Its package illustration is newly drawn by the eyecatch designer Tsuguyiki Kubo and its inner jacket is drawn by the character designer Haruhiko Mikimoto. The discs also contain newly recorded audio commentary, non-credit OP and ED movies, PVs, CMs, and music videos. In addition, a 100-page booklet

and a novel book "The Dreams Chris Sees," which was originally published as a bonus item for the April

1989 issue of Tokuma Shoten's Animage magazine, will be included in the set.
