Maiden Japan Licenses Den-noh Coil Anime

posted on by Karen Ressler
Release slated for June with English dub

Section23 Films announced in its June 2016 release slate that Maiden Japan will release the 2007 anime Den-noh Coil (Dennō Coil) on Blu-ray and DVD in North America on June 28. The release will include an English dub.

Maiden Japan describes the story:

Yuko "Yasako" Okonogi and her little sister Kyoko can't remember a time when they weren't looking at the world through their digitally augmented glasses. After all, e-space, a series of world-wide overlays of images and information, is where their virtual dog Densuke lives, and like many kids, the girls rarely take their glasses off. But when their family moves to Daikoku City, the e-space suddenly seems different. Yasako's new classmates are involved in hacking, and the urban legends about dangerous entities hidden in the programming become much more believable when she learns that one of their friends may have died chasing one. Scariest of all, Yasako has missing memories from the last time she was in Daikoku City. Did something happen to her? And did it happen in our world or one that shouldn't even exist? To find out, she'll have to take a journey through the digital looking glass and learn the shocking secrets of Den-noh Coil!

Since its debut in 2007, the sci-fi anime has won multiple awards and honors. Director and creator Mitsuo Iso also won an individual award at the anime industry's 13th Animation Kobe Awards in 2008.

Siren Visual previously released the anime with English subtitles in Australia and New Zealand.
