Taboo TattooThe summer 2016 anime series Taboo Tattoo is getting its home video releases handled by Avex Pictures and they’ve set the schedule for it recently. With the first release coming out in a couple of weeks, the cover artwork has now arrived ahead of the September 30th, 2016 release. The twelve episode series is getting a six-volume release plan where they’re listed as limited editions. The show is getting a Blu-ray only release where they’re priced at 7,344 yen each. Details are slim at the moment as we only know that they’re all coming with booklets and a CD of some sort to be determined.

With eleven volumes of the original manga released in Japan at the time of broadcast, the show was directed by Takashi Watanabe based on the series composition and scripts by Mayori Sekijima. Shinya Hasegawa worked on the character designs and the series was animated by J.C. Staff.

The announced cast includes Makoto Furukawa as Justice Akatsuka, Mikako Komatsu as Bluesy=Fluesy, Chika Anzai as Touko Ichinose, Akari Kito as Aryabhata, Shiori Izawa as Iltutmish, Kenjirou Tsuda as R. R. Lurker, Eri Kitamura as Lisa Lovelock, Hitomi Nabatame as Kar Shekar, Toshiyuki Morikawa as Brad Blackstone, Akari Kito as Aryabhata, Sho Hayami as Professor Wiseman and Tesshô Genda as Colonel Sanders.

The opening theme is “Belief” by May’n while the ending theme is “Egoistic Emotion” by TRIGGER.

Plot concept: Seigi, a martial arts trained middle schooler, often feels driven to protect the weaker people around him. One day, he defends a homeless man against some punks, and the man gives him a strange tattoo on his palm in return. The tattoo is a secret weapon produced in the arms race between America and the Serinistan Kingdom.

Seigi finds himself in over his head when a powerful girl, using the same secret weapon, violently pursues him in order to retrieve it. His skill at martial arts may not be enough to keep him alive, but will he be able to learn how to trigger the power of his tattoo in time?
