Preview: Darwin’s Game (Complete Series Bluray)

Aniplex of America will be releasing the complete series of Darwin’s Game on Bluray on March 16th 2021. The set will contain all eleven episodes of the thrilling series in both English and Japanese audio, along with web previews, and textless opening and ending on three Blu-ray discs. Featuring an electrifying box art illustration by character designer Kazuya Nakanishi, the complete Blu-ray set includes a special booklet with character information.

Adapted from the original manga series by FLIPFLOPs, which was serialized in Bessatsu Shonen Champion by AKITASHOTEN, the animated series premiered in January 2020 and was produced by studio Nexus (COMIC GIRLS, GRANBELM) and directed by Yoshinobu Tokumoto, who served as episode director for many notable shows including BAKEMONOGATARI and SAEKANO: HOW TO RAISE A BORING GIRLFRIEND. The series features music by Kenichiro Suehiro (CELLS AT WORK!, GOBLIN SLAYER) with its opening theme, “CHAIN,” by ASCA (SWORD ART ONLINE ALICIZATION, FATE/APOCRYPHA) and ending theme, “Alive,” by Mashiro Ayano (FATE/STAY NIGHT [UNLIMITED BLADE WORKS], RECORD OF GRANCREST WAR).

The heart pounding series stars Yusuke Kobayashi (FIRE FORCE, RE:ZERO -STARTING LIFE IN ANOTHER WORLD-) and Stephen Fu (GOLDEN KAMUY, HOW HEAVY ARE THE DUMBBELLS YOU LIFT?) as Kaname Sudo, a 17-year old high schooler who becomes an unwilling participant in a life-or-death battle after receiving a mysterious email inviting him to download an app called “Darwin’s Game.” As he fights to survive, he encounters Shuka Karino, a top-ranking player known as “The Undefeated Queen,” played by Reina Ueda (LORD EL-MELLOI II’S CASE FILES {RAIL ZEPPELIN} GRACE NOTE, DEMON SLAYER: KIMETSU NO YAIBA) and Alexis Tipton (KAGUYA-SAMA: LOVE IS WAR?, A CERTAIN MAGICAL INDEX).

The DARWIN’S GAME Complete Blu-ray Set is now accepting pre-orders at online retailer RightStuf Anime.
