Its titles include such Osamu Tezuka anime as One-Million Year Trip: Bander Book, Black Jack and Aoi Blink, as well as Tatsunoko Productions anime series such as Yatterman (both the original 1977 series and its 2008 remake) and Tekkaman.
Anime Sols also launched successful crowdfunding campaigns to release the Black Jack, Dear Brother, and Magical Angel Creamy Mami TV anime series on DVD, and attempted similar campaigns for anime such as The File of Young Kindaichi Returns television anime series.
