News Perfect Blue Blu-ray/DVD Combi Release Delayed to October 28
The facebook page of Anime Limited has confirmed that the Blu-ray/DVD combi edition Satoshi Kon's psycho-thriller Perfect Blue has been delayed to October 28. On the page, Anime Limited said, "The delay is nothing serious, rather final approval on the designs took a little longer than we would have liked.'
The feature film was the director debut for Kon, who went to make Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, Paranoia Agent and Paprika before his death in 2010. Set in contemporary Tokyo, the story concerns a pop singer, Mima, who tries to develop an acting career, only to experience threats and traumas as her mind breaks down and she is tormented by a ghostly version of her singer self. The film was previously released on VHS and DVD by Manga Entertainment.
