Before their full slate goes out, Funimation has announced that The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya will be getting an Ultimate Collector’s Edition bluray set on September 13.
- This features not only the original two season series, but the chibi spinoffs The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya + Nyoron! Churuya-san AND the new Nagato-centric alternate universe spinoff, The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan – all in a premium set with a collector’s chipboard box plus a filler box with art cards!
- The filler box happens to be about the same size as a Blu-ray case and can be removed to fit something else…
I’m to assume the something else the filler box is in place of is The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya movie, which Funimation has not yet announced as licensed.
Everything will also be available separately on the same day, though the only way to get the Haruhi-chan and Churuya-san shorts on bluray will be through the collector’s edition.
