    Iroha will have nine volumes total. The first eight will retail for 8190 yen (BD)/6510 yen (DVD) apiece with the final volume retailing for 6,615 yen (BD)/4935 yen (DVD). The publisher is Pony Canyon.

    Here is the release schedule according to Rakuten:
    Volume 1: 07/20/2011 Cover Art/Box 1 Preview art/Booklet Preview/Packaging article
    Volume 2: 08/17/2011 Cover art/Booklet Preview
    Volume 3: 09/21/2011 Cover art/Booklet Preview
    Volume 4: 10/19/2011 Cover art/Box 2 Preview art/Booklet Preview

    Volume 8: 02/15/2012 Cover art/Booklet Preview
    Volume 9: 03/21/2012 Cover Art/Notebook Box Preview art/Booklet Preview

    The show will have 3 episodes per disc for all but the final disc, which will have 2. The LE of the first volume will contain an artbox that holds 3 volumes, and volumes 4 and 7 will contain the other two. The LE of Volume 9 will contain a box to hold the booklets much like Kanon and Clannad

    Common bonus features for all BD releases are non-text openings and endings as well as staff and character commentary. A special digipack packagaing and a 64 page booklet in the Hanairo Notebook series will be included.

    The DVD version (and hypothetically RE BD) will only contain the video extras (textless OP/ED, PVs, etc).

    Just out curiosity, was that Vol.1 cover art link ever working before? I thought I remember seeing it before with the Mania thread.

      It was working when the release was first solicited on the official site. The timing coincided when the site was rapidly visited after the first episode and Pony Canyon had to host it on a backup server. As I copied the link from that site, when the site went back to its official domain, the backup site was shutdown. I did not inspect the link during the transition from Mania and I apologize. It is now fixed to link correctly. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

        Volume 1 Full Details

        The official site updated the listing with design images of the cover/packaging and first box. They also updated the details about the included extras.

        The first volume will contain episodes 1-3. The extras include the special cover image, the first non-text opening, and two types of audio commentary for the first episode. Track 1 will be character commentary by Ohana (Kanae Itou) and Tomoe (Mamiko Noto). Track 2 will be standard commentary by Itou, the director Masahiro Ando, producer Kenji Horikawa, and producer Takayuki Nagatani.

        The first pressing will have the special artbox linked above and a 64 page all color booklet entitled Hanairo Notebook 1st. The booklet will have the opening and ending rough cuts and original images as well as a 6 page draft from Jiroumaru entitled "The Bubble-smothered New Employee Training Session".

        Edit: This blog post uploaded this image of the 64 page booklet and some selected pages. It looks to have some character designs/notes as well.
