Anchor Bay Ent. is bringing the Kids’ WB! Saturday morning series Eon Kid to DVD for the first time on Aug. 12. Eon Kid: Season One, Volume One will feature the first five episodes of the series, offering more than 100 minutes of action and adventure from a show that has garnered strong ratings since launching in September of 2007.
Eon Kid is produced by Manga Ent. And is set in a futuristic world where Marty, an enterprising 11-year-old who deals in scrap robot parts, stumbles upon an ancient Iron Fist. Unexpectedly, the Fist comes to life and attaches itself to Marty’s arm, endowing him with unknown fighting powers and putting him at the heart of a centuries-old struggle between good and evil. Marty’s hero’s journey takes him into a world of bounty hunters, battle-bots, legendary warriors and The General’s dark forces.
Installments included in the first DVD release are ‘The Legendary Fist,’ ‘The Heir to the Fist,’ ‘The Journey Begins,’ ‘Strength Isn’t Everything,’ and Ally’s Secret. Bonus features will include a photo gallery, an extended trailer and a downloadable mini poster. The release will carry a suggested retail price of $16.98.
