Afro Samurai Directors Cut DVD to hit the UK in October

Date: Saturday 1st September 2007 [18:04] | Posted By: Joe

Fans of Afro Samurai in the UK will be pleased to hear that on 15th October 2007 the directors cut DVD of the show will be available in the UK. It includes 15 minutes of extra footage, unedited dialogue, features with the voice actors of title too and much more.

Fans who have already bought the limited edition version of Afro Samurai we mentioned earlier may be disappointed to hear that they're releasing an uncut version so soon, as it's always bad to feel as if you're being milked by a company, on the other hand, at least the limited edition version was affordable.
