While there's still no sign of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex director kenji Kamiyama's sci-fi revival 009: Re Cyborg making its way to North America, a Japanese home video release with English subtitles has been scheduled, while an English dub is in the works for the movie's UK release.
The Japanese Blu-ray is scheduled for May 22nd, with the deluxe edition going for 10290yen($110).
The package includes making of (interview of Kenji Kamiyama, composer Kenji Kawai etc.), press conference, CM, TV spot and much more. It also comes with 3 booklets ("setting off" 56 pages, making of "009 RE:Animation" 112 pages, second making of "009 Re:creation" 35 pages.)
A DVD goes for 5,040 yen ($53.40)
Anime Limited's UK plans include a theatrical release in Q2 2013, then DVD and Blu Ray in Q4 2013.
- We will be dubbing before home video but theatrical will be sub only.
- For 009 RE:CYBORG, we will be working with friends at NYAV Post to create the dub. We'll look at UK options as an option when the circumstances arise though
