Sentai Filmworks’ License for Mardock Scramble Expires

By: Anime Herald September 24, 20180 Comments

It appears that this one is scrambling off to new horizons.

On September 22, Sentai Filmworks sent a notice to their email newsletter subscribers, stating that Mardock Scramble was going out of print. The publisher announced that they would offer the series in its entirety for a 70% discount, while supplies last, via the Sentai Filmworks online store.

We reached out to Sentai Filmworks and confirmed that the license has expired. In an email statement, the publisher stated “Mardock Scramble is leaving the Sentai Filmworks catalog. The blu-ray trilogy is on sale at 70% off while supplies last.”

Mardock Scramble is a trilogy of three films, which were released between November 11, 2010 and September 29, 2012.

Susumu Kudo (Dies irae, Ghost in the Shell: Arise) directed the features at GoHands, with the team of Jun Nakai (GATE, Silver Spoon) and Shingo Suzuki (Shanghai Dragon) providing character designs. Tow Ubukata (Fafner franchise, Psycho-Pass 2) wrote the scripts.

Sentai Filmworks describes the features as:

Murdered by a sadistic slayer of women, Rune Balot finds herself reborn for one purpose: to bring her killer to justice. But even knowing the identity of her murderer, proving he’s the one responsible for her death won’t be easy, especially when the murderer himself has forgotten his crimes. With the help of Doctor Easter, the man who restored her to life, and Oeufcoque, an intelligent, self-aware universal item capable of assuming the form and function of anything from a gun to a mouse, to a lady’s glove, Rune will have to find the proof to convict a vicious killer without dying a second time. In a world of black market body parts, high-stakes gambling, and lurid violence, justice will be written in blood as vengeance hit the streets in MARDOCK SCRAMBLE!
