posted on by Andrew Osmond
Manga Entertainment will release the film Mardock Scramble: The Third Exhaust on Monday August 3, on both Blu-ray (pictured) and DVD. Following on directly from Mardock Scramble: The First Compression and Mardock Scramble: The Second Combustion, the film is the last part of an anime trilogy based on Tow Ubukata's novel. The story is about a girl, Rune Balot (voiced by Megumi Hayashibara), who falls victim to a serial killer in a future city, but is resurrected as an advanced cyborg, looking for vengeance.
MVM will release the TV series Campione on Blu-ray and DVD. It is based on Jō Taketsuki's original light novels about Godō, an ordinary high school student who kills a god and claims its powers. As a result, Godō becomes a Campione who slays other gods. The series stars Yōko Hikasa as Erica Blandelli and Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Godō Kusanagi. Keizou Kusakawa (Dog Days, Ro-Kyu-Bu!) directed the anime off scripts supervised by Jukki Hanada (Princess Jellyfish, Rozen Maiden). Masakazu Ishikawa (Squid Girl) is created the character designs, and Tatsuya Katou (Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, MEDAKA BOX) scored the music.
