Ponycan USA announced earlier this week that they will begin distributing an import edition of the original anime film Garakowa -Restore the World- on April 10, 2016. The film is a collaboration between Pony Canyon and A-1 Pictures. Ponycan US provided a synopsis of the film:
A space inhabited by multiple worlds, countless timelines and a diversity of people, where Dual and Dorothy battle the enemy – viruses encroaching on the world. A world infected by a virus must be deleted. This is the responsibility of Dual and Dorothy. But when the two of them discover a new virus attacking a girl, they save her and quietly wait for her to awaken. Who is she? Where did she come from? Where will she go? When the girl finally awakens, she calls herself “Remo” and has only one thing to say: “I have to return to the flower garden…”
This collector’s edition release features a special box character drawing by original character designer Kantoku, a digipak illustrated by main animator Toshie Kawamura, an 88 page booklet and a CD containing three songs, “Sendan Life”, “Insomnia” and “Hello”. This release will come with an exclusive English-translated version of the booklet. Promotional videos will be included as on-disc extras. The 67-minute film will be featured with 5.1 channel Japanese audio and English subtitles.
Customers who pre-order this release before February 29, 2016, will receive one of four cards illustrated specially by Kantoku. This release has a suggested retail price of $89.98 USD, but is currently available for pre-order for $71.98 USD. Pre-orders can be made here, at RightStuf.com.
