Media Blasters has announced that they will be releasing Masamune Shirow's Gundress in May, and that a limited Theatrical Release is being planned.

Media Blasters has announced that Mamune Shirow's Gundress will be released on DVD and VHS on May 28th and that a limited theatrical release is "already in the planning."

Gundress is a feature length cyber-punk action film surrounding a five woman para-military unit and their landmate mecha armor suits trying to stop a terrorist threat to futuristic Japan. Masamune Shirow provided the character and mecha designs for the film. Gundress earned some notoriety for its rushed production schedule and release to Japanese theaters in an unfinished, rough form in 1999. In June 2000 a limited edition production of only 5000 DVDs was released to the Japanese market. This extremely rare Japanese DVD included both the original theatrical version and a five-minute longer "completed" version of the film.
