TOWARD THE TERRA Movie
In response to fan requests, Right Stuf and Nozomi announced the first-ever North American DVD release of the TOWARD THE TERRA movie. (Right Stuf had previously released the title on VHS and laserdisc.) This classic film adaptation of Keiko Takemiya’s ground-breaking, science-fiction manga was produced by Toei Animation and is a forerunner to the Toward the Terra TV series, soon-to-be released by Bandai Entertainment. Takemiya’s original manga, known as To Terra (Terra e…), is published for English-speaking audiences by Vertical, Inc. The new DVD release will feature Japanese audio and English-language subtitles.
The Toward the Terra movie depicts a future where mankind’s seemingly utopian society is strictly controlled by the government, which ruthlessly suppresses anything that threatens to disrupt the status quo. 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 that possesses extra-sensory abilities and has been fighting against the government for generations. Now, each group is determined to hunt him down – one to kill him and the other to save him.
