NIS America has annouced that goofball comedy Ghastly Prince Enma Burning Up Premium Edition is available from fine retailers as of yesterday. NIS has a penchant for putting out beautiful, quality anime releases and Ghastly Prince Enma is no exception. Along with the series on two Blu-Ray and two DVD discs, this Premium release comes with a 36 page hardcover full color art book filled with “detailed character bios, illustrations, concept art, roundtable discussions with cast and crew, and an all-new interview with the original author, Go Nagai himself!” This being from the creator of such classic and controversial anime as Cutie Honey and Maninger Z, NIS America promises that Ghastly Prince Enma will “knock your perception of Japanese anime on its butt!”
Here’s the show’s plot, straight from the press release:
Meet the Demon Patrol: a hotheaded demon prince; a sultry, half-naked ice princess; a lusty frog-demon spy; a talking wizard hat… Plus a little girl shows up. This rag-tag group has been charged with the protection of Earth from a multitude of demons who would love nothing more than to bring their world crashing down around them. They’ll face off against a vengeful squid, a somnambulant kittycat, a pot full of snakes, a night-stalking deciduous, a hater of crotches, and even a literal butthead! Descend into an unreality filled with pratfalls, lewd behavior, and enough obscure cultural jetsam to drown us all!
