I do believe Discotek shall be getting a fair amount of my money this year.

Also hope we can get a release date on the English dub of Pizza Cats soon. I'd love to have that for nostalgia purposes of course.

Well, that narrows out Gunbuster, Space Adventure Cobra, Five Star Stories, Macross DYRL, or any LoGH movies. Could be something like Zeorymer, Genma Taisen, Bubblegum Crisis, or Giant Robo; it's anyone's guess. I'm definitely guessing on something that's old over new, as is Discotek's style. I doubt it'll be any of the Gundams or Patlabors, those will need a bit more deep pockets than what Discotek can grab at, so I'm betting those properties will go on to Sentai. I suppose if anyone was grabbing at BGC, it'd be FUNi, since they have now set a precedent of licensing older anime on BD with Tenchi. I don't think it'll be SDF Macross, but that definitely fits the qualifications. And I guess it'll be something that Japan's already had out on BD for a while, so likely not Giant Robo.
.


Are BD and DVD rights different? Because Animeigo still has the rights to BGC. Their website is still selling it.

I'm guessing Discotek's mystery title is Perfect Blue. Discotek has been reluctant to release BDs unless it has broader market appeal, and Satoshi Kon is reasonably popular outside of anime fans as well. The BD has been out in Japan for ages now so a small company like Discotek getting BD rights for it shouldn't be tough.

Perfect Blue is a bold claim. I would beyond ecstatic if that were the case, but I doubt it.

So buying! Very Happy

Hopefully we see a repeat of Fist of The North Star where they get the series & 5th movie if these discs sell well enough with the possibility of them getting the OVAs afterwards and maybe Omega too.

And Discotek also has an upcoming Blu-ray release that they could be announcing next month (the hints so far are listed below):

1/22/13:
- "Looks like we will have at least one anime Blu Ray title released in 2013. It's a license that we haven't announced yet. Should be able to announce it next month!"
- "This title has a dub"
- "Its not Mamo"
- "Its something we haven't announced"
- "It's something that was on DVD before. We will also release it on DVD again in better quality. This particular title isn't Lupin. But we may have a Blu Ray Lupin title in the future if all goes well."

Looks like you're right. Now I'm really wondering what it could be.

Join Yattaro, Skashee, and Pururun at Pizza Cats, the most popular place in Edoropolis. On the surface, they're a trio of goofball delivery cats, but their actual identity is as a Secret Ninja Trio, the Nyankees! broadcast in 1991 and created by legendary studio Tatsunoko Productions (Gatchaman, Speed Racer), Legendary Ninja Cats would become famous around the world in its dubbed form, Samurai Pizza Cats. This boxset presents the show in its original, uncut edition for the first time outside of Japan, featuring the original Japanese audio with English subtitles on all 54 episodes.
