We’re so excited to announce that the mecha sci-fi adventure Cannon Busters, from the incredible LeSean Thomas, is coming to Blu-ray from Funimation!

The anime series, which was the product of an international collaboration between Thomas and Japanese studios Satelight (Aquarion EVOL) and Yumeta Company (Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna), follows the adventures of the friendship droid S.A.M., a maintenance robot who’s a bit off and a deadly criminal on the run.

The three set out on a journey unlike any other, all in the search for the next rightful ruler of a tattered kingdom! Oh, and that heir is S.A.M.’s best friend. And we’re so excited to bring this truly collaborative anime series to home video!

In addition to the standard Blu-ray release of Cannon Busters, which includes all 12 episodes of the series subbed and dubbed, there is also a Limited Edition release planned. And yes, it will be PACKED with special goodies. Stay tuned very soon for more info on the home video release.
