Aniplex of America Announce Plans to Release The Irregular at Magic High School on Blu-ray



Aniplex of America have today announced during their industry panel at Anime Boston that they plan to release the anime series The Irregular At Magic High School across three blu-ray volumes beginning June 30th 2015. The first collection will be entitled the “Enrollment Arc”, and will be followed by the “Nine Schools Competition Arc” in September 2015 and the “Yokohama Disturbance Arc” in December 2015.

Based on the science-fiction fantasy web novel written by Tsutomu Sato, The Irregular at Magic High School’s anime adaptation has been produced by the animation studio MADHOUSE, and concluded airing after 26 episodes in the latter half of 2014.

Set 1 will only be available as a standard edition, and will include the first seven episodes which make up the Enrollment Arc. The episodes will feature the episodes with only the original Japanese dub and English subtitles, with no confirmed plans for an English dubbed release. The set will also include a small set of on-disc goodies: textless opening sequence, 3x “Get to Know Magic Studies” short videos, trailers and commercials. The set will also include a booklet and collectible pin-ups, along with packaging which features illustrations by character designer Kana Ishida.

Priced at $89.98 SRP, pre-orders will begin opening in stores shortly. Do note that all three volumes will only be available for sale in the US and Canada, and those in other countries will want to turn to their local anime publishers for details on a local launch.

The Irregular at Magic High School – Synopsis

Magic–A century has passed since this concept has been recognized as a formal technology instead of the product of the occult or mere folklore. The season is spring and it is time for a brand new school year. 

At the National Magic University First Affiliate High School, A.K.A Magic High School, students are divided into two distinct groups according to their academic performances. The “Bloom,” who demonstrate the highest grades and are enrolled in the “First Course,” and the “Weed,” who have a poor academic record and are enrolled in the “Second Course.”

This spring, a very peculiar brother and sister enroll as new students. The brother is an under achiever with some deficiencies and enrolls as a “Weed,” while his younger sister is an honor student, who enrolls as a “Bloom.” The brother, with a somewhat philosophical disposition , and the younger sister who holds feelings a little stronger than sibling love for him… Ever since these two have entered through the gates of this prestigious school, the calm campus was beginning to change…
