The North American anime distributor Media Blasters will re-release the 1998 action-drama anime Kite on Blu-ray Disc. Slated for a February 28, 2012 sale date, the anime will be available in two versions, both as general release and an 18+ uncut edition from Kitty Media. The 60-minute Blu-ray Disc will feature both episodes in Japanese and English. The uncut edition will feature an additional 10 minutes of explicit footage from the original Japanese release.
The live action adaptation of Kite is currently in pre-production. Distant Horizon, the South African movie company which also produced The Neighbor No. Thirteen, is making the film. David R. Ellis (Shark Night 3D) has recently been hired to direct the film with Rob Cohen producing. Production is expected to start early next year.
