Section23 Films has revealed that Sentai Filmworks will be releasing Gatchaman Fighter on DVD. Gatchaman Fighter will be released on July 4 and will feature the original Japanese audio with English Subtitles.
Gatchaman Fighter is the third anime series in the Gatchman franchise. Up to this point the series has not seen a full uncut release in North America so this will be the first time it will be available in the country. Saban Entertainment dubbed the series along with Gatchman II under the name “, Saban’s Eagle Riders.” The first 13 episodes aired in North America, however the entire series aired in both Australia and Europe.
Sentai Filmworks provided a synopsis for the series.
The fight against Leader X was finally over, but a small portion of his evil remained and regenerated into Leader Z! Now, with the aid of the monstrous Count Egobossler, the Gatchaman team’s arch-foe is out to destroy the world again, and even though their ranks have been decimated, the Gatchaman force has no choice but to keep fighting. To combat their new foes, they’ll need new weapons and new allies, but their mission remains the same: protect the Earth and Mankind, no matter the cost. And that cost may prove to be the ultimate one when the new Gatchafencer blade wielded by Ken turns out to be a double-edged sword.
