Discotek To Release ‘Galactic Whirlwind Sasuraiger’ On Blu-Ray

‘Galactic Whirlwind Sasuraiger’ is a science fiction mech anime and ran for forty-three episodes. The series was created by Yuu Yamamoto and takes its inspiration from the Jules Verne novel ‘Around The World In Eighty Days.’ It serves as a sequel ‘Galactic Gale Baxingar.’
Discotek Media announced on their Facebook page that they are releasing the series on Blu-Ray for the first time on July 28th, 2022. It will feature the entire series in Japanese with English subtitles.
“Taking its cue from the Jules Verne classic ‘Around the World in 80 Days,’ this final entry in the J9 trilogy is (a) heroic sci-fi adventure, interlaced with catchy songs and set firmly in the J9 universe,” they said.
The show was directed by Takao Yotsuji for the Japanese animation studio Kokusai Eiga-sha. Characters designs were done by Kazuo Komatsubara and mech designs were done by Hiroshi Ohnishi.
Discotek dropped a teaser on their official Twitter account:


RightStuf Anime describes the synopsis as follows,
“Young gambling sharpie I.C. Blues makes the bet of the century against Bloody God, the biggest syndicate boss in the galaxy: Blues has to visit all 50 planets in the Solar System in the space of a year. But since a vast fortune is on the line, Bloody God will stop at nothing to prevent Blues from accomplishing his goal. He has armies on virtually every planet and the most talented hit man in the universe on his payroll.
Fortunately, Blues has resources of his own. In the spirit of the J9 franchise, he assembles a team of young, skilled, charming members: The marksman, Rock, the ace pilot, Beat, and the beautiful, whimsical all-rounder, Birdy. Blues also purchases (on credit) a space train that can transform into a giant robot, Sasuraiger.”
The show is also known as Galactic Gale Sasuraiger, Sasuryger, Sasreiger, Galaxy Whirlwind Sasuraiger, and Wonder Six.
