Aniplex of America to Release SERVANT×SERVICE in a Complete DVD Set
Aniplex of America announced at their industry panel at Anime Boston about their plans to release their laugh-out-loud office comedy anime series, SERVANT × SERVICE (サーバント×サービス, Saabanto x Saabisu, 2013), in a Complete DVD Set on May 27th 2014.
If you thought a job at a government ward office would be dull then you’ve never met Lucy Yamagami and her more than eccentric co-workers from SERVANT × SERVICE! Originally created by manga artist, Karino Takatsu (Wagnaria!!), and produced by the highly acclaimed studio, A-1 Pictures (SWORD ART ONLINE, OREIMO 2, BLUE EXORCIST), SERVANT × SERVICE will definitely help to pep up a slow day at the daily grind.
Lucy (abbrev.) Yamagami is a newly-hired civil servant who has been assigned to work in a certain government ward office in a certain city in Hokkaido Prefecture. Not only does Lucy have so many things to learn at her new job, she needs to do all of that in the company of her colleagues who are all more than a little eccentric. If you thought a job as a government employee was dull then you better think again! SERVANT × SERVICE is a workplace comedy about how Lucy and her colleagues, actively and covertly (?!) serve their community every day!
The Complete DVD Set for SERVANT × SERVICE will be available for pre-order through Rightstuf.com and Aniplex’s official retailers starting on Monday March 24th 2014. The set will feature the entire series on 3 DVDs with the original Japanese audio and English subtitles. The set will also feature bonuses any fan of SERVANT × SERVICE will enjoy including both the textless opening and ending sequences, an o-sleeve featuring the key visual art, a 2-sided reversible cover, and a 24-page booklet including original four-frame manga strips by the author, Karino Takatsu, called the Special Public Documents.
The SERVANT × SERVICE Complete DVD Set will be distributed in limited quantities and will be sold only while supplies last.
