Maiden Japan Licenses Masamune Shirow's "Black Magic M-66" Anime

1987 OVA has the distinction of being the only anime "Ghost in the Shell" creator actively worked on

From Ghost in the Shell to Real Drive, Masamune Shirow's name is on plenty of anime, but the adaptation of his Black Magic M-66 has the distinction of being the only anime that he actively worked on. That 1987 OVA, co-directed by Hiroyuki Kitakubo (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure OVA) has now been rescue licensed by Maiden Japan.

 

Maiden Japan will be distributing Black Magic M-66 in conjunction with home video distributor Section23  on English subtitled DVD July 9th and in digital formats.


From Maiden Japan's description:

When two malfunctioning combat androids are accidentally unleashed on a “Terminate at All Costs” mission against the unsuspecting granddaughter of their creator, an entire city becomes the battleground and not even the military may be able to stop them!  The girl’s only hope: Sybil, a freelance journalist who’s out to get the scoop of her life, if she can somehow keep both herself and her subject alive long enough to file a report.  But first, she has to remember to put her clothes on!  It’s a tour de force of violence and mayhem on an epic scale as two damsels in distress and two deranged battle robots face off, girl vs. mecha style, in the all-time anime classic: BLACK MAGIC M-66!
