When many people think of anime and people involved there are always some names that stick out and come to forefront first of all, one of those being Shinichiro Watanabe. The legendary director of Cowboy Bebop has seen his career take him on a unique path bringing us shows like Space Dandy and Kids on the Slope. But another series of his which is always held in the highest regards to us here at Anime Limited is Terror In Resonance.
Today we’re excited to announce a new product addition to our catalogue in the form of Collector’s Edition Blu-ray set of the series that will be available to add to your collection from 18th May!

The thinking behind this release is very much, yes we have released the series before, including what was one our very first Ultimate Edition edition releases way back in 2016 – a set (which has been out-of-print for some time now and is one) we’re still incredibly proud of to this day.
But it’s always been in the back of our brain that if we ever got the opportunity to be able to bring out some kind of new Collector’s Edition set, it’s definitely something we’d look into. Something akin to what we did recently with the film A Silent Voice (SEE HERE).
Well a lot of time has passed and we’re now delighted to unveil our new Terror in Resonance Collector’s Edition Blu-ray set! This release is very much intended to be for people who never had the chance to purchase and/or own the Ultimate Edition set, but wanted something a little bit more than just a standard Blu-ray release.
With that in mind, this set will come packed in a rigid case, and inside that you’ll find an amaray case holding the two Blu-ray discs. (Also worth noting there is an alternate sleeve design on the amaray too.) Additionally you’ll also get a 36-page booklet that contains the storyboard for the entire first episode!
On the discs themselves you get the entire 11 episode series with both English and original Japanese with English subtitles viewing options. Additionally on the discs there’s an in depth conversation with the cast (duration approx 21 minutes), Textless Opening and Closing Title Sequences and even an audio commentary for finale eleventh episode too!
For those of you interested, here’s a visual of what both sides of the rigid case will look like –
