Maiden Japan added the license for the Gunparade March anime series that was previously released by Media Blasters in North America and we’re getting closer to its release. With that narrowing in we now have the finalized artwork and packaging for the DVD-only set. It’s scheduled for a September 18th, 2018 debut priced at $49.98 and will be a bilingual release using the previously created dub.
Extras for the set include the Japanese Promos, Clean Opening Animation, and the Clean Closing Animation.
Plot Concept: In 1945, the alien invasion ended World War II and united humanity against a common enemy. Now, more than 50 years later and after countless deaths, a new group of teenagers has been drafted to train as pilots of the advanced combat mecha known as Humanoid Walking Tanks (HWTs). For Atsushi Hayami and the rest of Unit 5121, the odds of living to see their twenties now depends on the hardened battle steel of their armor, the courage and strength of their comrades in arms and the tactics of superior officers who see them as game pieces to be played against the Phantom Beasts. Friendships and love blossom against a battle-torn landscape, and every day is another desperate struggle to survive a seemingly endless war in GUNPARADE MARCH!
