The Anime Classic Moribito FINALLY Comes to Blu-ray

03

Don’t kick yourself if you haven’t heard of Moribito.  It was kind of a sleeper hit with a decent run on Toonami back in the day.  Also, if you’re feeling a little bit of deja vu, that’s true too.   VIZ Media license-rescued this beauty and is releasing it on Blu-ray in one complete set starting today.   Check out their listing on Amazon, by clicking the image below.

( or here http://amzn.to/1tQZlyk)

What’s nice about this release is that on top of being all in one piece the first build of the set comes with a limited 0-card.   In anime-speak  its that special cover in that thicker cardstock and protects the Blu-ray case.  Who doesn’t hate dinged Blu-ray cases, right?

And since its a re-release we have all the old extras from the original Media Blasters release, so if you missed out on it the first time, pick it up now and it won’t be interlaced PLUS it now has real stereo sound!

Upon returning to the village, the young shinobi are praised by their families for completing a dangerous mission. Reminded of how alone he is, Naruto begins to wonder what it’s like to have parents, when a strange masked figure appears before him – the same masked shinobi responsible for the death of his parents!
