Manga UK is streaming a trailer for the DD/Blu-ray release of Roujin Z which will be released by Manga UK on behalf of Kaze on the 11th of June.
In the near future mankind has developed advanced technology and modern comforts but one problem remains: the ageing population. It is hoped that technology will once again come to help with a machine called Z-001 that is able to monitor health and provide all necessary care for the elderly replacing doctors and nurses. Kiyuro Takazawa is the first patient to be “volunteered” much to his nurse Haruko’s concern but once the machine interfaces with him it is subject to his desire to go to the beach and the machine goes beserk escaping from the hospital and leading the police on a merry chase leaving it up to Haruko to save him.
