Frontier Works is digging back into their past a bit for a release that they can get on Blu-ray even if they don’t have high definition materials for it. An SDBD release was previously scheduled for the Sakigake!! Otokojuku series from 1988 and now we’ve got a look at a really slick looking package for it. The thirty-four episode series is set for a December 21st, 2018 release priced at 27,000 yen with a high-quality 480i encode using the Blu-ray format. It looks like it’s being done as two discs with a booklet included as the main extra.
The set also includes the movie that came out in 1988.
Plot Concept: Otokojuku – a private school for juvenile delinquents that were previously expelled from normal schools. At this school, Japanese chivalry is taught through feudal and military fundamentals. Similar to an action film, the classes are overwhelmed by violence. Only those who survive it become true men.
