1991 classic anime has script by Katsuhiro Otomo and art designs by Satoshi Kon.

The classic 1991 feature-length OAV Roujin Z is planned for a U.K. release next May on both DVD and Blu-ray, Kaze has told ANN. The film is an SF satire about an elderly man at the mercy of his robot bed, which suddenly escapes and causes havoc in Japan.

The script was by Katsuhiro Otomo, who also co-created the mechanical design. In addition, Roujin Z had art design by future director Satoshi Kon. The film was released to British cinemas in 1994, and came out as a videotape (pictured) from Manga Entertainment the same year. However, the videotape has been long deleted.

As reported by the Anime UK News website, the French site Catsuka is streaming a trailer for the French edition of the film, which will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on February 22.

Update - Past U.K. release details corrected, thanks to Kristin Jones for the correction.
