Manga UK announces Dragonball Z on DVD and hints at other titles

Date: Wednesday 28th March 2012 [12:52] | Posted By: Eeeper

UK based distributor Manga UK announces Dragonball Z on DVD and hints at other titles waiting in the wings.
Full Story
In an announcement on it's official Twitter, UK based distributor Manga Entertainment announced they have acquired the rights to Toei's seminal classic Dragonball Z which they plan to release from July 2012 onward with plans to release all 291 episodes by September next year.

In another development, Manga also hinted at a theoretical re-release, possibly on blu ray, of the classic animated action film, Ninja Scroll. This is ahead of the planned release of Ninja Scroll on blu ray in Japan. Ninja Scroll has long been one of Manga's tentpole titles since it's original release in the 1990's.

These statements go ahead of Manga UK's planned announcement panel at Birmingham's Comic Con on the 31st of March.

Dragonball Z statement from Manga:

DRAGON BALL Z SERIES ONE Comes to U.K. DVD on 2nd July 2012

"A pure expression of everything that's great about anime." Escapist Magazine.
DRAGON BALL Z SERIES ONE (cert.12) will released on DVD (34.99) by Manga Entertainment on 2nd July 2012. Manga Entertainment will release all 291 episodes across nine season box sets starting on 2nd July (full dates below).

Fast Sell: One of the biggest anime franchises of all time and the one that introduced many anime fans to the genre in the first place finally comes to DVD in the UK, digitally remastered from the original Japanese film masters and captured in high-definition widescreen!
Key Talent: Scripted by Akira Toriyama
(creator of the manga on which it was based) and directed by Daisuke Nishio.

Synopsis: The Saiyans are coming! The last survivors of a cruel, warrior race, these ruthless villains have carved a path of destruction across the galaxy, and now they have set their sights on Earth. They will stop at nothing until they have the wish-granting powers of the seven magic Dragon Balls for their very own.

With the fate of his family, friends, and the entire human race hanging in the balance, Goku, the Earth's greatest hero, must rise to meet the approaching threat. As he prepares for the fight of his life, Goku embarks on an epic journey that will take him to other worlds, pit him against new and old enemies alike, and force him to confront the dark secrets of his own past. At the end of his path, the most powerful opponent he has ever faced awaits the evil Saiyan Prince Vegeta!

We Like It Because: This release is pretty much the Holy Grail for Dragon Ball Z fans. Featuring 39 episodes over six discs, it delivers over 900 minutes of pure anime action beautifully remastered to create a stunning visual and audio experience. Dragon Ball Z has never looked or sounded this good before.
