Megalo Box 2: Nomad stands as one of the best boxing anime we have had in quite a while. Even though there are dark clouds over Joe, the fighting genre is shining brighter than ever.
Ever since we were introduced to “Gearless” Joe in the Megalo Box anime, he had quite an impact.
With 2021 marking the 50th anniversary of the original Ashita no Joe manga, Megalo Box Season 2 gave us a spine-chilling tale of Joe’s dark turns. However, there is more in the store for the fans.
The Megalo Box official website recently announced that NOMAD Megalo Box 2 Blu-ray BOX (Special Limited Edition) will be available for purchase on all major Japanese shopping sites starting 28th July 2021.

The Blu-ray set will be available for purchase at the price tag of ¥ 38,500 or $ 350 (tax included). Additionally, Animate, Rakuten Books, and Amazon are all providing original illustrations as store privileges.
The special edition set will include a never-before-seen short animation titled “Hummingbird and Traveler. “ The animation will have two versions, one based on Joe and the other Yuri.

- A special booklet with artwork by You Moriyama.
- Storyboard and scenario of episode 1.
- Non-credit OP, ED.
- Teaser and main PV.

The story in Nomad follows an old grizzly Joe seven years after he won the supreme title in Megalo Box Season 1. Under the name “Nomad,” he fights at underground boxing matches to get by.
The Nomad season was a straight-up deviation from the story in season one. However, fans were excited to see the mature tone and new perception in which Director You Moriyama presented the Nomad.
The Blu-ray set will be an excellent addition to any Megalo Box fan who wants to experience the thrill of boxing anime again.
So, don’t miss out on this deal, as they are only limited edition and are bound to run out of stock pretty quick.
