On March 19th, the two-part OVA NEW HURRICANE POLYMAR (新 破裏拳ポリマー, Shin Hariken Porimaa, 1996) will be released on Region 1 DVD by Discotek Media. The DVD will include both the English dub and the original Japanese audio track with English subtitles.
Straight out of high-tech research center Tokyo Plus arrives Polymar, a new innovation of “Man Machine” system developed by the late Dr. Oregar. Tragically, Dr. Oregar and his efforts are dematerialized as the Catsharks, loyal subjects of Nova, steal this new technology for their own devious plans.
Miraculously chosen as the next Polymar, Takeshi finds himself thrust into the middle of the battleground as he discovers his new role and purpose — to destroy Nova and his followers. He utilizes his karate skills comprised of spinning kicks and backfists with flight formula to defeat the Catsharks, only to have them re-emerge stronger then ever, led by the shrewd Nina. Once she gets Polymar out of the picture, Nova will be free to proceed with his insidious plan. It is a race against time for Takeshi to save the Earth!
NEW HURRICANE POLYMAR is based on Tatsunoko Pro’s anime series HURRICANE POLIMAR (破裏拳ポリマー, Hariken Porimaa, 1974). The DVD contains OVA episodes 1-2.
