Even though the legendary movie "Tekkon Kinkreet" was released on 2006, it is only this year that its Blu-ray DVD will go on sale. Aniplex will be releasing the "Tekkon Kinkreet" Blu-ray disc on April 23, 2014. The disc will set fans back by 5,184 yen.
On top of the main disc, the first press limited edition will also include a special booklet and a sleeve. As the bonus footage, the movie disc will include the same trailer that was also included in the regular edition DVD.
Based on the manga of the same title by Matsumoto Taiyo, and directed by the Matrix series' Michael Arias, the movie "Tekkon Kinkreet" gained much attention for its art as well as its stellar voice cast starring Arashi's Ninomiya Kazunari and actress Aoi Yu.
The story is set in Treasure Town, a place full of Yakuza. Two boys, Black and White, freely roam its streets and support each other. One day, in the name of rebuilding, the town is sent into a state of uneasiness. An invisible construction project called "The Children's Castle", three assassins, and a mysterious man called "Snake" disturbs the short-lived peace in Treasure Town. White was targeted by the assassins and taken into custody. Meanwhile, Black, who has never been away from White's side, starts his rampage...
On a separate note, Matsumoto Taiyo's manga "Ping Pong" will be made into an anime to be aired during Fuji TV's "noitaminA" slot starting in April.
