Australian anime publisher Siren Visual have recently announced pre-orders opening for a title set to launch in February 2014 and a title set to launch in December 2013. To bridge the gap between the two months, the company have recently launched pre-orders for Night Raid 1931 which is set to hit store shelves from the 8th January 2014.
Available as a DVD exclusive release at a price of $49.95, this 13-episode anime features a hybrid (English and Japanese) dub alongside a number of on-disc goodies including 2 OVA episodes and a “special episode” spread over three discs.
The year is 1931, the city is Shanghai. Ten years before America will enter World War II; the hydra’s teeth planted by the first great global conflict are beginning to germinate, hatching into spiders weaving the complex web of plots and conspiracies destined to inevitably draw entire nations, against their will, to the brink of destruction once more.
And caught in the heart of these webs, desperately seeking to seperate lies from truth, is “Sakurai Kikan,” an ultra secret intelligence agency staffed by extraordinarily talented individuals with abilities far beyond those of normal humans.
Their duty: stop the darkest plots and eliminate the greatest threats. But in a city built on intrigue, can even a team of clairvoyants, telepaths and espers stand against the ultimate forces of destiny? As the Japanese Imperial Army rolls across China, documented facts and fantasy intermingle in the breathtaking exploration of alternative history that is Night Raid 1931!
