On June 5 you will realize why there can always be another one!

The Highlander series enters a new dimension June 5th, when Manga Entertainment and Starz Home Entertainment release the animated Highlander: The Search for Vengeance on DVD. In the tradition of Vampire Hunter D and Ninja Scroll, anime wizard Yoshiaki Kawajiri brings his unique visual bravura to the immortal Highlander franchise. Highlander: The Search for Vengeance has an SRP of $19.98, with a pre-book date of April 25, 2007.

In this gripping new adventure, lone warrior Colin MacLeod travels across a desolate landscape searching for the immortal despot Marcus Octavius, who long ago murdered his beloved Moya. Together with his companion, the wise-cracking ghost Amergan, MacLeod discovers New York in ruins, with one monolith fortress dominating a city ravaged by a deadly virus.

MacLeod can save the survivors, but his sword hungers for the blood of one man. He soon discovers the monolith is controlled by the one person he has spent an eternity chasing: Marcus Octavius! Can he finish what he started centuries ago and stop Octavius? Will MacLeod lead New York to freedom or be consumed by insatiable hate? The answer may lie with the beautiful and tough Dahlia, who has a mysterious connection to the departed Moya.

Featuring voiceover talents Scott McNeil (Inuyasha) and Jim Byrnes (Highlander -TV series), Highlander: The Search for Vengeance is produced by Imagi Animation Studios (TMNT) and Davis-Panzer (Highlander movies and series). Manga Entertainment and Starz Home Entertainment are backing the DVD release with a multi-tiered marketing campaign featuring online and print advertising, along with a grassroots publicity push. The DVD release coincides with the 20th Anniversary of the Highlander franchise and will be followed by other Highlander live-action productions, including a theatrical release in September 2007.
