Glasgow, UK 26 Ocotober, 2014 – Anime Limited, the Glasgow-based anime licensing company and parent company of All the Anime, are pleased to announce the release of the classic Takahiro Omori series Baccano! on blu-ray for the UK.
Hot off the “Roaring Twenties” and headfirst into the uncertain volatility of the “Dirty Thirties,” criminal syndicates stormed into power by bootlegging alcohol during the Prohibition Era – but the most notorious “liquor” of all time is about to set off a violent chain reaction within the mafia underworld!
Each story involves several unrelated plots intersecting and crossing each other as events spiral further and further out of control. Immortal alchemists, mafia-operated speakeasies, and many other elements of pulp fiction are mashed together for a world straight out of the movies.
Anime Limited will release the complete series on blu-ray only. The plan is to release this classic as an Ultimate Edition depending on on what materials are made available. Details on the release and dates are yet to be confirmed.
President of Anime Limited, Andrew Partridge says: “I’m beyond ecstatic to release Baccano! on blu-ray! I’ve been trying to release this since it first came out when I was at Beez but, alas, lost out to Funimation. I am super psyched to be releasing this and will push for as much as I can get to make an Ultimate Edition. Watch this space!”
