I'm glad they announced the series as early as possible as I find it depressing when there's no known upcoming Tezuka products in the air. When that happens, how can we even be sure that there will ever be something new? Knowing about this or the upcoming DVD release of Dororo or the live-action Ast...

I'm totally unconvinced we'll get anything about the reboot, but we'll see. I'm curious about what their next big secret announcement will be though, since I can't deny that both Astro Boy and Shenmue were orbiting around my interests.

The Korean DVDs have near perfect translations, but only cover the first half of the series and seem to be rather rare nowadays... Gmarket only has vol. 1 out of 6 right now (and don't pay attention to the 7-disc boxset, that's actually the 80's series). I did get extra copies of vol.1-3 (already so...

I'm thinking the DVDs you saw were probably the Australian release, which are pre-restoration. That Anime Lab trailer looks just like the US DVDs to me. Or maybe it's a downscale of the new Blu-rays, which would give it a slight edge, but I don't think it is.

Yeah the US DVD set featured a massive restoration of the show done from Japan. It's so crisp and perfect the only thing that could've been left to improve is digitally remove sprinkles of hair here and there, although the simple fact we can see them so well is a testament to how good the picture qu...

What's on the first one, just the theme?
I guess no special features except the dual sound tracks and closed captions.


First track is all episodes in continuous play.

And no, no extras.

This is the original airing as we watched it. I think this is Fauna's recording.

It's very likely a Japanese dub wasn't even made by that point. ;) We're mostly excited to hear the Japanese one for the very first time next week.

"So far we have scripts, we have a teaser, and the next step will be to announce which TV stations will join us in this adventure." That's literally it. That quote is just talking about Shenmue for the images. "Shenmue 3 for which the reveal of new images will be one of the highlights of the next ed...

[QUOTE=fafner;236165]Bootlegs are done by professionals since years already: they don't sell burnt DVDs anymore. Even if the DVD is professional-looking, the content may still not be legit.

I did not expect the character models to be similar to Tezuka's style, but rather I expected them to be similar to the style that Kuroo is drawn in. I was happily surprised that that wasn't the case. Overall, I enjoyed this and will admit that it was better than I thought it would be. Same here. I ...
