The Japanese Scrapped Princess Blu-ray box set has now arrived for fans in Japan as it had a December 26th, 2014 release date and now Kadokawa has let loose with a new TV spot to remind fans about it so they can go grab a copy. The set is priced at 30,240 yen for the complete twenty-four episode run. The release unfortunately does not include any of the English language materials, so there’s no English subtitles or dub available. Though hopefully the availability of this set will cause it to be picked up for North American release later. With the issues the original DVDs had here, even an upconvert would likely look a whole lot better. This release has a few extras to it with the TV spot and commercial collection, but that’s all that’s being listed at this point in time.
The series originally aired in 2003 in Japan as animated by Studio Bones with soichi Masui directing based on scripts by Reiko Yoshida. The series was picked up by Bandai Entertainment and got a brief TV run through ImaginAsian TV. Bandai Entertainment last released the series in an Anime Legends collection back in 2007, though you can still find copies floating out there in various retail channels.
Plot concept: Pacifica Cassul is a girl with a destiny.

But two powerful people have sworn to protect her- her brother Shannon, whose swordsmanship is impeccable, and her sister Raquel, who is able to wield devastating magic when the mood strikes her. But traveling without attracting attention proves to be very difficult for the outspoken Pacifica, and they soon find themselves in trouble from various sources. Traitorous friends, assassins, and even an operative from Special Forces all stand in their way.
