Viz Media brought the anime series Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet onto home video previously along with distribution through a few streaming platforms over the years. Previously, the series is getting some renewed attention in Japan where a complete Blu-ray box set has been scheduled. Originally set for a February 25th, 2021 debut, it was pushed back to March 26th, 2021 where it’ll be priced at 38,00 yen and will have the 13 episode run, the OVA, and the two-part Haruka piece. Extras include the shorts, the retrospective, the clean opening and closing, promos, commercials, and theatrical previews for on-disc extras.
With the set out, we previously had just a look at the cover and the box sides. But now, a fuller picture has been released that highlights all sides of the goodness of this set.
The box set itself will come with a new visual book, a logbook, and the original soundtrack.
