The first volume of the anime, Super Sonico, have been in pre-order status since yesterday with the release of the anime due to be in March 19 this year. However stock of the limited edition version of the anime have completely dried up and sold out!
This is due to the addition of an amazing bonus in the form of an original figma Super Sonico swimsuit version. In fact, so many otaku went nuts with the pre-order that it pushed it straight into the 2nd spot on Japan Amazon’s anime list. Second only to the home release of Madoka Magica: Rebellion. It’s an awesome pack which also comes with Original character designer Santa Tsuji original illustration bromide, Character designer Masafumi Tamura original illustration digipack, Special booklet and a Character designer Masafumi Tamura original digipack illustration bromide.
