posted on by Andrew Osmond
Also DVD/Blu-ray release of live-action Yakuza Weapon.

MVM's reissue of Kiddy Grade in a complete series box-set will be released on Monday. Rated 12, it has a running time of around 600 minutes, and an RRP of £39.99.

Animated by Studio Gonzo, the 24-part series was first broadcast on Japanese television in 2002. A science-fiction space opera, the series involves two female agents, Éclair and the junior Lumière, whose duty is to protect order in the galaxy.

Monday also sees the Blu-ray/DVD release of the live-action Yakuza Weapon, which was shown at the 2011 Terracotta Film Festival in London. Rated 18, it is based on a manga by Ken Ishikawa (protégé of Go Nagai). One of the film's distributors, Sushi Typhoon, described Yakuza Weapon as "a hard-edged battle royale featuring tough gangsters, deadly women and cybernetic penis implants."

Erratum - An earlier version of this article had the incorrect heading, 'Fruits Basket Complete Collection Released Monday.' Apologies for the mistake.
