Kenji Kamiyama's SF action film release by Anime Limited

Anime Limited has announced it will release the anime film 009 Re:Cyborg on Blu-ray and DVD in June. There will be a Collector's Edition Blu-ray/DVD pack, as well as a standard edition DVD.

Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) wrote and directed the action science-fiction film, inspired by Shotaro Ishinomori's original manga Cyborg 009. Kenji Kawai handled the music for the film, which opened in Japan in October 2012.

The story begins in 2013 when skyscrapers in London, Moscow, Berlin, and New York are destroyed by simultaneous bombings. The indiscriminate terrorism by an unknown group with unknown motives sets off widespread panic throughout the world.

There was once a group of nine cyborg fighters who rescued humanity from threats, but they had disbanded to their home countries. Now the man who created them, Dr. Gilmore, has summoned and assembled them back together again. However, the 00 Number Cyborgs' former leader, a Japanese man named Joe Shimamura, is now living alone in Tokyo's Roppongi with his past memories erased.
