REDLINE ab Oktober in Deutschland auf DVD und Blu-ray Disc

This article is about the German DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Takeshi Koike’s REDLINE Anime. Because it won’t include English subtitles or audio the full article is only available in German. Manga Entertainment UK will release two (Standard and Double Play) English friendly Blu-ray Disc versions on November 14th.

Da habe ich vor einiger Zeit so oft von Studio Madhouses Racing Anime Redline berichtet und dann vergesse ich doch glatt hier auch mal etwas über die kommende deutsche Veröffentlichung zu schreiben.
Kaze wird “das krasseste Rennen des Universums” ( :fall: ) von Regisseur Takeshi Koike nämlich am 28. Oktober hierzulande auf Blu-ray Disc (und DVD) auf den Markt bringen. Wie so oft stattet Kaze seine Veröffentlichungen europaweit gleich aus, weshalb die BD im Amaray neben dem japanischen Originalton auch eine deutsche, französische und italienische Tonspur enthält. Für Leseratten gibt es Untertitel auf Deutsch, Französisch, Niederländisch, Italienisch und Polnisch.
Wer eine schönere Verpackung möchte, muss entweder bis zum November auf die UK Double Play Veröffentlichung von Manga Entertainment warten oder tiefer in der Tasche grabebn und zur englisch untertitelten japanischen Limited Edition greifen. Die liegt übrigens seit ca. einer Woche aufgrund akutem Zeitmangel und noch nicht aufgebauter Heimkinoanlage noch jungfräulich verpackt irgendwo in meiner neuen Wohnung herum… :sad:

REDLINE: English-friendly Japan DVD & Blu-ray Disc in August

Fans of high octane racing rejoice! TC Entertainment announced to release Takeshi Koike’s Studio Madhouse racing anime REDLINE on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in Japan with English subtitles on August 10th.
Both versions will be available in a regular and Collector’s edition. While the regular editions come in a standard amaray package, the more expensive editions will be packed in a digibook plus sleeve with a bonus SD DVD with several extra material and a never released bonus film (without English subtitles).

Those of you who don’t want to pay the premium Japanese prices just have to wait until September 12th when Manga Entertainment UK plans to release the film on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. US releases have also been announced, but so far without a proper release date.

AKIRA: UK Blu-ray Disc/DVD Combi Steelbook [Update]

Manga Entertainment UK just tweeted a high resolution product shot for the UK Blu-ray Disc release of Katsuhiro Otomo’s AKIRA.
The BD/DVD combi will hit the shelves in a nice steelbook package (probably because the Brits had to wait so long for their ‘own’ release) for a limited time on June 27th. I guess the BD itself will be the same as the one in the amazing US and Japanese release that I told you about maaaany times before…

I Saw The Devil: Ab April auf Blu-ray Disc und DVD

Splendid Entertainment will release Kim Ji-Woon’s (A Tale of Two Sisters, A Bittersweet Life, The Good, the Bad, the Weird) Thriller I Saw The Devil (악마를 보았다 ) starring Choi Min-Sik and Lee Byung-Hun (A Bittersweet Life) on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in Germany on April 15th. These releases won’t have English subtitles, so if you don’t understand German I’m afraid you’ll have to wait for an International release…which haven’t been announced yet.


Reign of Assassins: HK DVD and Blu-ray Disc in November

Some time ago I decided not to report every upcoming home video release of films I mention on this site, but I think most of you (who don’t regularly check the Asian Blu-ray Guide) might be interested in this.
YesAsia just listed the Hong Kong DVD and Blu-ray Disc of John Woo’s Reign of Assassins for November 25th. Just as expected from Mega Star, both versions will include English subtitles. YesAsia states that the Blu-ray Disc will be locked to Region A, but knowing Mega Star there’s a good chance that this might be region free after all.
[Thanks to Supavince for the heads up!]
