Bandai Visual will be releasing Kon Satoshi’s much beloved anime Millennium Actress on blu-ray come February 21st 2014. The release looks to be a very bare bones edition with nothing on the side of supplements but an audio commentary and the usual theatrical trailers and TV spots. Check out the official cover art below.
While the improvement in video quality of the film is definitely welcomed, the package is definitely lacklustre when compared to the special edition dvd release of the film, which comes with a storyboard and postcard book, a 2nd “Making Of” supplements disc, all housed in a gorgeously designed black box.
The release of Millennium Actress on blu-ray completes Kon Satoshi’s line up of films on high definition, including his other works Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers, Paprika and Paranoid Agent. Sadly, the Dream Machine will probably never see the light of day.
Folks who are fans of Millenium Actress should definitely check out the art of book.
