TRSI has let us know that Starblazers Vol. #4 will arrive on 5/1. The 100 minute disc contains episodes 14-17 (dub only of course) and retails for 29.95$.

TRSI has also let us know that the Pioneer's upcoming Kishin Corps release (aka Geo-Armor) that's due on 5/22 has had a price increase from 24.95 to 34.95$. It would seem that this increase is due to the fact that Pioneer has decided to put Kishin Korps out as a 2 disc set, probably in order to maintain a better level of quality. This could also mean more extra features on the set.

TRSI is also listing the Hades Project Zeorymer Vol. #2 for 29.95$ due on 6/15 as well as the mini box set due out the same day with Vol. #1 and Vol. #2 for 49.95$ from DVD Ltd.

ADV has announced some new DVD release dates for Catalog titles. Martian Successor Nadesico Vol. #5 and Neon Genesis Evangelion Vol. #7 will arrive on 5/29 and the first volume of Nadia is slated for 6/19.
