Yosuga no Sora BD-DVD Episode Ordering

Yosuga no Sora

Anime News Network reports:

The official website for the anime Yosuga no Sora confirmed this week that the Blu-ray release will have a different episode order from the DVD release, but it also revealed that some episodes will be included on more than one Blu-ray volume.

The first Blu-ray volume will contain the first four broadcasted episodes. However, it will have two versions of episode 2 — the “BGM (background music) Kazuha Migiwa Ver.” and the “O.A (On Air) Ver.”

The second Blu-ray volume will contain the first, second, fifth, and sixth broadcasted episodes. However, it will have two versions of episode 2 — the “BGM Akira Amatsume Ver.” and the “O.A Ver.”

The third Blu-ray volume will contain the first broadcasted episode and “three other episodes.” The limited and standard editions of the fourth Blu-ray volume will each contain the first broadcasted episode and four other episodes.

The four DVD volumes will each contain three episodes in broadcast order, for a total of 12 episodes.

So the information from Animesuki forums was true after all.

Well, I certainly wouldn’t mind it being done this way. If say I only liked Sora’s arc, I could just grab the last BD volume and not worry about having missing episodes. Besides, it’s just stupid to sell a Blu-Ray containing only two episodes *coughAmagamicough*

    Yeah, this is pretty clever marketing. This should get buyers who don’t have the motivation to buy an entire series.

    For best marketing, get an exclusive picture of the “girl of the arc” on the cover!

    I certainly approve of this marketing strategy. Considering I only really liked Akira’s route in the original story in the first place, I’ll only have to buy her episodes.

    Really – I wish more anime like this went on DVD the same way – I’d be more motivated to buy Amagami in that case.

    With this approach, they’re likely to sell less box-sets, but more single volumes. Hard to tell how it’s going to influence total sales, but unless they bump up the volumes’ prices, it will benefit all who’s interested in buying their discs.
