It seems Animatsu Entertainment are ‘on a roll’ with this Sentai Filmwork aquistions for the UK; as the distributor have announced that they have secured the UK distribution rights to Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water and they will be releasing it on DVD and Blu-ray later this year.
The World’s Fair, Paris, 1889: a young inventor crosses paths with an enigmatic girl and her pet lion. Suddenly they find themselves pursued by villainous trio intent upon stealing the magical Blue Water. Thus begins an epic adventure inspired by Jules Verne’s masterpiece 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
From the legendary creative team of Hideaki Anno and Hayao Miyazaki it’s little wonder Nadia has retained its sparkle 25 years on. It’s still a magical piece of storytelling, filled with quirky characters, fantastical twists, and stunning animation.
Ever since the series was released in America last year fans have been asking for a UK release, so its nice to see a distributor pull-through and bring it over here; especially as the series is not only longer than the norm but its a re-master of a relatively old show.
For those uware Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water features 39 episodes spread over numerous discs; Animatsu Entertainment plan to release the series as a ‘complete’ box set – just like it’s american release – on both DVD and Blu-ray with the current release date slated for 1st June 2015.
