After months, if not years, of set-backs Anime Limited have today confirmed through Instagram that 009 Re:Cyborg will be released as a Collectors Edition Blu-ray on the 14th September 2015.

Details as to why the title was held-up for so long have not been mentioned, we assume it has something to do with assets and approvals, but at least the film will finally be making its way to UK stores. Read more of this post

009 Re: Cyborg (Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack) – REGION LOCKED

009 Re:Cyborg (Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack)

BD Region: A (Confirmed NOT Playable in the UK)
Boxart states Region A only

DVD Region: 1 (Confirmed NOT Playable in the UK)
Boxart states Region 1 only

Price: $20.19 / £13.03 (Excluding postage)

Episodes: 1 feature length film (DVD & Blu-ray)

Plot: From Kenji Kamiyama, the visionary director behind Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, comes an intense, visually captivating sci-fi thriller.

Many years ago, nine humans were captured and transformed into cyborgs for the purposes of becoming agents of evil. Instead, they rebelled, becoming champions of justice anytime the earth was in need.

Now, in a post-9/11 world, the meaning of “justice” has become clouded. The cyborgs, untouched by time, and some without memory of their status as heroes, have since taken up lives as ordinary civilians. But when a mysterious force known only as “His Voice” compels people across the world to commit unspeakable acts of violence, even cyborg 009, Joe Shimamura, falls victim to the irresistible faceless power.

In an era when cyber-terrorism is rapidly advancing, how can the cyborgs combat an enemy that has no face, no weapons, and seemingly no motive?

—-NOTE—-

Anime Limited will be releasing this film in the UK as a ‘Collectors Edition’ Blu-ray at some point in the near future; alternatively the film is available from Madman Entertainment in Australia, which is of course Region B compatible. Furthermore both the UK and Australian release include the film in 3D; where as this US release is apparently 2D only.
