NEW JANUARY 5TH RELEASES FROM MEDIA BLASTERS!
(Belleville, New Jersey) 2020 has been a unique, stressful and volatile year to say the least. With most people trying to quarantine, home entertainment has become a highly prized commodity and physical media sales have surged. To meet the demand for more quality content, Media Blasters Inc. has increased its year-end output and is pleased to announce the December 15th arrival of SHRINE OF THE MORNING MIST, DEVILMAN, Roberta Findlay’s BLOOD SISTERS and Kitty Media’s FIRST LOVE.
JUNGLE DE IKOU! for the first time on blu-ray as well as a welcome blu-ray/DVD reissue of the sci-fi anime epic, KITE LIBERATOR. The live-action sci-fi actioner ZEIRAM 2 also makes its premiere on blu-ray and finally returns to DVD courtesy of the Tokyo Shock label while Kitty Media’s adults only fare, MOTHER-IN-LOVE, seduces its way onto blu-ray and DVD for the very first time!
SHRINE OF THE MORNING MIST: COMPLETE COLLECTION (ASAGIRI NO MIKO)
Returns to DVD and debuts in HD on blu-ray! Ever since childhood, Tadahiro had two different-colored eyes- one brown and one hazel. With the power to view the spirit world with his left eye, Tadahiro has become a walking target for the masked sorcerer Ayatachi Michimune and his band of demons. To combat the demons and save Tadahiro, Yuzu Hieda, a Shinto priestess in training, recruits four girls from her high school priestess club to undergo strenuous training to defeat the demons and rescue Tadahiro from a horrible fate! Set in the real-life city of Miyoshi, Hiroshima where there is a mysterious abundance of mist and based on actual folklore from an ancient scroll! 26 episodes!
Best friends Akira and Ryo (played by real life twins Hisato and Yusuke Izaki) are your average high school students, that is, until they learn that Ryo’s scientist father stationed in Antarctica has accidentally unleashed a horde of demons upon the earth! The demons spread like a virus throughout the world, possessing ordinary people and turning them violently against each other. (It sounds all too familiar in 2020!) When Akira becomes possessed, he becomes the one and only Devilman, an all-powerful demonic entity who somehow retains his humanity. It’s up to Devilman to wage cosmic war against the destructive demons, now led by Ryo who possesses equally opposing evil super powers! Prepare for an apocalyptic showdown that will shake the very heavens above! Based on the ever popular manga by Go Nagai (Cutie Honey & Kekko Kamen).
Robert Findlay’s BLOOD SISTERS–
Eight sexy sorority sisters attempt to brave the night in an old abandoned haunted brothel as part of their initiation ceremony. Unbeknownst to them, their boyfriends have rigged the creepy manor to scare the living daylights out of the ladies! They shouldn’t have bothered since the old house seems to have an evil mind of its own and a much more sinister agenda! Add a real-life escaped psycho killer prowling the vicinity and our heroines now face a triple-threat obstacle course of practical jokes, homicidal rampage and the possessed house’s own vengeful spirits! From the fearless female filmmaker Roberta Findlay (TENEMENT, SNUFF) An 80’s slasher gem making its blu-ray premiere in a fresh 4K scan!
From Kitty Media comes three (absolutely not for children!) intimate and honest stories that dramatically depict three different examples of innocent first-time romantic love. Based on the manga by Osuzu Akiomi. KASUMI: Ani is concerned with his troubled step-sister Kasumi who appears disheveled and severely introverted. When his girlfriend cancels a restaurant reservation, Ani invites Kasumi to dinner in an attempt to get her out of the house in the hopes of alleviating her deep depression. Surprisingly, they begin to develop and express deep feelings for one another. CHINATSU: Satoshi can’t understand why Chinatsu always pouts and never seems to find fun and enjoyment in their new relationship. With the help of her little sister, Satoshi is determined to make Chinatsu crack a smile. MAKOTO: Makoto and Kouichi are distant cousins and childhood friends who had a falling out in the past. Reunited after many years, Kouichi is determined to see if the voluptuous Makoto still holds a grudge?
