Big news from ANN:

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2010-02-16/so-ra-no-wo-to-bd/dvd-no.4-no.7-to-add-unaired-episodes


The official website of the So-Ra-No-Wo-To anime series has announced on Tuesday that production on limited episodes for the Blu-ray/DVD releases has been green-lit. The unaired episodes will be included in the fourth and seventh Blu-ray/DVD volumes on June 23 and September 22, respectively. (The first volume, which ships on March 24, is pictured at right.)


I have mixed feelings.

I like the sound of that, because it means that back in Japan So ra no wo to is successful. Successful is good.

I don't like it because unless Crunchyroll can make it happen, I'll have to look into importing Blue-Rays...

On the specials. It seems that it'll be about a slice-of-life episode involving Filicia's old unit, the 1147th.

Quote from the magazine scan about it:


"I don't like this! But everyone's supposed the same! But everyone's supposed to be together!"


And hasty translation about the girls of the 1147th from the soranowoto blog:



Yukiko-san: Considerably skilled in judo, kendo, and tea ceremony. Ranked third in some kind of soldier waifu contest for two years. (TL note: "soldier" is written in kana such that it can be misread as "corpse." That's mean...)

Olga-san: Dark skinned, honorable young lady who cut her hair upon entering the army. Joined without her parents' knowledge. Likes to shower.

Anna-san: Admired by the Helvetia Crying Beauty Mole Association (not actually an association, but a fan club). She puts up with it, but it must be annoying.

Martina-san: Played a sport similar to tennis. Though she hurt her elbow and retired, Anna's classmates don't know anything about it.

Yeah, I don't foresee the DVD/BD-only episodes airing on CrunchyRoll.

However, if the show is licensed by Funimation or Sentai (or, who knows, NIS America) for R1, they'll be included there. And I already really want to buy Soranowoto on R1 DVD, so that just makes me look forward to it even more.

For what its worth, I'm seriously planning on buying the blu-rays for this series the minute they become available in the states. It's rare that I want to think about collecting a series this badly, but I think this is one of those times. And if one of the eps really is about Felicia's old squad, then oh yes, oh HELL YES!!!!

I don't know...There's a blatant opening in Episode 8 for an I'll-tell-you-later side story...
