Released a couple of weeks ago on February 17th, 2015, FUNimation has now brought out a couple more clips from the film A Certain Magical Index – The Movie – The Miracle of Endymion. What’s welcome with this new round of clips is that while we do get the English language version, which is a big part of the draw for fans, we also get the Japanese language version. Since the project was a film and not streamed, it’s a bit newer for a lot of fans of the TV series that haven’t seen this through other methods. With the clips also featuring some singing segments, it’s also fun to do a little comparison there as well.
The new feature is getting a DVD/BD combo pack release right out of the gate, priced at $34.95 and will have both of its language tracks in stereo using the Dolby TrueHD lossless codec. The feature clocks in at 90 minutes with eight minuets of extras for a Region A release. The extras included a feature length commentary track while the timed extras include the teaser and TV spots as well as the theatrical trailer and promotional videos and ‘Telepath” theatrical trailer.
Plot concept: Welcome to Academy City, a futuristic metropolis populated with super-powered students. As the brightest intellectual minds in the city work to complete the world’s first space elevator—a towering spire capable of taking citizens into the heavens—perpetually unlucky Kamijo and nun-in-training Index befriend a talented street musician named Arisa. When the beautiful singer lands a big break, her miraculous voice attracts unwanted attention, making the songstress a target for magicians and scholars alike. As the battle between sorcery and science blasts into space, Kamijo, Index, and their allies in Academy City are rocketed to a psychedelic stadium thousands of feet above Japan in a desperate attempt to keep Arisa—and the rest of the world—safe. Science fiction and fantasy collide in this action-packed feature film set in the shared universe of A Certain Magical Index and A Certain Scientific Railgun!
