posted on by Karen Ressler
Sentai Filmworks announced on Wednesday that it has licensed the anime She, The Ultimate Weapon (Saikano). The company plans to release the series digitally and on home video.
Viz Media previously licensed the 2002 anime series based on Shin Takahashi's manga and released it on DVD in North America in 2004.
Sentai Filmworks describes the story:
Not every soldier wants to fight. Not every weapon wants to be used. But when an unexpected force attacks their city, the hopes and dreams of students Shuji and Chise are shattered by the fires of war. Surviving the bombing after a mysterious defender decimates the attackers, Shuji discovers Chise in the ruins. But she is no longer the girl he has always known. Changed and twisted by military experiments, she has been altered into something no longer completely human. And even worse, though they both fight to deny it, the things that made her the person she was are slowly beginning to fade away. Can a human soul exist inside a device that was created to kill? And can any heart continue to feel love for something that is only a shell of the person it once was?
