ADV Announces Blue Seed: Complete Collection


HOUSTON, February 4, 2005 – The battle to save mankind begins February 15, 2005 with the Thinpak Box Set release of Blue Seed. Prepare for an all-out war of epic proportion with the complete 26 episode release of this groundbreaking anime masterpiece.

Blue Seed, based on the popular manga by Yuzo Takada (3X3 Eyes), is an action/adventure series with a touch of horror and full of hideous, shape-shifting beasts with a bad attitude and a voracious appetite for human flesh.

For years, the supernatural forces of the shape-shifting Aragami have feasted on a steady diet of human sacrifices, allowing them to live peacefully among mankind…until now. Evil is brewing inside them, and they are craving their next victim. Accidentally impregnated with an Aragmi child, known as the 'blue seed,' teenager Momiji Fujimiya is destined to fall prey to that which lives inside her, unless she can find refuge in Kusanagi, a man who once was a servant of the evil she is running from.

Blue Seed ($59.98 SRP) is a DVD-only release containing the entire twenty-six episode series on four discs presented in English 2.0, Spanish 2.0 and Japanese 2.0 with English subtitles. Collection includes the entire series in a brand new Thinpak Box Set. Extras include: character bios, original series trailers, clean credit animation, Omake Theater, and ADV previews.
