009 Re:Cyborg – English Cast Announcement & Pre-order!

_入稿0718_OLThe wait is over, sci-fi anime fans— the new sci-fi action thriller anime 009 Re:Cyborg is now available for preorder— and getting an English dub! Plus, we’re announcing the release specs AND the cast announcement!

 

What’s 009 Re:Cyborg? Well, if you loved the classic cerebral sci-fi action anime like Ghost in the Shell or Akira from “the good old days”— movies that astounded you visually, throttled your adrenaline, but also made you think— 009 Re:Cyborg is definitely an extension of that tradition. The film comes to you with the cutting-edge action-packed production values of legendary studio Production I.G. (Psycho-Pass, Ghost in the Shell: Arise), plus smart, slick direction that could only come from the mind of the director of Ghost in the Shell: SAC and Eden of the East, Kenji Kamiyama.

 

The first-run release of 009 Re:Cyborg is our Limited Edition and comes with an exclusive 44-page Interview and Data booklet, packed to the brim with behind-the-scenes key points about the direction and world of the film, as well as artwork, character profiles, and a very thorough interview with the director. As anime fans, we’ve loved seeing Director Kamiyama’s take on how technology affects human interactions in our modern and increasingly globalized world, themes hugely apparent in his past works, so if you like cool sci-fi that also has meaning, 009 Re:Cyborg is a real showcase of all of that. When we say that this booklet is packed, we mean PACKED— it’s very dense and a great value add to any fans who wants to get a little more out of anime. Look out for previews of the booklet soon!

 

With that all out of the way, here’s your cast!

New Release Tuesday – Armitage Rumble!

ARMITAGE III – Movie Collection

Anime Classics

 

Available Now! – Buy here on DVD

 

Finally, the original cyberpunk classic is available in one comprehensive collection. One of the first productions to enlist famous American actors such as Kiefer Sutherland [24], multiple award winner Bryan Cranston [Breaking Bad], and Juliette Lewis [Natural Born Killers], and created by a team of anime masterminds—including writers Akinori Endo [Battle Angel] and Chiaki Konaka [Serial Experiments: Lain, Hellsing]—Armitage III: The Complete Saga is a must-have for anime and sci-fi devotees.

 

Armitage is a brash cybernetic cop who sports a racy wardrobe and an attitude to match. Patrolling an unruly metropolis on Mars, she’s got a grudge against a society where androids are at the mercy of unsympathetic humans. In the original OVAs—also coalesced as the feature film Poly Matrix—Armitage risks everything to hunt down a vicious android killer and solve the secret to her existence. The sequel, Dual Matrix, finds her in an over-charged battle to save her loved ones from an obsessive doctor and his deadly Armitage replicas.

Something Special is Coming for Soul Eater Superfans

Soul_Eater_Yearbook_Cover FrontIn 2010, we began releasing Soul Eater. It turns out that more than a few of you enjoyed the Cool-with-a-capital-C class of the Death Weapon Meister Academy.

 

Recently, our team realized that in spite of how popular Soul Eater is and has always been, the show has never received any kind of specialty packaging. As you are probably guessing at this very moment…we’ve decided to change that.

 

On June 30, 2015—the same day that prequel series Soul Eater Not! goes on sale –we will release Soul Eater in a Blu-ray Premium Edition, exclusively for the series’ superfans. This special release consists of:

 

- Soul Eater The Complete Series on Blu-ray (51 episode + 80 minutes of on-disc extras)
- A hard-bound Soul Eater “yearbook” featuring 64 pages of glossy, full-color art
- And yes, there are pages where you can have friends—or perhaps your favorite Soul Eater voice actors –sign messages!

 

This release is not a retailer exclusive, but we are printing a very limited quantity, so we strongly recommend that you preorder it now! Click here.

 

And don’t forget to buy Soul Eater Not!—the prequel to Soul Eater featuring back stories for some of your favorite characters, and some new classmates we know you’ll love! Click here.

 

New Release Tuesday – All Fired Up!

Today’s New Release Tuesday title is heavy-hitting enough to stand all on its own!

Fairy Tail – Part 15

 

Available Now on Blu-ray/DVD! – Click Here!

 

Summary
The most epic magic tournament in history continues as Fairy Tail attempts to snatch victory from the strongest guilds in the Grand Magic Games. The competition heats up as the guilds in the competition start playing dirty, Erza takes it upon herself to challenge one hundred deadly opponents, and four dragon slayers battle it out in an epic fight unlike anything the Fiore Kingdom has ever seen—one that threatens to rip the entire arena apart. But as the spells fly in the games, a conspiracy targeting one of Fairy Tail’s members plays out behind the scenes, and a dark, familiar magic permeates the air. With the magical world completely focused on the competing guilds, a looming threat gains power—but will anyone notice before it’s too late?

#TBT – A Certain Scientific Analysis: The Science Behind Railgun

Time for a little Throwback Thursday! In celebration of our newest release of A Certain Scientific Railgun (on Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack for the first time! Buy it today to see Misaka’s adventures in HD!), we’re reposting the first installment of our “A Certain Scientific Analysis” series, where we look at the science behind the show in the A Certain Magical Index/A Certain Scientific Railgun anime series. Learn how Misaka’s Railgun powers stack up against a real-life railgun superweapon!

 

(You can also see more of our Analysis series with A Certain Scientific Analysis S, which covers Railgun S [season 2]. We’ll be putting part 3 of our series soon on this blog, so keep an eye out for it!)

 

The characters of “A Certain Scientific Railgun” wield amazing esper powers, but nearly none are more impressive than our protagonist, Mikoto Misaka, nicknamed “the Railgun.” Her electricity powers, based on the electromagnetic projective launcher of the same name, allow her to shoot small arcade coins at high speeds for maximum damage. In other words, she’s a badass.
But what is a railgun? We’ve asked Justin Lan, a mechanical engineer from MIT, to explain the concept—and how it relates to the show.

 

Warning: Those of you with an aversion to science and/or math may wish to turn back now, but it’d be nice if you stay. I’ll keep it simple, I promise!
