In addition to all 26 episodes of the TV anime, the physical set includes a 16-page booklet with character artwork. On disc, you can look forward to checking out the show's 4K digital restoration and new English dub.
Twenty years ago, a terrible war fought with magnetic weapons caused the earth's axis to tilt, and earthquakes and tidal waves destroyed civilization. Conan is born into this new world, raised by his adopted grandfather on an isolated island. But his life is forever changed when a mysterious girl named Lana washes ashore, pursued by shadowy operatives who seek to use her in a new scheme to control what’s left of the world.
You can pre-order the set at RightStuf and other retailers.
