The Lying King

It's disgusting that we'll never see an English release of the last 'Kimba' anime because of Disney. The company had the balls to issue a 'cease and desist' order against Tezuka productions over the release of that film which came out at the same time as the Lion King. Maybe Japan should have follow...

Re: 176 Robot Wars (part two)

Some DVD players can be hacked to do multi-region. I have an Oppo-video DVD player that is set to play all regions. All I had to do was enter a 'cheat code' via the remote control.

Re: Cobalt Images!

You'd almost think Ladd got the name from Jetter Mars, but Mars was a few years later. Perhaps Tezuka got the name from Ladd?

Re: Atom: The Beginning (2017 Anime Discussion)

Ran was the prototype for Uran? I guess she met a tragic end, and years later Ochanomizo created a sister for Atom in her image? (I thought there was something to her hairstyle). As for Atom in the manga, looks like they took the idea for his appearance from 'Pluto'. What's with the image in the 'fi...
