Jujutsu Kaisen and Dog & Scissors Released Monday

posted on by Andrew Osmond
Also new 4K edition of Satoshi Kon's film Millennium Actress and standard Blu-ray of AntiMagic Academy "The 35th Test Platoon"

On Monday June 6, Anime Limited will release Season 1 Part 1 of Jujutsu Kaisen, both as a Collector's Blu-ray (pictured) and a standard Blu-ray. The Collector's Edition will include a 40-page booklet and eight art cards.

Anime Limited summarises the series:

"Yuji Itadori is a boy with tremendous physical strength, though he lives a completely ordinary high school life. One day, to save a classmate who has been attacked by Curses, he eats the finger of the Double-Faced Specter, taking the Curse into his own soul. From then on, he shares one body with the Double-Faced Specter. Guided by the most powerful of sorcerers, Satoru Gojo, Itadori is admitted to the Tokyo Jujutsu High School, an organization that fights the Curses..."

Sunghoo Park (The God of High School) directed the anime at MAPPA. Hiroshi Seko (Attack on Titan: Lost Girls, Banana Fish, Vinland Saga) wrote and supervised the scripts. Tadashi Hiramatsu (His and Her Circumstances, Yuri!!! on Ice, Parasyte -the maxim-) designed the characters. Hiroaki Tsutsumi, Yoshimasa Terui, and Arisa Okehazama composed the music.

MVM will release the series Dog & Scissors on Blu-ray. MVM describes the series:

"Harumi Kazuhito could spend days at a time with his head buried in his beloved books, and little would make him happier than perusing the pages of his favorite author. Unfortunately, when Harumi gets himself killed he inexplicably finds himself reincarnated as a dog... which might not be so bad if he could read, or his new owner didn't have the unfortunate twin predilections of playing with scissors and tormenting her new pet."

Yukio Takahashi (episode director for B Gata H Kei - Yamada’s First Time, Last Exile -Fam, The Silver Wing-) made his full directing debut with the series, and Toshizo Nemoto (Tokyo Majin, Inu X Boku Secret Service) was in charge of series composition. Youko Satou (Pipopapo Patrol-kun) was in charge of character design, and Akito Matsuda (Koitabi ~True Tours Nanto) composed the music. The anime is based on Shunsuke Sarai's 15-volume light novel series.

Anime Limited will also release a new edition of Satoshi Kon's 2001 film Millennium Actress, including the film on both 4K UHD and standard Blu-ray.

Anime Limited will also release a standard Blu-ray edition of AntiMagic Academy "The 35th Test Platoon".
