Anime Limited to release Sword of the Stranger on home video


Anime Limited to release Sword of the Stranger on home video

Posted 17/02/2017


Remember Sword of the Stranger? If you don't, then fear not, as after a previous UK release from the now-defunt Beez Entertainment this 2007 film Studio BONES will be returning to the UK on home video this year.

The film's return comes via Anime Limited, who are planning a DVD/Blu-ray Collector's Edition of the movie, scheduled for release on the 5th of June 2017.

Here's the brief synopsis for the film:

Hunted by the Mings from China, young Kotaro and his dog meet a nameless samurai (“Nanashi”) who is constantly being haunted by dreams of the past which lead him to seal his sword. Among the Mings is a fiercesome Western fighter named Rarou, who desires only to find a worthy opponent.

When both groups clash with a Sengoku-era feudal lord, a proud general, and monks torn between faith and survival, the reason behind the Mings’ pursuit tests the bond between Kotaro and Nanashi.

We rated the film a 9/10 from its previous 2009 home video release, and also talked to director Masahiro Ando and co-founder of Studio Bones Masahiko Minami about the film to boot.
