WIN: Redline, Space Battleship Yamato and Gantz Blu-ray Giveaway (CLOSED)


Madman LogoIt’s the end of the year, the traditional time for giving gifts. So to also celebrate three of the hotest properties from Japan – the anime REDLINE, and the live-action adaptations of GANTZ and SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO – now available on DVD and Blu-ray, Madman Entertainment together with The Reel Bits is offering four lucky readers a chance to win a prize pack with all three titles on Blu-ray!

REDLINE is the biggest racing tournament with the most deadly racers in the universe. Only held once every five years, everyone wants to stake their claim to fame, while organised crime and militaristic governments want to leverage the race to their own ends.

GANTZ: Two students are hit by a train in an attempt to save a homeless man’s life. The pair awaken in a mysterious apartment, where they learn that they now belong to “Gantz”, an enigmatic spherical entity. GANTZ outfits the two teens with slick black super powered suits and advanced weaponry, before sending them on numerous game-like missions where they receive points for killing aliens. 100 points will allow them to leave this purgatory like place or send someone else back to life. If they fail, they can perish forever…

SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO: In the year 2194, alien marauders, the Gamilons, bombard the Earth with planetary bombs sent from space. Humanity fights back but is defeated and escapes underground. Five years later, those who remain on the devastated planet gather together for one last plan to save the Earth. Armed with mysterious alien technology and an old battleship called the “Yamato”, they embark on a quest to find a device that has the power to save humanity from destruction.
