Released exclusively online as a Netflix Original in 2017, it is now coming to DVD, Blu-ray and digital download in the UK and Ireland on 28th May and remaining territories later this year.

“We are very excited to be partnering with the incredibly talented team at Polygon Pictures and our friends at Dybex on this multi-territory release,” says Jerome Mazandarani, COO of Manga Entertainment. “It’s a ground-breaking piece of animation that redefines what anime can be and we’re very proud to be bringing it to home entertainment.”

Overseen by Manga Entertainment, the film is also showing in competition this month at ANIMA Festival, Brussels in the Feature Films category.

The release will shortly be available for pre-order on the Manga Entertainment webshop, Amazon.co.uk, HMV and other online retailers.

Synopsis:
In the distant technological future, civilization has reached its ultimate Net-based form. An “infection” in the past caused the automated systems to spiral out of control, resulting in a multi-leveled city structure that replicates itself infinitely in all directions. Now humanity has lost access to the city’s controls and is hunted down to be purged by the defense system known as the Safeguard. With a remaining enclave known as the Electro-Fishers facing extinction and all escape routes blocked, the sudden arrival of Killy the Wanderer, on his quest to find a human who possesses the Net Terminal Gene, is the village’s only hope.
