Right Stuf's Nozomi Entertainment Announces Re-Price for Lost Universe DVD Thinpak Collection

Complete 26-episode series available for $39.99 on August 3, 2010

GRIMES, IA, April 28, 2010 – Anime producer and distributor Right Stuf, Inc. and Nozomi Entertainment are pleased to announce the LOST UNIVERSE DVD Thinpak Collection will be available for a new, lower SRP of $39.99 starting August 3, 2010.

This DVD collection is housed in a slim-profile art box and features unedited and remastered video, Japanese and English-language audio options, and two subtitle tracks (standard and on-screen translations).

Lost Universe shares a creative team with the popular Slayers anime series: Both anime properties were based upon novels by Hajime Kanzaka (Slayers), directed by Takashi Watanabe (Slayers, Slayers Next, Slayers Try, Shakugan No Shana) and feature character designs by Naomi Miyata (Slayers, Slayers Next, Slayers Try). Additionally, both vocal casts are led by Megumi Hayashibara (“Lina Inverse” in Slayers), who also performs the theme songs for each series.

* “whacked out space adventure” – Digitally Obsessed
* “A light SF fantasy romp about good vs. evil. And cute hologram girls. – AnimeOnDVD at Mania.com

Millie Nocturne has one great goal in life: to be the best in the universe… at absolutely everything! But when she tries her hand at being the “best detective,” she ends up an unwilling partner with two people who will change her life forever – Kain Blueriver, the psi-blade-wielding master of the starship Swordbreaker, and Canal, the smart-mouthed holographic image of the ship's computer! Join this unlikely trio on their adventures as they hurtle through space, facing off against intergalactic crime lords, rogue starships, hijackers dressed as chickens… and that's just the tip of the asteroid! Contains the complete 26-episode series!
