FTW: 009 Re:Cyborg on DVD

WE’VE got three copies of the anime film, 009 Re:Cyborg on DVD to give away to Meld readers! Jonathan Lian has more on the film and details on how you can score a copy!


In a futuristic world where concepts of justice and peace aren’t the same as they were before, nine cyborgs awaken to do battle against a faceless enemy.

Based on a classic Japanese manga and anime series Cyborg 009, the new and darker re-imagining of the series 009 Re:Cyborg brings back the same characters and exposes them to a different world where our nine heroes reactivate and reassemble to combat a global terrorist threat set to destabilise and bring down modern society.

Renowned for his work in sci-fi anime, director Kenji Kamiyama takes a different approach to the once popular 1960s manga series. Offering plenty of action and emotional conflict between its characters, 009 Re:Cyborg is a surprisingly thoughtful animated blockbuster with a theological angle.

If you’re a fan of director Kamiyama’s previous works like the existential sci-fi anime series Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and politically-minded thriller Eden of the East, then his latest re-telling of the Cyborg 009 franchise might make for a perfect addition to your collection.

Meld Magazine is giving away three copies of 009 Re:Cyborg to readers thanks to Madman Entertainment. To win, simply enter our Rafflecopter competition below.

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
