Manga Box Sets in September
Manga have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of two DVD box sets for September 2006.
Arriving on the 4th September is a Ghost in the Shell Movie Double Bill set priced at £19.99. Originally released as a limited edition double pack in February, fans of the hugely popular films by Mamoru Oshii can now own both the original Ghost In The Shell feature length anime, and the long awaited and critically acclaimed sequel in a stunning 3-disc specially designed double pack.
Then a few weeks later on 25th September there is the Manga Essentials box set, also priced at £19.99. For the first time ever the three pivotal, must-see anime films that launched Manga Entertainment in the West and inspired a generation of movie fans have been brought together in a deluxe, specially priced, 5-disc box set.
Included in the set are the double-disc editions of Katsuhiro Otomo’s groundbreaking Akira, writer-director Yoshiaki Kawajiri's adult ninja fantasy anime Ninja Scroll and the single-disc special edition release of Mamoru Oshii’s Ghost in the Shell, the film that has influenced numerous recent science fiction feature films.
