Back in 1998, Saber Marionette team Tsukasa Kotobuki and Satoru Akahori imagined Tokyo in the year 2010, where 12-year-old girl Hibari Hanakoganei yearns for a “Pata-Pi” virtual pet for 26-episode TV anime Cyber Team in Akihabara. This moved ahead a bit in 1999 movie Cyber Team in Akihabara: Summer Vacation of 2011. For a bit of nostalgic future, Japan is getting ready to revisit this series in a new Blu-ray set coming January 25th.
This 5-disc set with 48-page booklet, digipak, and external case sells for 35,000yen plus tax. Ryōka Shima, Kozue Yoshizumi and Yū Asakawa reunite February 5th for an autograph session in Akihabara.
Leading into the holidays, cover art was previewed along with a new promo.
