Tokko – The Complete Series in October
Manga have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Tokko – The Complete Series on 1st October 2007 priced at £34.99. Based on the best-selling manga by Tohru Fujisawa (Great Teacher Onizuka, aka GTO) Tokko brings together X Files-style conspiracies, supernatural terror, sexy crime-fighting detectives and regular doses of limb severing swordplay in an apocalyptic tale of demons running amok in modern-day Japan.
Tokko started its run on UK DVD earlier this year and so far 2 volumes have been released (featuring the first 8 episodes of the 13 episode series) but – in a move that mirrors their release of Heat Guy J and more recently Noein - Manga are now releasing a Complete Series box-set with no sign of the remaining individual volume that would have complete the series.
This is great news for fans who’ve yet to start collecting the series as they can purchase the complete series box-set at a low price, but not so good for those who already have the first two volumes.
The Complete Series box-set offers a choice of Japanese and English DD2.0 Stereo and DD5.1 Surround audio with optional English subtitles. Extras are limited to trailers.
