One of the uncanny mystery stories we had this season was Odd Taxi with its walrus taxi driver, Odokawa.
Though the series has reached its Season 1 finale with all the strings of violence, trauma, and thrill finally resolved, fans want something to keep with themselves forever. But, even though Odd Taxi was quite outstanding, the production house didn’t plan on a Blu-Ray release!
However, some great news has come for dedicated fans.
Preorders for Odd Taxi blu Ray have been announced by the production team for dedicated fans. Additionally, reaching a higher tier of the preorders will unlock various rewards bundled with the Blu Ray set.
Blu-ray Box project “ODDTAXI” started.
Planning for the release of BDBOX will start!
When more than 300 sets of applications are collected, the release will be decided, and the specifications will be luxurious according to the number of applications.
Thank you for your support! !!

The earlier decision not to produce a Blu-Ray edition of the anime was due to the sinking market for home videos over the years. However, with fan support for the anime, the production went ahead with a preorder campaign.

|1||300||BD-BOX plus “Odd Taxi” visual comic|
|2||400||Staff art book by director Mugi Kinoshita and character design Hiromi Nakayama|

|6||1500||Character song EP|
|7||2000||Drinking eraser (???)|
|8||3000||Odokawa “Kawai” Figurine|
*Currently, the campaign is on tier 3.
With Tier 3 already secured, the Blu-Ray release is firmly settled. The cost of the edition will be approximately 27,500 yen. With so many rewards to be unlocked, this could be one of the most precious collectibles for the series fan.
The Blu-ray is turning out to be one of the most collectible merchandise in the Odd taxi lineup. So get one while you can!
About Odd Taxi
Odd Taxi is an original Japanese anime series produced by OLM, Inc. and P.I.C.S.. The series aired in Japan on April 6, 2021.
Odokawa is a taxi driver who lives an ordinary life and as a slightly eccentric stranger who has no relatives nor any relations with other people, Odokawa’s hobby is listening to Rakugo on the radio before going to bed.
Although, he does have a conversion with his customers – Kabasawa, a college student who wants a buzz, Shirakawa, a nurse who’s hiding something, comedian group Homo Sapiens, who isn’t selling well, and the city hoodlum Dobu.
The conversations with these people, which should not have meant much, lead to a girl who disappeared.
