HOUSTON, TX, April 11, 2018 – Sentai Filmworks announced today that they have acquired Sunrise Studio’s classic adventure series Aura Battler Dunbine. The 49-episode epic was restored from archival stock and remastered in high definition.
“We are extremely excited to bring this restored and remastered version of Aura Battler Dunbine to fans,” said John Ledford, President & CEO of Sentai Filmworks. “The transfer is absolutely stunning and brings an incredible level of detail and vibrancy to this classic sci-fi series.”
Based on the novel, The Wings of Rean by Yoshiyuki Tomino, acclaimed writer and director of the popular Mobile Suit Gundam series, Aura Battler Dunbine weaves a rich fantasy backdrop with powerful mechas and complex characters to create a timeless story of good versus evil, sacrifice and love.
Transported from his home in Tokyo, a seemingly ordinary 18-year-old Shou Zama finds himself in a new world known as Byston Well, a country that has been torn apart by overlord Drake Luft. Refusing to participate in Luft’s evil plans, Shou joins the resistance where he uses his incredible Aura Powers to fight for freedom inside a lavender-colored mecha.
Featuring the voice talents of Shigeru Nakahara (Dragon Ball Super, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing), Mika Doi (One Piece, Tokyo Ghoul) and Maria Kawamura (Neon Genesis, Samurai Champloo), Aura Battler Dunbine will continue to captivate audiences with its 2018 release.
Aura Battler Dunbine will soon be available on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
