THE DEAD AND THE DYING: COMING TO A STORE NEAR YOU!
23 Dec 2011
Did you think we were going to end the year without one more licensing announcement? I hope not because what we have installed for you are a couple o' doozies!
Siren Visual are proud to announce the region 4 release of Princess Resurrection and the long anticipated sequel to When They Cry - Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai!
Released in Japan in 2008 Princess Resurrection focuses on one Hiro Hiyorimi who is caught up with the feuding royal family of the Monster Realm after an unfortunate accident: crushed to death by falling steel pylons. His subsequent revival by a woman who introduces herself as ‘Hime’ (Japanese for princess) works to his favour, but there’s a a catch…it appears Hiro has become a semi-immortal warrior who Hime needs to aid her in her fight to become the future head of the royal family!
A supernatural horror-comedy this series is chock full of violence and monsters that it’ll be sure to entertain! Comprised of 26 episodes over 4 DVD’s, Princess Resurrection will see DVD release in March.
HIGURASHI NO NAKU KORO NI KAI
Oh yes, you’ve been demanding and here we are to provide! The sequel to When They Cry, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai provides the answers to all those questions that we were all left wondering after the end of the startling and chilling first series.
For those unfamiliar, When They Cry is based on a visual novel. It’s June 1983 in the rural village Hinamizawa. A curse appears to plague the Watanagashi Festival: every year for the past four years someone is killed and another goes missing. This year is particularly special as the characters are unknowingly forced to relive this time, again and again. It’s a twisted blend of cute and funny with a dash of brutal violence here and there and the answers to the town’s constant time loop is thrillingly revealed.
Never before released outside of Japan, this is an anime title exclusive to Siren Visual. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai is comprised of 24 episodes which shall be split into two parts. Part 1 will hit stores in March with pre-orders available after the New Year. Part 2 will follow shortly afterwards.
Due to the complicated release history of When They Cry, the second season will not contain an English dub. This is also part of the reason why the second series is sticking to its Romanised Japanese title, but when learning the answers to the mysteries of Hinamizawa we say it's a fair trade off!
