Fans have been hoping for some time that the first season of Darker Than Black would get the upgrade to Blu-ray that it needs, and now it looks like we’re on track for that in May. It also looks like it’s a bit of a special deal as it’s being limited to 5000 copies – not limited to any particular retailer – with a premium edition release that’s going to be limited. Priced at $99.99, it’s set to land on May 12th, 2015 and will include the twenty-five episode series in bilingual form in BD format only with:
- Specialty ”classified” packaging
- 48-page art book
- Display easel
- Episode Commentaries
- Cast Auditions
- Production Artwork
Right Stuf currently has it for $59.99. Preorders are key with this release and its limited run.
Plot concept: A new and deadly breed of covert agent walks the streets. Known as Contractors, these assassins and spies wield bizarre supernatural powers to carry out the dirty work of others. They thrive in the underworld, between rumor and reality, their loyalties always in question. One among these operatives is more mysterious than the rest – The masked killer BK201, the Black Reaper. His true identity and intentions remain unknown, but as his path weaves through the shadows and alleys of Tokyo, blood is spilled on both sides of the law. It\’\s a new age of confusion, and the rules of engagement have changed.
