RIGHT STUF’S NOZOMI ENTERTAINMENT Announces the Remastered TOWARD THE TERRA Movie for November 25, 2008

First Region 1 DVD release of film based on Keiko Takemiya’s To Terra… manga

GRIMES, IA, September 4, 2008 – Anime producer and distributor Right Stuf, Inc. and Nozomi Entertainment are pleased to announce the first North American DVD release of the TOWARD THE TERRA movie on November 25, 2008.

The upcoming edition of the Toward the Terra film, which has been described as “a genre classic” by SCIFI.com’s Sci Fi Weekly, will feature remastered video footage from its 2007 Japanese DVD release, Japanese audio and English-language subtitles.

This motion picture adaptation of Keiko Takemiya’s ground-breaking manga was produced by Toei Animation (Captain Harlock, Dragon Ball / Dragon Ball Z, Galaxy Express 999) and is a forerunner to the Toward the Terra television series, released in North America by Bandai Entertainment.

Takemiya’s original manga, known as To Terra… (Terra e…), won both the prestigious Seiun Award for science-fiction manga and the Shogakukan Manga Award. It is published for English-speaking audiences by Vertical, Inc.

Visit terra.rightstuf.com for more information about the Toward the Terra movie and to pre-order the DVD.


In the future, mankind’s seemingly utopian society is strictly controlled by the government, and anything that threatens to disrupt the status quo is ruthlessly suppressed. When 14-year-old Jomy begins to question the way the society is run, he suddenly becomes a target for both the government and the Mu, an outcast race with extra-sensory abilities who have been fighting against the government for generations. Now, each is determined to hunt him down – one to kill him and the other to save him.

DVD Features:
Scene access, Dolby Digital dual mono audio for Japanese dialogue, English subtitles and English on-screen translations, plus U.S. trailer and Nozomi trailers.
