North American anime publisher Sentai Filmworks have announced a brand new line of products they will be rolling out over the coming months known as ‘Sentai Selects’. This program seeks to showcase anime which have stood the test of time by remaining popular to this day and being memorable works of their genre.
Although only providing information on one title to date, Sentai claim that a “wide variety of titles have been included in this line to assure that something fresh and different is available in every release”. They also claim that these releases are being curated to provide fans with new experiences without costing a fortune.
The debut release in Sentai Selects will be the sci-fi action movie Appleseed, which will include enhanced Blu-ray audio and double-sided cover artwork. More information on this release and more titles in the Sentai Selects line will be released soon.

The Sentai Selects line was created for those who have recently become interested in anime and wish to expand their libraries with classic shows, as well as those who may have missed their chance to own these titles during their first run. Our hope is to provide an ideal situation where both new and old fans alike can enjoy these must own anime at an affordable entry price.
Information on Appleseed
Appleseed explores the society of Earth’s last city, Olympus, which rose from the ashes of global war on the backs of Bioroids, artificial clones who make up half the city’s population. Under the guidance of a supercomputer, humanity’s last survivors enjoy peace, but only on the surface. Human terrorists within the military seek a return to power and clash with the government’s forces led by Deunan, a legendary soldier and Brialeos, who is more machine than human.
