Well if you wanted to part with 15 for an alright price I’d probably be down to buy it.

Looking for Astro Boy Manga Volumes

I thought Id start looking again to see if I can finish getting the old individual manga releases again. If anyone doesn't want em or whatever anymore, I'd be interested in buying some maybe. I know I could get the new omnibus versions, but there's something cool about the old release and I only nee...

Re: Official releases/videos

I check the forums for the upcoming months releases. Seems there’s a listing on the main site though.

Re: Official releases/videos

Seems Madman are doing a 40th anniversary release for the 80s series. I imagine it’ll just repack the disks of what they currently sell, but with a fancier package.

Would be nice if it were a little more, maybe featuring dual audio. But I doubt it.

Re: Astro Boy 03 DVD Re-Release

Difference with PAL/NTSC in this case would be the colour standard and also the frame rate. PAL is 25fps NTSC is 29.97.

Re: Astro Boy 03 DVD Re-Release

The product details on the case itself are correct at least. It surprised me when I saw it, my JB had it in the anime section. Also baffling to me that the company putting this out couldn't track down the old 16:9 masters. It has made me feel like putting in my old disks to watch again though. Lol. ...

Astro Boy 03 DVD Re-Release

Just saw at JBhifi here in Australia that the 03 series has been re-released as a complete set.

Only it seems it uses the NTSC masters and as such says it is a 4:3 image. It's also all put onto only four disks.

Not great, but if anyone still wanted a cheap English complete set, it's back out there.

Re: The supplemental DVD in the 80s bluray 2nd boxset is a gold mine

Yeah, I've been thinking about giving that a shot so I can watch it subtitled in HD. I did a quick test with the Robot Circus subtitles from the Region 1 DVDs and it worked great. No tricky timing issues other than getting the first line of text timed right. I used MakeMKV to save the discs to my h...

Re: 1980s series is streaming in Australia in HD

Yeah they have had it up for quite awhile now, it's not bad, I don't have an active sub to anime lab currently though.
