A trailer for Manga UK's release of Mardock Scramble: The First Compression this week on Blu-ray and DVD. This anime film marks the beginning of studio GoHands' animated trilogy based on Tow Ubukata's sci-fi novel series. This is the second attempt at adapting said novel into an anime project, after Geneon's failed attempt at a Mardock Scramble OVA - which they cancelled in December 2006. The original novel is about a former prostitute named Rune Balot, who dies as her body is burned by a devious gambler named Shell. However she resurrects as a powerfully advanced cyborg, and sets herself on a path for revenge. Now a cyborg, Balot has not only physical powers, but the ability to disrupt social environments. She chases after Shell, his partner-in-crime Boiled, and faces down a variety of insane villains in this pulse-pounding cyberpunk noir adventure.
