Yukikaze Blu-Ray Special Edition

Bandai Visual USA continues to surprise me, and I couldn't be more ecstatic. Adding to their high-def anime line-up, Bandai brings us the GONZO smash hit action five-part OVA "Yukikaze" in a Blu-ray Disc Box set with deluxe features, including never before seen footage.

Yukikaze is a masterfully told science fiction tale combined with breathtaking aerial animation that will keep you on the edge of your seats! Yukikaze tells the story of Rei Fukai, a young man who trusts his advanced armed tactical reconnaissance plane, Yukikaze, more than he does his fellow man. He comes into contact with the alien force known as JAM while gathering military data on board his beloved aircraft. JAM, showing interest in Rei and Yukikaze, begins to wage fierce battles against mankind with every means conceivable. Before long, JAM begins to launch an all out attack upon the Fairy Air Force!

Based on the press release, the set with come with 3 discs, Japanese and English Language with Optional Japanese and English subtitles. Bonus features include: 6-minute Yukikaze Experimental Movie, 28-minute feature 'Aircrafts in Yukikaze from pilot's eyes,' 20-page full color SAF Flight Manual, and exclusively designed box. Retailed at $149.99, this set is due for a super early US release April 8, 2008. Hopefully, the set will look just as sweet at the Japanese box set just recently released.
