Anime Limited Acquires Wings of Honneamise
posted on by Andrew Osmond
Anime Limited has posted the following message on its website:
Anime Limited is pleased to announce its acquisition of the cult sci-fi film Wings of Honneamise produced by Studio GAINAX and directed by Hiroyuki Yamaga.
Set in a world eerily similar to our own, war between the Kingdom of Honneamise and its archrival, The Republic, seems inevitable. But even as the two nations' rapidly evolving technology creates new ways to wage greater and more deadly forms of warfare, a small group seeks to use those same advances to propel mankind forward into the future and into space in their world's first manned spaceflight program.
For astronaut candidate Shirotsugh Lhadatt, it's not just a journey beyond the reach of the atmosphere, but a personal odyssey as he grows from an aimless young man into a leader willing to put everything on the line in order to move the human race forward and away from the brink of Armageddon.
A cult classic piece of cinema, to be made available for the first time in the UK in High-Definition in November 2014 both in Collectors Edition and regular edition combi-packs.
Expect pre-orders to go live in June 2014 across all good retailer.
On its facebook page, Anime Limited also commented, " Who knows, you may get some chances to see it in the cinema too...."
The film was previously released on VHS tape by Manga Entertainment; this edition had one scene cut out in order to obtain a PG certificate.
