Cyberpunk Anime ‘Goku Midnight Eye’ Is Getting A Blu-Ray Release

Fans of retro anime received some news with the announcement that Discotek Media is bringing the cyberpunk 80s film series ‘Goku Midnight Eye’ to home video on Blu-ray. The box set will include both parts of the OVA and will include both the original Japanese audio as well as the English dub version featuring Jason Blum.

The two-part television film ‘Goku Midnight Eye’ was based on the 1987 manga Buichi Terasawa. The films were released in 1989 by Madhouse under the direction of Yoshiaki Kawajiri (Wicked City, Ninja Scroll) with Ryūzō Nakanishi who worked on the screenplay.

Discotek announced the release date as October 31, 2023, just in time for Halloween. It is currently available for pre-order on the Right Stuf Anime website.

You can take a look at the DVD box set:

Discotek describes the synopsis as follows,

“Goku lives by a simple rule: never get involved with women. But as a private detective in a futuristic Tokyo City, that’s easier said than done. This classic anime features a pair of stories that delve into a sleek and sexy world, filled with deadly cyborgs and alluring demons.

Goku’s cases take him into the heart of danger, whether it’s facing down a powerful and wealthy man who develops mass-murdering weapons, or a crazed experiment wielding ultimate power gone wrong. His one ace in the hole is his cybernetic left eye, which allows him to control any computer system in the world and gain information instantly. It’s his one edge over the bad guys–but even with it, Goku can never see into the hearts of the women who enter his life as quickly as they leave it.”

The manga was released by the Japanese publisher Gentosha in 1987 with Comics One releasing it in the United States with an English version. strives to be an apolitical, balanced and based pop culture news outlet.
