The official website for video publisher Cinedigm confirms that the company will release Toei Animation's Mononoke anime on DVD on July 15. The series will come on two DVDs for US$19.95. Cinedigm describes the story:
In feudal Japan, evil spirits known as mononoke plague both households and the countryside, leaving a trail of fear in their wake. One mysterious person has the power to slay the mononoke where they stand; he is known only as the Medicine Seller, and he vanquishes the spirits using the power of his Exorcism Sword. However, in order to draw his sword he must first understand the Form, Truth and Reason of the mononoke. Armed with a sharp wit and keen intellect, the Medicine Seller wanders from place to place, striking down the evil spirits in his wake.
Mononoke is the 2007 spinoff of Ayakashi - Samurai Horror Tales. The series has not previously been released on home video in North America. Siren Visual released the series in Australia and New Zealand.
