Anime Limited Announces Wings of Honneamise for Home Video Release


As part of Anime Limited’s build-up to MCM Comic Con announcements the UK Anime distributor have announced on their website that they have acquried the UK Home video distribution rights to the 1987 feature-length-movie Wings of Honneamise, a film produced by GAINAX and directed by Hiroyuki Yamaga.

Set in a world eerily similar to our own, war between the Kingdom of Honneamise and its archrival, The Republic, seems inevitable. But even as the two nations’ rapidly evolving technology creates new ways to wage greater and more deadly forms of warfare, a small group seeks to use those same advances to propel mankind forward into the future and into space in their world’s first manned spaceflight program.

For astronaut candidate Shirotsugh Lhadatt, it’s not just a journey beyond the reach of the atmosphere, but a personal odyssey as he grows from an aimless young man into a leader willing to put everything on the line in order to move the human race forward and away from the brink of Armageddon.

Wings of Honneamise is a ‘old-skool’ anime film, and as such will appeal to the older generations of anime fans, especially to those who liked the art style of the late eighties.

Anime Limited plans to release Wings of Honneamise onto standard DVD and collectors edition Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack later this year.
