posted on by Andrew Osmond
On Monday September 19, Anime Limited will release the 26-part music drama Beck, originally broadcast in 2004. Some of the episodes were previously released in the UK by Revelation Films, but the series wasn't completed.
In the series, Tanaka Yukio ('Koyuki') is a 14 year-old boy who feels disconnected from life in general. Through the act of saving a dog, he meets guitarist Minami Ryuusuke, and becomes involved in Ryuusuke's new band BECK. Koyuki's life starts to change as the band struggles towards fame.
MVM will release the series 11eyes, including the 12 TV episodes and the OAV. Director Masami Shimoda and the anime studio Doga Kobo based the 2009 series on the 11eyes-Tsumi to Batsu to Aganai no Shōjo- fantasy adult computer game from Lass. The game centered on Kakeru Satsuki, a boy who has been mourning the loss of his last remaining family member, his older sister, for the past five years. Satsuki, his childhood friend Yuka Minase, and four other humans are suddenly transported to the world of "Red Night," where a giant black moon hangs over the skies. The six can only return home after dealing with Ralva and the six Black Knights of this alternate world.
Anime Limited will also release the second half of Samurai Flamenco on Bu-ray, carrying parts 12 to 22 of the offbeat superhero series.
