Late Nineties science fiction anime features animation by Studio Deen
Eat-Man, a 1997 - 1998 science fiction TV anime based on the manga of the same name by Akihito Yoshitomi, is coming to Japanese home video with a Bluray boxed set that collects both Eat-Man and its sequel series, Eat-Man `98. The series revolves around Bolt Crank, a mercenary capable of ingesting anything and then summoning up a copy of whatever he has swallowed.
Eat-Man and Eat-Man `98 both feature animation by Studio Deen. The former was directed by Koichi Mashimo, while the latter was directed by Toshifumi Kawase. Both series were released on DVD in North America by the now-defunct Bandai Entertainment. The Eat-Man manga was released in English by Viz.
The Eat-Man Bluray boxed set features all 24 episodes of the 2 series as well as a commemorative booklet and an original comic drawn by Akihito Yoshitomi. The set will be released in Japan on November 06, 2015, by NBC Universal Entertainment Japan. It retails for 24,800 yen ($198.50 US) plus tax.
