Volume 1 will be released on 2012/12/19. It will contain the first two episodes and retail for 6,930 yen/5,670 yen (BD/DVD). The first pressing will contain a 24 pg full color booklet, a Nozomi Ousaka newly drawn postcard, eyecatch postcards, and come in a digipak 3-sided case.
Included on the disc is an untelevised short DEPTH OF FIELD~ A Love and Hate Short, a Black Rumble Dakutibite (Black Action Report) footage, web next episode previews, textless OP/ED and the news flash teaser. It will also come with cast/staff audio commentary and Japanese subtitles.
Here's the cover art
for volume 1. Pony Canyon's Enumura also posted some pictures of the actual packaging on the blog, so I'll translate.
Here's the outside case. I think you can see how shiny it is. The unique background printing style we've used makes it glitter. Look closely and you'll see that the background is Rikka-themed with her Mauser and Schwarz ZX Prototype Mark II.
The case is printed via Mat PP processing, so it gives a nice silky feeling. With how thick this case is, you really get the impression it was well-made. Now let's look at what's inside...
The gate is sealed. Let's open it!
This magic patterned disc appears to be coming from Rikka's hand. By the way, we're preparing different patterns for the next volumes. The Dark Flame Designer Soka-san is looking over them as best she can!
We can also finally reveal the included extras! On the left is Nozomi Ousaka's newly drawn card board and in the middle/right is postcards from the eyecatches. Ousaka-san's Rikka is also so cute!
Continuing, I'll introduce you to part of the booklet. Production sketches, staff discussions, explanations on how the Supervisor was obsessed about fixing this and that, etc. This booklet is really filled! My own recommendation is the room of Chaotic Disturbance Rikka has. (laughs) At 24 full color pages, this booklet is well worth reading.
Since you've made it this far, let's introduce our bonus footage. First, the un-aired short movie, Depth of Field ~ A Play About Love and Hate

For some reason it's nice to see some mechs arrive!!!!!!!! We've only seen these images yet I feel they'll play a role in it. Where will it go from here?!
Continuing onwards, the Black Action Report is a documentary about the cast's extracurricular activities (?). In the first volume, the four girls of Black Raison d’etre visit Kyoto Animation.
They're closely packed around Supervisor Ishihara's seat. What the hell is he showing them? In this KyoAni Journalist Arc, the girls get shown around each section by Supervisor Ishihara.
