The spring 2018 anime series Megalobox begat the spring 2021 second series and it’s getting its home video releases handled by Bandai Visual. The first season saw them done as three collections priced at 13,000 yen each but this second season is going for one big box set for the full thirteen-episode run. It’s set for a July 28th, 2021 debut where it’ll be priced at 35,000 yen. Check the schedule for known details below.

The series was directed by You Moriyama with scripts coming from Katsuhiko Manabe and Kensaku Kojima. It was animated at TMS Entertainment.

The Japanese cast includes Yoshimasa Hosoya as Junk Dog, Shiro Saito as Gansaku Nanbu, Nanako Mori as Yukiko Shirato, Michiyo Murase as Sachio, Hiroyuki Kinoshita as Fujimaki,  and Hiroyuki Yasumoto as Yuri.

Plot Concept: A desolate land stretches out from the city of poverty. A motorcycle speeds recklessly, blowing clouds of sand and dust. The rider is the protagonist of this story – he has neither a name nor a past.

All he has is his ring name, “Junk Dog” and a technique for rigging MEGALOBOX matches with his pal Gansaku Nanbu, which they use to support their hand-to-mouth lives. Although he has the skill, he isn’t dissatisfied enough to change his ways- but he’s not satisfied with his life either. JD is bored, resigned, and unfulfilled. He lives with frustration in a life of shadows beneath the lights of fame.

Meanwhile, under the bright sun is Yukiko Shirato, the daughter of Shirato Konzern —the reigning family of the wealthy class. Yukiko decides to advance her career by using MEGALOBOX to organize a large fighting event, MEGALONIA: the tournament to determine the champion of MEGALOBOX. She creates a scenario: MEGALOBOXER Yuri, under her control, will win and become the champion to further promote the Shirato brand gear and expand business. Yuri has been the reigning champion of MEGALOBOX for the past few years. Driven by self-discipline and his strong will to practice, he has the skills and presence of a true champion. The man himself is a shining exemplar of virtuosity.

This is a story of JD and his rival, Yuri. An encounter between shadow and light; a fast-paced story begins when their paths cross.
