Anime Limited Confirm 009 Re:Cyborg Release Details at MCM Belfast Comic Con 2015


This past weekend saw the MCM Comic Con head to Belfast in Ireland; and as part of the event Anime Limited attended to host a panel unveiling some interesting new details surrounding their upcoming products; most notable confirmed release details for their feature-length-film 009 Re:Cyborg.

As confirmed at the event Anime Limited are planning to release the film as a Collectors Edition Blu-ray and DVD Combi Pack as well as a standard edition DVD in early july; with the Collectors Edition bundle receiving a variety of bonus content – all of which is listed below:

  • Disc 1 (Blu-ray) containing the film both in 2D and 3D.
  • Disc 2 (DVD) will contain the film along with the following extras: 2 x Film Teasers, 2 x Trailers, Promo Video and the Special Prologue. [NOTE: This is also the same disc that will be included in the Standard Edition DVD version.]
  • Disc 3 “Bonus Disc” (DVD) will contain lots of bonus material. These being 5 special featurettes RE: Animation, RE: Sound, an interview with Director Kenji Kamiyama, 3D Preview At Ishinomaki and Premium Screening at Shinjuku Wald 9.

As you can tell the Blu-ray disc will only contain the film in both 2D and 3D formats, in both Japanese and English audio languages; and it will not contain any additional bonus content. The bonus content itself has been placed onto a DVD and while this may seem disappointing there is a good point to it – and thats due to not enough space being available on the ‘feature film’ disc and potentially because Blu-ray authoring costs are too high for the bonus features themselves.

Of course this comes as disappointing news, especially those – like us – who actually enjoying watching bonus materials in its best quality; but at least we actually get to see the bonus content as it could have easily been ignored entirely.

Along with the release details for 009 Re:Cyborg Anime Limited also confirmed that they would be releasing Plastic Memories, which is currently streaming for free on Viewster, and Tokyo Ghoul on Blu-ray and DVD within the next year. Further details surrounding all three of these products will be released in due-course.
