Toei Animation Announces “Majin Boo” Home Video Releases
Published by 21 April 2014, 12:46 AM EDT

With only three episodes of the Majin Boo arc of Dragon Ball Kai broadcast to date, Toei Animation has announced that pre-orders for the first three box sets of this story arc are now available in their Online Shop. Happinet, the company producing the box sets, has followed suite and added listings for these releases to their website as well.

Unlike the previous home video releases for Dragon Ball Kai (Saiyan to Cell arcs), it appears that Toei has opted to forgo any individual DVD releases, as the box sets will now be available in both Blu-ray and DVD formats. The first box set is scheduled to be released on 02 September 2014 and will contain non-credit versions of the new opening and ending themes. Both formats will come packaged with an exclusive booklet, brand new box art, and contain 12 episodes per box set. The Blu-ray box sets are set at a ¥15,200 (~$148.00) retail price point, while the DVD sets will come in a little cheaper at ¥11,200 (~$110.00).

Also departing from the previous releases, with the Blu-rays being in a 4:3 fullscreen aspect ratio and DVDs in a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio, both the Blu-ray and DVD box sets for the Majin Boo arc are listed in widescreen formats only. As of right now, it appears that a fullscreen version will not available, and in all likelihood was never produced to begin with. We’ll be sure to keep you posted if this detail happens to change.
