The recently formed anime and video game publisher Acttil have confirmed that their very first preorder campaign as a company is now underway. Their first ever announced project was for the international distribution of Studio TRIGGER’s film Little Witch Academia which is to be available as a Collector’s Edition beginning next month. This follows on from strong reception for the film which is available for free online, and a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for a sequel which saw the studio walk away with over $625,000.
The Collector’s Edition is set to include the 26 minute episode on blu-ray, with a Japanese dub and subtitles in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Chinese. The release is also set to include a 66 minute making-of video and a 112-page artbook containing storyboards, sketches, character art and other illustrations.
You can pre-order your copy of the episode for 6,000 yen (Approx 61.65 USD or 67.54 AUD) from HERE.
