The folks at Happinet are digging into the past with a complete Blu-ray box set for the Kikou Senki Dragonar property. The set is priced at 50,000 yen and is scheduled for a March 2nd, 2022 release. The 48-episode run is being done in full HD working from a remastered video scan from a new 2k print master positive film. Extras include the promo below and a comparison between SD and HD. A booklet with new interviews is planned.

It was directed by Takeyuki Kanda based on the series composition by Fuyunori Gobu with Sunrise handling the animation production. Kenichi Ohnuki handled the character designs for it.

Plot Concept: A.D. 2087 – the United Lunar Empire Giganos wages war on the Earth Federation Military to take control of the planet and establish a “rebirth” of the human race. During an invasion of a colony by Giganos’ forces, three civilian men stumble upon a trio of top-secret Metal Armor units called “Dragonars” and pilot them to combat the enemy forces.
