Bandai Visual USA Announces Release of Haruka Anime

Jan 15th 2008
Torrance, Calif., January 15, 2008 – Bandai Visual USA announced today the
release of “Haruka: Beyond the Stream of Time – A Tale of the Eight Guardians” on
DVD. The release date for the first volume is scheduled for April 22, 2008.

“HARUKA” is originally a hit Japanese romance adventure video game franchise
from KOEI Co., Ltd. which has been made into a successful on-going manga in Japan.
Now Director Aki Tsunaki brings an animated adaptation of the story across twenty-six
episodes in nine volumes.

The manga is now being serialized in
SHOJO BEAT magazine and the first volume
of the graphic novel is expected to release in
April. Both the manga and SHOJO BEAT
magazine are published by Viz Media.

The plot revolves around an ordinary
high school girl, Akane, who is mysteriously
transported to a world resembling the Heian
period of ancient Japan. Akane discovers she
has been pre-ordained as the Priestess of the
Dragon God. However, the purpose of her
transportation to the past is clouded by the
involvement of Akram, the head of the Demon
clan, which has sworn death and destruction on
the capital. Akane is therefore appointed eight
male protectors, the Eight Guardians, to stand
by her side and guard her from the danger that
awaits...
