28th November – Out This Week
This collector’s Edition features both the original 1988 Streamline English dub and the 2001 Pioneer/Animaze English dub!
Two disaffected orphan teenagers–slight, resentful Tetsuo and confident, breezy Kanada–run with a biker gang, but trouble grows when Tetsuo start to resent the way Kanada always has to rescue him. Meanwhile, a group of scientists, military men and politicians wonder what to do with a collection of withered children who possess enormous psychic powers, especially the mysterious, rarely seen Akira, whose awakening might well have caused the end of the old world. Tetsuo is visited by the children, who trigger the growth of psychic and physical powers that might make him a superman or a super-monster.

The latest adventure kicks off with a battle between Fire Fist Ace and the dastardly Blackbeard. Flames collide as these heavyweights lay waste to an entire island. When the dust settles, the scene shifts back to the Straw Hats who find themselves trapped in frigid waters – and hunted by a family of bounty hunters.
After their icy adversaries steal the Straw Hats’ flag, it’s all hands on deck to recover the precious symbol of their pirate pride! Later, while drifting through haunted waters, the Straw Hats encounter a walking, talking skeleton. Luffy quickly befriends the newcomer, but the rest of his mates want nothing to do with this perverted bag of bones. Before the mystery of the seagoing skeleton can be deciphered, the Straw Hats find themselves trapped within the terrifying walls of Thriller Bark!
