Earlier this week, VIZ Media announced that it will release a physical version of the anime film Blame! on Blu-ray and DVD on March 27. Previously available only on Netflix, the home video release will include some special features not seen in the original digital release.
In BLAME!, an “infection” in the past has caused automated systems to spiral out of order, 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 being hunted down and purged by the defense system known as the Safeguard. In a tiny corner of the city, a little enclave known as the Electro-Fishers is facing eventual extinction, trapped between the threat of the Safeguard and dwindling food supplies. A girl named Zuru goes on a journey to find food for her village, only to inadvertently cause doom when an observation tower senses her and summons a Safeguard pack to eliminate the threat. With her companions dead and all escape routes blocked, the only thing that can save her now is the sudden arrival of Killy the Wanderer, on his quest for the Net Terminal Genes, the key to restoring order to the world.
The BLAME! Blu-ray edition will carry an MSRP of $24.98 U.S. / $29.99 CAN. A standard DVD-only edition will also be available with an MSRP of $19.98 U.S. / $24.99 CAN. Audio featuring English, Japanese, and Spanish dialogue options are available along with English and Spanish subtitles. Notable bonus features for the home media editions include a “Making of BLAME!” documentary and a Blu-ray exclusive art gallery.
