MVM will be releasing Dororo Blue-Rey edition on Monday, January 17th. There are two anime adaptations of Dororo, a fantasy manga penned by Osamu Tezuka, while the second version that premiered in 2019 will get its Blue-Rey copy. The famous manga was first adapted into an anime series in 1969 in a black and white feature, while the second adaptation premiered on Tokyo MX in January 2019.
Three years later, from the official date of the anime release, Dororo will get its home edition on Blue-Rey. In case you haven’t watched Dororo, the story is set in a period of the warring states in Japan, where one of the state lords decides to give demons what they want in return for power and prosperity. Demons choose his unborn son, and he gives him away with no remorse. The child survives to be later named Hyakkimaru – he grew up without major body parts, wearing prosthetic limbs and body parts instead.
Hyakkimaru meets a child thief, Dororo, who then follows him in his mission to get his body parts back by destroying demons. The plot becomes more complex as this 24-part series progresses. In case you didn’t watch Dororo, we warmly recommend it as the series poses as an amazing fantasy drama with demonic forces and supernatural creatures. Fight scenes are also supreme.
In the meanwhile, Anime Limited is releasing a Blue-Rey collection of Code Geass with four feature films, where the first three movies are retelling the story told in the anime series. The fourth installation in the franchise is an entirely new story that hasn’t been featured in the anime series, titled Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;ssurection.
The Blue-Rey box collection will contain Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion I – Initiation, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion II – Transgression, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion III – Glorification, and Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;ssurection.
