Section23 Films has announced a delay for the 14-disc Gatchaman: Complete Collection Blu-ray set, pushing the series' release back from October 29th to December 10th. The anime distributor also detailed the set, which features a variety of bonus content including commentaries, interviews and more.
Synopsis: Using amazing weapons powered by super-science, the international terrorist organization known as Galactor is out to steal all of Earth's resources for itself and its inhuman masters. Mankind's only hope? The International Science Organization and their elite strike force, the Science Ninja Team! But these five young heroes will have their work cut out for them as they take on the seemingly impossible task of defeating Galactor's horrific arsenal of mechanized weapons of mass destruction and endless armies of henchmen. Can costumed commandos Ken the Eagle, Joe the Condor, Jun the Swallow, Jinpei the Sparrow and Ryu the Owl really overcome such overwhelming odds? Utilizing the incredible technology and fighting techniques created by Dr. Nambu, and with the mighty ship the God Phoenix at their command, they just might.
The Blu-ray release of Gatchaman features series episodes 1-105, previously unreleased OVA episodes 1-3, 1080p video, lossless English and Japanese audio, and English subtitles. Supplements include:
I pre-ordered a copy on Amazon about two months ago. Amazon has it priced at $129. Since then I've seen it priced as low as $97 for the blu-ray set on other websites. I'm surprised that Amazon has not lowered the price as of yet. I may have to order it elsewhere.
