After announcing it on the convention circuit a few weeks back, Sentai Filmworks has brought out the formal announcement that they've acquired the rights to the Sunrise anime series Cluster Edge
, both the twenty-five episode TV run and the 3 OVAs that followed up. It'll be released on sub-only DVD later in 2012. It will also get digital distribution through various partners.
Sentai Filmworks is pleased to announce their acquisition of Cluster Edge. This Sci-Fi spectacular, with animation production by SUNRISE, consists of 25 episodes, plus 3 OVA episodes and was directed by Masashi Ikeda (Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, Inuyasha), features character designs by Yoshihito Hishinuma (Inuyasha) and Wan Komatsuda, and music by Takayuki Negishi (Tokyo Majin, RIN – Daughters of Mnemosyne).
Cluster Edge Academy isn’t just any school; it’s THE school, where the offspring of the elite come together to prepare for their roles running a world where artificial soldiers and religious sects are major factors in the battle for total control. Which may be part of why new transfer student Agate Fluorite doesn’t quite seem to fit in. It’s not just that Agate’s enthusiastic attitude stands out among the somber, brooding balance of the student body. There’s something about him that demands notice, even from jaded honors students like Beryl Jasper, and from the moment of arrival he’s been at the center of a series of mysteries that not even Agate understands. Because Agate’s not just another student, he’s part of a something so momentous, and dangerous, that the world that built Cluster Edge may not survive its passing.
Cluster Edge will begin release through select digital outlets soon with a home video release on subtitled DVD to follow.
