posted on by Andrew Osmond
The video company Cine du Monde has announced via facebook that the anime DVD release of Ice will be delayed from its original date of October 24 to November 7. The two-week delay is due to the "late delivery of mastering materials."
ICE is directed by Makoto Kobayashi, also known for his mechanical designs on such titles as Giant Robo, Last Exile, and the upcoming sequel Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing. The story takes place in the near future when all male humans in the world have died off and only 20,000 females remain living in the Tokyo ward of Shinjuku. While some of the survivors decide to accept humanity's death sentence and live bacchanal lives, other fight over a mysterious substance called ICE that may be humanity's salvation. PPM animated the project.
Cine du Monde previously indicated that the DVD will be sub-only, unlike the edition being released by Sentai Filmworks in America, which includes a dub.
