Enter our One Piece Music Symphony competition

Win Giovanni's Island on Blu-ray!

Giovanni's Island is coming to DVD, Blu-ray and Ultimate Edition on Monday 12th January and thanks to Anime Ltd, we have a copy on Blu-ray to give away.
True to their reputation of masterful storytelling and quality animation, Production I.G achieve effortless elegance in this never before been told story. Exploring the theme of the toll of human conflict, and done so with stunning visuals, Giovanni’s Island succeeds in bringing a feeling of hope and positivity despite the heart wrenching and moving subject. Indeed, it is hard not to fall in love with the striking hand drawn artwork alone. It is extraordinary to think that it is a tale still unknown to the West, we are happy to say that finally, this emotionally engaging story can be re-told.

Available to order from Amazon UK today
