It’s just been recently announced that seasons 1 and 2 of Kimi ni Todoke will be released on blu-ray in Japan. (Source)
I’m not sure how I really feel about this recent announcement having just completed importing all the R2J DVDs for the 2nd season (plus all the DVDs for the first season as well) but I guess I might end up double dipping for this title maybe shortly after it is released. More details after the cut.
There will be 3 blu-ray boxes released for the series. One will contain the complete series (seasons 1 & 2) while the other two will be the blu-ray boxset for both seasons sold seperately. All 3 will be released on the 21st of September 2011. No word yet on whether it’ll be an upscale or not but with the series having been aired in HD in Japan (I think), there shouldn’t really be any reason that the HD masters won’t be used for the blu-ray boxsets.
