FUNimation to release first Blu-ray title

MUMBAI: At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International, FUNimation Entertainment, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Navarre Corporation, will announce that it is bringing the next generation entertainment to anime fans and will release its first high-definition home entertainment product on Blu-ray disc.



Dragon Ball Z blasts onto Blu-ray with two Broly movies: Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan and Broly: Second Coming, two of the largest selling DBZ movies of all time.



“After seeing demos of each next generation platform, it was clear that the Blu-ray platform was ideal for FUNimation. The capabilities of the Blu-ray technology allows our fans to enjoy their favorite FUNimation titles like never before,” said FUNimation Entertainment senior vice-president of sales and operations Ward Thomas.



These two movies have been remastered in high-definition, digitally restored and enhanced with an all-new 5.1 surround sound mix. The video has been transferred directly from the original 35mm Japanese film creating a higher visual quality to match the dynamic action seen in the series and movies. All the special features on the disc are in full 1920 x 1080p HD, including a featurette about the restoration, remastering and high definition processes called “Dragon Ball Z: A New Look.”



Dragon Ball Z Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan and Broly: Second Coming (TVPG) hit shelves November 13, 2007.



After Dragon Ball Z Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan and Broly: Second Coming, FUNimation Entertainment will start releasing high definition versions of some of its most popular catalog titles in the US.
