One of those “lost series” for North American fans where it got little attention in general and never licensed, Bandai Visual has now set a Japanese home video release plan for Tactical Roar. The thirteen episode series is getting a new Blu-ray box set on December 24th, 2015 priced at 15,000 yen. The release has 150 minutes worth of extras as Bandai calculates it with seven picture dramas, three video commentaries, and three tactical commentaries. Also included are the clean opening and closing, assault report, promotional footage and the SDF interview. All of the audio commentaries from the DVD releases are being included as well. The show is being produced across three Blu-ray discs.
The series was directed by Yoshitaka Fujimoto based on the composition by Kazuho Hyodo. It featured character designs by Takeshi Itou and was animated at Actas.
Plot concept: In the near future the world’s climate shifted creating in the Western Pacific a perpetual super cyclone: the Grand Roar that altered the earth, flooding most countries. Shipping and navigation became important to nations and following the appearance of ocean pirates, necessitated companies to hire escort cruisers to safeguard their investments. Hyousuke Nagimiya is a system engineer that was commissioned to upgrade the Pascal Magi manned by an entire crew of women with its captain, Misaki Nanaha. Together the crew strives to prove themselves to their detractors that they are no mere ‘Alice Brand’. Yet as they go about their mission a larger global conspiracy seems to be working behind the scenes to take advantage of this new world order.
