posted on by Andrew Osmond
On Monday October 19, Animatsu will release the series Samurai Jam -Bakumatsu Rock- on both Blu-ray and DVD. The story is set in the Bakumatsu era, at the end of the shoguns' rule over Japan in the middle of the 19th century. The Tokugawa shogunate use the brainwashing "Heaven's Songs" by the top idols in Shinsengumi to subjugate the country and its people. In this Japan, writing or singing any songs besides the "Heaven's Songs" is a capital offense. Ryōma Sakamoto and the other rockers rise up and change the world with rock 'n' roll for freedom and justice.
Itsuro Kawasaki (Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings, The Legend of the Legendary Heroes, Arc the Lad) is directing the anime at Studio Deen. Mitsutaka Hirota (The Prince of Tennis II, X-Men) is in charge of the scripts, and Akiharu Ishii (The Prince of Tennis, Blood+, Loups=Garous - The Motion Picture) is designing the characters.
