ADV Films announced plans to release Director Rintaro’s (Metropolis, Captain Harlock) animated chiller Doomed Megalopolis for the first time on DVD.
Set in 1923, Doomed Megalopolis weaves actual history with the supernatural, revisiting a devastating earthquake that destroyed much of Tokyo to tell a classic tale of good vs. evil.
Produced by Japan’s Madhouse Studios (Ninja Scroll), this English-language adaptation by Carl Macek (Robotech, Lady Death) is constructed as a four-part miniseries. A two-disc set will contain all four parts: The Haunting of Tokyo, The Fall of Tokyo, The Gods of Tokyo and The Battle for Tokyo.
Doomed Megalopolis is rated 17+ for adult content. Pricing, release date and other details are yet to be announced.
