Announced earlier this month, Frontier Works is now doing some pretty good promotion for their upcoming release of the Midoriyama Koukou Koushien-hen anime series. Originally released as ten OVA episodes in 1989 and 1990, Frontier Works is bringing the baseball series out on Blu-ray in Japan for the first time. The new 3 1/2 minute promo highlights a lot of the cast and shows off the style of animation pretty well and reminding us old fogies of the kind of material we used to have and love. The set will have a 415 minute run time and will bring out the series in full, though not the movie. The release will be done with one disc and will include an audio commentary by the staff while other bonuses and extras are being planned. It’ll be priced at 13,500 yen with a November 11th, 2015 release date.
The series was directed by Masashi Ikeda with overall composition by Atsuo Kuwasawa, the original creator of the work. The series was animated by Animaruya.
Plot concept: The story of students of a baseball team from Midoriyama High School, who will participate in the 66th National Championship Tournament of Senior High School Baseball in Japan.
