NOZOMI ENTERTAINMENT Announces the Litebox-style DVD Release of LOST UNIVERSE

GRIMES, IA, April 9, 2014 — Anime producer Nozomi Entertainment is pleased to announce that LOST UNIVERSE will be available on July 1, 2014.

Millie Nocturne has one great goal in her life: to be the best in the universe... at absolutely everything. But when she tries her hand at being the best detective, she ends up an unwilling partner to two people who will change her life forever – Kain Blueriver, the psi-blade-wielding master of the starship Swordbreaker, and Canal, the smart-mouthed holographic image of the ship’s computer!

These are the adventures of this unlikely trio as they hurtle through space, facing off against intergalactic crime lords, rogue starships, hijackers dressed as chickens... and that’s just the tip of the asteroid!
