Gasaraki anime DVD scheduled for February
Right Stuf’s Nozomi Entertainment division has recently announced that the Gasaraki Complete Series DVD is set for release on February 7th, 2012. The DVD collection will contain all 25 episodes of the hit anime and will include Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo audio for both English and Japanese dialogue, as well as removable English subtitles and on-screen translations. Gasaraki is a mech series that was created and directed by Ryousuke Takahashi (Armored Trooper Votoms, GaoGaiGar, Blue Gender). The grounded and somewhat divisive anime was produced by Sunrise back in 1998, with the mechanical designs coming from Yutaka Izubuchi (Patlabor, RahXephon) and Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed, Bubblegum Crisis)
The story of Gasaraki is set in a fictional version of the Middle East, as two conflicting sides with access to weapons of mass destruction decide to go on an all-out war with each other. However, in their world where giant robots are real, they find out that the most dangerous weapon of all still lie inside a human mind, as Yushiro, a member of the mysterious and powerful Gowa family, finds himself at the center of events that may change mankind’s future forever.
The DVD set is set to retail for $49.99 and will come in 5 DVD discs.
