THE THIRD: THE GIRL WITH THE BLUE EYE on DVD in April
Anime producer Nozomi Entertainment is pleased to announce THE THIRD: THE GIRL WITH THE BLUE EYE (ザ・サード ～蒼い瞳の少女～, The Third: Aoi Hitomi no Shoujo, 2006) will be released on April 1, 2014.
This new value-priced DVD set will feature the complete 24-episodes anime with English audio, Japanese audio and English-language subtitles. On-disc extras will contain character bios including some with commentary by Megumi Toyoguchi (Honoka), Japanese voice actor interviews, music videos and trailers.
THE THIRD: THE GIRL WITH THE BLUE EYE is based on a popular series of novels and short stories written by Ryou Hoshino and illustrated by Nao Goto.
Spanning 17 volumes, the original light novel series appeared in Japan’s Dragon Magazine in 1999, alongside the serialized novels that inspired the FULL METAL PANIC! and SLYERS anime series. Additionally, the manga adaptation ran in the Monthly Dragon Age Magazine (home to the Black Blood Brothers, Highschool of the Dead and Chrono Crusade manga).
XEBEC (MARTIAN SUCCESSOR NADESICO, FAFNER) produced the animation for the TV series, which ran on Japan’s WOWOW satellite channel from April through October 2006.
THE THIRD: THE GIRL WITH THE BLUE EYE
One Girl. One Tank. No Problem. In a devastated world overrun by monstrous bugs and ravaged by outlaws, there’s only one person to call when you really need a job done right: Honoka. With a sixth sense for danger, sword skills that are second to none, and a smart-aleck A.I. tank by the name of Bogie, she’s ready to tackle any job and solve any problem for her clients. But while crossing the desert one night, she finds a young man alone in the wasteland. It’s the first step of a journey that will challenge even Honoka’s amazing skills to their very limit!
