The last we talked about this property was with the third season of A Certain Magical Index just before the pandemic when it wrapped up. Now, the folks at AniMoon Publishing out of Germany are getting ready to release the series on Blu-ray. They’ve got the first set in bilingual form setup with a March 17th, 2023 release. The set has six episodes and will be priced at €44.99 for the Blu-ray and €43.99 for the DVD.
After releasing a trailer for it recently, the latest clip for it has arrived as this one features Lisa Dzyadyk as Misha Kreuzhev, giving us a feel for how their character comes across in German. Check it out below.

Plot concept: Kamijo is a student in Academy City, where people use science to develop supernatural abilities. The guy’s got a lot of heart – luckily for a young nun named Index. She’s on the run from a sorcery society that covets the astonishing 103,000 volumes of magical knowledge stored in her memory. When Index stumbles into Kamijo’s life, she find a faithful friend and protector, and while Kamijo’s easily the weakest kid in Academy City, he’s got something else going for him: the Imagine Breaker, an unexplainable power stored in his right hand that negates the powers of others.
