Home Release Preview: Wicked City on Blu-Ray

What we know so far about the English Dub re-release.

A peace treaty has been in effect for hundreds of years to prevent a war between Earth and the Black World. Although it’s set to be renewed, evil forces want to make sure that doesn’t happen. To ensure it does, hard-bitten human Taki Renzaburo (Greg Snegoff) and sexy demon Makie (Alexandra Kenworthy) are charged with protecting a diplomat, Mayart (Mike Reynolds), who holds the key to peace. But, with an army of multidimensional assassins on their trail, it won’t be easy.

Wicked City is a 1987 Japanese OVA neo-noir horror film produced by Video Art and Madhouse for Japan Home Video. Based on Black Guard, the first in a series of six novels of the same name by Hideyuki Kikuchi, the film is the solo directorial debut of Yoshiaki Kawajiri, who also served as the screenwriter (attributed to a pseudonym), character designer, storyboard artist, animation director and a key animator.

Set to release on Blu-Ray, January 9th, 2018
