Kiyokazu Arai's highly popular comic BASIC'N, which was serialized in Login and Famitsu magazines and published by ASCII Comix (now (c) MSX Association), has been turned into an animation.

BASIC'N (or BASIC-Kun, Mr. BASIC) is the first volume of the Top 4 Animation series and captures the original atmosphere of the comic. Relive your old gamer days when you played Mario until your parents got angry, wasted tons of money playing Xevious in the arcade, and wrote BASIC mini-programs on your beloved microcomputer.

In addition to the normal package, the Special Limited Edition version includes a BASIC'N T-shirt. Interestingly, this DVD has been taken into production due to direct consumer demand.

A sample movie is available in Quicktime format.
