More Mighty Japan
A few weeks ago, we told you about The Mighty Boosh coming to dvd in Japan, with the announcement of series 1 across two volumes on April 21st, with series 2 to follow on May 26th.
Amazon Japan has now uploaded images of the series 2 covers, and we can confirm that the series is indeed split across both volumes, seemingly with no extras to speak of. Sadly, there’s no Japanese dub – the episodes remain in English audio, with subtitles. There is also currently no news of a release date for series 3, but we’ll keep you posted if that changes.
Thanks to Boosh fan and Japanese culture expert “Brainshortcake”, we’ve learnt that the first two series are currently being aired on satellite channel Fuji TV in Japan, and has been on air since January. At present, the episodes are being shown Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 6:30pm! Each series has a page on Fuji’s website – click here to see the first series, and here to see the second.
Collectors worldwide, and Japanese fans desperate for their digitised Boosh fix, can pre-order the discs via Amazon.jp now.
