One series that fell through the cracks a bit for awhile in terms of a home video release was the 2015 series Concrete Revolutio. That was rectified recently with Funimation setting an October 23rd, 2018 release for it as a DVD/BD combo that will be bilingual – including having the songs dubbed for it. We now have our first trailer for it as well! The 24-episode series will be spread across four discs for both formats and will include a digital copy. It’s also set for region 1, 2, and 4 on DVD and region A and B for Blu-ray, giving them some room to really sell it. The set is priced at $84.98 since it’s a two-cour release up front.
The series was directed by Seiji Mizushima and is based on the story by Shou Aikawa with Yoshiyuki Ito handling the character designs and serving as the animation director. Bones produced the animation. The cast includes Kaito Ishikawa as Jirō Hitoyoshi, Sumire Uesaka as Kikko Hoshino, Aki Toyosaki as Emi Kino, Eriko Nakamura as Fuurouta, Tokuyoshi Kawashima as Hyōma Yoshimura, Tetsuo Kanao as Daishi Akita and Kenichi Suzumura as Raito Shiba.
The English dub was directed by Christopher Bevins and the cast includes Anastasia Munoz as Emi Kino, Greg Ayres as Jiro Hitoyoshi, Jad Saxton as Kikko Hoshino, Alex Organ as Yoshiaki Satomi, Alison Viktorin as Fuurouta, Christopher Bevins as Hyouma Yoshimura, David Wald as Ullr, Ian Sinclair as Raito Shiba, Jason Douglas as Magotake Hitoyoshi, and Mark Stoddard as Daishi Akita.
Plot concept: The stage is set in “another Japan” as a banquet of diverse superhumans unfolds…
In an imaginary “age of gods” about 20 years after the war, Japan has grown and developed by leaps and bounds. What if all the superhumans ever written about in fictional stories existed at the same time? Superhumans who came into existence through different circumstances, and who are special in different ways — Titans from outer space, lifeforms from a mystical world, phantoms and goblins from ancient times, cyborgs created by scientists, relics that rose out of the ruins of ancient civilizations, and the list goes on. One segment of these superhumans makes no secret of their existence and has gained popularity in society. Others cloak their identities and fight in secrecy.
There are enemies of superhumans as well, organizations that operate in the shadows. The Japanese government has taken many measures to secure peace and order. One is the establishment of an organization under the Ministry of Health and Welfare — the Overpopulation Research Laboratory, a.k.a. the Superhuman Bureau. Their mission is to identify and approach superhumans, then oversee and safeguard them. One member of the Superhuman Bureau, Jiro Hitoyoshi, is the protagonist of this series.
