Terraformars Revenge Anime to Have 13 Episodes
posted on by Karen Ressler
Warner Brothers Home Entertainment will release the full Terraformars Revenge sequel anime on a DVD box set with 13 episodes.
The set will ship in Japan on September 28 for 8,900 yen (about US$80). The series will also be available on limited edition Blu-ray singles, the first of which will contain the anime's first two episodes and is slated for June 22.
Crunchyroll describes the story:
2620 A.D. In order to find a vaccine for the virus from Mars with a death rate of 100% called the Alien Engine Virus, Hizamaru and the crew went to Mars to get a sample of one of the giant cockroach creatures, otherwise known as Terraformars. An unforeseen accident happens, and while Akari and the others fight the roaches to try to escape, humanity is fighting with each other behind closed doors. The ultimate story of survival with Mars as the background... Round 2 is about to start!
The first 13-episode television anime series adapting the Annex 1 arc of the manga premiered in September 2014, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. The companion original video anime (OVA) project adapted the Bugs 2 arc on discs bundled with the 10th and 11th manga volumes. The Annex 1 arc takes place 20 years after the Bugs 2 arc.
The sequel's staff differs from the first season. Michio Fukuda (Hyakko, Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan: Demon Capital) took over for Hiroshi Hamasaki as director at the studios Liden Films and TYO Animations.
