This week's Anime Blu-ray release is Freedom - Collectors Edition, which is being brought to us in the UK by Manga Entertainment UK.
Originally Freedom was licensed by Beez Entertainment in the UK and a very discreet Blu-ray boxset was released for a relatively high price, well now that Manga Entertainment UK own's the license they have re-released the set at half the cost.
Unlike previous Blu-ray releases this particular set contains not only the Blu-ray but it also contains the DVD Version of this particular series, making it the first Double Play edition of a TV Series released by Manga Entertainment UK
The Blu-ray contains the complete series (all 7 episodes) and its special features, which last up to an hour themselves, as well as two DVDs (one contains the series, the other contains the special features) - additionally four postcards inpsired by the film are also included in this Collectors Edition.
Freedom: Collectors Edition > £24.99 (Amazon UK / Play UK) £25.99 (HMV UK)
Plot: In the year 2041, mankind created their first space colony on the moon. But after a freak cataclysm devastated human civilisation on Earth, the republic of the moon built a domed megalopolis known as Eden. Now in the year 2267, a boy called Takeru spends his time engaging in hover-craft races against rival street gangs, unaware that he is about to embark in the journey of unearthing Eden's origin.
