A once forgotten anime, The Mystic Archives of Dantalian is being released on home video later this month by FUNimation.
The Mystic Archives of Dantalian is an anime from the studio of Gainax and was originally a light novel series written by Gakuto Mikumo and illustrated by G-Yuusuke. This Complete Series Collection includes all 12 episodes on the anime in the original Japanese audio with English subtitles. FUNimation is selling the set through their online store for $29.99 which is cheaper than the suggested retail price of $39.98.
Hugh Anthony Disward is the main character of this anime’s tale. His grandfather passed away leaving Hugh with a beautiful, yet massive estate. Within the multiple rooms Hugh discovers a beautiful girl named Dalian who just happens to be embodying a special archive. Hugh’s grandfather’s will specifically states that he must care for a being named Dalian. Poor Hugh believes this to be a pet until Dalian teaches him not to assume anything. She teaches Hugh to learn how to use his power to stop the destruction of monsters that are coming from magical literature. Phantom Books have a tendency to be used by those intending ill will which prompts Hugh and Dalian to stop them.
The Mystic Archives of Dantalian Complete Series Collection is available for pre-order now and will be officially released on Valentines Day February 14, 2017.
