LOST UNIVERSE DVD Available July 1st
Anime producer Nozomi Entertainment is pleased to announce that LOST UNIVERSE (ロスト・ユニバース, Rosuto Yunibaasu, 1998) will be available on July 1, 2014.
This new value-priced DVD set will feature the complete 26-episode series with English audio, Japanese audio, English-language subtitles and English on-screen translations. On-disc extras will include character bios and liner notes.
LOST UNIVERSE was created by the team behind the popular Slayers anime. The anime is based upon novels by Hajime Kanzaka (Slayers), directed by Takashi Watanabe (SLAYERS, SLAYERS NEXT, SHAKUGAN NO SHANA) and features character designs by Naomi Miyata (SLAYERS, SLAYERS NEXT). Additionally, the series was recognized with the “Best Individual Episode” award by the Japanese magazine Animage following its initial TV Tokyo broadcast.
Millie Nocturne has one great goal in her life: to be the best in the universe… at absolutely everything. But when she tries her hand at being the best detective, she ends up an unwilling partner to two people who will change her life forever — Kain Blueriver, the psi-blade-wielding master of the starship Swordbreaker, and Canal, the smart-mouthed holographic image of the ship’s computer!
These are the adventures of this unlikely trio as they hurtle through space, facing off against intergalactic crime lords, rogue starships, hijackers dressed as chickens… and that’s just the tip of the asteroid!
