Mamoru Oshii’s Assault Girls will attack on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in June

Fans of heavily armed and armored girls rejoice! Geneon Entertainment Japan has announced to release Assault Girls, Mamoru Oshii’s quasi-sequel to Avalon on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on June 23, 2010 in standard and special collector’s editions. The latter will include a bonus disc with a bunch of promotion material, the ‘prequels’ to Assault Girls, Assault Girl (Oshii’s segment for True Female Tachigui: The Amazing Lives of the Fast Food Grifters, click here to watch) and Assault Girl 2 (taken from the Kiru ~ KILL omnibus), a 92-page storyboard script written by Oshii and an enhanced booklet (16 pages instead of just four).
None of these editions will include English subtitles, but according to some theatrical reviews the films dialogues are all in Eng(l/r)ish anyway. Hopefully our sweet girls had access to better vocal coaches than those cowboys in Takashi Miike’s Sukiyaki Western Django;)

    Not including english subtitles in any film is just plain stupid… it limits accessability. What is one of the most important things for a film? Well, for it to be able to be seen by as many people as possible…*sigh*

    EngRish is just plain annoying, will have some people give up on it and bar non-native speakers who might understand a fair bit of english but not well enough to guess-decode engrish.
