moeta, Kaede Hondo as Koyume Koizuka, Saori Oonishi as Ruki Irokawa, Rie Takahashi as Tsubasa Katsuki, Aya Endo as Ririka Hanazono, Minami Tsuda as Mayu Amisawa, Ayaka Nanase as Miharu Nijino, and Reina Ueda as Suzu Fūra.

The work comes from Kaori Hanzawa that began back in 2014 and has three volumes out.

Plot Concept: The story centers on the 15-year-old high school student and manga creator Kaoruko Moeta, who uses the pen name Chaos. After ranking at the bottom of a reader survey, Kaoruko’s editor recommends that she enter an all-female dormitory for manga creators. Kaoruko’s roommates are shōjo manga creator Koyume Koizuka, teen romance manga creator Ruki Irokawa, and shōnen manga creator Tsubasa Katsuki. The girls support each other as they work to become better manga creators.
