This Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release comes packed in rigid case. Inside that you’ll find an Amaray case to hold the Blu-ray disc, and in addition to that an 80-page booklet containing lots of content originally included in the Japanese releases, but provided here in English for the first time anywhere in the world!
The booklet will include character and location art and information, storyboards for the beloved Opening and Closing title sequences of the series, and lots of other fun (and occasionally explosive) features. Here’s a visual of what the various elements of the set will look like.
This season one Blu-ray of Konosuba is 11 episodes in total; the 10 episodes originally broadcast along with the an additional bonus OVA episode. All of these episodes are available on this disc, and have viewing options in both English and original Japanese with English subtitles. On-disc extras on the Blu-ray consist of: Textless versions of the Opening and Closing title sequences, Promotional videos and a “Thanks For Watching” message.
Oh, and for those of you wondering (or quite rightly shouting “But where’s Megumin?!”, here’s what both sides of the rigid case will look like:

Full title: KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!
Synopsis: Kazuma Sato decides that today is the day to get out of the house for a bit. Since he dies, pointlessly, it’s clearly a bad choice.
The goddess who greets him in the afterlife, however, offers him a chance to be reborn in a world not unlike that of a video game, and as a bonus she’ll even throw in a cool item or power! Can’t possibly be a bad choice, right? Except he arrives with no money at all, dead average skills, and his “bonus” isn’t useful at all–since he picked the goddess, Aqua, herself. How are the two of them supposed to defeat the evil Devil King and live happily ever after? Well, for them, it probably starts with day labouring rather than adventuring.
And it’s only going to get more disappointing from there.
Director: Takaomi Kanasaki (Princess Connect! Re:Dive, KonoSuba season 2 & film, School Rumble)
Studio: Studio Deen (Urusei Yatsura, Log Horizon, Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto)
Broadcast year: 2016
