is finally out now on both DVD
. This dystopian sci-fi action series takes place in a future where the world is plagued by a virus known as Gastrea.
The Gastrea virus spreads like wildfire, causing each infected host to rapidly mutate, gaining new powers and abilities with every stage of development, even while they continue to attack, kill and infect multiple new hosts. Unable to fight a pandemic enemy that turns defenders into adversaries, the shocked remnants of the human race are forced to retreat into cities surrounded by giant monoliths made of Varanium, one of the few materials that can stop the Gastrea.
Now mankind's last hope lies in the Cursed Children: young girls infected with the virus who have managed to retain a hold on their humanity. Paired with a partner, they alone have the strength to take on a Gastrea in one-on-one combat. But the very thing that gives them power is a ticking time bomb, so even as they protect humanity, they are also feared and shunned. Are they Girls? Monsters? Or Mankind's Ultimate Salvation?
The series is based on a light novel of the same name written by Shiden Kanzaki. The first volume of the light novel, and the first volume of the manga adaptation, are already available in English, so the physical release of the anime should be a welcome addition to fans’ collections.
