Right Stuf bringing us El Hazard at the end of September


Rarely do you see older anime brought to the forefront anymore. The folks over at Right Stuf seem to be one of the few bringing us actively older titles that have faded from the public consciousness by now. Their latest announcement? That they've licensed El Hazard: The Wanderers.

This was an old Geneon title that they decided to rescue, so I'm anxious to see how something like this performs in the market. Personally, I've never gotten to see El Hazard, so I'm just as new to this as many of you. Checking out the totally 90s trailer that Right Stuf has on their website, I must say I have a strange urge to watch it.

The box set for the show is set to be released on September 7th, and if you pre-order it now, it'll only be $30 for you, which isn't a bad deal at all for an entire season of anime. So, what do you say? Will you give it a shot. Full press release after the jump for all those interested.

GRIMES, IA, May 18, 2010 – Anime producer and distributor Right Stuf, Inc. and its Nozomi Entertainment division are pleased to announce the license for the EL-HAZARD: THE WANDERERS television series.

The 26-episode series will be released in one complete set on September 7, 2010. The EL-HAZARD: THE WANDERERS DVD Collection will feature Japanese and English-language audio options, English subtitles, and on-disc extras. It will be housed in a single, litebox-style keepcase.

This alternate-universe reimagining of the El-Hazard franchise was produced by AIC, the studio behind fan-favorite series including Tenchi Muyo!, Battle Athletes and the anime adaptations of Ah! My Goddess, and it features direction by Katsuhito Akiyama (Dual!, Pumpkin Scissors) and character designs by Kazuto Nakazawa (House of Five Leaves, Samurai Champloo, Starship Girl Yamamoto Yohko).

Makoto always upstages Jinnai without trying, which just aggravates the delusional rivalry that Jinnai has concocted within his own mind. However, when Jinnai attempts to sabotage Makoto's newest invention, the machine creates a dimensional rift and throws Makoto, Jinnai, and several others from their school into a strange, new world that is filled with amazing creatures, beautiful sights, and dangerous enemies. If they ever want to get home, it's going to take wits, courage, and a lot of luck! Contains the complete 26-episode series!
