Animatsu To Release Gatchaman Crowds on Blu-ray and DVD in April


Ok; so this news is relatively old, as Gatchaman Crowds has been available to pre-order on Amazon UK for quite-some-time now, but with the recent string of delays and cancelations i thought you guys might want some cheering up.

Anyway; as you may already be aware Animatsu, which is a new UK distributor-come-license specalist, plan to release a selection of anime titles in the coming weeks; but what you may not know is that their first anime release will be Gatchaman Crowds, which is being released on the 27th April 2015 on both DVD and Blu-ray.

I won’t bore you with the specifics but it will feature the entire series with English and Japanese audio languages; but for those interested then here is the a snippet from the shows synopsis:

A secret war rages in the shadows of Tachikawa City, where every day its unsuspecting citizens fall prey to the unseen and unfamiliar foes around them. With the citizens powerless to stop their erratic and indefensible attacks, a new kind of hero emerges to push back the encroaching darkness: enter the Gatchaman! Gifted with alien technology the likes of which the world has never seen, and imbued with a much needed jolt of whimsy and adventure from its latest oddball recruit, Hajime Ichinose, the Gatchaman’s mission is to protect in secret, to defend unnoticed.

Following-on from the release date confirmation Animatsu have also provided us with a template artwork of what to expect from the product; and we have to say it looks pretty clean and neat – which is something we’d expect from veterans of the anime industry.
