Anime Limited to Release Eden of the East TV Series as a Premium Edition Blu-ray

Eden of the East - 08 - Large 13

In a relatively bizarre announcement Anime Limited have revealed that they will be releasing a Premium Edition of Eden of the East on Blu-ray later this year.

Episodes: 1 – 11 (2 Blu-ray’s)

Plot: It’s been a little over a year since Inspector Akane Tsunemori chose to put her faith in the Sibyl System and keep its true nature a secret. Assigned to a new division with a few familiar faces, Akane and her team of Inspectors and Enforcers are charged with upholding the law in a society where just thinking about a crime is enough to get you locked away forever—or executed on the spot.

Just as Akane settles into her new routine, a terrorist bombing in the center of the city shakes the System to its core and launches an investigation that uncovers a network of latent criminals who claim their leader has the power to lower their crime coefficients. After Enforcers begin turning up dead with cryptic messages scrawled near their bodies, Akane starts closing in on the answers she’s looking for—completely unaware that an even deadlier threat is lurking closer than she could ever imagine.

I’m not usually a fan of these types of series, but Cardcaptor Sakura has always been a personal favourite of mine; eitherway the Blu-ray set has arrived and it’s now time to unbox it “Hoorah!”

Where to begin; well the Premium Edition of Cardcaptor Sakura contains the entire series (70 episodes) over 9 Blu-ray discs; each of which have been remastered in 1080p and left in their original 4:3 aspect ratio; but wait thats not all. This American release feature both the original Japanese Audio (with English subtitles) along with the rare Singapore/Asian Animax English Dub – a Dub which has ‘never’ been released outside of asian countires and as such makes this set ‘extra’ special.
